Sporting Achievements

Congratulations to our Boy's Football Team who competed in the South Yorkshire Finals, on Thursday. Competing in a group of 8 schools, they played against the region's best teams, amassing 13 points, and finishing in 3rd place overall. They played excellent football throughout and were unlucky to be denied by the woodwork, on several occasions, which denied them the elusive goals needed to top the group. To the finish as the 3rd best school in South Yorkshire is a fantastic achievement though and we are proud of all the boys! Well done and we look forward to our forthcoming League fixtures with our new Sports Coach, Mr Woodhall.

Term 1 Football Round Up

This term we entered a total of 8 teams into the Barnsley Schools competitions.

All Y5/6 boys who expressed an interest in playing inter-school competitive football were given the opportunity to do so and, as a result, we entered 4 separate teams into 3 different qualifying events.

Team A and Team C won their events and Team B finished runners up, meaning that they all went through to the Barnsley Finals. Team D just missed out, but only just.

At the Barnsley Finals, Team A went on to win the competition and now go through to represent Barnsley at the Keepmoat Stadium on 11 January, 2018. Team B also won their group and made it to the quarter finals.

 

Our Y5/6 girls' team also qualified for the Barnsley Finals' Day where they narrowly missed out on making it through to the semis.

 

In Lower Key Stage 2, we entered two  separate Y3/4 boys teams, where Team A successfully made it through to the semi finals and won the Bronze Award, finishing in third place. Likewise, our Y3/4 Girls Team also achieved the Bronze Award, finishing third, after 3 wins and 2 defeats. This was a remarkable achievement seeing as it was their first ever experience of playing in a football team.

 

So, overall, it's been a very successful term, where lots of children have taken up the opportunity to compete as part of a team and had a fantastic experience in doing so. We've got more to look forward to in the Spring Term, including:

  • Y4/5 Girls' and Boys' Futsal
  • 2 Teams entered for the Schools' Football League (9 a side) 

Champions!
