On a wet and windy Saturday it was great to be inside the Oak View School hall to play some Rugby. We started as always with a warm up, led by Ray. It was then straight in to the Rugby with the kids pairing up for some passing practice.
From there we did some over-and-under and side-to-side.
We then moved on to working in a circle, firstly passing around the circle, then running across the circle and passing the ball on. Finally, each player took a turn to run around the circle. They had to get all the way around before the ball made it's way around, being passed from player to player.
After the main break we played some games of Hunter. This is a tag rugby game where the kids took it in turns to be hunter or hunted. One player, the hunted, runs up the hall to collect a rugby ball and tries to get it back to base without being tagged. The hunter has to run up the hall at the same time but go around a cone before trying to tag the other player once they have picked up the ball but before they get back. After every turn the hunter and hunted switch places so that each gets a turn playing each role.
We finished off the session with some games of Boccia with the group splitting in to two teams at either end of the hall and aiming for hoops in the middle. With each game the number of hoops was reduced so by the time of the last game there was just one hoop left. The reds won most of the games but the final game ended in a tie with 2 balls in the hoop each.
Our Stars of the Week this week were Charlotte and Davina - well done girls.
See you all next Saturday for more fun and excitement
