A lightning fast start saw Robertswood storm into a 3-0 lead with goals from Nik, Joe and Adam with St Mary's struggling to deal with Robertswood tactics. As the half wore on, they began to get a foothold in the game and we were disappointed to concede just before half time to end the first half 3-1 up.
The focus in the second half was defending the lead which the boys did with great desire, however, with energy levels dropping after such an intense start, we concede 2 late goals to end the game 3-3. This meant extra time, another 10 minutes of football.
Again, the boys came out with desire to get a goal, but were hit with a sucker punch on the counter to concede and make it 3-4. Despite the very best efforts of the Robertswood team, we were unable to force and equaliser and send the match to penalties.
A heartbreaking way to lose after such a determined, positive and resilient performance. We are all so proud of the team and all they have achieved this year.
It was fantastic to see so many children get dressed up for this year's themed World Book day. Different words really got people thinking about costumes and created a real buzz on the playground. Who would have imagined a 'saucepan' playing with a Harry Potter ('magical')? 'It's why we come to work', commented one staff member perhaps reflecting on the buzz and excitement created by words.
And we’re back to normal.
Respect Tokens counted after our first assembly in the hall since Friday 20th March 2020. It was good to see so many smiling faces (children and adults) as we get back to doing things as a whole school. For some children, it was their first ever time in the hall but now we’re in, there’s no stopping us as we will be back for lunch and P.E. later.
