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.)
Year 8 are currently working on a project in Art to create Hundertwasser inspired cardboard buildings. A few weeks ago Ben Elston went on a workshop at Milton Keynes Gallery run by local artist Aaron Head. With other students, Ben helped to create a sprawling cardboard metropolis. Ben got the chance to build ‘big and bold’ by creatively re-using a variety of cardboard boxes and sculptural techniques.
Over the course of the day Ben's cathedral was part of a dizzying maze of tunnels, bridges and towers that emerged and spread across the room. As a culmination of the workshop participants ‘activated’ their city with the clever use of lights and torches to create shadows and depth.
Ben said that he thought it was a fascinating day and gave him lots of ideas for his own cardboard construction at school. Examples of the finished houses by Year 8 will be posted on the blog after Easter.
The Webber Under 14 Netball Team Take Another Win! Match Review: Mrs K Willis Match Date: Wednesday 6th March 2019
The U14 Netball team played their penultimate game of the
season this evening against Walton High. It was the deciding game for second
position in the league, as we were joint on points and goals, which
meant we had everything to play for. The tension was high and the first two
quarters ended with a 1-1 draw, with some very well matched but nervous play
from both teams. In the third quarter, Sophie scored an amazing goal from the
edge of the circle, which helped boost the teams confidence ending on a 3-1
lead. The final quarter showed Webber's determination and resilience and the
girls stepped up their game. Erin and Fey made some fantastic interceptions in
defence and prevented Walton High from gaining possession in the circle. Jaydie in
centre court worked hard to get the ball to Sophie and Samantha, as always they displayed outstanding shooting skills and managed to …
