Today some Year 5 children went to Albany school to play in a High 5 netball tournament. It was an exciting day! When we arrived we were put into a pool with other schools: Hylands, Crownfield, Oakfields and Harold Wood.
Our first match was against Oakfields, It was a fantastic start, Megan passed the ball well to Ella and Reece. Reece had a few shots on target! Zain and Mia worked tirelessly in defence and the game resulted in a 0-0 draw.
Our second game was against a much tougher Harold Wood team. There was some excellent defending from Lucy and Henry. And excellent movement from Ruby as C. Sachi and Wumi had a tough job scoring against a tall attacking team. Unfortunately we lost this game 2-0.
Our third match was against an experienced Hylands squad. There was some fantastic link play from Reece, Ruby and Mia, which results in some attempted shots from Zain. Ella and Reece worked hard to defend. Everyone played very well but unfortunately it ended in a 2-0 defeat.
Our final match was against a very tall Harold Wood team. Lucy was outstanding as C and had many interceptions. Fantastic passing in the circle meant both Henry and Megan had a shot on target. Wumi and Sachi were excellent in defence and the final score was a 0-0 draw!
Overall we had a fantastic fun day, we played extremely well, against some strong opposition (many of the children were in year 6 children) and we are looking forward to returning next year! Thank you to all the parents that came to support, Mrs Rawlings and Mr Gentle!
