On Wednesday 30th March, 15 children from Year 6 attended the Quicksticks Tournament held by the Herne Bay Partnership but which included the Canterbury district as well. As with the Year 4 tournament, 25 schools attended and we fielded 2 teams. Team 2 played valiantly and with great enthusiasm and were unlucky not to progress further than the first round of games. Team 1 displayed magnificent skills and teamwork and sailed through to the final and won!
A big 'thank you' goes to Mrs Upton who gave up her free time to come and help -you are a star!
Here are some quotes from the children:
"Team 1 got off to a good start, winning all their matches and progressing to the quarter finals. We managed to keep going and win 4-1 in the Final (only one goal conceded in the whole tournament). Bridge got Gold! We are looking forward to another event." (Conrad).
"It was amazing, especially when Team 1 won Gold." (Lucy)
"It was a really fun and exciting day!" (Scarlett)
