Class 3 Hockey Success
It was a successful day for 6 of the children in Class 3 yesterday after they won the district Hockey finals, competing against 5 other primary schools. They won 3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 5-2 and had a close match scoring 1-1 with Cogenhoe.
The children developed a ‘fruit’ based code which they used to guide and direct each other during the games. This proved effective at both securing the wins and confusing the other teams! The codes were: Apple = mark other player. Banana = back in position. Strawberry = stick down. Orange = tackle. Bruised Lemon = someone is hurt. Coconut = nearly! Mango = win/victory
They reflected on their previous games and applied their school SMART values to improve their play – working as a team to pass the ball, saying well done to the other schools they played against and clapping the other teams after their games.
Well done Class 3!
