Fun in the Sun

Last week, year five made the most of the good weather and ventured up to the cricket field for their PE lesson. After a good warm up and a game of duck, duck, goose, they practised some football skills and played a few matches. They ended with a jog around the cricket field!

Tong Football League 2018

Well done to the school football team who made a fantastic start to the U11 tournament last night.

We played 5 games, here are the results:

  • St.John’s (A) 1 – St.Paul’s
  • St.Anthony’s 0 – St.Paul’s 2
  • Bradford Academy (A) 1 – St.Paul’s 0
  • St.John’s (B) 0 – St.Paul’s
  • Bradford Academy (B) 0 – St.Paul’s 4

The team really grew in confidence as the games progressed and they worked really well as a team. A special well done to Phoebe for making some great saves, our goalscorers Cameron (6) and Jacob (2) and Joe’s great communication in defence. Well done everyone!

Thank you to Mick and Mr Platt also.


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.

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.

Marley Football Festival

Yesterday, 10 children from year 6 traveled to Marley to take part in the annual football festival with around 30 other schools. This year, we were able to enter two teams. Both played really well and finished third out of six in their respective leagues. Unfortunately, it was only the top team that made it through to the knockout rounds. Here are a selection of pictures from the tournament:

























Thank you to Miss Charles and Mick for accompanying us to this tournament!

Last Thursday, the football team played round two of their matches at Tong High School. This night didn’t go as well as planned; they ended up with two defeats, two draws, a win and another win due to a team withdrawing. A big thanks to Mick for helping with transport and the management!

The players hope to bounce back strongly in the final week of the tournament which takes place on Thursday 17th November – Parents are welcome to come and support their children.

Last week, St Paul’s football team returned to Tong High School to take part in their annual football festival which is spread over three dates. They played really well and didn’t concede a goal all night. At the end of the night, they sat 4th in the table having won to games 1-0, and drawn the other games 0-0.

Year 6 Football Festival

Year 6 and James (year 5) had their chance to play in the Marley Football Festival tonight. The team started with three solid 0-0 draws in which they were largely the better team. They then suffered a 1-0 defeat but found their feet in the penultimate and final match; winning 1-0 and 2-0 respectively! Well done boys and thank you to all of the parents for collecting their children at the event.
