Tag rugby festival round up

On Wednesday 4th December we hosted a Tag Rugby Festival at Staveley Primary School. Luckily the weather held and we had a gloriously sunny morning for the event. Schools from Staveley, Boroughbridge, Kirk Hammerton, Nun Monkton and Great Ouseburn took part in the Y4, 5 and 6 festival.

The festival was split into year groups, with each school competing in a round robin tournament. Children were rewarded for their use of social skills throughout, with a lot of encouragement and communication on display in particular. As well as this, the quality of rugby on a slippy surface, was fantastic, with some brilliant running with the ball and passing.

Boroughbridge won on the year 4 pitch, Kirk Hammerton in the year 5 pitch and Great Ouseburn/Nun Monkton on the year 6 pitch.
