Monkfrith Team Fixtures and Results
Barnet School Sports Reports
East Barnet Cup Quarter Finals Monkfrith Vs Martin –
On Tuesday 4th February our football team faced Martin School in the quarter final of the East Barnet cup. We knew they would be a challenging opposition, but we remained confident with our undefeated record. The first half proved tricky and was a very even match, with both teams showing skills and strong ability. Although the first half ended 2-1 to us, there was no predicting who was going to win. We had been defending a lot and our goalkeeper – Ezra – had made some crucial saves.
As we got into the second half, Martin received a penalty. They scored, but it was disallowed as the referee had not blown the whistle. Luckily for us, on the second attempt, they missed. From this moment, the game changed. We proceeded to score three more goals to win the match 5-1, which doesn’t reflect the strength of Martin’s football team. We are really proud of the team’s determination and confidence despite being up against a strong opponent. Bring on the semi-finals!
Year 5 & 6 Girls’ Football Tournament
On Thursday 30th January, our Year 5 and 6 girls football team attended the East Barnet tournament. We all had a great afternoon. The girls improved with every match they played. In the group stages, they unluckily lost their first match in the last 20 seconds but went on to win the next two matches. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to go through to the knock out stages but we were really proud to finish second in our group and win a few matches. What a great day out! Well done girls.
Football Dick Bailey Cup Match Vs Dollis
On Wednesday 29th January, our football team faced Dollis School in Round 3 of the Dick Bailey Cup. We started off slow and we weren’t playing the football we are used to seeing. Luckily this did not last long. Ten minutes in, we looked stronger and more confident on the ball. We started to pass the ball more and use combination play to get up the field. Dollis’s goalkeeper made some crucial saves for them through out the match but we did eventually manage to score two goals past him. The brothers got a goal each. Well deserved win boys. You never gave up. We’re through to the Quarter Finals!
Year 6 Football Tournament
On Thursday 16th January, the year 6 football team attended the East Barnet tournament. The team played some great football and made it through to the quarter finals, where they faced Akiva School. Unfortunately, we lost and Akiva went on to win the tournament.
Barnet Sportshall Athletics Champions
We are so proud to announce that our Sportshall team won the Barnet Sportshall Athletics and will now be representing Barnet at the London Games. What an achievement! Well done team Monkfrith.
Girls’ Football Cup Match V Hollickwood
On Thursday, the girls travelling to Hollickwood School for their first ever match as a team. They had a great start and they were in Hollickwood’s half most of the match. Unfortunately, we just couldn’t score. Alara and Ellie hit the crossbar. We were so close. Hollickwood managed to score three goals though so we lost 3-0.
Wow! What a first performance. We all thoroughly enjoyed seeing the girls having fun and playing together for the first time. They improved with every touch and their confidence just grew and grew. Well done girls.
Football Dick Bailey Cup Match V Foulds
On Tuesday we travelled to Old Elizabethans Cricket Club, to play in the Dick Bailey Cup 1st Round. We felt confident after our last win and played very well against and strong Foulds side. We were on fire though and scored the first three goals making it 3-0. This lead didn’t last long though and Foulds score two goals against us. Luckily we held on to the lead and it ended 3-2. 2nd Round here we come. They even wore odd sock for anti-bullying week.
Football Cup Match V Tudor
Well, what a start to the season! Our first match took place this week against Tudor School in the East Barnet School Cup. We started very well and scored two goals to make it 2-0. However, Tudor were very determined, and they scored two of their own goals before half time (2-2). We were disappointed to lose the lead, but we knew we could strike back. In the second half Tudor scored another great goal and we were then losing 2-3. We were running out of time. There were only 6 minutes left! We did not give up. Chances after chance but they were just not going into the goal.
The determination paid off though and we were 3-3. Once that goal went in, we had the belief that we could win. We managed to score not one but three more. Final score was 6-3. Well done boys. You did it in the end. A special well done to Tom who was voted player’s player – he did score 4 goals!
Cross Country Meet 1
Monkfrith travelled to Copthall Playing Fields to compete in the Barnet Cross Country run. There were over 38 schools competing this year. This means some races had over 78 children running for their age group. We were very proud of our team, who did their best and represented our school with pride and determination. Congratulations to you all. Fantastic running from all who took part. A particular well done to Poshia who finished 8th, Timo who finished 6th and Charlotte and Jack who both came 2nd in their age groups.
We look forward to the next meet in February.
KS1 Movement Festival
Before Autumn half term, we took ten of the Year 2s to the Barnet KS1 Movement Festival. They had an amazing time exploring 8 different activities, helping them to develop their fundamental movement skills and extend their agility, balance and coordination. These included: skipping, parachute games, dance routines, balancing, rolling, jumping on spring boards, coordinating their way through different obstacles and following instructions. They were a pleasure to take out and very well behaved.
