Four Nations Tag Rugby 2018
We had an absolutely fantastic day for our Four Nations Tag Rugby Tournament. It started with a very well attended and hearty breakfast with tasty treats from each of the four nations for the children.
Many of the children came to school with homemade flags and shirts to support their nation of the day and the playground was decorated with flags, photographs of previous tournaments and the trophy, creating a great atmosphere.
The tournament started with great support and cheering from all the infant children as Year 3 enjoyed their first opportunity to take part in the competition. All the competitors worked together to get involved in some hard fought matches that were superbly refereed by Year 6 throughout the day. Year 5 stepping in for the Year 6 matches.
Twenty Four matches were played each lasting 8 minutes and the overall winners were decided after a nail biting finish to the Year 6 England v Ireland match (England 4 – Ireland 3).
Scotland were declared the overall winners.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable day with a friendly but competitive atmosphere.

Ballot Box 2016
This week the children have been given the chance to vote on how they would like to change the back playground. The ballot paper asked for a ‘Yes’ of ‘No’ answer to lots of different questions e.g. Do we have enough space for running around/sitting and doing quiet things? Do we need more/less grass? The sail should stay/go. Do we need another trim trail? Our School Council have been involved in the preparation of the ballot questions and we will let you know the results in due course!
