On Thursday our cracking Year 3/4 Rugby Team went to Overton to play in a tournament. 30 schools were involved on this day and our children were pretty nervous as for many of them, this was the first time they had played rugby competitively.
The team, a mixture of girls and boys, have been training for over a year now and wow have they made super progress. The group of schools they were up against in the first round were tough but our rugby stars managed to win all but one of their group games and the one they didn't win was a draw.
The children just got better and better as the day progressed - working so well as a team by encouraging one another, being there for one another and using their growth mindset skills to the full!
In their last game, the final - the children were up against Fair Oak which is a very large 5 form entry school near Southampton. Our children battled through and were really impressive but just couldn't hold Fair Oak back so we ended up losing the game but by a very small margin!
We are so proud of the children who represented our school so brilliantly. The trophy is proudly sitting with our others just outside our hall.
