In our first game we were unfortunate to lose 2 - 0 against Walkwood, who went on to win the entire competition. Next we were beaten 3 - 0 by Swanland, 4 - 0 by St James and 3 - 0 by Codsall. Our final game was the closest of the day as we lost 1 - 0 against Sacred Heart.
Although results did not go our way nobody gave up and we showed great determination throughout. With six of the team being able to play in next year's competition it is hoped we can learn  from the experience and come back stronger next season.

Codsall and Walkwood from group A, together with West Bridgford and Whitchurch from group B went through to the semi-finals.
West Bridgford defeated Codsall on penalties whilst Walkwood beat Whitchurch.
In the final it was  Walkwood 1 West Bridgford 1 at the end of normal time, with Walkwood winning the penalty shootout.

Justine Lucas Visit

On Tuesday 24th April we were fortunate to be visited by England Rugby international Justine Lucas.
During the morning she worked with Y5 pupils before talking to all the KS2 pupils during service.
In the afternoon it was the turn of Y6 before Y3 and 4 pupils had the chance to attend an after school session.

The sporting events that I’ve been to:
Cross country x2, football, athletics, rowing, indoor football, swimming, SAQ , netball talent day, dance x2, netball, football PLP, QuickSticks, Multiskills talent day.

My favourite sporting event:
 My favourite sporting event was either Football, dancing or cross country, I like doing sporting events because I like doing different sports. If I haven’t done a sport before and been picked for it I like to try a new sport like this year I did SAQ and I wasn’t too sure what to do but I did it.

Why I like doing sports:
I like doing sports because I have fun playing them and I enjoy going against other schools because in some sports you have to work with other schools with people you don’t know.

The whole aim in sports competitions:
The whole aim in sports competitions is to have fun and take part and sometimes it’s about winning all the sporting events are really fun.
