Year 4 Hockey Finals @ Whickham School

Mar 24, 2020Extra Curricular, Physical Education, Sport, Year 4

The children from Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed their recent P.E unit and have really impressed Miss Conway and Miss Whaley!  They have each developed their hockey skills including passing and receiving the ball and attacking and defending.  They have then applied these skills when playing a game.  Recently, 12 of our children went along to Kingsmeadow school and took part in a tournament against another local primary school.  There were 6 teams in total and our teams managed to come 1st, 2nd and 3rd!  The children then made it through to the hockey finals which was held at Whickham School.  At this event, 24 teams from around Gateshead attended and played in groups of 4.  The children played amazing and stood out for showing outstanding sportsmanship when on the pitch.  Although, we managed to finish 2nd in our group, we did not place overall.  However, Miss Conway would like to thank each of the children for their fantastic attitude and for constantly cheering on their peers.  You all played amazing and should be very proud of yourselves!
