Year 6 Dodgeball Tournament – December 18
Kodi, Rose, Harry, Millie, Frankie and Thomas took part in a dodgeball tournament in Weston Super Mare, North Somerset competing against eight other schools.
There were three games per match and 2 minutes per game. We won the majority of our games but unfortunately we didn’t get a medal. However, we will get certificates for taking part.
Rules: There were four people per team on the court and one boy and one girl grabbing the balls when they went out of play who had to put them back in the corner of the court. There were three whistles: two to get ready and then the referee would say “321” and blow the third whistle to start. Then we would all run from behind the line to get to the three balls. If you got hit you would get taken out but if another team member caught the ball that player will be able to get back on the court. The winner, after the 2 minutes was up, was the team with the most players left or if all of the other players are out. If you stepped out of the court (which a few of us did once or twice) you had to sit out onto the mat.
We all showed great respect to the other players by shaking their hands by the end of the game and enjoyed the overall experience.
