On Wednesday 9th January 2020 our Girls football team took part in the at the FA West Riding headquarters in Rothwell. The girls played exceptionally well, coming back from a goal down to win 3-1. The goals were scored by Matilda (two) and Jasmine. As a result of this victory, our girls have earned a place in the North of England area finals. Well done to all!
Fantastic efforts from our Year 5 and 6 Sports Hall Athletics team on Thursday night. Each member tried their best and contributed towards our success – 1st place! This means we progress to the next round – the Pennine Sports Final in January.
It was lovely to see all the children encouraging each other, and showing excellent manners to the adults involved.
Well done, Crowlees Athletics Team!
Year 4 Sports Hall Athletics
The Year 4 team was small but brilliant at the Sports Hall Athletics competition on Tuesday. As there were only 5 of them, they had to help each other out and do a LOT of running! They really enjoyed the events and we saw some incredibly fast running from all five of them.
Thank you Kitty, Josh, Oliver, Finn and Will!
The Year 6 football team took part in a 7-a-side tournament at St John Fisher High School. They played 5 matches in total. Each match lasted 10 minutes. At the end of the tournament, Crowlees has won 3 matches, drawn 1 and lost 1. Unfortunately for us, St Mary’s Batley had also finished on 10 points, however they had scored more goals overall which meant they were the winners. Despite the disappointing result, the boys enjoyed the tournament and played some super football. I was impressed with the speed, teamwork and resilience shown by the boys. Well done!
This afternoon, 23 children from KS2, who had qualified for this round of the cross country competition, attended the Pennine Sports final at Salendine Nook High School.
The playing fields were packed with athletes and spectators. Each field of runners was made up of at least 50 children.
The Year 3 children went first with George coming 3rd, Archie 6th, Oliver 26th, Charles 27th and Luke 36th. They have qualified as a team for the Kirklees final!
Millie finished 7th for the Year 3 girls and Maisy 35th. Unfortunately they missed out on qualifying. Thomas finished in 25th in the Year 4 boys race. For Year 5, Charlie 26th, Oliver 28th, Matthew 30th, Kit 31st, and Bobby 49th. Super running in a field of over 60 runners, but sadly they haven’t qualified for the next round. The Year 5 girls have qualified though! Poppy finished 3rd, Matilda 11th, Lauren 12th, Jessica 22nd, and Sophie 23rd.
Finally the Year 6 boys ran and finished: Finn 15th, Andrei 29th, Robin 35th, and George 38th.
Thank you to all our competitors for their hard work and excellent attitudes at both events. Well done!
Over 60 children from the whole of KS2 took part in the Mirfield round of the cross country competitions which took place at Crossley Fields. The course was challenging; it seemed quite long to some of the children and one side had a gentle slope!
There was a great atmosphere; plenty of cheering each other on and congratulating each other on fantastic results.
And fantastic results they were…
All our children ran well and 23 qualified for the Pennine Sports Final at Salendine Nook High School.
Teams from Year 3, Year 5, and Year 6 qualified, as well as 3 individuals. Well done to: Archie, George, Oliver, Charles, Luke, Maisy, Millie, Thomas, Charlie, Matthew, Oliver, Bobby, Kit, Poppy, Matilda, Sophie, Jessica, Lauren, Finn, Alfie, Robin, George and Andrei.
Spen Valley Swimming Gala 2019
What a team!
On Wednesday 27th March 2019, the Crowlees Swimming Team attended the Spen Valley Schools Swimming Gala. Our team consisted of 6 children from Years 4 and 6, 3 girls and 3 boys.
They were competing in breaststroke, front crawl and backstroke. The final race for each team was the freestyle relay.
Our team worked incredibly hard and we were delighted that EVERY member of our team managed to progress to the finals of their races. As the evening progressed, we were even more proud to see Poppy win gold in the girls’ breaststroke, Oliver win 4th in the boys’ breaststroke, Eleanor win silver in the girls’ backstroke, Dylan win gold in the boys’ backstroke, Veronica win bronze in the girls’ front crawl, and finally, Edward win silver in the boys’ front crawl!
Already over the moon with our results, both the teams went on to smash their heats for the relays, and then comfortably win their relay finals!
What a night! We were exhausted just watching and cheering, so I can only imagine how tired the team must have been!
At the end of the gala, we were delighted to receive the ‘Girls’ Team’ award and the ‘Boys’ Team’ award, as well as the ‘Overall Team’ trophy!
We are so very proud of the whole team, who not only swam like champions but displayed all the Crowlees Values whilst competing.
Well done to our amazing book teams, who represented us at The World Book Day Quiz at Huddersfield Town Hall on Thursday 7th March.
They had a fun afternoon and one of our teams even managed to come 3rd out of 34!
Sports Hall Athletics Final – January 2019
Having won the Mirfield round, the Crowlees athletics team were invited to take part in the Pennine Sports Final at the end of January.
Mr Goodall very kindly offered to run some extra training sessions to help us prepare for the event as we knew the competition would be tough.
When we arrived, we were surprised to see how busy the event was and that we would be competing against 15 other schools.
We really enjoyed the event and we had some excellent performance, although the competition in our heat was particularly challenging.
Overall, we finished in 7th place. We were extremely proud of our efforts!
Well done, Year 5 and 6!
