New Age Curling - December 2018
This week a team from Phase 4 represented the school at a New Age Curling competition. Just as it sounds, it's just like the sport you see at the Winter Olympics, just without the ice and the frantic brushing! It takes a steady hand and a tactical brain to get the stone onto the target or block the opposition from scoring, or clearing your stones out. The children played really well, winning our 1st round group and then narrowly missing out on the finals. Well done team!
Thomas said, “It was very competitive but we all shook hands at the end and it was good fun.”
Eira said, “The curling was really fun and we played well as a team to come fifth.”
Mr Thornton said, “The children were really proud of their performance and worked very well as a team, showing some great tactical play.”
