Year 6 Tag Rugby Competition 

 On 6th November we took a team of Year 6 Pupils to a Tag Rugby Competition at Writtle College.  The sun was shining, but it was a cold, autumnal afternoon.  The team were put in a tough pool and played 6 ten minute games.  After adjusting to the level of competition, the team worked hard, passing the ball well and finding space across the field.  The scores were very close with a mixture of wins, draws and losses.  We managed to get through to the second round of games and won them 3-1 and 2-1.  A couple of excellent performances!  It was an awesome afternoon and we can feel very proud of our team.  Well done all!

Well done to Fran, Rosie, Abbie, Reanna, Owen, Toby, Henry, James, Euan, Brynley, Harry and Freddy

Thank you to Mrs Champney for organising and being a great supporter throughout the competition, and to all the parents, carers for their help with lifts, we couldn't go without your help!  

Year 5/6 Badminton Competition

On 17th October Writtle Juniors took a team of four children to take part in a Badminton Competition at Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre. They spent the morning playing several matches consisting of both single and doubles games. They did fantastically and won all their games-finishing top of their pool 11--5, 11--4, 11-5, 11-6, 11-2, 11-4, 11-8,11-4 11-4, 11-2, 11-3, 11-5, 11-7. They then went and played against the winners of the other pool. They lost 3 very close games 10-11,6-11 and 7-11 and won one 11-6. The games were excellent and to such an impressive standard! The team ended coming 2nd with just 1 point in it to win..!

Well done to Brynley, Thomas, Elise and Eleanor
