The Autumn term saw some fantastic competitions! Our first whole school competition was a skipping challenge - how many could each child do in 30 seconds? As usual we had two champions from each class, from Nursery through to Year 6. Our second challenge was a penalty shoot out. Our staff v pupils shoot out to start it off ended in a draw! This photo shows all the Year 3 children who made it through into the second round of their shoot out.
On top of this, 18 of our older children represented the school in the annual indoor athletics tournament. As usual they did the school proud, but, facing some very strong opposition were unable to progress into the next round.
The football team has had a great start to the year, notably in the Leeds United Road to Wembley tournament. In their group they won an amazing 5 out of 6 games to qualify for the semi- final. The skill and determination on show were great to see and some of the goals were fantastic. Unfortunately, they lost a very close semi-final 1-0 to St Augustine's. A huge well done to Amira, Angie, Kwame, Quincy, Timmy, Osahon and the two Yuels! Here is a photo of them at the end.
The Year 5 and Year 4 Rugby team played on Monday 11th March in the Burton Trophy. They were playing against Roundhay and did brilliantly winning 28 -16. Osahon scored 6 tries and there was some great tackling from Thomas, Joel and Ryan. The whole team were a credit to the school and played amazingly well.
Football Match v Austhorpe
On the same day the school football team played against Austhorpe Primary. We won 4-0, but it was a much closer game than the score suggests. There was a high level of skill and commitment from both teams. Kaiden scored an amazing volley, but it was Quincy who was named man of the match.
In Spring One we had an amazing class dance competition. Every child took part in their class dance and the school hall was bouncing with excitement. All the adults had a vote ( not for their own class though!) and Year 5 were crowned dance champions!
The Spring Two challenge was individual sprinting, inspired by Usain Bolt! Here are some of the children taking part and the Y3 class champions Westley and Jael. Well done!
Year 3 Dodgeball Tournament
On March 18th Mrs Lancaster took 6 boys to a dodgeball tournament in Rothwell organised by Ace Club. The lads did brilliantly and Mrs Lancaster was delighted with both their skills and their sporting attitude. A big well done to Kavan, Riley, Ephraim, David, Nahom and Westley.
