Hockey Tournament – Maple Class

Today (10th March) we went to a hockey tournament – it was amazing, so very exciting!  We were all nervous at the start, especially as we all had to wear gum shields as we were playing with wooden sticks!  The players were Summer, Sophie, Rosie, Lola, Joshua, Mersim, Spencer, Jake, Zaine and Jamie and Mrs Howard and Miss Charles came with us.  Sadly we lost the first game but we did really well and learnt lots from it – we went on to win two games and drew two games from the rest of those we played; we nearly got to the semi-final – next time maybe!

Despite our initial nerves we all tried really hard, supported each other and never gave up – we were definitely tired when we got back to school. We hope we get to play more matches in the future and we hope that all the other teams do well in the semis and finals.
