On Thursday 9th February, our Year 6 volleyball team were involved in a competition at Hathershaw Sports College.
It was a very good turn out with 6 other schools from the West Oldham Borough taking part.
The winner of each match was the team that reached 10 points first. Werneth didn’t get off to a great start losing the first match. However, after this disappointing opener, we won the next 2 matches!
We were on a high going into our next game against St Martin’s. Unfortunately, our bubble was burst, losing 10 – 8 in a closely run and competitive game. In the final match of the evening, Werneth got off to a great start picking up 5 points before St Patrick’s responded. Could we hold our form? We went on to win the match 10 -6. Fantastic!
At the end of the tournament Werneth did themselves proud by finishing in the runners up position, only losing out to St Patrick’s.
After the tournament Mr. Mitchell asked the team what they had learned about the experience. The pupils felt communication and all members of the team supporting each other were the main factors of their success in the tournament.
Well done Werneth!
