St. Francis’ Netball team
We have started out Diddy Dribblers football coaching in Key stage 1. We had a great start, and the children learned about dribbling, ball control and played lots of games too. The children were, of course, fantastic. Have a look at the photos below…
(Any further interest please see Miss Taylor in the office.)
We are entering the final week of our first session with Diddy Dribblers. We have been learning ball skills and playing games and we have been playing mini matches too. The children have come along way in a short time. If you too would like to join this wonderful club for reception and key stage 1 children pleasee see Mrs Taylor in the office.
