Wl vs. Colfes - Netball

On the 27th January the netball team played against Colfes in a league match. Colfes were a bit late but that didn’t matter. We got first centre and straight away we scored a goal. It was a very interesting match because we would score and then Colfes would score. Then our defences kicked into action and didn’t give Colfes many opportunities. It was a very exciting match and we won 11:6. We then played another friendly match and won.

WL vs. Blackheath Prep - Netball

On the 20th January the Year 6 Netball team went to Blackheath Prep School to play a league netball match. When we arrived on the court we started to warm up. Mrs Chelton then handed our bibs out, we had a group chat and off we went. We had the first centre so we kind of had a head start. It was a very fun netball match, we played two quarters. West Lodge 11-0 and we are all looking forward to our upcoming league matches.

Year 5 Netball Match

On Thursday 19th January, Year 5 played a netball match against Blackheath Prep. When they arrived we completed some warm ups first, and then we were ready to play. We played 4 quarters, each were 6 minutes long. In the first half we were winning but in the second half they managed to catch us up and they won 8-4. It was a very good game, after we had hot chocolate and biscuits! Although we lost, we still had lots of fun and played well as a team.

Skipping Workshops - 9th Jan 2017

On Monday 9th January Reception to Year 6 took part in some Skipping workshops run by Lizzie. She had us working hard from the minute our workshops started, and we were all exhausted by the end! We learnt a variety of different skills and techniques to help improve our skipping and we even learnt some tricks too! We learnt how to speed skip as well as skip forwards and backwards. Some of us had a go at some tricks including cross-overs, arm wraps and the pretzel! The older children had a go at partner skipping as well as some Double Dutch. At the end of the day the whole school watched a performance where Lizzie and some of the pupils showed us what they had learnt.
We had a fantastic time at our workshops and the show, thank you very much to Lizzie for coming in and working with us!
