Match Review by Roving Sports Reporter, William Rogers, Year 6 On Wednesday 27th September, the Year 7 and 8 boys (and me, Will Rogers, from Year 6) played an extremely tough game of football against Oakgrove School. None of us had played together as a team before but we showed great ability in attack against a team who showed awesome techniques and skills in all areas.
Anyway, back to us. Mr Small was thrilled with how we played on the battlefield. Although we were defeated, we showed great skills in attack, defence and teamwork, especially in the second half when Haseeb saved some awesome shots that were on target. Although eight goals were conceded, it could have been so much worse, so well done Hasseeb and our defenders.
The stand out player of the match in my opinion was Elliot Balchin-Love (Year 8) in attack, closely followed by Oliver Hayward (Year 7), also an attacker. The final score was 8-0 to Oakgrove. Well done Webber! What have you done today to make YOU feel proud? (Thank you to Saule in Year 7 who helped with the commentary.)

In the middle of the way of our life
I found myself lost
In a blue desert surrounded by
Wild spitting beasts;
Saved by criminals and allowed to live...
Blue desert that has no pity of our
Misadventures, no emotion regarding our
Derelict children, innocent of any
Crime, but ripped apart by the weight of
Vast and proud he stands as a barrier
Between us and Hope:
She knows us very well; we met,
When the wind was calm and
The frantic sun did not bomb us.
She left now, all that remains are
Her footprints in our minds.
In the middle of our adventure,
Looking for better or simple right of life;
We struggle as the smugglers talk of
The Jungle and its gate towards
A possibility to begin.
Match report by Mrs K Willis Tuesday 26th September 2017 8-2 Win for Webber Netball Dream TeamOur U14 netball champions continued their winning streak on Tuesday, beating Oakgrove 8-2. Once again our girls showed their determination and outstanding skills - remaining unbeaten this season.
The starting seven put us in a strong position with Sophie and Sam securing three goals in the first quarter. In the second quarter Alison and Sophie continued to put pressure on our opponents with another three goals.
Lily, Jaanvi and our new addition to the team, Lucie, made up a sterling defence and prevented Oakgrove from any opportunities in their attacking circle. Aaliya and Jaydie displayed excellent centre court passing and interceptions, which meant Webber regained possession and discontinued Oakgrove's advantages.
The final two quarters saw the Webber girls take us into a winning position securing another two goals, with Oakgrove achieving their first two goals of the match. Our champions …
Match Review by Mrs K Willis Thursday 23rd November 2017
On Thursday 23rd November, the U14 Netball team played in their last league game of the term against Radcliffe. It was a nail biting start with Webber scoring the first goal and Radcliffe responding immediately. Webber scored again, as did Radcliffe and the first quarter finished 3-2 to us. After a brief team talk, Webber went into the second quarter with their fighting spirit and stepped up their game play. Determination and competitiveness shone through and some fantastic interceptions in the centre third enabled us to secure four more goals. Radcliffe also fought hard and managed to score 2 more goals taking the score to 7-4. It was our toughest game yet and Webber responded to the pressure admirably, never giving up and rising to the challenge. The team played some incredible netball in the third quarter, with our star shooters on top form yet again. Our defending was also strong and we prevented Radcliffe from scoring, which …
