Clore Shalom vs HJPS
It was 4:50 on a Wednesday evening, the sky was grey and gloomy and the ground was wet but that wasn’t going to stop Clore Shalom’s first netball match against their fierce rivals HJPS! The teachers came out full of enthusiasm wearing their super stylish new Clore netball team tops!
The first half was an intense battle, HJPS had the height advantage but what Clore lacked in verticality they made up for with determination, hard work and some added testosterone. People on both sides were getting very passionate and most people were having fun. Even though both teams were playing well, there weren’t many goals in the first half and scoring was only opened by HJPS just before the end of the half. Disaster, HJPS 1, Clore Shalom 0!
After a second half team talk telling everyone to slow/calm it down a bit and a slight tactical change, Clore were ready to go and determined to turn around the 1 goal deficit.
The second half was a little slower in places due to the fact this was everyone’s first game and in training we’d only managed 20 minutes! Our change of tactics worked well though adding more pace to our attack and it paid off with Mrs Cohen equalising only a short time into the half. We were back in the fight 1-1! It got better as a few minutes later and Mrs Cohen doubles her scoring to give Clore Shalom the lead 2-1 to Clore, we can do this! HJPS didn’t give up though and did manage to equalise making it 2-2 and set up an intense end to the game. With only about a minute left to play Clore Shalom worked the ball into a shooting position but it was Mrs Mesnick this time to shoot, she hadn’t scored yet in the game but she needed to now to win the game. With the pressure of the school’s pride firmly on her shoulders Mrs Mesnick lined herself up, took the shot, the ball flew through the air, hit the rim of the net…… AND DROPPED IN! 3-2 to Clore Shalom with only 30 seconds now left to go COME ON! All we had to do was hold on and defend well. Well 30 seconds later the final whistle blew and we had done it!
Everyone shook hands and we all had a great time playing winning was a nice bonus but whether we had won lost or drawn it was a lot of fun and that’s what matters!
But we still won! WOOO! Go Clore!
Year 4 Netball Tournament
On June 14th 2017 11 girls in year 4 went to Imanuel collage to play in the Maccabi netball tournament . There were nine schools including Akiva, Wolfson Hillel, Hertsmere, Kerem, Matilda Marks and Moriah. We had 2 teams and played a total of 10 games. In our first game we were all very nervous, unfortunately both teams lost.
As the afternoon went on we started to improve. For our third game we were against Hertsmere and we drew 1 -1. We scored the first goal. All matches were 5 minutes long. We played another few games where we had a mixture of losses and wins. Then our biggest game came up so Mrs Globe had to put our strongest team together because we were against Hertsmere and Mrs Cohen promised to have tea with us if we beat them. So we tried our hardest to beat them and we beat them 1- 0, all of us were cheering very loudly and hugging each other. We continued playing and started working well as a team – we had 2 teams although we all switched teams during the afternoon to make sure we all played the same amount of games. Overall our team 2 came 2nd (losing out by one point).
Year 5 and 6 Football Tournament
What an amazing time we had playing other teams and having fun.
Firstly we played Moriah but sadly we lost. After that we played Matilda Marks and we won 2-1. Our next game was against Sinai B and our last game was against Wolfsen Hillel – we lost 1-6 but one of their players plays for 2 football teams and trains 5 times a week!
Sadly we didn’t go through to the semi-finals but we all had fun. As it was a hot day we finished the afternoon with some cold water being splashed on us!

On Tuesday 16th May, Clore Shalom School took part in a tennis tournament. All of us tried our hardest to beat the other opponents. The schools that were against us were all from Hertfordshire and Watford. All of the schools were very good and all tried their hardest. Unfortunately we didn’t win but we came third and we were all very proud of ourselves considering we didn’t have much practice.
At the tournament we didn’t get upset even if we lost a game, we would shake hands with the person we played against. We had loads of fun and we really enjoyed playing and watching. We were lucky that we were not in the first round because we could watch everyone’s tactics.
We all want to thank Mr Murphy, Mr Conway and Mrs Globe for helping and taking us to the tournament, we had so much fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.
On Wednesday 10th May, the Year 4 football team took part in the Maccabi football tournament at Powerleague, Mill Hill.
We played well against Morasha B, Moriah B, Naima A, Wolfson Hillel B and Akiva B.
The 1st match was amazing, we won 2-0 against Morasha B then we won 2-1 against Naima A. We continued our lucky streak and won 1-0 against Wolfson Hillel and 2-0 against Akiva B. Sadly we lost our next game 2-0 against Moriah B.
We then headed back to pitch 5 to see if we got into the quarter final, we were shocked and excited that we had got through. This excitement didn’t last long as we lost 4-1 to Kerem B.
Thank you to Miss Goulding and Mrs Globe for arranging this fabulous event for all of the footballers – we had so much fun.
Well done to the Year 6 Netball team who represented our school at the Maccabi tournament this week. The girls won 3 out of 5 games and showed great team work and determination. Well done girls!
Well done to the Year 5 and Year 6 Girls footballers who represented our school, at the Maccabi football competition this week.
The Year 5 and Year 6 boys football team had a great time at the Maccabi Football tournament this week. The ‘A’ team got through to the quarter finals narrowly losing to HJPS. The boys represented our school proudly and we are fast becoming a force to be reckoned within the Maccabi Sports competitions!
It was an absolute pleasure to join the Year 4 football team, at the Maccabi tournament. They were excited to represent our school and Maccabi commented on how well behaved our players were. The team played very well and left the competition undefeated, narrowly missing the opportunity to go through to the semi-finals. I was extremely proud of all of the players and would like to thank Mr Benedick for coaching the team and the other parents who drove the children.
