Rugby Match

March 5th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

On Wednesday 1st March we played our first home matches against Christchurch.  In the first half we were in the lead by 2:0 both scored by James.  In the second half we continued to grow in confidence and got better and better we used special tactics that we had planned and our passes improved dramatically with Aidan scoring two tries.

In the second match Christchurch played their other team and we prepared for brand new opponents.  Although we scored one try thanks to James they sadly scored five.  We all enjoyed the experience and we would like to give special thanks to Mr Gandy for being an amazing coach.

Football Competition

March 5th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

On 1st March 9 members of the Football team went to Mayfield School to take part in a local tournament.  In the first game we drew 1-1 in a very tight game.  Our second match was more successful and we won 2-0 with a great team performance.  Our third game of the group we lost 3-0, we didn’t play as well as we could have. In the final group match we won again 2-0 but unfortunately we can third in the group, one point behind second place and therefore did not go through to the knock out phase.

Thanks to all the teachers that helped organise it and also the parents for taking us there and picking us up.
