Y5/6 Boys’ Football 1st team match at home vs St Theresa’s (25/4/19) - Won 2-0
25 April 2019
The boys played their final league game of the season as they hosted St Theresa’s. With every game they play from now on being a difficult one, this was the perfect way to end the league, as St Theresa’s have always been difficult opponents. In their second close game of the season, Shadwell were just able to edge it; both teams had chances, and just like their previous game the match swung on a couple of key moments; with both goals being scored in the first four minutes.
Y4 Girls’ Football match at home vs Bramham (24/4/19) – Won 1-0
24 April 2019
Having played a few mixed football matches this season, as part of broadening their experience we played a girls only match, further preparing the children for the type of football they’ll be playing next season. A great goal early on ended up sealing the result, but credit to Bramham, who were also playing their first girls’ game as they also worked hard and even hit the post on a couple of occasions!

16 April 2019
The Year 4 football team continued their run of fixtures as the hosted Meanwood this week. As had been the trend this year, half the class were playing, with the other half having played their game previously. The children played a great game, narrowly losing to a team which played together regularly. They showed all the characteristics you would want and, as young players, will only get better as they receive more experience!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team away at Highfield (29/3/19) – Won 2-0
29 March 2019
To finish off what has been a phenomenal half term of sport the girls’ football 1st team travelled to 3rd place Highfield. After such a lot of sport in the last few weeks it was no wonder the girls got off to a fairly slow start by their standards; Alina was required to make a couple of great saves early on. As the half progressed the girls grew into the game, eventually making the breakthrough when Isla tapped in Megan’s cross to make it 1-0. The team battled hard for every challenge throughout the 2nd half showing great determination, and after some great work from Lucy down the left, Sukhmann powered in a shot passed the keeper. The final score remained 2-0 and the girls should be proud of using any energy they had left to get a great win!
Y5/6 Netball at home vs Carr Manor (28/3/19) – Won 10-1
28 March 2019
A great performance from the team in their second match this week, especially as there was some squad rotation in an attempt to give everyone some game time. Shadwell were even 1-0 down after the first quarter, but some excellent attacking play from Abigail and Emelia in the 2nd got the ball rolling and the team never looked back to make it two wins out of two!
Y5/6 Boys Football 1st team at home vs Grimes Dyke (27/3/19) – Cup quarter final – Won 2-0
27 March 2019
As the half term drew to a close, the boys hosted Grimes Dyke as both teams tried to book a place in the Leeds Cup semi final. After a close game earlier in the season, this game followed suit as the ball was mainly held in the middle of the pitch. Indeed, the score at halftime remained locked at 0-0. The second half was just as close but Shadwell were able to take the lead when Gabriel was able to capitalise on a defensive ricochet to fire home. As the game drew to a close, Gabriel was once again able to score to extend Shadwell’s lead. A great victory in a close game meant Shadwell progress to the semi-finals; a brilliant achievement!
Y5/6 Tag Rugby at Allerton High School – Winners! (26/3/19)
26 March 2019
As a busy week of sport got underway, we took 6 teams to Tag Rugby regionals this week; a record number of teams for any school! It was a brilliant day and everyone played to their best and represented the school brilliantly! We even managed to get a team through to the Leeds City Finals in May, which is a great achievement in itself, but to have so many children playing sport and enjoying themselves is another fantastic achievement!
Y5/6 Netball away at Deighton Gates (25/3/19) – Won 7-4
25 March 2019
The squad got their league season underway as they travelled to Deighton Gates on Monday. Always a good team, Deighton provided a tough match up with the scores remaining close throughout the first half. We were able to put together some great passing and moving in the third quarter which gave us a lead to hold onto in the fourth, eventually winning 7-4 – a great start to the season!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at the North of England Finals! (21/3/19)
21 March 2019
In what was their biggest achievement to date, the girls’ football team travelled all the way down to Sheffield to represent the school, the city, and the county at the North of England Football Finals! With 11 teams competing, each a winner of their own county competition, the standard was always going to be high. Never ones to shrink from a challenge, the girls took it head on and gave everyone they played a tough game, getting some great wins and were genuinely unlucky in other games. The team that eventually won, from Durham, won all their games, except for the one when they played us – a 1-1 draw, which should show how competitive we were. The girls are a fantastic team full of great players and fully deserved to be a part of such a special occasion!
Y5/6 Boys’ Football 1st team away at Swarcliffe (20/3/19) – Won 12-1
20 March 2019
The boys continued their league campaign today as they travelled to Swarcliffe. With the end of the season drawing near, the boys are preparing themselves for tough games in the upcoming weeks. They got off to a great start today, and were able to apply pressure early on eventually leading 5-0 at half time. Despite conceding early on in the second half, the game really opened up from that point on and the boys were able to extend their lead, winning 12-1.
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at home vs St Paul’s (18/3/19) – Won 4-0

As the girls continued their preparation for the North of England Finals later this week, they hosted St Paul’s in the league. After a close start the team were able to pull away in the second half, creating some good passing and moving as well as finishing their chances; eventually resulting in a 4-0 win!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at home vs Horsforth Newlaithes (15/3/19) – Won 2-1
15 March 2019
Preparation has begun for the girls’ big North of England tournament next week as they played some tough games leading up to it, starting with Horsforth. There’s usually a breeze on our home field, but today’s game was something else, with a really strong wind affecting how both teams would like to play. Sukhmann was able to give Shadwell the lead in the first half, but Horsforth equalised in the second. With time running down an incredible shot from Hetty, from the half way line, found the back of the net to give Shadwell the win! A brilliant end to a hard-fought game!
