What a term! The co-curricular games lessons have been a great success and we have witnessed a massive amount of development from all our children. 
We welcomed Ranby House for some Mixed Netball first. It was out first ever Mixed netball event. We played England Netball’s ‘Stinger’ game which means all players get to rotate around the positions which is great to develop all the individual skills in Netball.
Ranby started well taking a 4 goal lead into half time. In the last 2 quarters BH rallied and came back to tie the game 9-9. A fantastic showing by our children in their first Mixed game. 
We then headed to Horncastle Hockey Club for matches against St Hugh's. Taking a mixture of boys from Years 4 to 6.  We started against St Hughs A. Despite dominating possession, St Hugh's were more clinical in front of goal winning 2-1. 
The 2nd game was against St Hugh's B. The boys showed what they are capable of by beating this team 4-0. A fine display of passing forward and winning the ball back quickly. 
Other fixtures this term were a great success. Burton Hathow Football beat Liverpool. Mo Salah said ‘ BH are best team we have played all year!'
The Netball team beat world number 1s Australia convincingly. It was quite the trek to Melbourne but Mr Buckland managed it all on a Wednesday afternoon. 
The last fixture of the term was the eagerly anticipated rematch of BH Staff vs BH Parents at Netball. Finally Mr Keen could stand up and be proud of his performance against Mrs Collins, Mr Millard was seen to be ‘doing bits’ and mesmorising Miss Cook-Bell, Miss South pulled out her step ladder to score over Mr Clark Clements, Mr Winfield is still missing  (Mrs Bowden you can let him out your pocket now!) Mrs Ford is still looking for her nails, Mrs Gibson managed the last 3/4 of the match on her feet and Mr Hardcastle has recovered from concussion. 
'Man of the Match,' Mr Bell, said: ‘Thanks to all those who took part in such a convincing win for the staff, better luck next time parents!’
