On the 5th October 2017, children from Oldway, Hayes, Preston, Sacred Heart, Stoke Gabriel, Collaton St Mary, Curledge Street and Roselands attended a Handball Festival at PCSA for Year 1s and 2s.
When we entered the Sports Hall, there was a lovely symphony of chatter and ecstatic children enthusiastically cheering for their school. Gleeful sports leaders were enjoying their time helping their corresponding group be safe, happy and enjoying themselves.
The young students took part in shooting, handball games, team challenges, crazy catch activities, rob the nest, possession games and dribble relays.
We asked the opinions of some students and staff about the event. They said:
“Very good” Poppy, Year 2
“Really fun” Rodney, Year 2
“I am enjoying it, it’s fun” Megan
“Very good idea, the students are learning a lot” Mr Cap, Hayes
“The children are responding well. It is very good.” Mrs Chadwick, Roselands
The sports leaders were incredibly helpful with the event; they were very enthusiastic and kind towards the primary school children.
“We think it was an amazing opportunity for the primary school students.” Daniel and Brandon.
