Introduction to Ball Skills for Beech House Pupils
Wednesday, 02 October 2013
Beech House pupils joined over 60 Year 1 and 2 pupils from eight other local primary schools from across the region to take part in a Ball Skills Festival organised by the Senior School.
Teams of eight children took part different activities ranging from sports such as football, hockey, and tennis to throwing events. Year 8 helpers from the Boys’ Division were on hand to offer encouragement and to help the afternoon run smoothly. Schools picked up points as they took part in each event and every child that took part received a certificate. The Beech House pupils scored the highest number of points with a massive 2900!
The aim of the event was to give the children a flavour of the different skills used across different sports. All the schools that took part demonstrated real sportsmanship and team work as they made use of the resources and facilities at the School.
Organiser of the event, Chris Windsor, said: "It was great to see so many year 1 and 2 children trying out new skills and participating in team sports. The standard from all the Schools was extremely high too!"
