School Games Inclusion Festival
@ Manor High
Some of our children attended an inclusion festival at Manor High School. They had a fantastic time and was able to try lots of different sports. A big thanks to the children of Manor High School who supported them throughout the morning.
Year 5 held a hockey competition in their houses for our Nursery, Year 1 and Year 3 children. They definitely modelled many of the School Game values for the younger children and celebrated all the skills they have learned during curriculum time. After a very close call, John were announced the winners.
The Year 6s held a dodge ball competition, showing our Reception, Year 2 and Year 4s how intra school. games are done! All teams shown great teamwork and passion, but only one team could be announced winners of the tournament and that was Mark.
The results from both competitions were combined and our overall winner of the School Games Competitions 2018 were John. They were presented the Mr Tynan's Fair Play Trophy during our School Games Assembly. Well done John!

Fred the Red Fantastic Fans
St. Teresa's Primary has teamed up with Manchester United Foundation. Part of this partnership means that, over the Autumn term, we are able to offer 28 lucky children spaces on our Fred the Red Fantastic Fans club.
Every child should be receiving at least 60 minutes of exercise every day. Fred the Red's club will give these children that 60 minutes on Thursdays 3:30pm - 4:30pm. Members from the Manchester United Foundation will be running the activities with Miss Brien supporting. The club is not aimed at a particular sport, but aims to get your child more active and build their confidence.
If you have received a letter inviting you then get yourself down! It is fun, will boost your skills and energy, and we are also expecting a visit from Fred the Red himself!
