On Tuesday 11th March King Edward VI High School Stafford held a High 5 Netball festival. (a 5 a side game with adapted rules for primary children in mixed teams)
This follows on from the very successful primary school festivals already held at King Edward VI High School this year.
7 Primary school teams from the King Edward VI High School cluster participated in this popular event. That was around 50 children.
The games took place on the courts at King Edward VI High School, between 4pm – 5.30pm.
The emphasis was very much on taking part and enjoying the game of netball as for many children it was the 1st competitive games they had played.
High 5 is a 5 a side netball game with modified rules to accommodate the needs of the younger players. Teams were mixed sex.
Sports leaders from Y10, Y12 & Y13 at King Edward VI High School, umpired the games, organising the teams, acted as team managers and record the scores.
The festival was an opportunity to promote another sporting activity and to work across the whole age range of pupils in the family. All age groups worked together to make the event possible.
By holding a netball festival we hope to increase the amount of exercise children are doing. It is a great opportunity for the children to sample an activity in a festival environment and for the sports leaders to gain umpiring and leadership experience.
On the evening all games were played in a very sporting atmosphere. The competing teams were from Castlechurch, Church Eaton, Haughton St Giles (2 teams) and Woodseaves (3 teams).
All teams played each other and after some high scoring games Castlechurch emerged as the overall winners in a closely contested competition.
