East Preston Junior School

Year 5/6 Handball - 21/05/24

On Tuesday this week, three teams of Year 5 & 6 children travelled to The Angmering School for a handball tournament. One team was led by Mr Coates, one by myself (Mr Etherington) and one by an Angmering Sports Leader. 

Games got underway as all teams were participating at once. Results were less than favourable to begin with as teams were working out tactics. After a while, all three times really hit their stride and played really good handball; using their knowledge of passing, exploiting space, dribbling and movement. 

Before long, the three teams came up against one another - these were the closest games of all! During these games, it was a real joy to see children bouncing off one another and growing in confidence.

All participants walked away having learnt something and hopefully handball is a sport that they will continue to play!

Yours in sport,

Mr J Etherington (PE Lead)
