Y5/6 Girls Football City Finals (25/5/18)
25 May 2018
Last night the girls’ football team competed in the Leeds City Football Finals at Priesthorpe High School. We played Holy Family Primary in the semi-final. Even though they beat us 7-0 earleir in the season, the team have progressed since then and looked really solid and confident against a really strong team. Even though we lost, it was only to a 1-0 scoreline, which shows just how far the team have come! We then played in the 3rd place play-off against St Paul’s Primary. St Paul’s were able to take the lead early on, but Connie managed to equalise before half time! Despite falling behind again, the girls were able to equalise towards the end with a great strike from Paige from around the half way line; a contender for goal of the season! Further committed defending from all the team saw the game through to extra time. Although the girls lost in extra time 3-2, they should be so proud of all their efforts throughout the year! To finish 4th in the city is a phenomenal achievement, and they’ve inspired girls throughout the school to take up football and be just like them!
Y5/6 Netball at home vs Bardsey (24/5/18) Won 5-4
24 May 2018
For the first time since getting our new court marked out, the Netball team hosted a league match. We played Bardsey and were able to get off to a positive start, taking the lead in the first quarter. Bardsey were able to fight back and were leading going into the final quarter of the game. Despite trailing, the team stayed together and managed to pull out the win with two late points from Jacob! The whole team showed great passing and moving, with brilliant rebounding to limit the opposition’s chances, well done everyone! It means we've won 3 out of our 4 games this season!
Y5/6 Cricket Tournament at Wetherby CC (21/5/18) Plate Winners
21 May 2018
For the first time, we took a Cricket team to a tournament at Wetherby Cricket Club this week. Even though we weren't that experienced, only doing some work during P.E. lessons. We didn't let that deter us and had some great moments; even though we didn't qualify from our group, we then went onto play in the Plate competition and beat three other teams in order to win it! What a fantastic result!
Y5/6 Netball away at Deighton Gates (4/5/18) Lost 6-3
4 May 2018
As the team looked to get lots of matches in, we travelled to Deighton Gates for the second match in two days! Although the game was close, it was the opposition who made their chances count, especially in the third quarter where they scored 4 of their points. Still, we shouldn't be too disappointed as we played just as well as previous games and are in a good position in the league.
Y5/6 Netball away at Highfield (3/5/18) Won 6-0
3 May 2018
In their second league game of the season the Netball team travelled to Highfield as the looked to build upon their excellent start. They continued from where they'd left off to take the lead early on and take it from there, eventually winning 6-0! There was some excellent rebounding and defending, as well as great passing and moving, which we'd been working especially hard at in training, well done team!
Y5/6 Girls Football away at Shadwell (2/5/18) Drew 1-1 & Lost 3-1
2 May 2018
In the final league matches of the season we travelled to Shadwell for a double header of fixtures as we made that last push for the City Finals. We got a great result in the first game, despite going down, we equalised with a goal from Issy from a corner. The second game was highlighted with a great run and finish from Lucy! Even though we lost the second game, we did enough to finish in the top four of the league in the whole of Leeds and qualify for the City Finals! What a fantastic achievement!
Y5/6 Boys Football at home vs Bardsey (25/4/18) Lost 5-2
25 April 2018
In the last match of the season the boys team played Bardsey. Although we didn't get the win, it was close right up till the end, where we were only caught out because we pushed forward for the win ourselves. Still, the boys should be so proud of how far they've come as a team this season; they've persevered when it's been difficult and worked well together, and that's what really counts! Well done boys, we're really proud of you!

29 March 2018
In the final game before Easter the girls team hosted Immaculate Heart. Everyone played brilliantly, with lots of players getting involved in the goals and contributing defensively. It was a great way to end the term and the team will look to make that final push for the City Finals in a few weeks.
Y5/6 Tag Rugby Regionals at Wetherby High School (28/3/18)
28 March 2018
This week we took 4 teams (all children in Years 5 & 6!) to Wetherby High School for the Tag Rugby Regionals. It was great to see so many children representing school in a fantastic manner; not only that but each team also got positive results and showed great teamwork, with one team getting to the quarter finals, and the other making it to the semi final, unfortunately just missing out on qualifying for the Leeds City Finals. Still, we are very proud of all our teams for how well we did!
