These four keen Year 2 runner beans enjoyed the KS1 Cross Country at York High School.
They were supportive of each other, listened carefully to the instructions and rules, and prepared well for the competition. They didn't place in the boys' or girls' races but were an absolute credit to the school.
Thank you for taking part Henry, Nate, Sofia and Zuza!
Our team of four were well prepared and enjoyed this well structured tournament. They each got to play four singles matches and we came 2nd in the first round out of ourselves, Dringhouses and St Aelred’s, with St. Aelred’a going through in top position to the final round.
In our final round we played Rufforth and St Wilfrid’s.
Amelia managed a win against tricky opponents and Amelie used her own racket to serve consistently. Seb returned well and played very sportingly. Daniel got a couple of wins, mainly due to serving some aces.
Well done to all, a great afternoon in windy conditions.
County Cricket Final
Our Year 3/4 cricket team qualified for the County Final earlier in the year. After the tournament was rained off twice, we finally got a beautiful day to play at Knaresborough Cricket Club. The team got off to a good start with some excellent batting and bowling but lost their first game against Nawton 282-256. The next game against Ings Farm saw our team get into their stride with a 155-146 win. We lost our 3rd game against Marton cum Grafton 178-143 but won our final game against St Joseph’s 172-164. Our results meant we finished 3rd in our group which we were delighted with. This is the first heat a Scarcroft Cricket Team have ever got and we look forward to playing in the Year 5/6 tournament next year.
County Cricket Final
Year 3/4 Cricket Tournament
A team of Year 4 pupils represented the school at the York (West) Schools’ Cricket Tournament. They got off to a fantastic start against St Paul’s Primary School with a win and followed this with a great win against Our Lady Queen of Martyrs. They worked fantastically as a team and all pupils put in a great performance with lots of wickets and fours!
Their two wins meant they qualified for the semi-final against Archbishop of York Junior School. Again, the team put in a fantastic performance getting lots of players out and gaining a great amount of runs which finished at a total of 273 to AYJS’ 208. This meant that the team then qualified for the final.
The final was played against Rufforth Primary School. It was a close game with lots of nerves from staff and parents in the sideline but the team won 230 runs to 195.
It was a fantastic day which ended with a brilliant 1st place. We look forward to competing in the County Finals later in the year.
Year 5/6 Cricket Tournament
Our Year 5/6 Cricket Team were in great form at the annual York (West) Cricket Tournament. They lost their first game against St Paul’s but won their second match against Our Lady Queen of Martyr’s with the team catching 7 balls to get 7 players out. They worked brilliantly as a team but unfortunately did not make it through to the semi-final as it came down to runs!
Well done to all those who took part.
This fantastic event at York Sport involved a swim, a bike ride and a run. The children all tried really hard, listening carefully to the instructions and doing really well in their transitions. Luckily it was a hot day and we soon dried off after the swimming during our outdoor picnic.
Most of the team enjoyed the swimming best and found the cycling the hardest, but everyone received a medal and should be proud to be part of such a great event.
Peter Feasby Hockey Tournament
The annual Peter Feasby Hockey Tournament took place on 27th March at Vale of York Academy. Scarcroft were able to enter 3 teams and there was much excitement on the night with so many pupils there supporting each other.
Scarcroft 3 showed great tenacity. Despite losing their 3 games, they didn't give up and worked better as a team with each performance. Special mentions go to Skylar Fox-Gillett, Eleanor Tummons and Ida Mason in this team who worked their socks off!
Scarcroft 2 were in a very close group and played some very exciting matches. They drew 2 games and unfortunately lost their final game. They finished 4th in their group. Special mentions go to Jasmine Hirst who was incredible in defence and Arthur Kay for never stopping!
Our Scarcroft 1 team won one, drew one and lost one resulting in a 3rd place finish in their group. Special mentions go to Charlie Taylor and Ellie Scrase for bossing it in defence, Will Muskett for superb tackling and Poppy Kay for bouncing back after her 3rd Scarcroft Hockey Tournament injury!
Well done to all teams. It was a great night of hockey.
Tuesday 26th March saw 5 of our KS2 pupils represent York in the North Yorkshire Cross Country Final at Dalby Forest having qualified in Autumn Term. The pupils had a great time despite the cold weather! Two of our pupils were returning for their final time in Year 6 and 3 pupils were representing York for the first time. Whether returning or debuting, it is a great achievement to represent the city.
Results on the day:
Y3 Boys: Alex Morris - 37th
Y4 Boys: Tristan Ferraioli - 63rd
Y4 Girls: Eve Marshall - 30th
Y6 Girls: Minori Shimoji - 47th
Y6 Girls: Jasmine Liang Wallis - 43rd
Well done to all pupils taking part.
On Wednesday 13th March two teams of Year 5/6 pupils were in action at Energise Sports Centre. The tournament was a development tournament which allows pupils who have not represented the school in a sport so far this year, the opportunity to do so in a fun and friendly tournament. Street basketball is played which means that both teams are shooting in one hoop resulting in high energy matches.
The pupils really enjoyed representing their school and got better as the tournament progressed with their teamwork and ability. Thomas Baynes was great at using space and calling for the ball and Leila Elliff got stuck in as soon as the whistle went! A very enjoyable tournament.
Six girls and two boys took part in the recent KS1 Gymnastics competition at Manor School.
Everyone tool part in the three separate events: floor routine, vault and body management.
Harry and Kitty both got high scores on the vault, landing confidently, whilst Poppy and Zoe's hard work practising the floor routine paid off.
Elliott impressed in all three events, showing good extension and Anna and Ella's knowledge of technical terminology helped them to perfect the different sequences. Esther watched carefully and adapted her moves to the space, gaining good scores.
The team came second with an overall score of 104.5, beaten by Poppleton Road with 109.
Well done to the whole team for practising so hard and for putting in their best effort despite nerves on the day. Thank you to the families for being fantastic supporters.
