Y5 & Y6 Hockey Club
Mr MacDonald will be running a hockey club from 3pm-4pm on Thursday evenings starting on the 29th September. The club will run until the 17th November and is free to attend. If your child wishes to attend, you should complete the following form as early as possible by following this link:
Any submissions received after the 23rd of September may not be considered so please don’t leave it too late if your child wishes to attend.
There are opportunities for some children to represent the school in tournaments towards the end of November so we would like to build on the skills they are already being taught in P.E. lessons in order to help them be as successful as possible in the competition. If some children attending the club are unable to attend the tournament for any reason, they will be considered for future competitions.
We will use the Sports Hall for the club. For this reason, it is important that any child attending the club has a suitable indoor PE kit which will include black shorts, a white t-shirt and sensible trainers.
During the weeks we will look to develop skills of stick handling, dribbling, sending and receiving passes, shooting and how to move towards a target as a team. In addition to this, we will look to develop team skills, strategic thinking, understanding of the rules and how best to operate within them. While we always try to ensure the children have fun and enjoy themselves, we will be expecting them to engage positively with the learning delivered and develop their skills. That will include listening to and following instructions and being considerate towards others.
We are aiming for an approximate size of 16 per week with a maximum of 20 children. If there is a high demand for the club, we will consider how best to meet the need by either alternating the children into blocks of time or selecting in some kind of alternate way such as drawing out of a hat or first come first served etc.
Many thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you before the 23rd September.
