In our PE sessions last half term we focused on the skills that are needed to play an invasion game. We then practiced our hockey skills passing, dribbling, shooting and tackling.
Over the next few Fridays, the children will be putting these skills in action and participating in a hockey tournament (which they have been very excited about). Today we began the tournament and managed to play two matches. We were very impressed with how well the children played and the sportsmanship they all showed to the opposing team :). It really was lovely to hear the children praising their rivals and having a positive attitude even when they weren’t themselves victorious.
At the end of the tournament, we are planning an in-class awards ceremony where we will be celebrating our successes. In addition to this, we will also be rewarding a sportsperson of the tournament award :D.
