The Year 6 pupils had their OAA curriculum for PE at Robinwood. They had an amazing time, participating in various team challenges, zip wire and raft building. 

Well the rugby season got off to a flyer! Our Year 5 and 6 team went into the tournament as defending champions. They won their group comfortably, winning all four of their games. They beat Tilston in the semi-final 5 -1. Then, it was Bickerton once again in the final. 1 -1 finish meant extra time. Then, we ran home four tries to win 4 -1. Rugby Champions

In the first round of the Cheshire West cup, we found ourselves up against St Oswalds. We started brightly, but we hit on the break to go 1 - 0 down. We came back well, but with time running out it was 2 -2. Oliver scored with seconds left to give us a 3 - 2 victory.
