Dick Bailey Quarter Final – Monkfrith V Akiva
On Tuesday the 2nd April, we were played Akiva in the Dick Bailey Cup -Quarter Final. This is a cup that goes against any size school in Barnet and we are really proud that we got to the Quarter Final.  We knew Akiva would be a very tough match but we felt positive. The first half was tough, as we expected and we defended most of the half. We worked so hard and blocked many shots. Avika did managed to get passed us twice though, making it 0-2 at half time. The second half was a different story. We attacked them much more but unfortunately we just couldn’t score, despite all our efforts and chances. It wasn’t our day and in the last minutes, Akiva got their third goal to finish the match. Super proud of Monfrith for their determination and never give up attitude. They did our school proud and I am super impressed with their progress as a team. Well done boys. 
Cross Country Meet 2
On Tuesday the 19th March, we attended the cross county meet 2, where twelve children from Year 4 to 6, not only competed for their own personal position but as a team they competed for point as a school. Well done to Tomini, Grace, Jean, Elliot, Charlotte, Ellie, Timo, Alex, Ece, Poshia, Dillon and Jack. They showed great determination and sportsmanship by encouraging and supporting each other. One child lost his shoes in the mud, picked them up and finished the race in his socks. One slipped over and ended with a cut lip. This resilience was great to see. We gained three medals. Jack and Charlotte were placed 2nd and Timo was placed 3rd out of 76 runners. 
Finally our scores were added together and out of 33 schools that entered the two cross country events, we came 10th.
This is an amazing achievement. We are very proud of them all. Well done. 
Thank you for the parents help and support. 
Year 4 Football Tournament
On Wednesday 20th March, we attended the Year 4 football tournament. We were lucky enough to enter two teams for this event, giving more children the chance to play football. One of the teams progressed to the semi finals, where they drew to take the match to penalties. Unfortunately, we lost on penalties, so played in the 3rd and 4th place match. The players played some great football but we just weren’t good enough on this occasion. I know the children were disappointed but we are super proud to say we were 4th out of 25 school that competed. Well done. 

Monkfrith V St John’s N11

On the 14th March, our football team played their final league match of the season. Despite the very muddy conditions, they didn’t let this effect their game. It was a great match to watch and they just get better every time we watch them. The end result was a very well deserved 5-0 win. 

A special mention to Zaid, who was voted players player for his determination and goal scoring ability on the day. Well done to all the boys: Jack, Sebastian, Zaid, Sofian Alex, Joe, Ned, Timo, Emre and Zac.

Thank you to everyone that came to support us at Livingstone school. We are waiting to hear if we have done enough to go through to the small schools finals, as we have won 3 matches and lost 1 – giving us 9 points in total. As it stands, there are currently two other school in a similar position, who have won 2 and lost 1 match. 

Year 5 Football Tournament

On the 6th March, Year 5’s football team took part in the Barnet annual football competition. 18 school from East Barnet were competing. They worked hard and played great football together. They won all the games in their group, which meant they progressed to the semi finals. Unfortunately, they faced Akiva (they ended up winning the tournament) and lost 2-0.  They then went into a 3rd/4th play-off against Livingstone. Our boys were 2-0 up with minutes to go, until Livingstone received a penalty, which made it 2-1. In the last 20 second, Livingstone scored another making it 2-2. This meant the game had to be decided through penalties. It was an extremely dramatic shoot out, which ended up with Ezra saving the 5th penalty and Zac having to step up for their penalty, if he scored they win bronze medals. Well of course he did. They won bronze! Congratulations to our team: Ezra, Alex, Emre, Timo, Ned, Zac and Joe. Miss Pierides was very proud of both the way they played and the way they conducted themselves. 

Year 6 Football Tournament

It was a pleasure taking the Year 6s to a football tournament. They worked well as a team, supported each other and won two out of four matches.

On Tuesday 12th February, Monkfrith travelled to Livingstone School to play on their grass pitch against Our Lady of Lourdes are our third league match. We knew it would be a tough match but we were positive and excited to play. We started well attacking their area but Our Lady of Lourdes also attacked us several times looking dangerous and strong. The first half ended 0-0. We started the second half very well and we looked good. Starting to pass the ball around more and creating numerous attacks. Eventually, our attempts created a well deserved goal and later that half a second. The score ended 2-0. Another well deserved win. 

All the boys worked hard but a special mention to Alex, Sebastian and Joe for playing another strong defensive performance. Zac, Timo and Ned for their constant attacking and recovery rans supporting the defence.

On the Tuesday 5th February, Monkfrith football team travelling to Finchley Powerleague to play against Holly Park in the East Barnet Cup. The players played some amazing football and attacked Holly Park’s goal many times but their defence and goal keeper kept saving their every efforts. despite their every efforts, Holly Park snuck in the winning goal in the last minutes of the game to win it 2-1. Super proud of our players determination and teamwork. It wasn’t to be our day. 

Year 5 and 6 Girls’ Football Tournament 

On Thursday, in the chilly weather 10 brave girls attended their football tournament. They don’t train together but they just enjoy playing. The first match was against a very experience team, who train and play matches weekly, so unfortunately we lost. The girls learned a lot from this match and took on board all the advice given. The second match was much more even and we scored our first goal. It was 1-0 up until the final seconds when the opponents scored to make in 1-1. We were super excited to draw though and our spirits were high. The match two matches were also very even and we drew them also. The parents and I were super impressed at how much they improved from match to match and we really enjoyed watching. 

Well done girls. 

Monkfrith V Whitings Hill

On the 21st December, Monkfrith football team played in the Dick Bailey Cup Round 2. We travelled to Whitings Hill and played on the astro pitch. It was a great match and possibly the most skilful side we have come up against this season but we played some amazing football. Monkfrith showed how they have really come together as a team and teamwork was really the key to this match. We had to defend very well and Jack (our goal keeper) had to make many crucial saves but our skills, combination play and determination proved best on the day. We won 4-1. Through to Round 3. Well done. We are so proud of you and we enjoy watching the way you play together more and more as a team. 

Keep it up.

On Tuesday 13th November, Monkfrith football team played in the Dock Bailey Cup against Brookland Junior School. We started a bit slow and our keeper Jack kept us in the match with some great saves. After half time, I saw the team that I know. They were move confident and moved the ball around effectively. We went 3 – 0 up and looked very comfortable. In the last minutes of the match Brookland were rewarded a penalty and the end score became 3-1.

Congratulations to Sebastian who was voted players player.

Monkfrith V St. Theresa’s

On Tuesday 16th October, it was a new season for Monkfrith football team. Our first match had arrived – Monkfrith V St. Theresa’s.

In the first three minutes the other team managed to claim the first goal to make it 0-1. Just a short time after our right winger Zaid had run down from the halfway line to get our first goal to make the score a fair 1-1. For the rest of the first half Sebastian managed to score but then the other team got two goals to get the score up to 3-3.

In the second half, we worked hard to score two more goals to make it 5-3. After that our luck changed and we couldn’t hold onto the lead. Sadly, the other team scored two more goals to make it even and then another making it 5-6. Despite our many attempts on goal and our determination we couldn’t score again.

Although we had a brilliant match, we were not able to claim the victory that we had wished for. It was a very promising first match and we are looking forward to our next one.

Alex – our defender was amazing. He saved us many times and even had an attempt on goal himself.

A special mention to Ned, who stepped into defence and tackled a very skilful Year 6 boy many times during the match. Even St Theresa’s teacher praised how well he played, and how shocked he was at how he kept up with his striker. A very well-deserved players player voted by his team mates.

Well done team! Let’s go into our next match positively. Thank you Miss Pierides and all the parents that helped us get there.

Congratulations to Ned who was voted players player.

Hi 5 Netball Tournament FINALS

On the 13th Feburary, Monkfrith Hi 5 team travelled to Hi 5 Netball Finals where the best 8 schools in Barnet competed. We came across very tough and experienced schools, which was why they were in the finals. We came 7th over all in Barnet, which we are very proud of and the team had a great experience and enjoyed every minute of it. 

Hi 5 Netball Tournament

On the 6th February, our Hi 5 Netball team, travelled to Copthall school to play in the annual Hi 5 East Barnet tournament. They were grouped with four other schools and played three group matches – drawing one and winning the other two. This got us enough points to win our group and progress into the semi-finals. This was a tough match against a very experience school, who beat us to go into the final. We then played for the bronze medal but unfortunately met our match and lost. 
Despite losing, we were 4th out of 18 East Barnet schools. This is a great achievement and we are very proud of the players. We never expected this. Being 4th, means that we are in the Barnet Schools’ Final next week to play the other top schools on the borough. Good luck team.
