Y5 Dodgeball Tournament at John Smeaton Leisure Centre (29/11/18)
29 November 2018
This week, for the first time, we took a team of Y5s to the Regional Dodgeball Tournament. There were lots of great moments throughout, including some excellent catching and great throwing! We were able to win some games throughout the tournament and although we didn’t qualify the team did brilliantly and should be very proud of themselves.
Y5/6 Girls Football away at Whinmoor St Paul’s – Won 6-0 (27/11/18)
27 November 2018
The girls were hoping to build on a great win in their previous game this week as they travelled to Whinmoor. They were able to do so with great defending and energetic attacking! All the girls continued their great form and played their part in what was a very cold and wet game. The team were able to make their chances count and claim what was a brilliant win!
Y5/6 Girls Football away at Bardsey – Won 3-1 (23/11/18)
23 November 2018
The girls were on their travels once again this week as they made the short journey to Bardsey. In what was a cagey first half of few chances the team were able to take the lead before the break to go in at halftime at 1-0. The girls were playing well, but were unlucky to concede an equaliser shortly afterwards, but they were able to keep themselves together and regain the lead later in the game, eventually winning 3-1 to claim their first victory of the season!
Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Competition at John Smeaton Academy – Runners Up (19/11/18)
19 November 2018
This week we were able to take the whole of Y6, and a couple of Y5s, to the Regional Sportshall Athletics Tournament. The event consisted of multiple running, jumping and throwing events, and everyone played their part, contributing to an excellent overall team score of 314 points! The results meant we finished in joint 1st position in the competition. Unfortunately only one team could qualify, so it went down to which school had more first place finishes in the events. Again, both schools were tied with 7 each. It then went down to which school had the most 2nd place finishes, and we just missed out, 7 to 4. Although the team didn’t win, they should be very proud of how close they came, everybody who competed gave all they had to their events. The organisers actually said it was the closest competition they had run in 27 years! We still managed to qualify for a runners-up event to be held later in the year, which we look forward to!
Y5/6 Girls Football away at Highfield – Lost 3-0 (16/11/18)
16 November 2018
The girls once again travelled to Highfield for their second game in close succession. Having had a difficult game previously, the team looked a lot more solid in comparison and that showed in the result as they were only trailing 1-0 at half time. Having created chances of our own, we were unlucky not to score ourselves. Unfortunately, as they pushed for an equaliser in the second half it was Highfield who managed to extend their lead, eventually winning 3-0. Still, we looked more organised than we had done in the previous match, with more steps to take in next week’s fixtures.
Y5/6 Girls Football away vs Shadwell 2nd team (14/11/19) – Won 2-0
14 November 2018
The girls were back to winning ways this week as they travelled to Shadwell for a friendly fixture. They were able to build upon their recent good displays and this time turn their hard work into goals, as well as stopping the opposition strikers from scoring. It was a brilliant all-round display from the team!
Y5/6 Boys Football vs St Mary’s Horsforth – Lost 5-0 (13/11/18)
13 November 2018
The boys played in the first round of the Leeds cup this week against St Mary’s Horsforth. Although the game got away from us at the end, with Horsforth scoring two late goals, the team continued to show good structure for long periods and carved out a couple of opportunities of their own in the second half. Credit to goalkeeper Alfie who made numerous terrific saves! Also special mention to girls’ team members Tilly and Lilly who not only helped out the boys tonight, but were also two of the best players on the whole pitch!
Y5/6 Girls Football away at Deighton Gates – Lost 5-3 (9/11/18)
9 November 2018
The girls continued a busy week with their second game in as many days when they travelled to Deighton Gates for another difficult league fixture. Despite trailing 2-0 the team showed great resilience and perseverance to level the scores at 2-2 in the second half. Unfortunately, just as we equalised Deighton Gates were able to retake the lead and then make it 4-2. The girls were able to score again, but eventually lost 5-3 in what was a very entertaining game! The girls should be proud of how hard they worked to get back into it from losing positions throughout.
Y5/6 Girls Football away vs Highfield – Lost 5-1 (8/11/18)
8 November 2018
The girls went to Highfield this week for a league fixture. Despite playing a very good team the girls defended brilliantly and despite going two goals down in the first half, kept their heads up and managed to score a goal of their own through a great finish from Eva! As the team pushed for the equaliser in the second half they were caught out a couple of times on the break; the slippery conditions also making it tricky to defend, but there were definitely lots of positives to take from the game.
Y5/6 Boys Football away vs Shadwell 2nd team – Won 3-0 (7/11/18)
7 November 2018
The boys got their half term of fixtures underway on Wednesday as they travelled to Shadwell. Playing on a slippery pitch in the rain could have caused some issues, but the team have been working very hard to improve so far this season and their hard work was evident as they were able to take the lead, albeit with a deflected shot in the first half. The boys’ energy was clear to see as they kept up the pressure in the second half and were able to add two more goals. Not only that, but they were able to not concede on the defensive end, which was a great achievement for the team as a whole!
5/6 Girls Football away at Meanwood – Lost 6-0 (6/11/18)
6 November 2018
The girls got their half term underway today as they played Meanwood in the league. Although Meanwood deserved their win, the game was closer than the score line suggests, and everyone took responsibility for their jobs on the pitch. Despite the result, there were still lots of positives to build on for future games this week!
