Sporting Events 2017-2018
We have had so many sporting events this term; we have tried to include the results of most!
All year groups have participated in a sports afternoon which was enjoyed by all. All of the children participated in a number of events and enjoyed competing against each
other. A huge thank you to the older children who helped at Reception and Key Stage 1 events. The older children have also participated in the annual 10 Step award, this consists of 12 events to gain personal best scores that they try to improve on, year on year.
The World Cup
It has been an exciting time in school over the past few weeks as football fever has taken over. We have
each had teams to follow and the teams who qualified have played each lunchtime in the quarter finals, semi finals and final. All of KS2 have been a great audience.
We have also learnt facts about our countries which has been really interesting.
Morley Victoria is a ‘can do’ school for all – Local Authority Advisor
PE Partner after school clubs
Mr Rhodes is very busy every night delivering exciting clubs to all year groups within school. We have also
started to have PE Partner run their holiday club at Morley Victoria which you can book on their website!
The children learn new skills that they can apply within PE lessons. They get the opportunity to take part in
games with different age groups in school.
Mrs Cherry and Mrs Hughes have worked really hard with the Year 5 and 6 netball club this year. They have
improved their skills and their ability to work together as a team. They finished the year by playing the teachers at their request! It was a tough match and the teachers did very well!
The Elstub Cup
We welcomed back our very own Mr Elstub to referee our annual Elstub Cup. Both Year 6 classes played one
another and it was a great game enjoyed by all.
There is not much to say about this apart from well done Year 5 – we smashed it and came home with the most enormous trophy, we were so proud!
This is always a quiet term in the sporting calendar but we have so many events planned for the Summer term. Many events were cancelled this term due to bad weather.
We took part in our cluster dodgeball competition. Year 6 played really well, we had close matches and in the end we came third. It was very close only three points separating first and third place.
The Football Season
Due to the bad weather the football season has not really started again – many matches have been cancelled. We still have a few games to play before the season comes to an end. We are currently mid table and looking forward to moving up!
We took part in the annual swimming Gala at John Charles. This was a great experience for all involved and we came back with some medals – well done to our swimming team!
Our Year 5 children are due to take part in an ASPIRE Basketball competition – the results will be announced after the competition.
The children in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two have been working on their dance skills this term. They have thoroughly enjoyed every session.
Running club has started again. We are working on our pace and increasing our distance each week.
We had a large group of children who participated in a very muddy cross country event. We worked very well and managed to come second overall. Morley Victoria did have the actual winner of the under 11’s race too! A huge well done for showing perseverance and resilience!
Our Year 5 and 6 children have played lots of football matches this term. They have worked really hard, scored some great goals and worked as a team and shown great effort and determination in all matches. The results have been mixed – Mr Dougal has praised the team in their approach and resilient attitude towards each match.
Year 5 took part in an ASPIRE football tournament. It is safe to say they smashed it and won by an absolute mile! Well done.
Many of the children have participated in dance workshops this term which they have thoroughly enjoyed. Key stage one and two have also had chance to join an after school club on a Thursday – again this has been a real success.
Mrs Cherry and Mrs Hughes have been working hard with year 5 and 6 to improve their passing skills and their marking and shooting techniques. They are getting ready to have a match later on in the school year.
The Running Club have been working hard to increase both their sprinting speed and their stamina over longer distances. Mrs Wood has been very impressed with their growth mindset approach to challenges.
Our athletics team have worked very hard this term. Miss Young has been so pleased with their performance. They won the South Leeds heats! They then progressed to the next round where they came 4th.
