Pupils from year 5 and 6 entered a hockey tournament at Abraham Moss High School. Both teams worked extremely hard, and teachers from other schools commented on their skills. Team X played 5 games winning 4 of them. Team Y also played 5 games winning one.

Year 5 & 6 Football @ MUFC Premier League Tournament
Every team in the premier league hosts a tournament for local schools to enter. We took part in MUFC's tournament at The Cliff Training Ground along with 7 other schools. We lost our first game 6-0 and won the second game 2-1 with goals from Marcus and Kaylan Lee. This gave us a slim chance of progressing to the final, and after we took the lead in our final game with a stunning strike from Marcus we had a glimmer of hope. We went on to loose the game 3-1. After suffering such a defeat in the first game all pupils who took part should be proud of themselves for the hard work they put in to the subsequent games. Player of the tournament - Marcus.
Year 5 & 6 Basketball @ St Matthews Week 2
After our performance in week one we qualified to the 'champions league' which meant we had an opportunity to get the the Citywide finals.

Another fantastic performance led to a 4-2 win against Christ the King with baskets from Callum and Emmanuel. Going into the last game we had a fantastic chance to progress to the finals but we lost 2-0. We finished in joint 2nd place overall on points, and with the top 2 teams progressing through to the next stage baskets scored was taken into account. We had scored less baskets than the other team and therefore finished 3rd overall out of 10 teams. All pupils who took part should be extremely proud of themselves.

A group of year 5 & 6 pupils made a trip to Our Lady's High School for a dance festival. They have spent the last term learning Cheerleading and Street Dance with Ashely their dance teacher. The idea of the festival wasn't competitive, it was just an opportunity to showcase the dances they have been learning. At the end of the festival pupils were invited to take part in a dance off, with an opportunity to win some medals. Our pupils did an amazing job, managing to win 2 gold medals, 1 silver and 1 bronze. Well done to all that took part.

Christ The King proved to be good opposition, with the game finishing 6-1 to Christ The King. Kaylan-Lee scored our only goal of the game, and was very unlucky not to get a second, manging to hit both posts with one shot. Man of the match was Brandon Collinge for some excellent tackling and never giving up.
