⚽️⚽️Year 7 Football News ⚽️⚽️

A search for a win over Pool Hayes continues as we fell 3-1. However we are getting closer.
After a disorganised first half things turned around for the second half and we edged it.

A great attitude form the new year 7`s and considering they have only had 1 x 40 mins training session prior to what is usually the toughest match of the season I think we will do well.

Notable performances from, Lewis P "two footed tackle" who bossed defence. Lewis C switched to goal keeper at half time and saved a penalty. Jenson H scored a screamer and star substitute Prince F game on to sure up the defence.


⭐️⭐️Thankyou to the eveyone who joined us for our open evening last night. ⭐️⭐️

🇫🇷🇪🇸European Day of Languages🇫🇷🇪🇸

Today we will be celebrating with form activities and using languages across the curriculum.

Speaking different languages shouldn’t be a barrier, on the contrary, it should open doors for achieving intercultural understanding.

Language learning brings benefits to everyone. Even if you only know a few words of the language of the country that you visit (for example on holiday), this enables you to make new friends and contacts.
