KS1 Football Tournament

admin on: Sports Blog

Tonight, our KS1 footballers took to Scissett Middle School to take part in the Shelley Pyramid KS1 Football Tournament.

They took part in three different games against Birds Edge, St Aidans and Kayes and they had one win and two losses. Overall, our Scissett team placed third and we are so proud of their achievements - especially as most of the team were in Year 1 and they were competing against teams full of Year 2s!

Well done Scissett - a great event which you should all be very proud of.

A big well done to Mia from Year 5! Over half term, she represented the whole of Kirklees at a swimming competition showing what great sportspeople we have at Scissett. 

Mia regularly competes in Borough of Kirklees (BOK) swimming competitions - she is definitely a swimmer to watch for the future!

Our sporting excellence continues at Scissett this week.

On Wednesday 9th October, Cockroft Class went to Shelley College to take part in the KS1 Sports Hall Athletics competition. Every child took part in a track or field event and cheered on their peers.

They worked so hard and their efforts were certainly rewarded by coming in third place - the highest placing we have ever achieved in a Sports Hall Athletics competition. Congratulations Year 1 - you made us all proud!

Thank you to Mr Morris, Mrs Hughes and Mr Killock from the Shelley Sports Partnership for providing this opportunity for us. Thank you also to Miss Buckley, Mrs Horn, Mrs Morris and Mrs Wilkinson for attending the event with us, we truly value your support.

A great big well done to the eight children from Years 4 and 5 that represented Scissett at our Shelley Pyramid Swimming Gala.

For the first year in memory, every child qualified to reach the final of their respective swims. An extra special well done goes to Nieve (Year 5) for coming first out of the whole pyramid for her breaststroke and our mixed relay team who placed third.

Overall, Scissett came third in the Swimming Gala - a result that we are so proud of!

A big well done to the girls who represented Scissett at the Shelley Pyramid Hi 5 Netball tournament on Tuesday 30th April. We were delighted to be able to enter two teams into this event and they competed against 15 other teams from local school. All twelve girls showed exceptional skill and they showed their dedication by attending weekly practices to train for the event. Miss Goodall and Miss Buckley were thrilled to cheer them on and they were very impressed by their precise footwork and overall teamwork skills. 

We can't wait to enter the competition next year - maybe a netball club might be in the making!
