Netball Club

Following October half term, Netball Club has begun for Key Stage 2 children. Jacqui, a professional netball coach, delivers weekly sessions, after school. In the first two sessions, Jacqui has been focusing on improving the children’s passing techniques. They have learnt how to perform the bounce, chest and shoulder pass and also learnt when each of these passes should be used.

Chest pass – most accurate type of pass to move the ball around the court. Typically used for a throw in.
Shoulder pass – used to cover bigger distances.
Bounce pass – most commonly used in the goal circle, to feed shooters.

The team have also had quality play time focusing on improving footwork and learning about the roles of each of the positions. The netballers are looking forward to continuing to improve their skills and eventually entering local inter-school events.

Y3/4 Footballing Stars

Well done to our Year 3 and 4 football team, who competed in our local inter-school competition at Ormiston Shelfield Academy this week. Many of these children have never played competitively before, but have been regularly attending football club with Mrs Binks and Mrs Bird.

The team made excellent progress throughout the four games they played. It was clear to see improvements in their teamwork, passing and communication, resulting in their first win! The children are certainly looking forward to their next competition.

Thank you again to Aidan, Rowan, Max, Jerel, Sienna, Tyler-Jai, Jibran, Kaylen, Miller and Jude.
