Exeter City Football Tournament 24.1.19
Yesterday, a team of year 6 children competed in a football tournament organised by Exeter City FC. Schools from all over Devon competed- so the standard was very impressive!
After a challenging group stage, Hazeldown went through to the knockout stages of the tournament. A nerve-racking penalty shootout went in Hazeldown’s favour- meaning we progressed to the quarter final stages. A riveting match ended 2-1 to the opposition.
Our children showed a fantastic supportive team-spirit and were very respectful to the other teams.
Well done to all involved!
Some of our children were making England flags today. They were talking about the England team and how well they are doing.
Who’s going to win? ⚽?⚽
We had a football display from a professional today! He showed us how to shoot, dribble and kick the ball with the side of your foot. Look at him go!
Have a go the next time you’re playing football.
Willow class thoroughly enjoyed their football workshop today, as part of our sports week. All children put in 100% effort and learnt some great new skills. What a wonderful way to spend a Friday afternoon! A massive thank you to Exeter City Football Club tutors.
