Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team West Yorkshire Qualifiers (13/1/20)
13 January 2020
On Monday our girls’ football 1st team travelled to Football World for the West Yorkshire Qualifiers. The team did really well to adapt to a style of football they weren’t used to, with the ball never going off the pitch and bouncing off the walls. Although we were able to win some games, we also came up against some very strong opposition and with only one team being able to qualify we just missed out. Still, it was a great learning opportunity for the team!
Y5 Football match at home vs Grimes Dyke (13/1/20) – Lost 5-1
13 January 2020
The Y5 squad played their first match this week as they hosted Grimes Dyke in the league. With the whole Y5 class wanting to play we split them in half, with some of them playing today and the rest playing next week. In tricky conditions they were able to give their very best, bringing the score back to 1-1 from a losing position. Eventually Grimes Dyke were able to pull away and claim the victory, but it wasn’t because of lack of effort from our Y5s; everyone played their part in a great team performance!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at home vs Farsley Farfield (3/12/19) – Drew 1-1
3 December 2019
In their final league game before Christmas the girls put in another good performance against a strong Farlsley Farfield team and were able to take the lead when Amaya’s great through ball set up Lily for the finish. Although Farlsey had their chances, it was only right in the last minute when they were able to equalise. A disappointing way to finish the game from a Shadwell perspective, but also a great learning experience for the girls and something which they will be able to grow from in the future.
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team away at St Patrick’s (28/11/19) – Won 3-0
28 November 2019
Both Shadwell girls’ football teams had games this week, with the 1st team travelling to St Patrick’s for a league game. St Patrick’s, who were second in the Leeds League, were bound to be difficult opposition, and so it proved as it was difficult for the girls to break them down. The breakthrough was made when Rakhi scored two great goals to give us a 2-0 lead going into halftime. Despite leading, the girls had to defend well and Grace in goal made a number of brilliant saves! The second half was also close, with the third and final goal only being added towards the end, when Rakhi’s run and cross down the right was finished first-time by Amber! A great win for the girls, who keep their place at the top of the Leeds League, and they’ll need another good performance if they hope to beat Farsley Farfield in their final league game of the year next Tuesday.
Y5/6 Boys’ Football 1st team away at St Patrick’s (28/11/19) – Won 4-0
28 November 2019
The boys also travelled to St Patrick’s on Thursday, but theirs’ was a cup game. Just like the girls, they were able to get a great win, with the game finishing 4-0. The boys are therefore through to the next round, and wait to see who they will play. It was brilliant to have both the boys’ and the girls’ teams playing on pitches right next to each other, and both playing so well!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 2nd team at home vs Bramham (27/11/19) – Lost 3-1
27 November 2019
This week it was the turn of the girls’ football 2nd team to play, at home vs Bramham in a friendly game. Despite losing, there were lots of positives to take from the game, and we also scored a great goal! It was a really useful learning experience for the team, who are desperate to play further fixtures after Christmas!
Y5/6 Boys Football 2nd team game at home vs IHOM (21/11/19) – Won 2-1
21 November 2019
Goals from Oliver and Felix sealed a brilliant comeback victory for the boys’ 2nd team this week! They’re really starting to come together as a unit and it definitely showed as they displayed a lot of determination and teamwork again and were able to make their chances count!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at home vs Primrose Lane (19/11/19) – Won 5-0
19 November 2019
The girls put in another fine display, this time against Primrose Lane as they were able to get a brilliant win to keep them at the top of the Leeds League. They were able to show lots of excellent attacking play to break down a determined opposition defence. The challenge will be to play this well again in their next game which is against second in the league St Patrick’s!
Y6 Sportshall Athletics (13/11/19)
13 November 2019
This week we were able to take the whole of Class 6 to the Regional Sportshall Athletics competition! It was a great day with lots of exciting races and events; although we were unable to qualify for the next round, we had a lot of fun and were able to share the experience as one big team!
Y5/6 Boys’ Football 1st team at home vs St Paul’s (11/11/19) – Lost 1-0
11 November 2019
For the second time this season, the boys played St Paul’s in the league, this time in the return fixture at home. The boys were able to match their opposition for the most part, though St Paul’s were able to grab a goal in the first half. Although the team created some good chances, we were unfortunate not to finish, resulting in a narrow 1-0 loss. It looks to be an tough battle to win the league this year, but this group of boys are determined and will keep going right till the end of the season!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at home vs Bramham (2 games) (8/11/19) – Won 1-0 & 3-1
8 November 2019
As they played Bramham for both league games this week, the girls had even more points up for grabs than usual; a situation they took advantage of; narrowly winning the first game with a goal near the end, and then also winning the second match. In very cold conditions both sets of girls played brilliantly and had a great time despite the weather!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team away at Alwoodley (5/11/19) – Won 3-0
5 November 2019
The girls were able to continue their excellent play this week when they travelled to Alwoodley. The team were extremely focused and showed huge amounts of desire to get the win, which keeps them near the top of the Leeds League!
