Yesterday, 20 pupils from year 5 went to compete in a year 5/6 rugby tournament at Consett Rugby club. Despite the cold and the wind, all the children were excited and raring to go; they certainly were not going to let a little mud get in the way of the fun. There was approximately 30 schools in the competition and over 200 children took part in the day so the atmosphere was amazing.
We entered 2 teams into the event and both did our school proud!! They were respectful, supportive of each other and showed impeccable levels of sportsmanship even when faced with some challenging situations (and some quite tough tackles from older children).
The consett 2 team couldn’t believe it when they made it to the final and they put up a good fight against some very strong teams. In the end, Consett 2 came away with a very well- deserved bronze medal!! However, even more impressive than that was the way the Consett 1 team were rooting them on every step of the way and even stormed the pitch chanting when they won their final match- that’s team spirit!!
