Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Festival at Maidenhead Rugby Club
Wow what a fabulous afternoon spent with some Year 5 and Year 6's at our first Tag Rugby festival where the emphasis was on playing the game and enjoying the values of Tag Rugby and not all about the winning. All children were given a certificate and a big round of applause and believe me, there was a big range of abilities and experiences from the different schools.There were 12 teams there and we got to play 8 games during the afternoon and I have to say, our team had a big learning curve to endure throughout the afternoon.
We made some mistakes but the children were very good at listening and put all their efforts in improving in the next game we had to play. I think by the time we reached our fourth game, we had warmed up and had a bit more time to flow as a team.
The results were as follows
Riverside v Cookham Dean lost 0-4
Riverside v Furze Platt B lost 1-4 (Sufian scored the try)
Riverside v Cookham Rise A lost 0-3
Riverside V Holyport A lost 3-4 (2 tries from Abdullah and one from Azaan)
Riverside v Courthouse B lost 0-4
Riverside v Furze Platt A lost 1-4 ( Abdullah scored the try)
Riverside v Holyport B won 2-0 (Hashim and Abdullah scored a try)
Riverside v Cookham Rise B lost 2-5 (Hashim and Azaan scored a try)
Well done to the whole team who were fantastic from beginning to end in their enthusiasm and resilience and teamwork. The team were Aleena, Sara, Ezzah, Sufian, Hashim, Abdullah, Azzan, Jayden and Sumaiya and the captain was Abdullah and he really did lead by example as he ran through and round the opposition.
Thank you to Miss Porter for helping with a lift to the event.
