On Thursday, the girl’s football team played a match against the girls from Morven Park. We took a young team, consisting of mostly year 4’s and 5’s, and played in some fairly challenging conditions. The whole team were absolutely brilliant throughout, demonstrating amazing teamwork, sportsmanship and resilience. Chloe Hayward and Ashleigh Houston wrote a report of the game:
After school, the girls football team (us, Cassia, Chloe L, Nicola, Isabelle M, Daisy, Lily and Eloise) went to Morven Park to play a game. When we got there, it was wet, damp and muddy, which wasn’t good for us. All the girls we were playing against were year 6’s but we didn’t mind. The first goal went to Morven Park. Next, Cassia had an amazing shot and managed to score. We were all cheering, but then Morven Park scored two more to make it 3-1 at half time.
In the second half, Cassia scored a banger of a goal to make it 3-2 to them and Daisy, our goalkeeper, made some amazing saves. Unfortunately, they scored two more in the second half. At the end of the match, it was 5-2 to them. We shook hands and said well done. Mr Tyler was so proud and gave us some biscuits. We all went home and we were happy with what we achieved. Thank you for reading our report.

When we went rowing on Tuesday night, I really enjoyed it and we competed at a school called Kirkby and we came 7th. We worked as a big team because if we fell off the seat one of our team members would push us back on. When we got on, we needed our feet strapping in. Everyone cheered each other on and that made us feel really happy.

It was great to come second. Mrs Hathersmith was so proud. We all enjoyed ourselves. It was amazing.

In addition, the children have qualified for the district finals- a great achievement. Well done!
Tuesday saw an exciting spectacle with the year 4 indoor athletics competition. The children were superb and competed in different athletic events. They showed fantastic teamwork and supported each other throughout the evening. Mimi- Jo fell in one race, picked herself up and continued with true grit and perseverance. She came back to win the race! Other highlights include Finley winning the chest press, Cassia winning the triple jump, Daisy and Lily winning the chest push and everyone for winning 9 out of the 12 races. They finished an incredible second overall and are hoping (fingers crossed) that it is enough to go through to the district finals.
The girls were absolutely phenomenal during a tournament at Leen Mills on Tuesday. We had three year 5’s and six year 4’s on our team and most of the other teams were made up of year 6’s. The girls drew 2 games out of 4 and Isabelle Morrison scored a wonderful goal after some great play by Cassia against Croft in a 1-1 draw. Isabelle Whitworth was in goal for the first time and overcame nerves to put in some brilliant performances. All of the girls showed outstanding sportsmanship throughout and displayed all our Hillside values, teamwork in particular. Miss McCormick and I are incredibly proud!
