Today we had Dianne and Chelsea come to school to teach us some hockey skills.
We learnt...

  • you need to hit the hockey ball with the flat side of the stick
  • we need to keep the hockey stick below your knees (but in a real game of hockey its below your shoulders)
  • three types of dribbles - Indian, open and closed dribbles
  • how to hold a hockey stick properly - left hand on the top and right hand down on the shiny part
After we practised these skills we played a game of hockey stuck in the mud.
Watch these videos to see us in action!
