Year 4 had a fantastic afternoon of hockey at The Purbeck School. We spent the first half of the afternoon with, sports leaders of the school. We practised how to carry the ball, the block tackle, passing and shooting. The second part of the afternoon was spent playing matches against other local primary schools. St Mary’s won all three of their matches, winning 1-0 , 1-0 and 1-0.
Well done to all the children that took part, it was great to see all the hard work you have put into hockey club at school come together in the matches.
A selection of Year 4 pupils represented the school when they took part in the Purbeck School Handball festival. They spent the afternoon working in teams taking part in skill-based games & drills, whilst learning the rules to the game. The final part to the day was then spent playing matches against other local primary schools within the Purbeck area.
St Mary’s y4 football team won the Swanage Shield local tournament after an exciting final where they beat St Mark’s 4-2.
