The boys won through to the semi-finals. In the semis the boys played against Holy Family and the score ended up 1-1, this meant the boys had to do a penalty shoot-out. It was a tense time but the boys remained focused and won this 3-2 and now the boys were in the finals.

The boys went in to the finals with a positive mind-set and played an absolutely fantastic match, however they were very unlucky and unfortunately they lost 1-0 to St. Peters. At the end the person presenting the trophies said it was a fantastic match and could have gone either way. Mr Storey and myself are extremely proud of each and every one of you. Well done boys, Mrs Gibson.

Orienteering Competition 21st March 2018

On Wednesday 12 children took part in an orienteering competition. The children had to go to Sandal Beat Woods to take part. There were over 176 children in total from different schools around Doncaster. Children were grouped into year 3/4 girls, year 3/4 boys and year 5/6 girls and yr 5/6 boys. The children were given a map of the woods and were then asked to use this to find coloured markers placed around the woods. Once they had found the marker the children then had to read the letter and remember this, children then used the map to help them find their way back to the holding circle. 

The children really enjoyed taking part in this activity and were able to find some of the markers. Well done to everyone that took part.

Inclusive Football Competition - 09.02.18 
On Friday 9th February, a selected group of children were invited to the School Games football tournament at the Keepmoat Stadium. The children took part in 4 matches and with it being 5-a-side, learned the importance of taking turns and encouraging other members of the team. 
The children also participated in football skills and drills with members of the Doncaster Titans. 
The children had chance to take part in a tournament with other mixed-age children. The children were selected as they do not usually play within the school team, and so thrived in a new competitive (but friendly and sportsman-like) environment. The children all reported loving the event, with comments such as, "I can't wait for the next one," and, "I'm going to practise my new skills at home tonight." 
We are all very excited for the next inclusive tournament in July!
