Milford Junior School Quad Kids.
Written by Jasmine and Sophie
On Wednesday 24th May 2017, the Milford Junior school Quad Kids team went to Mudford Recreation Ground athletics track to compete in the Yeovil Quad Kids athletics competition.
At 12 o’clock, they all walked down to the track and set up their things. A person said “ The adrenaline is phenomenal!” It was a pleasant, unclouded morning and the Milford Quad Kids team were just warming up for their excitable day ahead of them. All of the races completed and even if all of the races were lost, they still made Milford Junior School proud!
Dance Competition @ Millfield
On Friday 19th of April Mrs Cleminson’s dance group adventured off to Millfield to join a dance competition competing against lots of different school.
Soon after they arrived, it was their turn to go on stage and show off what they had been practising. They took the time they had and turned it into something fantastic that they will never forget.
After watching other school great dances, they had a lunch break before watching more dances. Before the judges decision was announced, they all danced to a song called shake it off by Taylor swift. Then was the moment they had all been waiting for - they announced the group that came third place (that wasn’t Milford). Then they announced second place, which was Milford!!!! Sadly Milford didn’t come first but second is very good considering we came 7th last year.

By Sam, Naomi, Beaux and Connie
Thursday 11th May 2017
On Thursday 11th May 2017, some students from Milford Junior School competed in a cricket tournament at West Coker. Two of these people were Callum and Aaron who gave us their point of view of finishing second in the group. Callum stated that he was very happy although they could have done better in particular areas. Aaron said that he felt very good and proud as they tried very hard and only lost to South Petherton (who won the group) who had a few county players amongst them.
Thursday 4th May 2017
On the 4th of May 2017, Milford girls Kwik cricket team and extras and the year 5 boys team went to the old Westlands field(or the new cricket club via Westlands) to play the 2017 kwik cricket tournament against yeovil schools. It started at four o’clock and was meant to end at six o’clock but the girls carried on playing as they where just finishing their last game. First, the girls played against Ash primary and their captain Connie scored an amazing 6 which boosted their score up. Fortunately they won that game and then they moved on to play East coker. When the girls played East coker in the friendly the girls stated’ it wasn’t a challenge’ but this time they had been very challenging. Again Milford won but they where hard to beat. Last but not least, they played Oaklands and smashed them and we won again! Greatly Milford girls had gotten through to the next round. Unfortunately, the boys didn’t, but we can’t win everything.

Buckler’s Mead Academy
By Sam and Darius
On Thursday 23rd February 2017, some year 5 children represented Milford Junior School by competing in the futsal tournament at Bucklers Mead academy. There were two group events and the boys won all of their matches.
They faced Martock in the final and went into a 1-0 lead. Sadly, Martock equalised before half time to make it 1-1 at the interval. In the second half, Milford hit the post twice and the crossbar once. Unfortunately, Martock took advantage of Milford’s missed opportunities and ended up as 3-1 winners.

By Josh and Liam.
On Thursday our year 6s, of Milford junior school, walked up to Bucklers mead. To do 3 different sporting activities,with the help of some year 9 children,on the all weather carpet, Astro turf. It was a great pleasure to show of are sporting talent. One of the activities was a intense, fun penalty shootout between the 3 schools Birchfield , St Michael's and us, Milford. Unfortunately, some of our students got knocked out from the nerve racking penalty shootout. There were 4 people 1 from Bichfield ,1 from St Michael's and 2 from Milford. The finalists from Milford were Kai and Josh. Unluckily enough, Kai got knocked out of the competition and the only pupils left was Josh and 1 pupil from Birchfield. Suddenly, the pupil from Birchfield missed and Josh took the opportunity very well and won the penalty shootout for Milford.

Canoeing at Sutton Bingham (session 2)!!!
By Kai and Harry.
On Friday the 30th of September the year 6 sports leaders went canoeing for 2 hours. We used the kata conoe’s and sit on tops. It was lots of fun. Loads of us fell in and somebody (Kai) fell in eleven times. We started at 3:30pm and finished around 5:45.The water was freezing cold that it was making us shiver.
We went on lots of trips around lake. We also did lots of racing around the lake too. Some of us went on the sit on tops and some of us went on the Kata conoe’s. There was even a resting place in the middle where you could lie down and relax as the other people did the hard work.
In the end I think nearly all of us fell in the freezing cold water.
Coming up to nearly the end of our session we had a look on how many of us we could fit on one boat. We cold only fit seven on a boat, which is one more than the world record. Then it was the end of the session. We would love to go back and do it again.
Netball at Westfield:
By Sophie and Meadow.
Last week, the netball A team played a match at Westfield Academy. They played 3 matches. They drew 1-1 with Ilchester, lost 0-4 to Birchfield and finished off with a fantastic 5-0 victory over St Michaels.

Sports Leaders Kayaking at Sutton Bingham Resevoir
By Sam and Jedd.
Friday 16th September 2016
As we were chosen to be sports leaders for Milford Junior School, we had the amazing opportunity of having a kayaking session at Sutton Bingham Reservoir. The session was taken place from around 3:30pm to around 5:45pm so we could get to school to be collected at 6 o’clock.
The session was started with a well manage safety check which included putting on buoyancy aides. Next we collected the paddles and played a small warm up game with them. Before we knew it we were in the reservoir- in kayaks of course. We learnt how to make a raft and to go forward and turn right and left.
Later we played cops and robbers where we had to run away or chase each other. The cops had to gently tap on the robber’s boats twice to capture them. We also played Sharks and Dolphins which is basically Bulldog. To finish off we did raft running on the boats and loads of us fell in. overall, it was a great trip and we can’t wait to do it again on the 30th.
