The main sport that we played this week was Rugby, with some Target Boccia and Bench Ball thrown in as well. The session started with some skills based practice which consisted of throwing and catching the Rugby ball so that by the end they could pass the ball to each other quite well. They started off working in pairs but that soon moved on to games called Hunter and Dragons Den (and no it didnt involve pitching to a bunch of rich people!). As you can see in the photos there was also a game played in two large circles but I am not sure what the name of that game was!
Whilst the larger children were playing Hunter the little ones, and some of the girls, had the opportunity to practice their throwing using bean bags in a game of Target Boccia, in the hallway. Georgia led the game with some great help from Ollie.
After a short break we played some games of Bench ball which carried on the theme of throwing and catching - but this time using a round ball rather than a rugby ball. At the end of the session the coaches decided that Nicholas was the star of the week for his excellent participation and enthusiasm so well done to Nicholas!
