The Year 2 children were treated to a hockey masterclass by Dulwich College sports teacher Justin King assisted by Mr Kelly, who plays international hockey for Wales. Avocet and Curlew Classes, accompanied by some children from Year 1, were taken through skills using both uni-hoc and field hockey sticks. The children had the run of the running track astro, as they practised their stick and ball control. Mr King was very impressed with the way the children adapted to the space and worked in the very windy conditions. He even saw some improvements in technique as the children became more familiar with the field hockey sticks and harder balls. The highlight for the children was the skills show that Mr King and Mr Kelly put on for the children. Hopefully more than a few of them walked away from this special games session inspired to do more!
