Year 6 Netball v Truro School

Wednesday 16 January 2019

On Wednesday 16 January 2019, all the girls from Year 6 travelled to Truro School to play netball against their Year 7 squad. Although the girls were nervous to be playing others from a year above, after a cautious start they soon got into the flow of the game. As they relaxed, they started linking their passes down the court at speed, putting the opposition under pressure.

Jasmine and Daisy made some brilliantly timed interceptions, just before half-time, which stopped Truro from increasing their lead. In the latter stages of the game, we started to make better use of the space on court. After some quick passing from Sophie, a lovely goal from Ankita was their reward.

Kyla was named player of the match by Truro School, but all girls should be incredibly proud of how well they played as a team at this early point in the season. Thanks to Josie Macdonald for her help with transporting the girls, and to all the other parents who came along to support.

Both of our netball teams played really well in terms of defence, we just struggled to get it into the circle.

A positive start to the season – with lots of things to work on!

Year 4 Netball v Polwhele House School

Tuesday 29 January 2019

On Tuesday, we hosted the Year 4 girls from Polwhele House School for an afternoon of netball.

All the girls from Year 4 played, showing an excellent attitude by supporting both their friends and the opposition, in a very well contested match.

Some great passing from Lilly and Clara allowed us to get the ball down the court swiftly. Furthermore, the shooting partnership of Lucy and Flo meant that the majority of the game was played in our third.

A beautiful goal by Flo meant we started the scoring, and some tight defending by Isabelle and Eva kept the Polwhele team from scoring.

This was a great start to the netball season for the Year 4 girls.
