EFL Football Kids Cup

Last night some of our Y4, 5 & 6 boys attended the EFL Kids Cup Football competitions. This is a very high pressure competition as the overall winner gets to represent Hull at the grand final held at Wembley Stadium.

Unfortunately, we did not qualify for a chance to reach Wembley after some very tough group games against Cavendish and Cowick. However, our boys did show some great team spirit and this was a good opportunity to practise ready for the seven aside finals in a few weeks.

Rugby World Cup!

Y56 have been getting very excited about the Rugby World Cup, so much so that we had a go at creating our own ‘Haka’ at after school rugby club!


Last week our children attended the Hull Active Schools inter-school cross country championships. These children were selected because they finished in the top 32 in our intra-house races held at school a few weeks ago.

For us, the day comprised of four races: girls B, boys B, girls A and finally boys A. The A races were ran by our top 6 intra-house finishers and they had the chance of qualifying for the county finals!

The results on the day were fantastic in both the B and A races. In the girls A race, Tamzin L finished 5th with Macy P finishing 8th which meant automatic qualification to the county finals. However, this wasn’t our only success. In the boys A race, Harry M, Nico A and Luca A also finished in the top ten (5th, 6th and 7th) meaning we already had five county final qualifications.

The unknown result on the day was the team events. In all races, the first four runners from each school formed that school’s A team, the next four B team and so on. The finishing positions of these runners are added up and compared to other schools. These results often take a week to come in so children had to wait patiently to see if how they had done.

We were not disappointed! CP have won the team event on both the boys and girls A races!! In the B races, CP wont the A, B, C and D races in both the boy and girls!

These are incredible results and we are very proud to be taking two teams to the county finals to represent Hull!

Tonight our boys got their football season underway by winning the Hull Active Schools 7-aside football qualifiers. The boys played exceptionally well, winning all of their group games without conceding a goal. In the final game, an early goal eventually led to extra-time. With no-goals scored, penalties followed.

Top-scorer Alfie Maskell settled the boys down by scoring the first penalty and things got even better when star keeper Matthew Southwick saved the next two shots. A few wide shots and post collisions followed, but CP were the eventual winners and go on to the Grand Finals on December 1st.

This was the first outing for captain Harry Maskell, who worked hard in the middle and partnered up with cousin  Alfie; enabling to score an incredible amount of goals!

Well done boys.

Y56 Intra-House Cross Country: Wilberforce win!

Today was our annual intra-house cross country competition. Like other years, the stakes were high as children were not only competing to help their house win, but to earn a place on the team representing the school at the Level 2 inter-school competition in two weeks.

Both races were fantastic to watch and every runner showed great determination and self-belief. The winner of the girls race was Tamzin L and the boys race was won by Luca A (after and incredible battle with his twin brother Nico).

After both races had finished, the finishing positions for each house were added up, with the lowest aggregate score being the winner. This year’s winners were Wilberforce house, closely followed by Sullivan (Morley 3rd and Johnson 4th).

We really do have some strong runners in Y56 at the moment and fancy our chances at the upcoming inter-school competition.

Well done children!

Hull FC Foundation begin sporting partnership

This half term we are very please to have Callum from Hull FC coming in to deliver rugby coaching to staff and children in Y6. So far the sessions have been going very well and children are really enjoying themselves. We hope this extra focus pays off in the upcoming competitions!

Y4 Sporting Heroes

Year 3 had a great time at the Hull FC Sky Try Inter School Tag Rugby competition. The children demonstrated great teamwork skills and sportsmanship and were a credit to our school.

We are proud to say that we won and would like to congratulate all the other schools which took part! A huge THANK-YOU to Rich and his team for arranging the event too!

Last night our sporting year got underway with our children making a fantastic start!

The first competition of the Autumn term was the boy’s touch rugby league championships. The children chosen have been working hard in PE lessons and are all currently attending our after school rugby club.

The boys played really well and came up against some tough competition. Losing their semi-final game 1-0 meant the boys went on to win their play-off game and managed to finish an excellent 3rd!

We are very proud of the boys and were thrilled to see them go home with medals from their first competition. Well done!
