On Thursday 31st January, Form 5 participated in (what was for many of them) their first competitive hockey fixture against another school.
The girls divided themselves into two squads to play against the Form 5 and 6 Orchard House mixed teams. This provided an excellent opportunity for the girls to gain experience in match play.
They all displayed fantastic perseverance and determination throughout their games against much more experienced opposition. Both our teams demonstrated effective team work, passing, positioning and moving around the opposition – all of which we have been focussing on during their lessons.
A huge well done to all of the girls for playing so well in their first set of matches, it was great to see them enjoying themselves so much in a sport which they are relatively new to. We look forward to continuing to develop and build on the key concepts of hockey during P.E. lessons ahead of their next set of fixtures before half term.
