Hockey Festival

Posted on Posted in News

Huge congratulations to our Year 6’s who took part in the Hockey Festival this week. The team teams battled through horrendous weather conditions (as           evidenced by some very soggy pictures). Well done to the whole team for           persevering and cheering each other on!


On Tuesday this​ week, two teams of Year 6 children competed in the Bracknell Forest Primary school Hockey Festival. All sets of players made everyone proud. In the first few matches, both teams won their games and played some excellent passing    hockey. Both teams then proceeded to the quarter finals. Sadly, team A lost on     penalties to a very strong Harmans Water. In the other quarter-final heroic           goalkeeping by Rae saw the team progress in their game which also went to a       penalty shoot out. Team B, led by captain Amaiyah, now  had to face Team A’s       victors – Harman’s Water. It was a tense Semi-final with very few shots on goal. Brave defending from both teams led to the match being decided on penalties. Charlie Newman took the deciding penalty and he bravely slotted it home.  The final was played against a technically good team from Whitegrove. After a tough match, team B lost by 2 goals. They still worked hard and impressed everyone. While we may not have won the tournament, we still tried our very best. Thank you to all the adults who took us there and helped prepare us for the event. A final thank you to Mr Page and Mrs Cooper – we really appreciate your support and thank you for getting so wet.  By Hamza, Yr 6
