We have been very fortunate to have been provided with a new football kit! The Year 5/6 girls and Year 3/4 have been wearing these wonderful new kits to compete in league games and they certainly look the part! Thank you to those who helped to arrange and sort the kits out for the children, they are fantastic!
This academic year we have a Year 5 and 6 girl’s football team, Year 5 and 6 boy’s football team and a Year 3/4 football team.
Miss Mac is the Year 3/4 girls football coach- training Wednesday afterschool.
Miss Collier is the Year 5/6 girls football coach- training Wednesday afterschool.
Mr Delafield and Mr Hilton-Green (parent volunteers) are the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 boys football coaches- training Monday afterschool.
Year 5/6 and Year 3/4 Girl’s Football Teams
On Wednesday 6th November, we were visited by a very inspiring individual to work alongside our Year 4 and 5 pupils in a sponsored circuit to raise money for sports equipment. This visitor was Olympic swimmer James Kirkton! The children all gave the circuit their best efforts and worked so hard alongside the athlete. The whole school was alive with support and cheering! After our circuit (and a drink!), James spoke to the children about his career journey and it was inspiring to hear how hard he worked and to hear that anyone can achieve what they want as long as they put their mind too it. Thanks so much to our visitors for coming and working with us and well done to everyone that took part!
5 a-side football tournament at Football World
On Friday 26th October, the Year 5 boys football team took part in a 5 a side tournament with other primary schools. The boys were absolutely fantastic! They had fantastic sportsmanship, teamwork and skill which took them straight through to the finals. Unfortunately we just missed out on that winning spot but the boys should still be so proud of themselves and they were winners in our eyes!
On Friday 8th November it was the turn of the Year 4s to show other schools what St Joseph’s could do! The boys, just like the Year 5s displayed some fantastic football and a huge amount of passion. The boys played well as a team which took them into the final too! In the final, the boys had a rocky start due to nerves but soon got their heads in the game to secure us a 7-2 win! Fantastic boys, well done!
On Friday 15th November it was the turn of the Year 3 football team. The boys were so excited to be taking part in a tournament and they certainly didn’t disappoint with a staggering 32 goals scored in the whole tournament and only 1 goal conceded! The boys were truly fantastic and deserved to be the winners of their tournament, great job boys!
Aldi Kit for Schools Competition
We have been working really hard to collect the stickers for the Aldi Kit for Schools Competition! With each finished sticker chart, we are put into a prize draw with the opportunity to win £20,000 for the school to improve our sports equipment! The school community have been absolutely amazing with this and we managed to complete 5 in total! Keep your fingers crossed for a win and thank you for your continued support!
We have been so lucky in school! After applying for some new sports kit to Premier League Stars, we have been successful and have got plenty of new resources to enhance our PE teaching and coaching sessions. Some of this includes: cones, mini goals, footballs, bibs and beanbags. Some of the children helped Miss Mac to have a look at what came when it arrived and we were all very excited. Thank you very much to Premier League Stars, we will definitely be putting it to good use!
