Orienteering!

Four children from year five visited Tong Leadership Academy yesterday to take part in an orienteering race. Working in pairs, they had to navigate their way to a specific point on a map and then return to the start to pass the baton on to the other pair. The children were competing against 11 other schools, who were mainly made up of year six children, from Bradford and Leeds. At the end of the competition, the top four teams would progress to a final round at Leeds Beckett Park. Unfortunately, the team just missed out on the top four but did extremely well to finish fifth!

Playtime Equipment!

Bradford Bulls brought us some new playtime equipment into school today. This was gratefully received by year five. They hope you all enjoy playing with the equipment and look after it!

Fencing!

Key Stage Two were treated to an hour of fencing on Wednesday. Here are some photos from year five’s session.

Who would be interested in a fencing after school club?!

Year 6 Premier Sports Taster Session

Today the children took part in a taster session run by Premier Sports. They really enjoyed playing and learning new skills. They tried out archery and a target game.

They counted their points and used their maths skills too.

Kick-boxing

As part of our Future Learning Partnership, four children from year two had a go at some kick-boxing today. They went up to BBEC and did lots of different warm up activities, learnt lots of different kicks, and then put some of the moves that they had learnt into combinations. Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

6-0

The football team played a friendly match against Farfield on Monday night. It was an entertaining game and one which St Paul’s dominated. There was some excellent football on display, a hat-trick from Alfie, and a big winning margin of 6-0.

Sports Day Practice

Yesterday, year six went to the cricket field with year one and two. When they arrived, the children split into their families. The year six children in each family then showed the younger children what they should be doing for each activities.

Football Match

Yesterday, a selection of year six pupils walked across the road to play a friendly football match against St Winifred’s. The match was split into three sections, each one 15 minutes long, and was a closely fought contest.

Throughout the game St paul’s appeared to be the slightly stronger team – creating the better opportunities and having more attempts at goal. However, having remained 0-0 for the first two parts of the game, disaster struck in the final part of it. First, the opposition scored a goal from close range to take a 1-0 lead, before adding another sucker punch in the dying moments to go 2-0 up.

Overall, the players performed really well. We are looking to play another match in the coming weeks which hopefully will end with a better result.
