ADVENTURE IN ALEXANDRA PARK ACTIVITY DAY

The children in Year 5 took part in a fun and action packed adventure day in Oldham's award winning Alexandra Park on Thursday 30th June 2016. The children worked in teams of 8 to enjoy all the activities over the day with a competitive team building spirit.

Sports Participation: Football Friendly

On Tuesday 28th June, Clarksfield Year 5 and 6 boys travelled to Freehold Community School for a football match.  Awais put Clarksfield in front midway through the first half.  As the game went it looked like they were comfortable, however with the last kick of the game Freehold equalised in the heavy rain denying our boys the win resulting in the game finishing at 1-1.

Sports Participation: East Oldham Schools Cricket Tournament

On the 28th June a mixed cricket team from Year 5 and 6 were one of 5 teams who travelled to Hollinwood Cricket Club for the East Oldham Cricket League.  First up was a win against Mayfield after a great batting performance from Taki took the score beyond the opposition’s reach.  In their second game they beat Alexandra Park by 10 runs with an excellent all-round team performance with everyone playing their part with bat, ball and in the field.  With 2 wins out of 2 there was no need for the third game and Clarksfield were declared CHAMPIONS!!!

Sports Participation: Oldham School Cricket Tournament

Clarksfield’s Year 5 boys made it to the final of the 8 team Oldham Schools cricket tournament at Glodwick Cricket Club where they came up against Alexandra Park School. Clarksfield fielded first and bowled exceptionally, however after a couple of dropped catches and misfields Alexandra managed to set a target of 50. After a promising start from the opening pair scoring 19 the run chase slowed down due to some decent bowling from Alexandra.  The last pair came in needing 15 runs, however they could not hold their nerve losing 3 wickets (-15runs) and finishing well short on 27.

MAYFIELD 1 CLARKSFIELD 0

CLARKSFIELD 3 ST EDWARDS 2

CLARKSFIELD 2 WATERSHEDDINGS 2

CLARKSFIELD 2 ST THOMAS MOORSIDE 0

HODGE CLOUGH 2  CLARKSFIELD  0

BROADFIELD 8  CLARKSFIELD 0

 

Basketball team bow out of tournament despite a very encouraging showing.  The only major blimp was the defeat against a strong Broadfield side who seemed to hit every basket they shot.  Besides that the Clarksfield team where very competitive as the results suggest and unlucky not to win 3 more.  After a tough setback against Mayfield in which a questionable call was made against the team, the team improved with wins against St Edwards and St Thomas Moorside, drawing through a late Watersheddings basket and comprehensively dominating the Hodge Clough game until Hodge Clough scored on a rare attack forward.  All in all with a relatively young side predominately made up of Year 5's there is potential to go far in next years tournament.  Well done to all students who took part.

Team: Walid, Esah, Moin, Aatika, Abdullah, Sibgha, Taqi

GREENACRES   3  CLARKSFIELD   1

FOOTBALL TEAM LOSE TO STRONG GREENACRES TEAM

 

The school football team travelling the short distance to Greenacres to play a game.  After a dull goalless first half the game lived up in the second half as Greenacres raced into a 2 goal before Taqi's outstanding goal from the halfway line however the comeback was short lived as Greenacres scored late on to put the game out of our reach.  A mixture of individual errors and good play where the downfall in this game and is something we must improve on in the future.

Team: Taqi, Esah, Noman, Walid, Ahsan, Huzaifa, Shanif, Sufiyan

CROSS COUNTRY TEAM COMPETE IN THE EMERGING SCHOOLS COMPETITION

 

Our cross country team went to Stoneleigh park to compete in an emerging schools competition, although up against much stronger opposition Shahruk was the best placed Clarksfield athlete but he was well down the field mid pack.  Here is a couple of accounts from students who took part.

"I started near the front of the line. As the race began, I found myself in 3rd place.  As I ran up the hill, I began to lose my breathe and became very tired.  I couldn’t run anymore and started to slow down.  I tried to save some of my energy by running slowly. Then I began to run faster as I came near the finishing line.  At the end, I ended up walking, I came in 26th place but I tried my best." Aminah 

 

"At the start, it was really difficult because we had to run down the hill. I started near the front of the line but as soon as I went up the hill, I found myself near the back of the group of runners.  The longer the race went on, the further behind I found myself.  I was running slowly near the end.  It was very tough and I finished in 36th place.  I was very proud of myself and very tired!" Simrah

CLARKSFIELD   4   GREENACRES   2

CLARKSFIELD CLAIM WIN IN FIERCELY CONTESTED GAME

 

Year 5 & 6 boys started off their football campaign with a convincing 4-2 win against Greenacres in a home friendly.  Taking the lead early through Ayaan, the delivery from set pieces from Subhan caused problems for the visitors throughout as 2 other goals came from such situations.  Greenacres were never in the game and only made the scoreline respectable with a late consolation.  The Year 5 boys now head to Waterhead Academy next Thursday in the Boy's Football Tournament looking to continue their good start to the year.  Well done to all that took part.

Squad: Yousuf, Walid, Noman, Subhan, Sufiyan, Ayaan, Ummar, Taqi, Adil, Ahsan
