Lengthy and eventful football update for all friends, family and followers. The boys played a hard fought match last Wednesday against Mrs. Cador's former school Wybunbury. The game was all square 0-0 at half time but in the 2nd half the luck was with us and we managed to score 3 goals through James, Will and Jack. Excellent effort from all the players! Final score 3-0.

Last Friday we played another match, this time away against Berkeley. They started quickly and were 2 goals up within 5 mins. Things only got worse for us as another goal went in before half time. In the 2nd half there were many tired bodies (partly due to our post SATs celebrations) and Berkeley took further advantage of our mistakes to score 4 more goals. The final score ended 7-0, a sore defeat for us and one we needed to bounce back from if we were going to stand a chance of going through to the next round.

Yesterday we played our final group match away to Weston knowing only victory would keep us in the competition. Unfortunately we got off to another slow start and were 1-0 down to a long ball goal. We responded positively and tried to fight back however our chances just wouldn't go in. Weston then managed to hit us on the counter attack and double their lead. We went into the 2nd half down 2-0 but feeling positive about our effort and overall performance. 5 mins into the 2nd half and we managed to pull a goal back through Arron. This proved only to be a consolation goal and in our efforts to score an equaliser , Weston scored another counter attack goal to seal victory for themselves. Final score was 3-1 to Weston however the overall effort and attitude shown by all the players was fantastic and an absolute pleasure to watch from the sidelines. Hard luck team, give yourselves a big pat on the back for the effort you've put in these past 3 weeks and thank you again to all parents, Mr. McLean and supporters for helping with transport and supporting from the sideline!

Base 2 had a very messy week last week! Some mischievous elephants had jumped from their book and entered our classroom to have their breakfast. They made such a mess whilst having their breakfast. there were toys all over the place, spilt breakfast cereal, teabags thrown across the table and plates turned upside down! We decided we must describe the mess so that people would know how much mess...
