3/4 Girls Friendly

3/4 Girls Friendly

Well done to our Year 3/4 girls football team that tonight played against Apley Wood. Our girls seem to be improving game by game and tonight was no different with another fantastic team performance. The girls were winning 9-0 at half time so we decided to split the team in half and have two matches because Apley had enough girls to make up two teams. This gave our girls more of challenge and one they accepted without complaining. Well done again girls. #TeamGP

I forgot to take a team photo tonight, so I decided to take a picture of the lovely pitch at Apley Wood.

Game of two Halves

Game of two Halves

Well done to our Year 3/4 girls football team that played a friendly against Redhill tonight. It took our girls a while to adapt to the big pitch and we found ourselves 3-0 within 10 minutes. The girls never gave up though and managed to keep the score to 3-0 coming in at half time. At half time we talked about how to adapt to a big pitch and we needed to squeeze in a bit more and not play so wide and the 2nd half was a totally different game. We had a few clear chances early on but their keeper seemed unbeatable at times. We finally scored with 5 minutes left and kept the pressure on but couldn’t get that next goal. The final score was 3-1 to Redhill. So proud of our girls for not giving up tonight, many teams would of given up after going 3-0 down so early but our girls showed great character to keep battling right to the end. Well done to the girls that played their first game of the year tonight, you did a great job. Special mention to our brick wall of a defence, defending isn’t always the most glamorous of roles but you two were absolutely superb again tonight. We have learnt more tonight than we have from our previous 3 wins. We will bounce back stronger #TeamGP

Well done to our girls football team that had to play in some very tricky conditions tonight against St Lukes. The muddy pitch didn’t stop our girls though and they won 7-2. For most of the girls this was only the first or 2nd time they had played for the school team this year. Special mention to Ava and Ruby that stepped in last minute when two other girls had to drop out, we couldn’t of done it without you. Also thank you to your parents for letting you play. Well done again girls #TeamGP #PlayInAnyConditions

5/6 Girls Friendly

5/6 Girls Friendly

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight won 7-0 against Donnington Wood Junior School. The game was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests, but our defence and goalkeeper were on top form to keep our clean sheet. This is only the second time some of the girls had ever represented our girls football team, but you would never of guessed after the fantastic team display they put on. Well done again girls #TeamGP

Year 2 Jamaican Street Cricket Festival

Well done to our Year 2 Cricket team that had a fantastic morning at the Telford & Wrekin Sports Partnership and Shropshire Cricket festival playing Jamaican Street Cricket. The children improved so much after narrowly losing their first game, winning their next 3 matches. But the main thing is, they all had fun trying a new sport. #TeamGP #Cricket #Shropshire
