Cross Country Competition

19.09.2017

 

This week our Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils participated in the Cathedral Cluster School Cross Country Competition. Competitors from St Michaels, Methodist, Flanshaw, Lawefield, the Mount and Snapethorpe Primary school took part in a number of gruelling races over 900m and 1500m distances.

 

Our runners performed admirably, against a number of top quality runners, some of which have represented Wakefield on a National level. After an afternoon of mud, heavy breathing and sore muscles our pupils can be extremely proud of themselves. Mr Edwards was over the moon with the determination his team showed, with special mention going to Ebony in year 4, who came third out of 30 children in her race. Although all runners put in excellent performances, it was not enough to stop St Michaels from going home as victors. Well done everyone.

 

Winners: St Michaels

Snapethorpe Position: 5th

 

Tag Rugby Competition

This week our Year 5 and 6 pupils participated in the Cathedral Cluster School Tag Rugby Competition. Competitors from St Michaels, Methodist, Flanshaw, Lawefield, the Mount and Snapethorpe Primary School took part in a round robin tournament to decide who would be this years tag rugby champions..

 

Our pupils performed superbly, giving all that they had in a number of gruelling games, against some much larger opposition players. After a slow start which ended with two defats, Snapethorpe began to get into their groove, taking gaining a draw against The Mount and a win against Flanshaw. Snapethorpe then took on the eventual winners ST Michaels and were level at 1 try each for most of the game, before a collision of heads by two Snapthethorpe players, allowed for a gap to appear in our defence, and a try for St Michaels with only 20seconds left.

Not to be deflated Snapthorpe pulled together in their final game, two players down and managed to gain a second win over Flanshaw
