Football Trials

Trials for the Year 5 and 6 boys’ football club and Year 6 girls’ football club will take place tomorrow.

All children from Year  4 , 5 and 6 are welcome to come and attend trials. Both clubs will train after school and have a limited amount of places.

However, anyone who doesn’t get a place in the after school clubs has the opportunity to attend a lunch time B Team Football Club. This club is always well attended and the children get to play a match towards the end of the year. There is still the opportunity to train with the after school clubs if players show good improvement and commitment.

A letter will be sent out to confirm if you have a place.

Cross Country

On Monday Year 4, 5 and 6 went to Overton Park to compete in the annual House Cross Country Event. There were some great races and it was excellent to hear all the children cheering on their teams.

Well done to Yellow House who were the overall winners.
