The Year 3/4 football team travelled to Eston to take part in the Middlesbrough Primary Schools competition. The team performed well throughout the day and enjoyed playing football in the sunny weather.
The day was split into two sections, with group games in the morning against: Beech Grove, Breckon Hill, Pallister Park, Brambles Farm, Newport and Sunnyside. The team came away with 1 win, 3 draws and 2 defeats. In the afternoon the team face: St Thomas More, Berwick Hills, St Augustines, Whinney Banks and St Gerrards. The team won 2 games, drew one and lost two games to finish third in their group.
Throughout the day the team showed great spirit and represented the school well, the stand out feature of the team was the defence which Jose Mourinho would have been proud of with 7 clean sheets in 11 games. However, the team seemed to leave their shooting boots at home as the woodwork was hit on 6 occassions throughout the day.
Well done everyone involved.
Well done to our Cross Country runners who attended the first round of the Tees Valley Cross Country competition. All of the children were excellent ambassadors for the school and braved chilly weather conditions to achieve their very best. We are very proud of all the children who took part.
Before the Christmas holidays, our Year 5 and 6 boys and girls football team attended the Middlesbrough Primary Schools U11 football competition. It was a fantastic day with a high standard of football from all the teams which attended. The competition was sponsored by Vision for Education who provide trophies and medals for the winners and runners up. In addition to this they also sponsored a new award for fair play. To be nominated for this award teams had to demonstrate; honesty, teamwork, respect, self belief, passion, determination and sportsmanship. Our teams where seen to have all these qualities and were awarded the Middlesbrough Primary Schools U11 Football Fair Play Award 2013.
On Friday 31st January Vision for Education came in to award our Year 5 and 6 boys and girls team the Fair Play award trophy and a bag of footballs.
We are extremely proud of all the children who took part in this event, you were all excellent ambassadors for our school. Congratulations!
