This afternoon’s football matches resulted in a loss, a draw and a win against Park School. The Year Five boys played particularly well to win 7-2, as well as hitting the crossbar twice and the post once. Good sportsmanship was evident all round and the support on both sides was highly motivating!
Yesterday evening QPA played against St Luke’s Primary at the David Lloyd centre. Our Year 6 team performed extremely well, Dylan scoring a hatrick and Reuben mastering the midfield, and the team achieved a 5-0 victory. The Year 4 team did not fair so well, losing 4-1, but showing great grit and inter-dependence throughout.
Today the Year 6 boys took part in the Predator football tournament at the Littledown Centre. In total, 23 schools attended the competition. Although we didn’t progress to the semi finals, the level of effort and teamwork from the boys was outstanding. Most impressive was the maturity the boys showed. They shared captaincy, chose positions and took it in turns to be substitutes, all independently. Our goals were scored by Dylan and Darren. Next up is the league fixtures which will start in the next week or two.
Congratulations to the Year 4 football team for their 7-1 victory over Stourfield Juniors. Great teamwork was shown by all.
We have been lucky to receive coaching from an F.A. coach this term. The sessions have been highly enjoyable and have developed our football skills, even if sometimes we did not use footballs! Resilience was also shown by the fact that everyone carried on despite the bad weather.
