Yr 2/3 Girls Football
A brilliant performance by our Y2/3 Girls’ Football team at the Shelley Pyramid tournament. They played 5 games - won 3, drew 1, lost 1 - and finished joint runners-up, which is another amazing result for our school. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were treated to an appearance from Michael Hefele of Huddersfield Town!
Well done girls – you were all A-MA-ZING!
