A Week of Y7-Y8 House Football and Hockey Matches

Despite the change in weather providing showers and shooting hailstones onto the Astro Turf, the Y7-Y8 Houses have been able to produce some fascinating House football and hockey matches. There is a buzz around the classrooms during morning registration as forms discuss starting line ups and potential winning tactical formulas to try and beat their fellow Houses. This week saw Y7 Howard’s beat Y7 Brook’s at football, Y8 Howson’s beat Y8 Butler’s at hockey, Y7 School beat Y7 Selwyn’s at hockey and debatably the match of the academic year so far as Y7 Brook’s fought back from 3-1 down to beat Y7 Selwyn’s 5-3 at football. Y7 Brook’s Football Captain Ben M was in scintillating form leading from the front to drag Brook’s back into the game. A special mention must go to Y7 House Mentor Mrs Webb a tactical football genius whose advice to her Y7 Selwyn’s form enabled them to roll back the years and produce a first half performance that had many purring at her gegenpressing Y7 Selwyn’s side.
