Master Class.


Even with Christmas in sight the sport didn’t stop at St Martin’s this week.

On Monday we had our second master class of the year, this time with England netballer Laura Malcolm, 24 children from both St Martin’s Academy and Delamere took part in the class developing their basic netball skills with lots of fun and games thrown in. Laura developed the children’s passing skills, adding in extra elements to help their coordination and reactions. They then moved on to look at footwork and finally shooting, all of the drills and games were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone involved. We were very grateful to Laura for inspiring the children and we hope to invite Laura back in to work with our netball squad.

Judo col

The last event on the sporting calendar, a judo competition, took place at Delamere Academy on Thursday. Fifteen Judoka’s took part in the competition that was separated into 8 different categories based on size and gender. All of the children involved put their different judo moves into action whilst facing some tough opponents. In each category the children faced at least 3 other opponents and then were given an overall position based on the amount of fights they won. St Martin’s had a very successful medal haul winning three gold, five silver and seven bronze medals, there were also three trophies up for grabs a boys player of the match, girls player of the match and a spirit of judo award and we are very pleased that St Martin’s came home with all three trophies.

These last two events wrap up a very successful sporting term, we are currently second position in the year 3/4 football league, and at the top of the year 3/4 netball league. Also with great sporting successes in the swimming gala, tag rugby festival, key stage 1 netball tournament and all of the Mini Kickers football tournaments. We look forward to continuing this success after a well deserved Christmas break.
