Year 6 Netball Rally at Bell Farm - Friday 11 March
Friday 11th was an exhilarating day for the Year 6 netball team. Court 2 at Bell Farm Primary School saw Cardinal Newman play a variety of teams, including Cleves, Ashley, Manorcroft, St Ann's Heath and finally St Jude's.
We enjoyed working together as a team as it proved just how far we had come since September.
Our best game was against Cleves - Emilia and Izzie M defended well. Izzie M smashed the ball out of our half, where Olivia and Zara had a go at shooting. Bella worked well to support the team as Centre. Dani, Izzie P and Lizze kept us going with encouragement.
Overall everyone played extremely well and are very happy with the results!
