We have had so many sporting events this term; we have tried to include the results of most!
All year groups have participated in their annual ‘Sports Day’ which have been enjoyed by all. All of the children participated in a number of events and enjoyed competing against each other. A huge thank you to the older children who helped at Reception and Key Stage 1 events. The older children have also participated in our annual 10 Step award, this consists of 12 events to gain personal best scores that they try to improve on, year on year.
The Women’s World Cup
We have all been watching the Women’s World Cup with hope! The England team played really well and this has encouraged our girls to play football.
Dance and Gymnastics
Our KS2 children have worked so hard with our PE partner dance coach to produce some excellent dance and gymnastic routines.
The Jane Tomlinson Run
Wow! 49 marathons completed and we ran from Leeds to Rome raising lots of money. It was a definite highlight of the year.
We took part in a Rugby tournament and day at Morley Rugby Club. Mr Wilkinson was very impressed and could see them developing as a team as the day progressed. We also played in the city wide tag rugby tournament but did not manage to progress through to the finals.
Our year 4 children played very well and pulled together as a team.
Under 9’s Football Tournament
The team worked very hard and showed huge potential – it was their first outing as a team. They played brilliantly and had a mixed set of results.
Under 11’s Football Tournament
Our team played the best football but some how did not manage to find the back of the net. They showed grit and determination throughout. We got knocked out at the group stages.
Year 3 Aspire Athletics
Year 3 children participated in their first competition in Key Stage 2. They tried very hard and encouraged each other throughout the competition. They came third overall – well done a great team effort!
We progressed through to the city finals but were beaten by the eventual winners!
Our Year 6 children played in a rounders tournament. We improved as the games progressed and won our very last game!
High Five and Netball
We have played 2 matches, in the high five tournament we came second in the South Leeds heats. In netball, we played at Morley Academy and managed to come overall third in our group.
PE Partner after school clubs
Mr Rhodes and the PE Partner team are very busy every night delivering exciting clubs to all year groups within school. We have also started to have PE Partner run their holiday club at Morley Victoria which you can book on their website! The children learn new skills that they can apply within PE lessons. They get the opportunity to take part in games with different age groups in school.
Mrs Bode and Mrs Hughes have worked really hard with the Year 5 and 6 netball club this year. They have improved their skills and their ability to work together as a team. They will finish the year by playing the teachers at their request!
The Elstub Cup
We welcomed back our very own Mr Elstub to referee our annual Elstub Cup match. Both Year 6 classes played one another and it was a great game enjoyed by all.
This is always a quiet term in the sporting calendar but we have so many events planned for the Summer term.
We took part in our cluster dodgeball competition. We took two teams of Year 6 children – they played really well, we had close matches but in the end we won which was an excellent result!
The Football Season
It has been quiet this term with few fixtures. We still have a few games to play before the season comes to an end. We are currently mid table and looking forward to moving up!
Our Year 5 children are due to take part in an ASPIRE Basketball competition, they did very well reaching the final!
It has been lovely to see how much dance is going on both in school and after school. In Year 3’s class assemblies we were treated to a performance of highland dancing!
We are working with the PE coach to develop our gymnastic skills this term and into next. It is really helping to develop strength and flexibility.
Year 4 Rugby
We took part in the annual rugby tournament at Morley Rugby club. We played a mixed team of 10. We played well and enjoyed the day but did not reach the final.
We have had a mixed set of results so far this season. We have been working on positioning and shooting. Mr Dougal and the team are looking forward to the season restarting in the new year.
Our team took part in the annual tournament – we had some successes in certain events but did not quite score enough points to get through to the next round.
Year 2 ASPIRE Football
The team played well in their first competitive match and made the final! Unfortunately, we lost in the final – Mr Rhodes and Miss Young were very proud of their efforts and teamwork.
Year 5 Leeds Dodgeball Cup
Our Year 5 children participated in this event and won! They will now go through to the final stages which will take place in the summer term – well done!
