Cross Country and Tag Rugby Competitions – October 2019

Just before half term, 18 pupils from Year 2 upwards when to Earlham Park to participate in the Norfolk Schools Partnership Cross Country event.   They all had a great day and enjoyed considerable success.  In year 2,  Igor came 1st  and Isaac finished 2nd which is amazing.  Matilda, also in Year 2 came 1st in the girls competition and Primrose finished in the top 10.  Fabulous.  Florence in Year 3 came 1st and the other Year 3s, Ingrid, George and Hugo respectfully came in the top 20.  In Year 4 Leo came 2nd and Georgie and Killian finished in the top 10 and 20 respectively. In Year 5 Risard came 5th, Olivia 12thand Sophia and Tymoteusz both finished in the top 40.  In year 6 Kaiser, Adas and Isabella all came in the top 25.   A fabulous result by all.

In late October, 18 pupils went to the Schools Partnership Tag Rugby tournament at the Crusaders Club in Little Melton.   One team came second in the group which put them in the Cup tournament and finished 3rd in their group.  We await confirmation of their final place.  The other team finished 3rd in their group by try difference and finished top of their group in the Plate.  Again we await confirmation of their final place.    Incredibly well done all.   Mr Palmer was so pleased with the sportsmanship of all competitors in both tournaments.
