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)
Cross Country Finals 8.11.17
A huge well done to all the children from years 3 to 6 that earned a place at the Cross Country Individual Finals, by finishing in the top 10. It's a tough event, against the best children from Barnsley. Congratulations to Leo Cosgrove, whose 6th place has earned him a place at the Yorkshire finals, and Emily Bowen, who just missed out in 11th place. Remember you can all join us at Run a Mile, every Tuesday at Friday at 8.30. Get in training and next year, it could
