Netball success for Form 6!

By | All School News

Two Form 6 teams played in a round robin netball tournament against Heathfield House and Kew College on Thursday 7th February at Rocks Lane.

The Blue Team:
The blues first match was against Kew College, with the girls getting off to a great start through effective counter attacking and intercepting opposition passes to score the first goal. The game continued to have lots of turnovers from risky passing and successful interceptions before two more goals took the CBBPS team to a 3-0 victory.

For the second match the girls started sprightly with our team intercepting the Heathfield centre pass, leading to the first goal of the game. The girls demonstrated improvements in their passing, looking for shorter and faster passes across the court. The game ended with a final score of 4-0 to Chiswick & Bedford Park.

The Yellow Team:
The team started their fixture versus Heathfield House with the opposition keeping possession of the ball well and opening the scoring. The ball went back and forth between the teams with neither adding to the score, before our girls scored two goals in quick succession. The yellow team displayed passing and moving into space with confidence, winning the game 2-1.

In their second fixture game, we started to gain greater control of possession as the game went on, but unfortunately we couldn’t find the net to reward our possession. Kew College were able to take advantage of the opportunities that they created, converting three times and going on to win the match 3-0.

Well done to all of the girls who took part in the matches and thank you to Sophie for writing the match reports for the afternoon.

Form 4 Football Fixture

By | All School News

On Tuesday 5th February, Form 4 played a set of football fixtures against Heathfield House at Rocks Lane. With both schools having limited experience of playing football fixtures it was a fantastic opportunity to compete against each other.

The class was divided into three teams, each of which showed high levels of determination in their performances, with plenty of controlled tackling and defensive team work. All three teams were very evenly matched against Heathfield with the yellows and blues narrowly losing 2-0 in the first games and the reds drawing 0-0, with some excellent goal keeping on display by both teams.

All our teams demonstrated vast improvements in their game play throughout the fixtures, being able to distribute the ball to each other more effectively. We will continue to work on passing the ball up the pitch, along with shooting and applying their knowledge from other invasion games such as netball into this less familiar sports.

First Hockey Fixture for Form 5

By | All School News

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.
