On Tuesday 29th November 2016 a group of six children from Year 5 along with Miss Belcher (who has been training them) took part in South Solihull's first ever dodgeball tournament. The children were really excited to be chosen to represent Peterbrook Primary School and to play against different schools in the borough. They had a rocky start to the tournament but they were able to pull it back and draw their first game and then win the tiebreaker. With this new found confidence the children went on to win all of their matches meaning that they won their group and went through to the final. During their first final match the children were quick to take the lead and won the match meaning that they were then playing for first place. Their final match was extremely close but Peterbrook managed to catch out the final player on the opposing team meaning that they won first place! The children have now won a place in the next dodgeball tournament which will take place early next year!
A huge thank you to all who came and supported the children, it was an exciting event which the children really enjoyed and they truly deserved to win after they showed fantastic teamwork throughout! We are all looking forward to our next tournament, so let's keep up with all our hard work in training!
