Y5/6 Girls’ Football match at home vs Meanwood (11/10/19) – Lost 7-2
11 October 2019
The girls played their first home game of the season as they hosted Meanwood on Friday. Despite losing, on another day the score line could have been a lot closer; we were unlucky to concede some of the goals that we did, but we are still learning the game and how to play together as a team which will no doubt take time! We have our next game at home against St Theresa’s next Friday.
Y5/6 Boys’ Football match away at Deighton Gates (9/10/19) – Lost 4-2
9 October 2019
This week the boys played their first game of the season as they travelled to Deighton Gates. Despite conceding two goals early on the team kept their focus and persevered. Although they were always trailing throughout the match we were able to make it closer and most importantly, stayed focused throughout! It was a very positive first game for the team and we look forward to building on this when we host Bardsey next week.
Y5/6 Girls’ Football match away at Wetherby St Joseph’s (2/10/19) – Won 3-1
2 October 2019
The new Y5/6 Girls team looked to get their season underway this week as they made the trip over to Wetherby to play St Joseph’s. As it was the team’s first game together the girls did really well to keep their shape and create their own chances. Even though the halftime score was 0-0 the team was playing some great football. This continued into the second half and within a few minutes of the restart the girls were 2-0 up; the first when Mia’s corner was brilliantly finished by Lucy, and the second when a deflected shot ricochet in. Even though St Joseph’s pulled one back, the team showed a tremendous amount of composure to keep calm and even extended the lead when Mia added Bramham’s third. A fantastic result to start the season, and we’re looking forward to playing Meanwood at home next week!

Healthy Schools Presentation Event (12/7/19)
12 July 2019
To finish the year, both Bramham and Shadwell took pupils to the Health & Well-being presentation event at Leeds Town Hall to accept the Healthy School’s Award and the MindMate Friendly achievement. It was a great day and a brilliant recognition of all the hard work the Federation does to help our children in all areas of their lives!
Y5/6 Girls Tag Rugby Leeds Finals (9/7/19) – 3rd Place!
9 July 2019
This year we were again able to take every girl in Y5 & 6 to the Leeds Finals Competition. The competition itself had been postponed from earlier in the season because of the weather, merging the Regionals with the Finals to form one big end of year competition. We had two teams entering, and with the best teams in the city in attendance, each team was successful in their own right. The Bramham B-team were able to play well against some difficult opposition, showing the willingness to take responsibility and push themselves to do their very best! Our A-team qualified from their difficult group by winning their games, and they then won their quarter-final. They showed great resilience and maturity in challenging situations. Although they lost their semi-final, we were still able to finish third out of all the teams in Leeds; the best we have ever done! It was a great way to end the year of school sport. The girls should be so proud of how well they’ve done and what they’ve achieved!
Y6 Boys Dodgeball Tournament at John Smeaton (27/6/19)
27 June 2019
With the Y6 girls having competed in their tournament earlier in the year, it was the boys’ turn to compete this time. They were able to grow into the tournament as it went on, progressing through the games and making the most of their chances. The boys were able to take responsibility for their play and communicate with each other to create some great shots.
Y5/6 Girls Football Tournament (19/6/19)
19 June 2019
Once again, we were able to take all the girls from Y5 & 6 to the annual St Bart’s Football Tournament at Goals. It was a great day out, with all children able to take part and compete together; both of our teams played well and we had some tremendous results! The tournament itself contains over 80 teams, with only 16 making it to the next round, so the standards are high and qualification is tough; especially as all the games take place in cages where the ball doesn’t go out which is a different style to what the girls are used to!
Y5/6 Netball League Finals at Cookridge (17/6/19)
17 June 2019
Having qualified through the East Leeds League for the first time, Bramham therefore made it to the League Finals Day; a competition where all the best league teams play off against each other. In a very difficult tournament, which included teams that were going onto compete in the West Yorkshire Finals, the team fought valiantly, narrowly losing. Despite the result the team was rightly pleased with what they had done to get to this stage and can look back on the season with pride!
Y5/6 Netball Regional Finals at Corpus Christi (6/6/19) – 3rd Place!
6 June 2019
After qualifying from their competition to get here, the Netball team competed at the Regional Finals this week, with only the winners having the opportunity to go through to the City Finals. The team played brilliantly all the way through the group stages and were also able to make it to the semi-final. Despite playing well in their semi-final, they were ultimately unable to overcome Deighton Gates, who won in the end; meaning Bramham unfortunately didn’t qualify for the City Finals. Although we just missed out, you can’t take away from the brilliant Netball, or the great attitude shown by the team; they should be really proud of themselves!
Y6 Mixed Football at home vs Shadwell (23/5/19) – Won 6-4
23 May 2019
For a last game of the season for Y6, we put on a game where anyone from Year 6 who wanted to play could do so. A Shadwell team came to Bramham and despite the very warm conditions, played out a very entertaining game with lots of action and some great goals to signal a brilliant final match of the season!
Y5/6 Netball match at home vs Shadwell (21/5/19) – Lost 18-2
21 May 2019
For the final Netball match of the season, we hosted Shadwell team which had won all their games so far. Even though the game didn’t go how we had hoped, it was a good learning experience and gives the team lots to think about going into the City Regionals in the next week or so.
