Sporting Competitions

Boys 7-A-Side Football Competition

A mixture of ten boys from years 5 and 6 participated in the 'Year 5 and 6, 7-A-Side Football Competition' competing against a number of local schools I would like to say a huge well done to our year 5 and 6 boys, who participated in this event. Our fabulous students won their cup competition in a tense finally, that after having a goal disallowed and striking the cross bar, ended 0-0. Bravely a number of pupils put themselves forward to participate in a penalty shootout to decide the winners, which we managed to win 3-2. I would also like to add an extra special well done, as the sportsmanship, that our pupils showed was outstanding and well received by staff from other schools, who made comment on how we should be very proud of our pupils.




Kabaddi Competition

Seven of our pupils participated within a Kabaddi tournament at Trinity Cathedral Academy. Being introduced to a new sport, our pupils were extremely excited to undertake this event. Working as a team, pupils created their own tactics to be used during matches, showing adaptability, resilience and understanding of one anothers strengths and weaknesses. I am delighted to say that Snapethorpe Primary ended the competition in 1st place. 
I would like to say a huge congratulations and well done to all pupils who participated.
