Spirit of the Games: School Games Values. The six School Games values - Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination and Teamwork - were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the 'spirit' of the School Game.
Temple Hill Primary Academy promote the School Games Values

Y5/6 Quicksticks Hockey Tournament - 09.10.2019
On Wednesday 9th October, it was the turn of our Y5/6 hockey team to compete at DSTC. The rules are same with each match having three thirds and the team rotating, however 6 players are on the pitch at any one time and the pitch is twice the size.
Unfortunately, Mason was unable to take part following a football injury he sustained on Monday and we were one girl short too! This also meant the team had no rest between thirds.
They played some exceptional hockey, attacking well. We had a mix of results, winning two, losing one and drawing two which mean we finished 3rd in group. In the playoffs we were drawn against Oakfield, who also came third in their group. It was a great game with end to end action, but neither team could score the vital goal, so it ended a draw.
We came joint 5th with Oakfield out of twelve schools, which was fantastic.
Congratulations to New Ash Green who came first in both tournaments and will go on to represent Dartford at the Kent Finals in June.
Well done to: Ben, Charlie, Safwan, Tyra, Kylie and Lily
Year 3/4 Quicksticks Hockey Tournament - 08.10.2019
Our School Games Partnership competition calendar got under way this week with the Quicksticks Hockey Tournaments.
On Tuesday 8th October, our lower KS2 hockey team travelled to DSTC where they joined 13 other Dartford schools in the first of two tournaments.
Each match is made up of three playing thirds, with the team rotating positions after each third. Four players are allowed on the pitch at any one, meaning everyone plays two thirds in each match. Unfortunately we were one player short, which meant the girls played the whole game and sometimes back to back matches so they had very little rest time.
We played really well, trying our very best and although we didn’t win all our matches, we thoroughly enjoyed taking part.
We finished 7th overall which is fantastic and the children should be very proud of their achievement.
Well done to: Telisha, Lilly, Henry, Dario and Daniel and thank you to Miss Blackmore for coaching the team!
