Coleridge Girls’ Football Team continued their successful season, reaching the semi -finals of the Haringey Tournament and thus qualifying for the play offs to represent the Borough in the London Youth Games.
Storming through the group stages, scoring 16 goals in 5 games whilst once again conceding none, the team came up against St Gilda’s in the quarter finals.
A solid 2-0 victory led to a semi-finals match against St. Mary’s, which Coleridge dominated, but could not find that elusive goal. Going to penalties, the team lost 3-2, the conceded goal the only time goalkeeper Manon touched the ball in the match.
Despite an outstanding team performance and loosing only one of their five matches by the single goal, the boys were unlucky to progress beyond the group stages.

Coleridge girls emerged victorious in the Highgate Wood Primary Schools Six-a-Side Football Tournament, winning all their games, scoring 11 goals whilst conceding none. Indeed the defence was so strong that goalkeeper Manon was almost a spectator, only touching the ball twice throughout the tournament. Special mention must be made of Chloe and Nancy from Year 4, playing in their first matches representing the school, competing against girls up to two years older than themselves.
The Coleridge Boys B team won their first three games scoring nine goals while also conceding none. However having to play their last two games consecutively, the scorching heat became too much for them and they conceded the only goal of the match against Campsbourne, picking up the silver medal.
Despite valiant individual performances, the Boys A team experienced two narrow losses to other schools before a victory against Rokesly.
Congratulations to all those who took part and we look forward to more success in the Haringey Tournament.

To begin their topic on Scavengers and Settlers Year 4 went on a trip to Queens and Highgate Woods. The children completed a series of interactive activities and thought about how life might have been different for our ancestors. We began by building shelters (as our nomadic hunter forefathers would have) and then focused on what they might have done for entertainment and how they communicated with one another. The children had a great time and thrived during the practical activities. Year 4 plan to return to the woods to explore further outdoor learning opportunities throughout the coming year. You can see pictures of the children at work on their fantastic shelters in the slideshow below.
