Finishing the term on a sporting high

We have enjoyed a fantastic term of sport here at King’s Hawford and it is great to have finished this term on a sporting high! This week the U10 and U8 boys have been in action on the rugby pitches and the U8 and U9 girls have played a some fantastic hockey as part of their inter-house tournament. It has been great to see all of the pupils improve week on week, taking on board everything they have learnt in their games lessons. All of the staff involved in coaching are extremely proud of the sporting successes this term.

U10 boys rugby vs Hereford Cathedral School

On Wednesday, the Year 5 boys travelled to Hereford for their final rugby match of the term against Hereford Cathedral School. What ensued was a simply outstanding game of rugby between two impressive and well-drilled sides. The defending on show was fantastic from both teams, with great commitment and tackling techniques. There were numerous try-saving tackles and great teamwork in attack. The staff and parents of Hereford Cathedral School were full of praise for the quality of the Hawford boys; Hereford were a very strong side and we were the only school who have been a match for them all term. This was an impressive way to end a highly successful term.

U8 boys tag rugby festival

The Year 3 boys travelled to RGS The Grange for their final festival of what has been an outstanding first term of rugby for them. They played some excellent rugby against a number of other schools, both locally and from further afield. The boys continued their trend of playing outstanding running rugby and had a wonderful afternoon, full of committed defending and super try scoring. This was a great way to round off a highly impressive term of rugby.

Year 3 & 4 Girls Inter House Hockey 

On Thursday afternoon, the Year 3 and 4 girls took part in their annual hockey house matches.  All the teams took part with great enthusiasm and there was plenty of skill on show.  The house teams were made up of girls from both year groups.  Malvern worked hard with one fewer player than the other houses. Darcy B (Malvern) and Jetta P (Kinver) tackled well against their opponents and Grace D (Clent) made some good saves on the goal line.  The entire Bredon team put in an excellent effort, working cohesively and communicating well, enabling them to score multiple goals in every match.  Holly J and Harriet B were excellent in attack and they were supported well by Mary W (Bredon).  The Games staff nominated two individuals from each team for ‘Star Player’ and these girls were: Harriet B and Holly J (Bredon), Grace D and Lily S-H (Clent), Jetta P and Thea E (Kinver) and Chloe T and Darcy B (Malvern).  All the girls should be commended for their excellent sportsmanship and sporting effort.
