Sports Review November 2017

Girls Games
It was a very positive and successful start to the hockey season last half of term. The U8, U9 and U10s are currently unbeaten winning all of their matches both home and away. The U11s have won 5 out of 8 of their matches. They also represented the school well at the Dean Close skills day where Imogen Dean-Smith and Elodie Thomas won awards for showing good potential and skills throughout the day. The U13s have had some challenging matches but some good results and have made huge progress since the beginning of term. Well done to all of the girls, let’s hope for similar results this half of term.

Boys Games

I have been delighted with the success achieved on the games field. I think the games department is beginning to flourish and witness the benefits of starting teaching the ball skills from Nursery. Learning the fundamental basics is so valuable and once learned, the staff and I can extend and develop the skills further as they move through the school. The results achieved thus far pays testament to that. The U8 and U9 and U11 boys are all unbeaten at the moment. The U9s have not lost any inter-school matches and festival matches which equate to 20 games. The U10s and U13s have had some standout performances. Cal O Higgins, Adam Hughes, Monty Cowan, Archie Slater, Freddy Meredith and Henry Thorn, Archie Robertson, Ben Yardley and Felix Aspray are all leading the charge in their respective age groups. Let’s hope the standard of performance continues to improve. If it does, then the result with take care of itself. Well done boys – a super term so far!
