Bradford U11 Girls Football Champions…again!

For the second consecutive year Hothfield  are the Bradford School Games football champions.

Free-flowing football, penalty saves, top quality goals, bruises & blood and sportsmanship aplenty, Hothfield won 3 and drew 1 of their four group stage matches to top the group. 

Undefeated in their group stage matches, Hothfield progressed to the semi- finals. Hothfield, who up to this point, had played well but not shown their best form, really turned on the style in the semi final, winning 5-0.
The final was simply a fantastic match. Hothfield raced into a 2-0 lead, and led 3-1 at the break. Heaton upped their game in the second half and clawed themselves back to parity. With seconds left, Chloe F went on a mazy run and coolly slotted home a dramatic winner. 

Group Stage:

Hothfield 3-1 Crossflatts

Hothfield 2-2 St Anthony’s

Hothfield 2-1 Fagley

Hothfield 3-1 Lidget Green

Semi Final:

Hothfield 5-0 Baildon


Hothfield 4-3 Heaton

Hooray for Hothfield!

Hothfield’s budding athletes turned out in force once again on Wednesday to represent the school at the 3rd of the KCAC Primary Schools Cross Country Challenge events at Cliffe Castle where conditions were near perfect!   A total of 28 children ran in the 4 races, which were highly competitive and  involved children from schools across the district with an amazing 119 boys running in the Year 3 / 4 boys race.   All our children showed true Hothfield grit and determination, with many battling on to finish races in their socks, having lost shoes in the deep mud on route.  Well done to them all and thank you to the wonderful support from all our parents and Mrs Meakin who checked all our children back in.   We are looking forward to the next and final race on March 15th which we are hosting at Silsden Park!

What we ‘saw’ in Year 5 this week

This term, all children in Year 5 have had the opportunity to earn some ‘Specialised Learning Time’ on a Thursday afternoon. This time gives the children the chance to try their hand at a new, creative or fun activity in order to learn new skills.
So far they have explored the art of quilling, undertaken construction tasks with lollipop sticks and art straws, before this week trying out some woodwork. For many, it was the first chance to try out their saw skills!
A few photos of their efforts this half-term are below.

A visit from Reverend Griffiths

A huge thanks to Reverend David Griffiths for visiting year 5 today. We learnt about the key events in Jesus’ life and completed a great activity which involved some magical paper folding and cutting. The children were amazed when they unfolded all the pieces!
