Girls football team

This week the fixtures were coming in thick and fast, with a selection of our key stage 2 children taking part in both football and rugby fixtures.

On Tuesday the year 3 and 4 girl’s football team hosted a team from Delamere in their first friendly fixture as a girls only side. The girls got off to a good start, with a strong midfield helping to set up the drive forward and narrowly missing the goal on several occasions. Unfortunately, after a few counter attacks from Delamere, they fought through our defence to take a 1-0 lead. For their first football game both teams played incredibly well and some excellent skill and determination was shown throughout the match. It will be the boys' turn to show off their football skills in two weeks time.


On Thursday afternoon, nine children went to the Chester School Sports Partnership Tag Rugby Mega-fest at Chester Rugby club. The afternoon started with a skills session, which focussed on dodging, moving and passing the ball. Following this the team took part in a series of games against various schools from the local area, the children worked together really well, both defending and attacking as a team, winning 3 out of the 4 games. All of the team had a great time playing and developing their rugby skills.

Next week our year 1 football team will be attending a Mini Kickers tournament at Blacon high school.

In preparation for these games all of the classes have been developing their understanding of rules and tactics by playing modified games in both netball and football.
