Form 3 Hockey Fixture

By All School News

On Tuesday 10th March, Form 3 had a fantastic afternoon taking part in their first hockey fixtures against Orchard House School.

The class were divided into two teams (Blues and Purples) to play against Orchard House. Despite only having a couple of hockey lessons this year, you certainly couldn’t tell they were playing their first matches , winning 2 and drawing 3 of their 6 games played.

The Blues and Purples both demonstrated fantastic team work in attacking and defending, with all of them being assertive in their play and effectively contributing to their teams’ performances.

The girls will continue to work on their spacing out and structure across the pitch during lessons, which will allow them to attack with greater speed through passing over longer distances using the width and height on the pitch.

Thank you to all of the parents who came and supported the Form 3 in their matches, we hope you enjoyed it as much as they did!
