The Year 5 and 6 football competed in the final qualifying round of the West Leeds Football Tournament on Tuesday night. Conditions weren't ideal with the temperatures plummeting and icy rain falling throughout the evening. The team played 2 matches against Park Spring and Pudsey Bolton Royd, being victorious in both. Billy scored the goals in a 2-0 win over Park Spring whilst Billy, Tomas, Logan, Henry and Teddy all got on the score sheet in a 5-0 win against Bolton Royd. This now means that the boys have made it through to the West Leeds final on 6th May at Goals Soccer Centre in Kirkstall. Letters will be sent out closer to the time to those members of Year 5 and 6 who were part of the qualifying squad.
A special mention must go to Tomas for fantastic sportmanship. During the tournament, Bolton Royd's goal keeper was injured whilst attempting a save. The goal was scored but before joining his team to celebrate, Tomas went straight to the goal keeper to check he was OK. Another special mention to Logan who made sure he went to shake hands with the subbed players from the opposition teams as well as those who finished the game. These were fabulous acts of sportsmanship that the boys should be very proud of.
8 Year 5 pupils represented school in the city wide qualifier for Orienteering at Nunroyd Park in Yeadon. The conditions were cold and muddy but this didn't put our two teams off and they showed superb fitness, problem solving and teamwork skills. The teams finished with superb results and placed 7th and 11th - well done Year 5!
8 Year 5 and 6 girls went to football city to compete in the LUFC Foundation City Wide Tournament on Thursday. The girls played some fabulous football and represented the school superbly as always. They made it all the way to the semi-final, missing out on the Final by only 1 goal! All the staff members said how fabulous the girls were and members of staff from other schools praised the sportsmanship and attitude our girls showed! Well done everyone!
Our U11 football team once again took to the pitch to attempt to make it through to the next round of the football. The conditions were less than idea with rain and freezing temperatures not being helped by incredibly high winds. The boys battled through, playing six games and winning five and drawing one. The boys now move on to the next round which is next week. Letters have already been sent for this event.
A group of Year 3 and 4 girls took part in a football practice event at Priesthorpe School on Tuesday night. Despite never playing as a team before, the girls showed real grit and determination to do their best and had a really great go. For some of the girls, this was their first time representing school at a sporting event and should be super proud of their efforts. Thanks to Miss Lanaway and Miss Rowley-Smith for giving up their evening to take the children to the event. It wouldn't happen without you!
Year 4 enjoyed a friendly competition at Crawshaw Academy, playing lots and lots of tennis against pupils from other schools.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who took the children to the event, as well as Miss Rowley-Smith who accompanied Springbank to the event. As always, we couldn't have done it without you!

On Thursday, 48 children from Years 3 to 6 took part in a Cross-Country participation event at Farnley Academy. The weather stayed relatively kind to us but the rain earlier in the day made the ground very slippy and muddy but all the children persevered and put 100% effort into their races. We couldn't have asked any more from the children and we are very, very proud of them. A big thank you to all parents who transported children to the event, and to Miss Lax and Miss Rowley-Smith for supporting the children.
