This term the Year 2 boys are learning all about mini-beasts. They are thoroughly enjoying this topic.
The boys were set the task to make a mini-beast habitat for homework. Some of the habitats have real creepy crawlies in them! The boys are a very able and creative class and they always put 100% into the tasks set for them, along with the amazing support from their parents.
Well done Year 2.
The Year 7 football team continued their excellent progress against Dame Allan's.
Particular highlights of the game were the whole team’s work rate and how everyone was always looking to move the ball into space. NSB controlled the early stages of the game, having a number of dangerous attacks from both wings but could not find the final ball to break the deadlock. The deadlock was eventually broken through a fantastic long range effort from Yazin A. It stayed 1-0 at half time with Marni E having very little to do, which was mainly down to the excellent defensive work from Hamish A, Faraz I and Oliver P.
NSB continued to dominate in the second half and had a number of chances to extend their lead but were wasteful in front of goal. In the final stages of the game, NSB were awarded a penalty after a Dame Allan’s defender handled the ball in the area, and Alrifaiey calmly stepped up to make it 2-0.
The game finished 2-0 and the standard of performance from the boys shows how much progress the whole team is making.
The Year 7 football team got their league campaign underway against Walker. NSB started the game well and opened the scoring through Joseph T after forcing a mistake in Walker's defence. Walker responded well scoring two goals, one from the penalty spot and another from long range. NSB levelled the scores just before half time after Nicholas S' cross ended up lobbing Walker’s goal keeper into the back of the net.
After half time, Walker started the better of the two sides and scored a quick fire double to make the score 4-2. NSB’s response to falling behind again was excellent, they didn’t panic and played some excellent passing football. Their excellent play was rewarded in the final stages of the game with further goals from Sykes and Taylor making the final score 4-4.
The boys showed real resilience coming from behind twice in the game to rescue a point. Well done the whole team.
