This is always a quiet term in the sporting calendar but we have had a few sporting events.
During the Spring term, Key Stage One had a visit from Yorkshire Country Cricket Club to participate in an 'All Stars Cricket' session. The children were given the opportunity to learn about the 3 key areas of the game - bowling, batting and fielding! We had some fantastic skills on show, with potentially future England cricketers in the making!
We participated in the next round of the athletics competition, we tried very hard but unfortunately we just missed out on a place in the next round. Well done to the whole team.
Leeds Inclusive Sports Event
We took a small group of children to this event for the first time this year. It was a huge success and was enjoyed by all. We shall definitely be taking a bigger team next year!
We continue to take part in a range of competitions and have had many children take part for the very first time which is lovely to see.
We have had a mixed set of results so far this season but are improving with every match. We have scored some great goals and represented the school very well. Mr Dougal and the team are looking forward to the season restarting in the new year.
U 11 and U9 tournaments
We took part in 2 football tournaments – we played well but did not make it out of the group stages.
Our team took part in the annual tournament and managed to get through to the next stage which will take place in the new year now.
Year 5 Leeds Dodgeball Cup
Our Year 5 children participated in this event and won! They will now go through to the final stages of the Yorkshire Dodgeball Cup which will take place in the summer term – well done!
Mrs Bode has entered out team in a netball league – a first for Morley Victoria. We have played some friendly matches so far and won 5-0 and the actual matches will be starting in the spring term. Mrs Bode has also qualified as a netball referee.
We are working hard this year to make sure our playgrounds are as active and productive as possible. We have colour zoned the playgrounds, recruited play leaders from year 5 to work with both KS1 and KS2 children and have adults in the playground daily to facilitate active play.
PE Partner continue to offer clubs every evening of the week – please visit their website to find out what they have on offer. We are also lucky enough to have staff who also run clubs of their own for a 6 week period that the children can enjoy. Our Year 6 children also organised and ran their very own ‘secret santa’ at Youth Group. It was lovely to see their reactions as they open their thoughtful gifts. Look out for some after school Art Clubs next term – run by professionals!
