Netball club will restart in September.
Netball Tournaments 2018
Thank you to all the girls who represented Westacre Middle School at the district netball tournaments. You all played well and worked hard as a team. Over the summer, practise your passing skills ready for the next season. If you wish to play out of school, there is a netball club at the leisure centre every Wednesday.
Year 6 girls have been using the new netball posts on the MUGA to practise their shooting skills before their tournament at Bowbrook House School.
What a huge turnout! We have lots of girls attending netball each Tuesday. Each session has exciting, seeing the girls develop as strong and confident players. They have had the chance to work within their year groups, houses and mixed years. Each time, they have all been supportive of each other. I am looking forward to taking the teams to their district tournaments. More news to follow.
It has been a great term of netball, with lots of skills and games being developed. To finish off 2016, we held a netball house competition and played netball in our Christmas hats.
First game of the season
Wow! What a super effort from our Year 6 girls tonight. Despite being our first game, we showed some fantastic team work and encouragement. We have been working on the accuracy of our passes and following our player. Throughout the game, our spacing greatly improved and we intercepted many passes. Although we did not win, we have learnt a lot to take forward to our next game. St. Joseph's nominated Lucy Turner as our player of the match and the team voted Rhianna Dunn as our players' player.
Netball club has been successful so far, with a huge turn out from years 6 and 7. Year 5 numbers are gradually growing and the girls are becoming more confident and working well as a team. We have looked at passing accurately and working together to attack and defend. There are some matches which have been arranged for the coming weeks so keep an eye on this page for more details.
We are lucky to have two teachers (Mrs Hennessey and Mrs Radburn) leading netball club. Netball club runs on a Tuesday after school, 3.oo - 4.00pm. The sessions consist of fun games, training drills and matches. Get involved.
