Overall we were able to win 3 of our 6 games and improved so much from the experience. The players also represented the school brilliantly and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tournament!

The team went to Deighton Gates for league game this week. Playing against an excellent team, it was a tough game for the squad.

Y5/6 Netball match away at Highfield – Lost 7-0 (7/2/20)
7 February 2020
In their first Netball match of the season the squad travelled to Highfield. For the majority of the team it was their first time playing competitive Netball at all and for most of the game they were able to keep the score close. It was unfortunate that towards the end Highfield were able to pull away and convert more of their chances. Still, we will use the experience to better ourselves in the future.
Y5 Football away at St Paul’s - Lost 7-0 (5/2/20)

It was always going to be a difficult game as it was our first time playing together as a team and the children were mature enough to not let the score line bother them and continue to put in 100% throughout!

They also represented the school in a great manner, proving they are ready to compete against more schools in the future!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football West Yorkshire Qualifiers (15/1/20)
15 January 2020
This week we took our girls’ football team to the West Yorkshire Qualifiers. The team did really well to adapt to a style of football they weren’t used to, with the ball never going off the pitch and bouncing off the walls. Although we were able to win some games, including one 5-0! We also came up against some very strong opposition and with only one team being able to qualify we just missed out. Still, it was a great learning opportunity for the team!

15 January 2020
After a busy afternoon for the girls, it was the boys’ turn to compete in the evening as they travelled to Deighton Gates for their cup game. Despite Deighton Gates having the majority of the possession and chances on goal, our boys defended brilliantly and work so hard as a team, managing to take the game all the way to penalties! Although we just missed out in the shoot out, the team can feel very proud of how they are performing this season!

Special mention to our girls Speed Bouncers who even came first in the area at their event!

The boys hosted Primrose Lane Primary on Friday in their latest league encounter. The team were riding high off their latest victory and the excellent performances continued as they took the lead twice against very good opposition with two excellent goals from Theo! Although they weren’t able to hang on to the lead the boys showed great attacking endeavour and a continued willingness to improve throughout all their games so far this season; they should be very proud of their efforts!
