Year 8 recently enjoyed a highly energetic end to the Lansdowne week with a wonderful P.E. session packed full of hockey action and skills. The pupils have been learning how to hit an effective hockey shot. Although power and strength are important, Mr Lee has taught us that we also need to be able to control the hockey stick and ball.
We set up a number of exercises to help improve this skill. Two teams occupied the school court. On the halfway line was a series of balls. The challenge was for each team to try and clear the balls from their half of the court with some powerful and accurate shooting.
