ProStrike Football Fundraiser - Day 1 - Monday 5th June 2023
We kickstarted our Football Fundraiser today with EYFS and Year 1. The children were incredibly excited and had some powerful shots at goal. The highest score of the day was 49kph! Even Miss Chapman gave it a go.
Each child also took home their very own participation certificate with their scores written on. Remember: the more money you raise, the more prizes you win!
MAT Football Tournament – Year 6 – Lee Chapel Primary School – Tuesday 28th March 2023
To end the Spring Term in good spirits, we were invited to participate in a MAT football tournament at Lee Chapel Primary School. We entered two boys teams and one girls team; they played tremendously (even in the grizzly weather)! Our girls team, who were incredible, played six games and came 4th in the group stages, which meant we progressed to the semi-finals! It was a nail-biting game as the match ended in a draw and we just missed out on a place in the final. The girls team came 3rd overall in the tournament and we couldn’t be prouder of their hard work, resilience and teamwork.
Our boys team, Phoenix B, were brilliant and worked incredibly hard in all of their matches. They scored some great goals and saved some difficult shots at goal against tough opposition. They just missed out on a spot in the semi-finals but they played amazingly well!
Our boys team, Phoenix A, were phenomenal. They played four games and came 2nd in the group stages, which meant we had another Phoenix team progressing to the semi-finals! We had a tough match ahead and as a result, we had to compete in a penalty shootout against Lee Chapel to decide a winner. We could barely watch! As Lee Chapel took their last shot, Phoenix made an incredible save which meant we were triumphant and secured a well-deserved place in the final! The boys team played fantastically in the final and were runners up overall in the tournament.
A huge well done to our ‘Players of the Match’, MC and CC. Go team Phoenix!
KS2 Football Tournament – Friday 18th November 2022
We were extremely lucky to be invited to attend a KS2 football tournament, hosted by Millhouse Primary School, on Friday. Our two teams were incredibly proud to be representing Phoenix, wearing our school colours, and played amazingly well. The highlight of the tournament was our 2-0 win against Rydene! A special congratulations to our ‘Players of the Match’, OP and IC – a huge well done! Go team Phoenix!
