Y5/6 Girls’ Football match away at Shadwell (27/11/19) – Won 3-1
27 November 2019
The girl’s team played a friendly match this week as they travelled to play a Shadwell team. The whole team played brilliantly and with more experienced players absent, were able to take responsibility for the game and how the team did. Sophia was even able to score all 3 goals for Bramham, which was a great personal achievement, but it was the whole team who really earned this win!
Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Competition at Temple Learning Centre (26/11/19) – Winners!
26 November 2019
We took our Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics team to Temple Learning Academy to compete in the first round of the Regional Competition. The tournament included multiple relay races as well as throwing and jumping events. It was great to be competing as such a big team and everyone played their part and did their best. Their efforts meant that we were able to win the whole competition and have qualified for Regional Finals! What a brilliant achievement!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football matches away at Shadwell (8/11/19) – Lost 1-0 & 3-1
8 November 2019
The girls’ football team played both league matches against Shadwell this week. In the first game they were unlucky to lose to a last minute goal, having worked so hard and created some chances of their own. The second fixture was a much more open event, with Shadwell scoring a couple of quick goals early on and we were chasing the game from that point. We were able to get a goal back via a great run from Mia, but pushing for the equaliser always left us susceptible to the counter attack; and that’s what happened when Shadwell added a third. Still, two valiant performances from the team who should be proud of their efforts!
Y5/6 Boys’ Football match away at Bardsey (6/11/19) – Lost 3-0
6 November 2019
The boys’ team travelled to Bardsey this week in their latest league fixture. An even first half saw a few chances and a lot of the ball in midfield. Bardsey were able to take the lead when they seized on a Bramham goal kick and finished their chance. Although Bardsey were able to apply further pressure on Bramham’s goal, Bramham were unlucky with how they conceded goals number two and three, as both took heavy deflections off defenders. Despite losing, the boys felt all three goals were rectifiable and that gave them confidence for when they play Bardsey again in a couple of weeks.
Y5/6 Girls’ Football match at home vs St Theresa’s (18/10/19) – Drew 3-3
18 October 2019
The girls had a thrilling match this week as they hosted St Theresa’s in the league. Both teams took the lead at different points in the game, and both teams were able to recover and get back into the game. With lots of great attacking play, and equally good defending and resilience on show, this was a contender for the game of the season! A draw was probably a fair result as it would have been tough to take for either team to lose this game.
Y5 Regional Dodgeball Tournament (17/10/19)
17 October 2019
We took our Y5 Dodgeball team to the Leeds Regional competition this week and they competed brilliantly, able to beat some of the other schools who were competing and narrowly losing their other games. They were also able to work well as a team and communicate with each other in very intense games!
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.
