Check out Journalist Gracie Nixon's report on the recent Sports Hall Athletics Semi-Final below.
We have now played all of our matches as part of the Leeds Netball League, winning 4 out of the 5 matches. We are waiting to hear our final position in the league table but fingers crossed for a top result! We have had a fantastic turn out at training this year with over 20 children attending each week which Miss Ridge and I are extremely proud of :)
Well done to all children who have attended training and represented the school in the league matches. Also, thank you to the members of our Sports Crew who accompanied us to the matches as part of their roles as a photographer or a journalist. The Netball season isn't over yet though, so watch this space!
On Monday 25th March, Deighton Gates played against Shadwell, who had their first match. Deighton Gates hosted the match. Shadwell won 7-4, even though Deighton Gates were confident and tried well.

What a team we have this year, not only have we won the local rounds and the semi finals but we are now through to the finals on Monday 3rd December...good luck everyone :)
This Monday (26th November), boys and girls from Years 5 & 6 participated in the semi - finals of the Sports Hall Athletics competition that was held at Wetherby High School. They went against four other schools and came 2nd place, which means they have got through to the next round. The course involved hurdles, relays in twos and fours, an obstacle track, javelin, chest push, stand longjumps, stand triplejumps, speed bounce and the vertical jump. Sucessfully, they came 5th only three times, and made a team effort by achieving lots of 1st and 2nd places. All the teachers and pupils at Deighton Gates hope you do as good as you did this time on your next round!

Sport Relief 2018
Everyone had a fantastic week raising money for Sport Relief. Thank you for your donations, we have raised £404.14 which is brilliant!!
Our Sports Leaders attended a day of training at Boston Spa High School with 5 other schools from the cluster. The children were trained in how to run activities and clubs, including how to ensure all children are listening and how to plan activities with various pieces of equipment. The children will be putting all their training in to action after Christmas with their lunchtime clubs.
In November, we played a friendly Netball Match against Bardsey Primary School. It was our first Netball Match this year and we hit it off with a great start winning the match, 12-2! Well done to everyone who took part and to those who scored the goals. You all played very well as a team, especially with the new High 5 rules and positions.
We took park in the Semi - Finals of the Sports Hall Athletics Competition in November. We competed against 4 other competitive schools and it was a tough competition. Unfortunately, we ended in 5th position but everyone who took part tried their best and ended the evening with smiles on their faces!
Sports hall athletics fun

Well done to all of the teams who took part in this spectacular event, but someone obviously had to win. In 4th place was St James’, in 3rd place was St Mary’s, in 2nd place was Collingham and in 1st place was Deighton Gates who will be going through to the semi final of the challenge cup! J

Football News It has been a busy start to the football season as we have played three matches recently: - On the 5th October, Deighton Gates boys’ football team played a home match VS Bramham Primary School. It was a very exciting game, where we won 7-0, which gives us two clean sheets in a row, as last Friday we won 4-0 against St Josephs. Our first goal (by Zayn) boosted our confidence, which gave us a further four goals within the first half. We then received a penalty from a definite handball and Ben went up to take it. Unfortunately, the keeper pulled of a fantastic save but we still went on to win 7-0, as you already know. We’d like to say a big thank you to Miss Pickles for coaching us....... And Mr Bilton for refereeing.....Also, another thank you, to the whole team who put in the time and effort to win our first two games!
