Hi Five Netball
On Tuesday 12th February our mixed Year 5 and 6 High 5 netball teams played their first competitive matches against Parklands Primary.
High 5 is designed specifically for children aged 9-11 and involves the rotation of positions after each quarter played. This enables players to try out the different positions of shooter,attack, defence and centre court which are seen in the more well known 7 a side game.
Both of our teams have been training hard and played exceptionally well in their games. They showed great teamwork and really encouraged each other on and off of the court. The final scores were 5-2 and 3-0 to Preston Hedge’s.
We are now looking forward to our away matches over at Parklands which will take place at the end of March. Well done to all of our children involved!
Eco Warriors Project
We are proud to announce that Preston Hedge’s Primary school is set to establish its very own Eco Warriors group of children from Years 2-6. This green group will focus upon reducing the school’s carbon foot print by promoting a variety of environmentally friendly routines.
For example, the group will encourage recycling as they will be responsible for checking and regulating the use of different recycling boxes in each classroom. In addition to this, the Eco representatives will conduct regular checks around the school to ensure that items are safely switched off when they are not in use.
We have so far had over 100 applications for the Eco Warriors post. Here is an example:
