Girls Netball at SKA- Monday 30th January
The girls travelled to Skinners Kent Academy on Monday to take part in the District Netball League. The pupils played a number of high intensity Netball games against some very organised teams but despite losing to a very strong St James A and B team the pupils showed great resilience. We had a number of excellent performances with Freya showing her strength in defense whilst both Isabella and Hattie showed some good strategy with their passing and ability to move into space. As a team our focus is to practice jumping on rebounds and passing the ball to the moving player as well as looking for the player in attack.
Well done to the team that took part: Francesca, Hattie, Isabella, Freya, Sophia-Ella, Bella, Chloe and Nancy.
Netball has started with our Year 5 and 6 pupils practicing every Tuesday ready for the fixtures at Skinners Kent Academy throughout the Autumn and Winter terms. The team has been working hard under the guidance of Miss Wright who is a keen Netball player and Year 2 teacher. Miss Wright is thrilled with the progress that the pupils have shown so far this Autumn, improving their passing and shooting, ability to create space and their understanding of the different positions and strategies needed to be successful as a team. Here are few pictures of early season training.
Well done to all the pupils that took part in the recent Netball against St Matthews at SKA. It was an amazing experience for all the pupils and despite losing 6-0 the pupils really enjoyed playing competitively against other schools.
