Newsletter11 Nov 2016Twenty one pupils from UKS2 took part in the Leeds NW SSP Sports Hall Athletics Competition on Wednesday. They all performed brilliantly under pressure and managed to finish 2nd overall qualifying for the Leeds Plate Competition at Ralph Thoresby on Thursday 1st December. We’d like to say a big thank you to all the parents & guardians who came to support. Shania Colefax and Zahraa Chida came 1st in the hurdles race and Lily Shields partnered up with Zahraa in the 1 + 1 relay to also finish 1st. Jessica Brown, Lily Shields and Chloe Hall finished first in the team speed bounce competition with Chloe topping the leader board for most speed bounces in the whole competition! Jo Stead, Zak Moxon and Noah Lee-Bentham stormed ahead to take 1st place in the standing long jump beating 2nd place by a huge 45 points! Elliot Noon, Jack Thompson and Kai Lattibeaudiere also came 1st in the Vertical jump and Zak, Nicholas Darby and Jaidon Perrett came joint 1st in the speed bounce with Ireland Wood. A huge well done to all of you!
Our Netball team had a great win this week against Lawnspark. Omar Al Salman’s shooting was fantastic and Zak Moxon made countless interceptions throughout the court. Edie Turner and Lily Shields are our most improved players. Don’t let their size fool you! They are two skilful and assertive sportswomen! Cookridge lost their match to Kirkstall St Peters but still remain 2nd in the league table.
