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!

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!
