They will look after their eggs and document the attachments they create using all the knowledge they have learnt about attachment theories this term!

  • They've done it again!!!! We won 20-0 against Northfleet School for Girls!! The girls worked specifically well to try and calm and control the game from the start and it paid off with an extremely solid defence and an unstoppable attack. The girls also showed their versatility by swapping and trying out some different positions. Alana was extremely cool and collected as goalkeeper, following the ball and making some excellent interceptions. Leah and Freya demonstrated some great pressure in defence also, stretching and reaching and intercepting very well. Megan, Erin, Chloe and Isla showed off their outstanding fitness by working as the centre court players and showing off their brilliant acceleration and battled for so many balls, yet still managing to maintain great footwork. Once again Ruby and Georgiana were AMAZING in the shooting circle, displaying some lovely movement to work the ball in and out, as well as scoring many goals. Georgiana was nominated player of the match by our opposition. The girls yet again were fantastic ambassadors for our school and greated and congratulated the opposition, as well as giving them 3 cheers at the end of the game. #winners
