Every year we have a Year 6 netball squad that trains in the Autumn, Winter and Spring term. Trials happened in the Autumn term and the teams are selected. The team consists of boys and girls. Those selected will be invited to train each Wednesday from 3.20-4.30pm. They must remember to bring a change of clothes (not school PE kits please) and their water bottle. They will get changed in 5S or 6H and will be expected to change back into their school uniform before leaving. If this is an issue for you, please speak to Mr Lee.
The squad trains until Easter and does not run in the Summer term. If the weather is very bad, training may have to be cancelled so please be prepared for late notice. If we have very wet or icy weather, the session will have to be cancelled as the hall would not be a suitable alternative and may already be in use. If your child cannot attend a session for any reason, I would be grateful if you notify myself or the office in advance. Please note that during the last half term of the Winter term and first half term of the Spring term, children will not be released to walk home unaccompanied due to the limited daylight, as per the school policy.
Along with the privilege of being selected to represent the school comes the responsibilty of leading by example. Therefore, any child who repeatedly misbehaves at school, either on or off the court, will be swapped with a player from the C team without hesitation.
Parents are kept informed via WhatsApp by Mrs Wilson, the netball team co-ordinator. Please contact Mrs Wilson LWilson@wallacefields-jun.surrey.sch.uk to join a WhatsApp group so you can be alerted to any last minute cancellations or specific match details.
Don’t forget a water bottle.
In early spring we start playing our inter-school netball fixtures against the local Epsom and Ewell schools and then at the end of the spring term there is normally a district netball rally which is always well attended.
