Yesterday was the Year 5/6 tournament at Overton. Most Basingstoke schools went and our children had a great time despite being rained on at lunchtime!!! Our team played incredibly well - winning 2 and drawing 1 of their six matches. We were part of a really strong pool and the children battled on throughout. When we did lose the margin was really small.
We did come away with fantastic news though. Our school WON this years' Rugby League....we are so, so. so proud of them!!! Our trophy is now sitting proudly by our Sports Day Cup. It just goes to show that practice does make you better as our Rugby teams have been practicing every week since the start of the academic year. Thank you to Miss Grainger and Mr Wood who have been training you. They have thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for next season.
Our Year 3/4 tournament is being held next month so please cross your fingers for our team. They too have been practicing with me since September - I have certainly seen them progress so I'm hoping they will do well. Mr Wood is also joining us for extra practice before we head off to Overton again.
