On Thursday 25th October exactly 13 girls from Clydach Primary School went to Play Football to play a couple of matches against other schools.
All the girls came to school in their football kits so that they were ready and they didn't need to change except from putting the school jerseys on. After the girls put the jerseys on they grabbed their bags and left.
At approximately 10:30 the girls were already on the minibus. It took around 10 minutes to get there said a Year 6 named Emma. When they got there they went to the main hall where all the other teams were.
Next Mr Bevan and Mrs Ware spilt them up into teams. There were six on one team and seven on the other. "Before long they went to warm up on pitch one." said Lara Mason.
After the girls got warmed up the they got ready to play their first matches; one team was on pitch one and the other team was on pitch three. The team that was on pitch three were against Sketty and they won! The score was 0-2.
It was a great day and everyone enjoyed the football. For most of us it was the first time we had played a competitive game against other schools. We have another tournament in November so watch this space.
On Wednesday the 17th of October, 6 girls and 6 boys from Clydach Primary School went to Coed Gwillyn park to take part in a cross-country race. When we got there we warmed up. We competed against lots of girls and the boys competed against lots of boys.
The boy's went first while the girl's had a rest and cheered for the boys. The boys ran all the way around the whole park; they said there legs were like jelly. Max Evan came 8 out of 60 boys and Alfie James came 31st out of 60 boys even though he was pushed and fell in the forest.
The girls went after the boys while the boy's had a rest and there were 60 girls. Amber came 22 out of 60 girls and Amelia came 23 out of 60 girls as well.
After the girls race someone from Clydach primary school called Paige came down on her bike with sweets and we all said "Yummy thanks Paige." She was really kind to us and we needed the extra energy.
The next race is after Christmas so we will train by running laps around the yard.
