Sainsbury’s School Games Year 5/6 High 5 Netball Tournament

8th March 2016
On Tuesday 1st March, the Year 5/6 netball ‘A’ team competed at Bulmershe Secondary School against other Wokingham schools. Upon arrival, we were greeted by huge gusts of wind and the children soon realised that shooting accurately was going to be tricky!

Shinfield were put into a pool of 6 teams, with the top two teams going through to semi finals and the final. The children started off with a bang and dominated their first game with a 1-0 scoreline that didn’t reflect the number of shots they had on goal! Another win, two draws and a loss followed. Not knowing whether they had got through or not, the Shinfield children proceeded to play a friendly game against Nine Mile Ride which they also drew.

Finally, the semi final schools were announced and we found out that we had missed out on a place by one goal! Despite this, Mr Lappin was extremely proud of the aggression and determination of the netball play shown throughout the afternoon.
