The resolute girls of year 5 and 6 showed incredible guile to conquer all-comers and win the Northampton Town School Sports Federation Cup at The GOALS Centre this evening.
Our 10 fabulous fleurs shone in the Autumn sun and recorded 5 remarkable victories without conceding a goal in an incredible display of grit and determination.
After winning our qualifying group with 3 consecutive wins, the girls met Millway Primary in the semi-final. An inspirational display of marking from Daisy frustrated their star payer and a predatory strike from Katie took us to the Final against Caroline Chisholm.
Once again, our star goalkeeper Chloe denied the opposition for the fifth consecutive game before Kimran fired into the top corner to win the Cup!
The girls literally ran themselves into the ground for our school – Lucy never stopped running, Joy lead by example and contributed 4 goals, Priya and Isobel were tenacious and defiant in defence, Lillie threw herself into every challenge and dribble whilst Millie was ever reliable and selfless in her contribution to the team.
Well done girls, you worked your socks off and got what you deserved – your school is INCREDiBLY proud of you.
Vive Les Femme Fleurs!
Great work in spellings today – we have been learning how to spell ‘-cious’ and ‘-tious’ words:
Keep practising – we will be testing you…sometime! Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

The Football Tournament:
‘On Wednesday afternoon nine year fives and year sixes went to a girls football tournament, it was seven a side each game so we had two subs, in conclusion we shared roles on the pitch. The first game we played was against Abington Vale School, in this game we meant for it to be only seven minutes, but as one team didn’t show up in the group stages, we had the games for fifteen minutes e.g two halves. In the first half it was 1-0 to the opposition. Although we were losing Joy, our star player, brought it back and we won 2-1. After this we had to get energy and enthusiasm back into our system by eating nourishing and glucose filled snacks at half-time. Then, it was the next game where we won 2-0. Sadly in our third game we lost 1-0. Overall we came third out of fifteen schools. When the tournament was over, everyone was just happy and celebrating when Mr Wainwright split his trousers!’

The football tournament
‘Our astonishing year 5/6 team represented our school with dignity and moreover, pride. Playing four 15 minute games (including an extra-time semi-final) and winning three of them. Sharing roles of and on the pitch we managed to have a strong team that was hard to beat. Everyone took care to ensure they devoured their share of energy boosting nourishment at every half time. Our positions were fair, furthermore our goalie was sensational – how she only let in two goals in the entire tournament is a mystery! As a team we managed to score a total of 8 goals Joy scored 5 Kimran scored 2 and Lucy scored 1. As he was celebrating, Mr Wainwright split his trousers.’
