The girls worked hard throughout the game improving on positioning and passing. Just before the half time whistle went Ella dribbled the ball in from the half way line and finished with a cracking goal hitting it straight in the back of the net! The team played a strong attacking game in the second half and scored 3 more times, Fran finally got the goal she deserved, followed by another goal by Ella then Fran scored the last! St Michaels tried to come back at WJS but their super strong defence lead by Rosie just wasn't letting them get through. Some great saves by Jessica! Fantastic result 4-0 win ! Well done to the team!

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!
