On Friday 13th October an excitable bunch of Year 3 & 4 pupils from Westcliff Primary Academy and Kenton Primary School joined together for an afternoon of High 5 netball. The session was organised and led by Becky Mason from the Dartmoor School Sport Partnership along with five brilliant Year 8 Sports Leaders form Dawlish Community College.
First the pupils played some fun warm up drills before practising and developing their netball skills including correct ‘footwork’, passing, dodging, attacking and defending. After this the positions and rules of the game were explored and the pupils split into three mixed teams to play lots of mini matches. On every match the pupils rotated their position on the court so they got the full High 5 experience!
It was fantastic to see how well the pupils worked collaboratively together and how much their skills, knowledge and understanding of the game developed during the afternoon.
Many thanks to Hannah Dempsey, Head of PE at Dawlish Community College for supporting the afternoon with her time, leaders and the astro space and to Jo Hussain for the great photos.
