Three weeks ago, St Jude's competed in a Year 5/6 tag rugby event at Henry Cort Community College.
These events are always full of schools from the local area and are often pretty competitive!
For the children who took part in this event, this was their first time competing as a team. You would never have been able to tell! Every player showed great collaboration and were extremely resilient in what was a pretty horrible day to be playing outside. The rain and the wind was relentless. Nonetheless, every single player contributed well in attack and defence.
St Jude's played 4 games, narrowly losing 1 and winning the other 3 convincingly! Ratu was superb at avoiding the opposition and managed to dodge and weave with ease. Neve also scored a magnificent try, sprinting past all of the opposition from deep inside her own half.
Thank you to all who took part. You represented St Jude's brilliantly.
On Monday 1st April, St Jude's hosted an inter-house netball tournament. We were fortunate enough to be blessed with glorious weather which made the afternoon even better!
All of the children who competed showed great determination, competitiveness and sportsmanship. They were excellent role models for their younger peers.
The tournament started with Ghandi beating King 4-0, with Rachel and Ratu scoring 2 points each.
In the following game, Romero beat Mandela 4-2. Joseph (3) and Holly scored for Romero and Alice and Zach scored for Mandela.
In the penultimate game, King beat Mandela 1-0 thanks to Sofia scoring the only point.
Finally, Ghandi won the tournament by beating Romero 5-1. Holly scored the only point for Romero whilst Ratu and Rachel (4) scored for Ghandi.
Thank you to all of KS2 who came out and supported their houses! It was a great afternoon.
Chance to Shine - Cricket
This week, Year 1, 2 and 3 were fortunate enough to take part in a cricket workshop led by the charity Chance to Shine. Chance to Shine gives children the opportunity to enjoy, learn and play through cricket.
Each year group worked with the coaches throughout the morning and had a wonderful time! Who knew cricket could be so noisy?!
It is clear from the pictures that everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We might have a future cricket star in the making . . .
Thank you to the Chance to Shine coaches for this fantastic opportunity.
