Year 5 and 6 Football



The Year 5 and 6 football team kicked off their pre-season with a very convincing 3-0 win over Hillborough Junior School. The St Matthew’s team looked very energetic and very confident with the ball considering they have only had one training session since June.

Hillborough had some very good chances in the game but the St Matthew’s midfield duo of Dimitrius and Shakeel controlled the game, skipping past many of the opposing players. Josh, the centre forward, tried his luck with a few tricks that set him through on goal. Throughout the game, Lemar, Theo, Ismaeel and Nadeem all played a key role in defence, keeping out Hillborough on their counter attacks.

Shakeel opened the scoring with a solo effort, knocking the ball over a player, controlling it and striking on the half volley to lob the keeper from the half way line. From this point on, St Matthew’s grew in confidence and kept the ball for the best part of the half.

Dimitrius, who looked composed on the ball, added to the scoring after linking up with Shakeel, Jermaine and Cory in a perfect one-touch pass and move.

Moments before the end of the game, Josh and Dimitrius linked up well in the final third where Dimitrius was brought down unfairly. Dimitruis coolly stepped up to score his second of the game by slotting in the bottom corner.

Man of the Match: Dimitruis for his two fantastic goals and great creativity throughout the game!

Everyone involved in the match played their part in a fantastic win for St Matthew’s!

Music Lessons

Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 enjoyed a concert performance today from an octet of members of the Luton Music Service teaching team. They played a range of musical pieces and explained a little about the instruments, which included the violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, guitar and drums.

Apart from the enjoyment of listening to skilled musicians playing live, the purpose of the performance was to hopefully inspire as many children as possible to sign up for weekly musical instrument lessons in school.

The children were all given a letter explaining the service to take home to their parents. The letter also provided information about a Come And Try Workshop which is being held this Saturday 13 September at Icknield High School.

Children, accompanied by a parent or carer, can go along at any time between 9.30am and 12.30pm to try out any of the instruments that are available.
