Year 5/6 Football match15/12/17
With excitement clearly on our faces, 12 members of Year 5 and 6 went to Oasis Academy on the Isle of Sheppey to compete in a Football Tournament. The coach ride was long but that only fuelled their enthusiasm to get going.
Once at the site, we learnt the pitches we would play on and who against. At the tournament were a spectacular group of 36 teams! So many children and adults enjoying the games.
Team A were on Pitch 1 and won 2 out of 5 matches. Leoni Miller scored the first goal for this team and she was incredible! Ashton and Jake P had amazing team work covering all corners of the pitch without fear of the ball and Josh and Sepiso were incredible defenders, helping Jasper keep those goals out!
Team B were on Pitch 3 lost all matches but MY GOODNESS they were determined each time. “Even though we lost, we didn’t lower our heads. We kept them high!” Ashton from Year 6. Emily-May and Bianca kept the boys on their teams in check and continued to encourage each member. Enrique, the only Year 5, was fearless and was keen to try all positions on the pitch. Sam and Jake continued to show great sportsman ship by remembering to get the team to shakes hands with their opponents, what great representatives for our school.
“I had so much fun, I want to do it again.” Bianca said.
