Year 3 and 4 Football Tournament


On Wednesday 7th March 2018 the Year 3 and 4 football team went to Tyntesfield Primary School. All together we played 5 matches and came third!

In the first game, against St Mary's we lost 2-0 but then in the second game, against Woodheys, we won 1-0. Then we beat Tyntesfield 2-1 and made it to the semi-finals! We lost that one but won the third/fourth play-off game in a thrilling match.

Matthew was a great striker and he was also good at tackling. Rubi was also great at tackling, she could tackle people much taller than her. Xenon was a great goalie: he saved a goal using his chin, which is amazing!

MU Foundation Girls' Football Tournament

Manchester United Foundation Girl's Football Tournament


Match report written by Mia and Panna


On Thursday 18th January, the girls' football team had their very first tournament at The Cliff (Manchester United's old training ground). The nine girls, including us, Simon, Corey and Mrs Cooper all left at 9.10am and returned at 12.10pm.


Unfortunately, we lost the first game 0:1 but we didn't let it get us down. So, with that in mind, we came back and drew the second game 2:2 and we were so happy! The third game no-one scored and then we had a well-deserved break! We were so ready for the last game. We were that ready we won 3:0! YAY! We were overjoyed. We were very tired. So tired, we almost fell asleep in the mini-bus.



The sporting calendar this year is once again full with a wide range of sporting opportunities available to our pupils the Firs. We have before school archery clubs, Lunchtime football, Multi-Sports clubs, After school Taekwondo and Basketball clubs to name a few not to mention all the events that we are taking part in at Ashton-on-Mersey High School. We have been lucky enough to have been awarded the Gold Kitemark for school sport during the academic year 2015-16 and we are aiming to continue this success into the new academic year. This award reflects the enthusiasm our children have for their PE lessons, how many of them take advantage of our after school clubs, the success we have had at competitive sporting opportunities and the way the children embrace the opportunity to take on new sports led by visitors to our school. Well done everyone!


Firs journalists will be writing sports reports to showcase their sporting achievements throughout the year and build up an in depth account of all the fantastic sporting opportunities that we have here at The Firs. We will keep you updated through or website, Twitter page and newsletters.


We hope you enjoy.

Our year 3 tag rugby teams performed brilliantly at the Sale Sharks Rugby Festival in June. They put all their new skills into action and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship, teamwork and respect during the matches. See our twitter page for photos!


The year 5 and 6 basketball team enjoyed a very close match against Woodheys Primary School in May, losing by just one point. They put into practice all of the skills they've been learning in their PE lessons from our coach Mrs Craig and were led well by captain Kaios.


Our year 5 sports leaders did a brilliant job of organising, umpiring and scoring the year 1 & 2 kick rounders competition for our Ashton on Mersey primary schools cluster. The Firs kick rounders teams also performed brilliantly in this event, winning both of the A and B leagues. Have a look at our photos below. Well done everyone!



To round off an excellent year in sport, we held a sports day in May which gave all of the children the opportunity to compete in a range of athletic events. The children showed our their throwing, running and jumping skills in front of an audience of enthusiastic parents and carers!
The Firs once again enjoyed a successful evening at the Ashton on Mersey Sports Awards, with many of our children being rewarded for some fantastic sporting performances over the course of the year. Our year 4 dancers performed a fantastic routine to celebrate the carnival theme of the evening. Well done girls!
Spring Term '16
The spring term brings competitive sporting opportunities for year groups across both key stages, in sports ranging from basketball to indoor athletics. We are lucky enough to be competing in the finals of the Sale and Partington football tournament at Crossford Bridge, and we wish the boys' team continued success! With their first competitive opportunity approaching in March, we are hoping that the girls will follow in their footsteps.
The Firs spent Friday 18th March having fun and raising money for Sport Relief. Jess Smith (6JN) has given us an overview of the day...
The year 5&6 footballers finished off a fantastic season in style by qualifying for the Sale and Partington Finals Night at Crossford Bridge on March 10th, where they came third overall. Here they are modelling their new kit!
