Y5/6 Leeds City Hockey Finals (13/3/20) – 3rd Place!
13 March 2020
This Friday we took a team from both Bramham and Shadwell to the Leeds City Hockey Finals. Our team did really well, winning all but one of their games in the group. From there we qualified for the semi-finals. In that game we played some brilliant Hockey, but we were unfortunate to concede a goal in the last minute to lose 1-0. The children showed a lot of resilience to pick themselves up for the 3rd place play off. In that game we were able to win 4-0, against a team who had beaten us 5-2 in the group stage! Considering none of our players had ever played a competitive Hockey game before, they did incredibly well and improved so much throughout the tournament! What a great day!

In the second half the game opened up more and the team were able to capitalise, not only scoring great team goals, but brilliant individual goals also!

This week we were able to take 6 teams (all of Y5 & 6!) to the Leeds Tag Rugby Regional Finals at Garforth Academy. It was a truly brilliant day, with all teams and children playing to their absolute best! Of the 16 teams there, 5 of the 8 quarter finalists were our teams, which meant 5 of our 6 teams had finished in the top 2 of their groups! From there, 3 of the 4 semi-finalists were Shadwell teams, which is an amazing achievement. One team even won the tournament and qualified for the Leeds City Finals in May!

Y5/6 Girls’ Football away at Holy Family (25/2/20) – Drew 4-4
25 February 2020
The girls played the return leg of their league fixtures against Holy Family on Tuesday. The opposition pitch always provides a great experience for our teams as it’s on astro turf within walls so the ball never goes out of play! The team adapted well and were able to score some great goals whilst also coping on the defensive side. It was a really end-to-end game and the draw was definitely a fair result in a match which could have gone either way.

We took all the boys from Y4 who wanted to play over to St Patrick’s Primary for two games this evening. With so many boys wanting to compete we were able to split them into two different teams for each game. Both teams played so well and were able to get great results in each game they played! Not only that, but every single player represented school brilliantly and certainly showed they are able to compete in sporting events for school again in the future!

Y5/6 Netball at home vs Highfield (4/2/20) – Won 6-3
4 February 2020
In our first game of the season the squad got off to a flying start against Highfield. For almost all of the players it was the first time they had actually played in a competitive Netball match. Not only did they have to put what they had learned into practise, but also cope with a frantic match against good opposition. Despite all of this, they team played very well, and were able to string some good passing moves together, and finish the chances they created to get a brilliant win to start the season!
