At Hillstone Primary school we believe that a child, who is physically active, is a happier child. The early years of a child's life builds the paving blocks to fundamental skills for future activity, developing agility, balance, coordination and sport specific skills. Sport and Physical Education promotes health and exercise and means our children will be more likely to be active adults. Not only does sport have physical benefits but it also develops their social attributes, improving their confidence, teamwork and communication skills.
On Tuesday 17th October our year 3 & 4 football team took part in a Birmingham School Games level 2 football competition. All in all, there were eleven teams that attended. We were put in a group of six teams. We did really well in the group stage winning every game, scoring plenty of goals and conceding few. After finishing top of our group we qualified for the semi final, and managed to win that game 8-2. In the final we played against guardian Angels who had some fantastic footballers. We knew it would be a closer game and that we would have to be at our very best to try and get the win.
We came away 6-2 winners. Well done to all of our team who played exceptionally well. They showed fantastic effort and work rate and thoroughly deserved their win.
We now go onto the Birmingham School Games Finals at the Futsal Arena in February. This is where we will play against every team that has won their area competition.
