Level 2 Football
A record number of 36 children from years 5 and 6 represented the school in the annual level 2 football tournament at Stanley Park on Wednesday.
On an unexpectedly warm afternoon, there was plenty of high quality football, all played in a positive spirit by the 4 Monkton Park teams.
We were delighted to be able to field a girls team for the first time, and they battled hard to reach the final of their competition, where they were eventually defeated by Redland. Elsewhere, our mixed year 5/6 team missed out on a place in the final by just one goal, while our two other teams showed great battling qualities before being eliminated.
Thanks to the Sheldon 6th formers for helping with the coaching of our teams, and to Mrs Porter for organising the event.
