Year 5/6 Hockey Tournament
On Tuesday 28th February, a select group of Y5/6 representatives from Ramsey Juniors went to a Quicksticks Hockey tournament at St Ivo Outdoor Centre. It was one of the biggest competitions we have attended with 20 local primary schools and a whopping 37 teams competing in A, B and C categories. Twelve children made up 2 squads of 6 for an A and a B team. In Quicksticks, there are 4 players on the pitch per team and the team must have equal numbers of girls and boys. They played 5 matches each, and we managed a very respectable 5 wins of the 10 games in total. The children had a great time:
"They were worthy opponents," says Kenny (Y6) and Jamie (Y6) says, "It was fantastic and I'm glad I had the opportunity to do it!" Ellie (Y6) summarises the afternoon nicely by saying, "Best day of school EVER!"
Mrs Conner and Mrs Wharton are very proud of them. They played with determination, self-belief and passion - we could not ask for any more! Well done!
