Inter-House Handball Competition
Fearing that there the children’s opportunities for competition in Sport and P.E. were being hampered by the Covid-19 pandemic and not being able to mix bubbles, we held an inter-house handball competition across school. Each class held their own inter-house tournament throughout the week and the scores were sent to the Year 6 House Captains who collated the overall whole-school results. These results were then read out by the Year 6 House Captains and shared across school via a video link which all other classes watched eagerly.
The results were very close, but it was our red team, St Theresa who were crowned The Willows’ handball champions! Well done to our worthy winners, the children of St Theresa!
Staff members across school commented on how much fun the chil;dren had, how excited by the competitive nature they had been and how much they were looking forward to the next competition. Aside from the scoring and winning, the children showed great team work and great resilience with many teams winning from a losing position. Well done everyone for your enthusiasm and we are so glad you all enjoyed playing handball so much!
