On Tuesday 18th October 2016 Badgers Class (year 5&6) took part in a HSSP Primary School tag rugby tournament.
We entered two teams; an A Team and a B Team. The A Team was made up of: Josh Tomlinson, Peter Anderson, Rhys Davies, Matthew Kay, Tazio Chiari, Tanya Jackson, Pippa Moore, Gracie Hallewell, Maia Innes and Amaya Ferry-Jones.
The B Team played excellently but sadly lost all of their matches. Although they did get better as they played on. The B Team was made up of: Lucy Hunt, Reggie Dear, Gabriella Simonis, Molly Avery, Sam Squires, PJ Gaskin, Ava Triance, Millie Walters, Danny Joe –Howie, Shamas Harrod and Alistair Outram.
Overall the A Team came 3rd out of 8 teams because they lost one match against Spaldwick but were really pleased and got a certificate for taking part and a certificate for teamwork.
The B Team also came 3rd out 4 teams. We were all really pleased as this a huge achievement.
Josh Tomlinson and Peter Anderson Said: “When we were getting ready for the first match I was buzzing! When we won our first match I felt adrenaline running! When we lost a match against Spaldwick I felt all right because they did play well. When I (Peter) got so many tries I felt so good and glad I helped the team so much!”
The teachers that accompanied us were Mrs Reid, Mrs Kennedy, Mrs Johnson and Mrs Sheehan. Jay Wilkin also came to take pictures for the media team.
