Handball Festival Champions

1st place for Kennet Valley

What a fantastic day at the Handball Festival. This festival was full of fun and energy, Handball is fast paced and a great multi skilled sport.

All wearing their team tops you could feel the excited nerves from all 10 children. They took themselves to each game with enthusiasm and were superbly behaved.

Our first game was against Oare, the first half they were finding their feet, but after the half time team talk from Mrs Blackmore, they all showed how brilliantly they can play. They had 2 more games to play, winning both. They reached the final playing the winners of group B – Ogbourne.

They were nervous before the game but determined to win the final. They did, showing great sportsmanship and making everyone extremely proud.

Well done team!

On the 14th of February me and 9 of year 4 went to the handball festival. During the 1st half of the 1st game we didn’t play very well but things got easier. Game 2 was much better and we got better through the rest of the competition. We played against Ogbourne St George Primary School in the final and won 11 – 6. Harry was asked to lift the shield at the end and he took it back to school.
