Y5/6 Netball match away at Alwoodley (1/5/19) – Won 8-2
1 May 2019
Looking to continue their good start to the Netball season the team travelled to Alwoodley knowing a good result would put them in a great position near the top of the league. Despite a shaky start, the team got it together towards the end of the first quarter and were able to pull away from there, grabbing a brilliant 8-2 win, which not only sees them shoot up the league, but also helps out with their point difference.
Y5/6 Boys Football at Primrose Lane (30/4/19) – Lost 3-0
30 April 2019
In their final league match of the season, the boys travelled to Primrose Lane. Having already won the league, Primrose were a great team but the boys are always up for a challenge, no matter who they are playing, and demonstrated this again today. Having lost games earlier in the season by greater margins, the boys had been narrowing the score lines recently, just through an increased focus, concentration and desire. The fact Primrose were only 1-0 up at half time was down to how hard the boys worked together, closing down space and keeping their shape. Primrose got a couple more goals in the second half, but the game didn’t get away from the team. In the past the boys would have lost focus for a few minutes, allowing the other team to run up the score, but not tonight. It was a great performance from the team in what has been a good learning curve of a season!
Y4 Girls Football match away at Shadwell (23/4/19) – Lost 1-0
23 April 2019
For the first time in Bramham history, Y4 girls had a football match! Keen to show what they were made of; the girls were very excited to play their first game. Although they conceded early into the match, there was always going to need to be some time to settle in and organise themselves. Once that happened the team were able to make some positive plays and get some shots at goal, with Alice even hitting the post on two occasions! It was a really fun game, and everything the girls need to work on for the future will come through just playing matches; which is what we plan to do!
Y5/6 Netball Heat at Temple Newsam (16/4/19)
16 April 2019
We took the whole Netball squad to the local competition today as they looked to try and qualify for the Regional Competition later in the year. Having the whole squad meant we could split them into two teams, allowing the children to play lots of matches and take responsibility for their own teams doing well. Both sets of children made the most of their opportunity, with not only positive play, but one team even managed to win the tournament and qualify for the next round; an amazing achievement!
Y5/6 Girls Football vs Holy Family – Lost 1-0 & Drew 0-0 (22/3/19)
22 March 2019
Playing two games in a day can be tough, but that’s exactly what the girls’ football team did today when they played Holy Family! Despite conceding an early goal in the first game, they girls more than matched their opponents throughout the rest of their matches; resulting in a narrow lose and a 0-0 draw. The points they received saw them move further up the table.
Y6 Girls Dodgeball Tournament (14/3/19)
14 March 2019
This week, we took a group of our Y6 girls to the East Leeds Dodgeball Tournament. Having done some practise in P.E. the girls demonstrated their great throwing power and technique, as well as their ability to make some great catches. It was a really fun evening and the girls enjoyed themselves thoroughly!
Y5/6 Netball match at home vs Deighton Gates (13/3/19) – Lost 9-4
13 March 2019
Having won their first game of the season, the team hosted Deighton Gates in the league and despite losing, for the majority of the game it was a close match, with Deighton Gates having one dominant quarter where they scored the majority of their points. The team played well and were able to score some of their own, and shouldn’t let the result take away from a positive performance.
Y5/6 Tag Rugby Regionals at Crawshaw Academy (5/3/19)
5 March 2019
Once again, we took all the children from Y5 & 6 to the Tag Rugby Regional Competition. Taking three teams meant all children got a chance to compete and show what they were capable of, with lots of great tries and tagging on display! Our A-team even made it all the way to the semi-final, narrowly losing meaning they just missed out on a place in the City Finals. Although they were disappointed not to qualify, they’d competed so well all tournament and couldn’t have given any more to the team! Finishing third overall is a great achievement!
Y5/6 Netball match away at Carr Manor (27/2/19) – Won 7-3
27 February 2019
The Netball team played their first match of the season as they travelled to Carr Manor. Having worked hard in P.E. and training, the team demonstrated their passing and moving, as well as some excellent shooting and a desire to rebound the ball; not only did this make for a great game, they also were able to grab a brilliant win to put them to the top of the league!
Y5/6 Boys Football away at Primrose Lane (26/2/19) – Lost 7-0
26 February 2019
For their next game the boys’ team travelled to Primrose Lane. Primrose are top of the league, and a very good team, but the boys were keen to pick up where they left off in their last game against Deighton Gates and build on that performance. Although the opposition were clearly a good team, we were able to compete, just trailing 2-0 at half time. Despite the last few minutes of the game getting away from us a bit towards the end, where Primrose scored the majority of their goals, there were again lots of positives to take away from the performance itself!
Y4/5/6 Cross Country City Finals at Temple Newsam (6/2/19)
6 February 2019
This week we took Alfie and Eva from our Y6 class to the Cross Country City Finals where they raced against the best runners from the whole of Leeds! Having done brilliantly just to qualify, they both ran excellent races and got great scores in tricky conditions. Representing Bramham at City level is a fantastic achievement and we’re all very proud of them!
Y5/6 Boys Football away at Deighton Gates (25/1/19) – Lost 4-1
25 January 2019
For their second game in a week, the boys made the second trip of the season to Deighton Gates, at team who had beaten us 11-0 earlier in the season. Although the boys’ season may not be panning out how they had hoped in terms of results, nobody could question their desire and willingness to give games a go; demonstrated tonight just by turning up to a game which others may have stayed away from. As it happened, the focus throughout the game which the boys had been looking for, was there! Although they went into half time trailing, it was only 1-0; the team looked committed all over the pitch and were even able to equalise in the second half through a great goal from Charlie! Despite losing the game in the end, it was the best performance all season from the team, who played their hearts out and can be very proud of themselves!
