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!
Y5/6 Netball League Finals at Cookridge (17/6/19)
17 June 2019
Having qualified through the East Leeds League for the first time, Bramham therefore made it to the League Finals Day; a competition where all the best league teams play off against each other. In a very difficult tournament, which included teams that were going onto compete in the West Yorkshire Finals, the team fought valiantly, narrowly losing. Despite the result the team was rightly pleased with what they had done to get to this stage and can look back on the season with pride!
Y5/6 Netball Regional Finals at Corpus Christi (6/6/19) – 3rd Place!
6 June 2019
After qualifying from their competition to get here, the Netball team competed at the Regional Finals this week, with only the winners having the opportunity to go through to the City Finals. The team played brilliantly all the way through the group stages and were also able to make it to the semi-final. Despite playing well in their semi-final, they were ultimately unable to overcome Deighton Gates, who won in the end; meaning Bramham unfortunately didn’t qualify for the City Finals. Although we just missed out, you can’t take away from the brilliant Netball, or the great attitude shown by the team; they should be really proud of themselves!
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!
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 Girls Football team 2017-18
17 July 2018
Our team managed to win some games in the tournament, and we were unlucky not to qualify for the next round. In the league we’d been playing well all season, and toughed it out in the wind, rain and mud for most of the year! All our hard work paid off as we finished in the top four of the whole city and therefore qualified for finals day. At the city finals we played a school called Holy Family in the semi; they’d won 24 league games and scored 178 goals this season. We worked really hard and we just lost 1-0. In the third place playoff we played St Paul’s who had only conceded 2 goals in 19 games all season. We didn’t let that stop us and scored two passed them in one game, including a great goal from the half way line by Paige! The game finished 2-2 and went to extra time. Unfortunately we conceded a deflected goal off the post to lose the game, but we never game up and will always be known as the fourth best team in the whole of Leeds, which we think is pretty amazing!
Gold School Games Mark 2017-18
17 July 2018
We’ve also been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for all the sport and physical activity we’ve done as a school. This award isn’t for how well do in competitions, although we’ve had a great year, it’s for how much we do and how many children we get involved in sport, so well done for everyone who has participated in school activity this year!
Y5/6 Cricket team 2017-18
16 July 2018
This year our Cricket team competed in the regional tournament at Wetherby Cricket Club. We hadn’t practised much, only in P.E., but we only narrowly missed out on qualifying from our group and went into the secondary competition. From there we continued to play well and managed to win our next group, winning the Plate tournament! It was a great achievement for our team.
Y5/6 Tag Rugby team 2017-18
16 July 2018
Our team did brilliantly and managed to win our group games, and the quarter final. Although we just lost in the semi-final and missed out on qualifying for the city finals, we took it on the chin and were proud of how far we’d come. We still finished third in the area and we played some excellent Rugby. We even won games 5-1, 5-0, 8-0 and 4-0!
Y5/6 Girls Tag Rugby team 2017-18
16 July 2018
Our team managed to win some games at the tournament. Unfortunately, only the top team from each group qualified for city finals so we just missed out. That shouldn’t take away from what was a great performance by everyone and we were proud to have played as well as we did!
Y5/6 Cross Country team 2017-18
16 July 2018
We took a team of boys and a team of girls from each class in Y5 & Y6 to the Cross County competition, it ended up being a fun, muddy day and everyone ran brilliantly; we’d only done a bit of practising in P.E. and lunchtimes and for a lot of us it was our first time running competitively. Alfie even managed to qualify for the city finals, which was a brilliant achievement!
Y5/6 Netball team 2017-18
16 July 2018
Our Netball team has had a great season! In the league we won most of our games, finishing in 5th place out of all the teams in the East of Leeds. In the tournament we managed to make it all the way to the semi-finals, and finished 3rd out of around 50 teams in the area! To say we have only just started to be able to shoot on our own Netball court makes this even more impressive, and we owe it all to our ability to pass and move the ball, teamwork and determination.
Y5/6 Boys Football 2017-18
16 July 2018
This year we looked to build on what we had done with the football team last season. We all feel like we’ve been getting better all year, and this resulted in beating Bardsey in the league in a great game. It’s been a steep learning curve, but also great fun and we definitely think we’re better as a team now then we were at the start of the year. We actually only ended up two points away from second place in the league!
