March 2022 - Girls Federation Football Team
Winners of the Shelley Pyramid Cup

Huge CONGRATULATIONS to our all girl Federation Football Team for a superb team effort in the recent Shelley Pyramid sports event at 5core. The girls showed real team spirit, lots of determination, strength and support. The team won all of their matches and only conceded 2 goals. It was a brilliant display of true team spirit, with the girls changing positions and taking turns at goal keeping whilst they were cheered on and given much support by some very proud parents too.

Well done Girls. Let’s hope this is the start of some amazing girls footballing talent 
moving forward.

Inspiring Assembly 

Andy Morris from Shelley College led our assembly along with Shelley College student, Kayli Howitt. The focus was about inspiring girls to become more involved in sporting activities, although, all the pupils felt more inspired after his assembly! 

In her spare time, Kayli is a keen gymnast and regularly competes in high level competitions. Mr Morris and Kayli explained to the children how everyone can find a sport that they enjoy and if you practise you will always improve. 

Children were told about events that take place within the area that they can become involved in, as well as other opportunities that will be coming up. 

Kayli. a current pupil at Shelley College shared her story about the different sporting activities and hobbies that she has and still does enjoy.

KS2 Boys Football

To describe Tuesday’s football as ‘muddy’ is an understatement. That didn't deter the children from playing some blinding football. Class 2 had some superb matches and the level of the football this year was very high from all the schools across the Kirkburton Pyramid. Well done to all the children who took part—we are immensely proud of you. 

Year 2 enjoyed a morning of multi-skills sports at Shelley College.
