Year 6 are learning to play hockey. This is a new sport to St Mary's and the team are working together very well. They have played in friendly games with Tower Road Primary School.
Recently the team went off to Kirton Leisure Centre to take part in a tournament against four other schools.
It was a bitterly cold day with periodic snow showers falling, quite hard at times. St Mary's entered three teams into the tournament along with four other school. There were three pitches two outside and one inside. Each team played a warm up game for ten minutes and then all teams played each other. After these preliminary games the scores were given. Then Semi final and final games were played.
Tower Road were the winners of the overall tournament. One of St Mary's teams came a respectable third. We are very proud of our teams who played courageously with passion and determination.
A great time was had by all.
