Year 2 Football Festival
On Thursday 19th January, eight Year 2 footballers were chosen to represent Springdale First School in a fun football festival at Springdale. This was a wonderful experience for the children to take part in what was not only their first football game, but also their first trip outside of school.
While the weather started off icy in the morning, the sun soon came out for when the games began. The children got the chance to play 5 different games against other schools. Throughout each game, the continued to show improvement and ended up drawing their second last game 1-1 (We scored a goal!).
I was so impressed with the children's attitude to playing because it can be very hard to remain positive when losing all of your games, sometimes by a hefty margin. All of them played with great enthusiasm and came off the field after the final game with smiles of their faces.
Thank you to all the parents who came and supported, you should be equally proud of them and hopefully in the future, we can attend another tournament with more positive results. Well done Springdale!
