Level 2 School Games Competition

Year 4 Indoor Cricket

The final tournament this month for the year 4’s was the indoor cricket, in which 8 of our best cricketers represented the school. They did exceptionally well winning all of their group matches making it to the semi finals. After a great battle against Rainhill St Ann’s in the final Bleak Hill just fell short. However a consolation prize through placing in the top 2 the team now goes on to represent St. Helens at the Merseyside school games joining the long list of Bleak hill Teams at the event later on in the summer.

Year 4 Everton Festival

On Thursday 20th April the year 4 football team went out and represented Bleak Hill at Ruskin Drive. The two captains were Jacob and Jessica. Altogether they played 7 matches, won 5 of them and lost 2. They played the 3rd and 4th play off and won so overall finished 3rd. Well done Year 4 (Liam & Finlay Y6)

Year 4 Mini Tennis

Notably one of Bleak Hill strongest performances this term came in the Y4 tennis tournament held at Broadway Leisure centre. Bleak Hill entered and A and B team into the event and were placed in opposite groups of which Bleak Hill A won their group and Bleak Hill B qualified as the best runner up. Fortunately the 2 teams didn’t meet in the semi-finals and both won their matches. Which meant going into the finals both teams were over the moon with the fact that they had both qualified for the county finals. This didn’t stop both teams displaying the best level of tennis in the final with both teams leaving nothing in the tank. However there could only be one winner and this time it was Bleak Hill A that lifted the trophy leaving Bleak Hill B as the runners up. It was very encouraging to see that all players in both teams got better and better every game they played massive well done to you all. Now on to the county finals!

KS1 Multiskills

On Friday 21st April Year 2 went to Lansbury Bridge to take part in a multi skills event. All the children had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed for what was for some of the children their first time competing for the school. Considering this the team did so well finishing 4th just missing out on a bronze medal as the 3rd place school also had the same points however they had won more stations than Bleak Hill. Hopefully there will be a lot more for the team to take part in when they move into KS2 next year, well done everyone.

Y6 Hockey

For the year 6 hockey tournament held at De La Salle high school Bleak Hill showed up in force having not only an A and a B team but a C team as well. Bleak Hill displayed some of the highest levels of skill and agility throughout the whole tournament which was evident when the A & B team met in the semi-finals unfortunately the way the groups fell meant only one could progress through to the final and take 1 of 2 county finals spots. On this occasion Bleak Hill A won the semi-final and then went onto the lift the trophy beating St Aidan’s in the final. Although the B team fought valiantly in the 3 v 4 playoff they just fell short of taking home the bronze medal. A massive congratulations to all the teams for representing the school so well.
