Sycamores took part in the inaugural Link Academy Tag Rugby Festival at Newton Abbot Rugby Club on Friday 19th October 2018.

Bearnes, after walking the short distance from school were there in force fielding 3 separate teams!

There was a bit of apprehension before the festival started with the majority of the class having never taken part in an event like this before and initially we struggled to score in our first games, but once everyone got into the swing of it, we couldn’t get the children off the pitch and they couldn’t stop scoring tries! The coaches from Saints South were incredibly impressed with the tenacity and team work from all of the children. Well Done Bearnes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone tried incredibly hard but a special mention must go out to name  Kasem, Jamie, Dylan and Kesia who all showed great skill (The link below demonstrates one of Kesia’s stand out moments that was caught on camera).

We were really proud of the whole class for how well they showed respect for each other and the referees.

Thank you ever so much to Wednesday’s and Ioana’s Mum. We couldn’t have done it without your help. We look forward to the next festival.
