Year 5 Rugby Tournament 

The children had a fantastic morning playing Tag Rugby against Golden Valley and Kingshill. The morning consisted of training and learning the basic tag rugby skills followed by playing 4 games each. The children showed fantastic teamwork skills, they cheered for one another and helped each other to develop their skills, playing to each others strengths. Year 5 also had the opportunity to gain an understanding on what it takes to be good sportsmen and women making sure they ended the game by shaking hands.
