Year 5/6 Basketball
Congratulations to the school basketball team for such a fantastic and consistent effort in this tournament. The squad were unbeaten in all of their qualifying games. They were faced with strong opposition in the quarter finals but played with organisation and superb team work and were therefore victorious and progressed to the semi finals. Unfortunately, in the semi finals they were narrowly beaten and knocked out of the competition by strong opponents who scored the winning basket with just 7 seconds left on the clock! They demonstrated an outstanding display of effort, team work and attitude throughout the whole competition. Well done!

Year 5 EFC FUN Festival
The team consisting of six year 5 and two year4 boys showed fantastic character in progressing all the way to the finals. After a nail biting semi final penalty shoot out, the boys were unfortunately narrowly beaten in the final with just one single goal determining the winners. The boys were extremely unlucky in not progressing to the next round of the competition at Finch Farm although gave a great team performance on the day. Well done gentlemen!
Year 5/6 New Directions and EFC in the Community Basketball Competition
After our semi final success in the Knowsley Primary Basketball we entered another competition involving schools from all across Liverpool. Again the squad displayed superb defensive team work conceding only a few baskets until the semi final stages. There were some fantastic individual performances and some great baskets scored enabling us to qualify to the semi final stages again. Unfortunately, we were again knocked out by a very thorough and talented team that went on to win the competition. Our squad is definitely developing and becoming more confident. Hopefully e will make it to the final stages in our next competition.
Knowsley Primary Swimming Gala
The squad consisting of 15 boys and girls from years 3-6 competed in a range of individual and team races at the gala.

However, the squad performed fantastically and was successful in qualifying for the finals in the following events:
- Year 3/4 Boys 25m Front Crawl
- Year 3/4 Girls 25m Breast Stroke
- Year 5/6 Girls 25m Breast Stroke
- Year 3/4 Boys 25m Butterfly
- Year 3/4 Boys Freestyle Relay
Congratulations and well done to all the squad!
