On Tuesday the whole of Wharfe Class spent the afternoon at St. John Fishers competing in a multi-skills festival with St. Robert’s and St. Josephs. The children had great fun competing in a range of activities like target throwing, hockey dribbling and balance tests. The children behaved excellently and Mr Wilson and Mrs Conroy were impressed with their skills and attitude all afternoon.
For the second time this year St. Mary’s were involved in penalty heartache as last week the Year 5 & 6 Girls Football team were beaten in sudden death penalties in the Harrogate Final. After the opening round the girls topped their pool winning four and drawing two of their games, only conceding one goal. After a goalless final it came down to penalties, then sudden death penalties with Rosset Acre keeping their composure to seal victory. It was a fantastic effort by the girls and Mr Wilson was very proud of their second place finish.
On Thursday Year 5 & 6 Sportshall Athletics team competed in the Harrogate Final, they ran, jumped & threw superbly well, but narrowly missed out on regaining their title, losing out to Pannal.
