Competitions 2022 26023
We entered the Culley Sevens Leeds Schools' Rugby League tournament on Thursday 29th June . The tournament was for year 6 and year 5 children. We were made up of just year 5 boys and girls. All the other teams were year 6. We lost all three games but the children were commended by the organisers for their behaviour and never say die attitude. Mr Pattison and Mrs Westerman who went were really proud of the children. The team was made up of Yared , Aron , Jayden, Itoby, Malakai, Samrawi, Nancy , Emanuel and Merih .
St Bartholomew's Trophy
As always we entered the biggest all girls tournament in Leeds - over 50 teams this year! It was a boiling hot day and the girls were very unlucky, after winning 6-0 and 4-0 in the group stages, not to progress to the knock out stages.
Leeds Africa Cup of Nations
The school team went to Shakespeare Primary to contest this popular annual event. The team played better and better as the afternoon progressed and won the 3rd/4th place play off with a last gasp goal from Arshaq.
Longer Distance Running Challenge
The week after the iconic Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon, the children had their turn at running a longer distance in our latest whole school sporting challenge. In the spirit of the marathon, we stressed the the distance itself being a great achievement for everybody. Every race has winners, so each class had their champion boy and champion girl.
Whole School Dance Off!
As we broke up for February half term, we had our third whole school dance competition. Every class had spent the half term practising, then we came together on the last Friday to perform to each other. Every adult in the hall was allowed to vote for their favourite. They all said it was nearly impossible to choose because the standard was so high! The winners were the mighty Year 3!
Second World Cup tournament!
On November 30th a mixed team represented us at another football fantastic tournament inspired by the World Cup. Year 6 were away in London, so it was entirely Year 5s who made up the squad. They played 7 ten minute games and then a quarter final. That's a lot of football! What an afternoon! The team tended to be on the end of narrow defeats, but it was a high standard of football and they competed extremely well. Sara and Mr Adamson were very proud of them. It was organised by Leeds United, so a massive bonus on top of all the football was meeting the brilliant Luis Sinisterra! Also, we got to hold the World Cup!
Penalty Shoot Out!
In October we did the first whole school sporting challenge of the year from Nursery right up to Year 6. The children always love these and this one was the return of the penalty shoot- out. Every class ended up with a champion boy and champion boy who received a lovely certificate to celebrate their achievement.
World Cup Tournament!
On November 10th, we took two teams to a fantastic World Cup inspired tournament at Football World. The boys team played really well as a team, showing loads of determination and skill. However, it was the girls team that really stole the show! They won an amazing 5 games and drew the other to qualify for the final. Unfortunately, after going ahead in the final they narrowly lost 2-1. What an achievement though getting there in such style!
