Last week our Year 1 & Year 6 children were lucky enough to receive hockey coaching from Ross Gilham-Jones, a professional hockey player who has represented Great Britain in the Youth Olympics as vice captain in addition to many other high profile roles in the sport.
He taught the children passing, dribbling the ball and shooting during their coaching hour. We saw some excellent skills from our children - maybe they'll be representing GB in a few years time!
