Sports Review


Highlights from the week in PE

Children in Prep 3 have been working hard this week in tennis and are trying master starting in the ready position before hitting the ball on the forehand. We will be moving on to focus on the backhand next week.



Girls sport

On Wednesday the U10 and U11 girls played against Kings Gloucester away.

The U11’s had a really strong start to the game, but struggled to get used to the size of the pitch and the space which resulted in them losing 3-2. It was a good start to the season and an unfortunate loss. Player of the match was Isla Thomas. The U10’s unfortunately lost 0-3 but there was some good hockey played and the girls know what they need to improve on. Players player went to Isla B whilst coaches player went to Erin E.
6 girls also travelled to Dean Close on Monday for a sports day. Well done to all those who took part but congratulations to Isla Thomas & Matilda Cowan who were awarded ‘Players’ of the day’.

Boys sports
