Cross-Country at Cardinal Heenan 27.11.17 Results
Mr Cooke and I brought 6 teams of Farfield cross-country runners to a huge event at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School last Monday, with at least 20 schools, and over 800 children taking part. The races were split into year groups for YR4, 5 & 6, with separate races for both the boys and the girls.
Overall we had a fantastic afternoon and I’m so proud of how well everyone ran, on what was an incredibly busy day, with well over 100 competitors in even the smallest races, and quite a hilly and slippery course!
In terms of results, we also did brilliantly, with 5 of our 6 teams qualifying for the Leeds Schools Cross-Country Finals on Wednesday 21st February at Temple Newsam. The top 8 teams from each race qualified for the finals and our results were as follows…
YR4 Boys – 1st
YR4 Girls – 5th
YR5 Boys – 5th
YR5 Girls – 4th
YR6 Girls – 6th
Unfortunately, our YR6 Boys team didn’t qualify for the finals, but in the biggest race of the afternoon, with approaching 200 competitors, they certainly gave a valiant effort!
Special mention must also go to Pareen of 4K who placed 9th in his race, enabling him to qualify for the finals in his own right as well.
Well done again to all runners, our strength in depth shows that we’re certainly a cross-country school to be reckoned with! With another couple of months of practising, I’m hopeful that we can put in a great performance at the Leeds finals and qualify for the West Yorkshire finals beyond that.

These were big races, with some having well over 100 runners. THe starts were exciting!

This competition for YR6 was a great event and I think all the children had a brilliant time. We were phenomenal in the races, coming 1st or 2nd in 10 of the 12 races. However, we had mixed success in our field events with some stand-out individual performances but just not quite enough strength in depth to earn us the top spot required to progress to the next round. Ultimately we came a close 2nd place of the 5 teams present, with Bramley St Peter’s pipping us to 1st place.
A huge congratulations to all of the children involved and I’m incredibly proud of the strong teamwork and athleticism we showed throughout the event. Thanks also to Miss Dobson for accompanying us, and to all the parents for supporting their children to take part.”
21 children represented the school at a cross country event at Middleton Park on the morning of Saturday 4th November. There were 4 primary school races and we needed 4 competitors to make a team. This was the first time that we had entered this event for many years, and the competition was fierce. We were proud of our children’s efforts, especially as our runners were predominantly Y3 and Y5, running against older peers.
We came 9th of 12 teams in U9 boys (though 20 schools took part; 8 must not have had full teams), 13th of 15 teams in U11 boys (of 23 schools) and 7th of 10 teams in the U11 girls (from 22 schools).
There were about 100 children in each race and it was quite an experience. We are looking forward to more races later in the year. Many thanks to Mr Little for organising the team, attending the morning and leading running across the school.

A message from manager Mrs Harding: “To say that the girls had never played together before, they did incredibly well. It was a very close game but the girls never gave up, which clearly shows in the score. Thank you to Mr Beevers for being a great ref and to all the supporters who came to cheers the girls on. Well done girls!”

Alice was second in the girls competition in a competition with other schools at The Depot.
A group of Year 6 children took part in a cheerleading competition at Ruth Gorse Academy. The event, organised by White Rose Cheer, involved the children performing a routine that they had learned at school as part of their Tuesday PE module. The team, consisting of 21 children, had only 10 minutes to rehearse their routine before competing against 8 other schools.
After the competition, the children took part in a carousel of activities led by the coaches from White Rose Cheer whilst the judges compiled their results. The final results were given and we were delighted to come third in the competition and receive 21 shiny bronze medals. A big well done to all the children.
U11 City 6-a-side football finals at Leeds Utd Thorp Arch training ground
Horsforth Newlaithes 0-4 Farfield (Ben x 3, Keanush)
Westerton 2-1 Farfield (Ben)
Boston St Mary’s 1-0 Farfield
Immaculate Heart 4 – 1 Farfield (Keanush)
The ten best U11 6-a-side teams met in finals at Thorp Arch. We started in blistering fashion, thrashing one of the pre-tournament favourites (and eventual semi-finalists) Newlaithes 4-0. In the next two games, a few ‘soft’ goals left us chasing the games and the post and bar denied us against Boston. In the final game, I think the boys’ heads went down knowing we couldn’t proceed to the semis. Nevertheless, we did well to qualify for the finals and played some great football. Well done boys!
