It’s been a great week this week at Pool House.
We managed to enjoy lots of sports this week, with more children joining in than ever before.
In the upper juniors we had that many players that we had to spilt them into three teams. We played winner stays on and there was not one clear winner on either day. Harrison stepped up with the goal of the week (again) with a wonderful drag back and low finish; placement over power. In tag rugby some super dodging and swivelling saw Connor score a fantastic try and Gabriel stole the show in skittles with some great defending and team play.
The lower juniors asked for football every day this week. Four games of football saw new faces joining in and having fun. Even with more players it was still good to see great sportsmanship being displayed. On Friday we enjoyed some basketball. Its great how well these children can go from game to game, follow the rules and enjoy themselves all at the same time.
In the infants we played various types of football games. All lead by a junior referee, these games were picked by the infants and they loved it. As ever the infants showed superb enthusiasm and effort to have fun. Even the infants themselves were coming up with ideas of how to change and alter the games to make them more fun and interesting.
This week’s infant sports person of the week goes to Mikquell. Three of the junior referees asked for this young man to receive this award this week for outstanding contribution and effort in every game, and I totally agree.
The lower junior sports person of the week award goes to Daisy. A new face in our lunch time sports but what a way to start. Every day she was ready to play. Eager to work as a team when needed and tried her very best whenever she could.
The upper junior sports person of the week award goes to Ellie. Ellie has not been playing these sports games for too long, but what an impact she has made. She’s shown great organisational skills and fantastic defending. She is a natural leader and trys to get everyone to play as a team.
