Tag Rugby Tournament

The Tag Rugby season has arrived and the children have represented the school in a 7 a side event over the past 2 Thursdays. The first afternoon we were very unlucky, the team was down a player and we were unlucky to lose 3 games by 1 point every match. The second week was very different, arriving at St Marys with a full team and playing some good Rugby. We won 1, drew 1 and lost 1. Overall the children were fantastic and really enjoyed themselves. Thank you to Mr Lawlor for helping out with training and selection with the teams.

Manchester United Coaching Sessions

Coaches have been coming in from Manchester United to work with year 3 pupils every Friday morning over the past half term. The lessons focus on improving the children's ball control, their coordination, skills, and tricks, rules of the game and also teamwork. The children loved the experience and we hope to work with Manchester United again in the future.
