Sports Update: Summer Term

Sports-icon

Welcome back, everyone, from the PE Department – an exciting term awaits us! Now we have the daylight on our side, we commence a term of athletics, cricket and rounders.
We have plenty of rounders fixtures in place for our teams, starting with the U16 team next Wednesday vs Sprowston at home. The picture below is from last summer.

We will be developing our ability to run, jump and throw in preparation for Sports Day which will be on Thursday 21st June. This is a whole school event and something we all look forward to. Sports Day support from parents and family members is greatly encouraged – so if you can come to cheer us on, please do!

We will be introducing the pupils to our new fitness suite and look forward to seeing them all in action. I am wondering whether we can row, ride, run or cycle to somewhere far away if we keep track ofour collective distances as a school?!

Mrs Woods’ end of term Sports Report and gallery

This term saw our pupils play netball, badminton and football, swim in galas, hone our dancing and gymnastics skills and develop our fitness. Rugby tots continues to be a real hit for our youngest pupils. So much fun and enjoyment had by all!

We played 26 fixtures over the term and my personal highlight was our U16 netball match against Thorpe St Andrew School, where after being 8-1 down at half time the girls came back to win 14-13 – incredible!

Inter-house netball saw Ryder win both the Year 7-9 and Years 10-11 competitions, with some great skill on show.  Have a look at the short video clip from the Years 10-11 matches:
Our balcony area has been transformed into a fitness suite housing two treadmills, two bikes and a rowing machine. The suite is just awaiting the fixing of mirrors next week and will be open to pupils after the Easter break, so watch this space for some pictures!

As a busy term has passed, another one is forthcoming and there will be lots of rounders fixtures to announce soon!

Many thanks to Miss Wright, Mrs McEvoy and Katie Brooks for their continued hard work and dedication to the sport at Hethersett Old Hall School. An extra mention must go out to Mrs Maher who has been escorting us on all of our away fixtures. Without fail, she is there cheering our girls on through the wind, rain and the odd sunny day – thank you!

We hope you enjoy the gallery of pictures. Have a great Easter break, everyone!

U16 and U14 netball excellence v Thorpe St Andrew

Our U14 and U16 netball teams were both in action at home yesterday against Thorpe St Andrew.  Both teams played extremely well in very close games.  At half time, the U16s were losing 8-1,  but the girls really stepped up in the second half, effecting a brilliant come-back to pull off a 14-13 win! The U14 team worked hard for the whole game, playing some great netball and ending with a final score of 8-8.

Players of the match were picked by the opposition: congratulations to Alice P  for the U16s and Emily D for the U14s.  Well done to all the girls who played – there was some exceptional netball on display.
