At Hockey DXB we’re diversifying the sport currently on offer in Dubai, supplying first class coaching and fun-fast-paced structured games.

 

Hockey is an Olympic sport played all over the world and great for all ages and abilities.

 

England Hockey Board Qualified coaches and ex-international players deliver the sessions transferring their high content knowledge to the students. Ability and age specific training sessions means your child can get the most out of every session.

 

Our sessions offer progressive development of the core skills that are required to play small sided games allowing for more touches on the ball and faster skill acquisition as well as personal and social development.

 

 By the end of this coaching block each student will have the skill level and sporting knowledge to play fun, fast paced structured game play.

 

Included in the program is an end of term tournament which is a great way to showcase their skills and play some competitive sport.

 

Upon each sign up the player is given full playing kit and a IN2Hockey Passport giving a fantastic introduction to the game.

Internal ECA Club Locations

Dear Parents,

Due to the overcrowding that is taking place after internal ECA clubs, collection at 3.30pm on Sunday and Wednesday will now be directly from the location of the club.

As always, the children’s safety is our number one priority, and this change will help to ensure that all children are always safe and accounted for.

Attached is a list of each of the internal ECA club locations for Sunday and Wednesday. Please note that, for the purposes of consistency over the week, Homework Club collection will still always be from the courtyard.

Changes to Reading

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to inform you that we will be changing the way that we assign children their reading books. Children will now be allocated reading books by a ‘stage’, and not a colour.

We have chosen to do this in an effort to simplify the process and also prevent trickier books being mixed in with those that are easier to decode.

As you can see in the chart below, an estimation is given of the stage your child may be allocated, in relation to the book colour they already read. However, the teacher will use their professional judgement to allocate your child’s books, as some colours are in a range of stages.

The stage is easy to find on the back of the Oxford Reading Tree books and the stages also corresponds with our other Big Cat and Firefly books.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Miss Beth, who is our Reading Coordinator, at: bmiddleton@vhprimary.com
