Year 3 Rugby
In the spring term Year 3 are learning the fundamental skills of rugby.
“I loved rugby because the ball is an unusual shape.”
“It is good because I’ve never played before so I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. But I can!”
“I like rugby because I’m really into rugby eventhough it is new to me. I have learnt how to pass. It is really different because you throw the ball on the side.”
Year 5 and 6 children from Mirfield schools took part in a tournament of friendly netball matches.

Carol Thompson from the Pennine Sport Partnership has been to work with Year 4 this morning to play Boccia – a disability sport. The children had a great time gaining an understanding of how difficult it can be playing sport sat down. Lots of children were so excited they couldn’t stay in their seat.
Lucas – it was really good because it was really complicated but fun. It was a challenge.
Indigo – I liked it because it was really competitive. Every time someone different and the chance to be referee. I found refereeing hard because I was the first one. It was awesome!
