Year 7 show spirit of rugby in sensational finale at Southam

The most improved team of the year came fresh from a Victory at Bablake 1/2 to crown the season with another win vs President Kennedy Coventry. 

The team had a pre match knock when inspirational captain Jasper H went home ill, but there were still 19 lads available with 3 new caps in the squad. 

With PK down players, boys went over and played for the opposition. Jacob H, Alex P, Josh F and Gethen M were outstanding in fighting against the green and black tide of hard running and rucking Rugby. They were equally as hard and committed in the tackle when playing for Southam in the second half. Alex P the most improved of the bunch.  Tries came from Macsen Sam L on debut,  Freddie D, Jo B, Oscar M to name but a few. As much as Southam now look good with the ball, everyone needs to improve their tackling. This is a big area to work on. It will turn a good side into a great side. 

Josh F linked well and showed that they are starting to get a pattern of play to their game . Harry F was a brilliant example of latching and having two scrum halves battling with Seb G and Ben R has improved standards. Morgan J ran well as did Harvey KV. Coen B was committed in the rucks as was the new flying full back Thomas G. 30 -10 at half time to Southam. 

Oscar M played for the opposition in the next game and it was only Macsen N playing out of position at full back that stopped him. The plaudits however go to Fin H for a great run on the wing – jinking like a young Shane Williams – and also Nav S. This lad shows real promise strength and a passion for the game. local coaches need to snap him up!!   

Man of the match was close. It could have been so many players Jo B was very close, Oscar, Alex P  and Macsen, but it has to go to Toby R. whose first half tackling, and commitment was fantastic.

Final score 55- 20.

Well done boys – training continues!

School Games Festival of Fun

On Tuesday morning a small group of year 7s attended the School Games Festival of Fun at Newbold Leisure Centre. The students took part in a variety of activities competing against students from Campion and Myton in Dodgeball, Basketball, Short Tennis and Badminton. The group also had the opportunity to use the rock climbing facilities which they thoroughly enjoyed. The students showed fantastic comradery and support for each other as they challenged themselves throughout the morning.

Well done to everyone involved!

This week some of our year 7 students completed their textiles rotation. At the start of the rotation the students were given the theme Promoting the Environment and were challenged to make a bag using different hand sewing and embroidery techniques. We have had some fantastic designs.

In year 8 they will be learning how to use a sewing machine.

Well done year 7.
