Year 6 Inter-House Tag-Rugby – a Fabulous Afternoon.

Our first afternoon of inter-house sport… What a fantastic afternoon we had!

All of the Year 6 staff were looking for the following skills this afternoon:

  • Cohesion (team work).
  • Leadership.
  • Fair play (sportsmanship).
  • Aptitude.
  • Passing.
  • Running with the ball.
  • Tactical awareness.
  • Spacial awareness.

If you noticed some of these skills from above with a specific player, please comment what and who 🙂

Or even better, if you noticed any other skill… Comment with what and who!

The Afternoon:

From the word go the staff were astounded by how well everyone managed to organise warm-ups in their teams. One team (the Dragons) even set some drills up and practised. Every team talked tactics, discussed who would play at the start and how systems would run.This all came from no input from the adults! We just watched in amazement.

We played a round-robin to begin with, each team played one another and then we calculated the results, below:

Team W D L F A P
Dragons 3 0 0 12 8 9
Knights 0 1 2 5 9 1
Unicorns 1 1 1 9 10 4
Wizards 1 0 2 10 9 3

Very close on the amount of tries conceded…

Next we had our third-place play-off.

The score was:

Wizards 3 : 2 Knights


Wizards: Thomas C (3)

Knights: William P (2)

The grand final: 

This match went to the wire… It was 4:4 after 10 minutes so extended it to the final try wins. The ball went back and forth, tiredness crept in and errors began to occur. One try scored by the Dragons… But the player went out of play just before scoring, so close! The game ended with a fantastic try from Archie Chorlton.


Dragons: George K (2) Kasey W (1) and Kansi C (1)

Unicorns: Mikey (2), Tianna (1), George B (1) and Archie (1).


Everybody was sensational. Considering many people hadn’t played tag-rugby before, you all picked the rules up quickly and got well stuck in. We had a range of try scorers across the afternoon which is lovely to see. At least fifteen different people scored tries, over a quarter of the children playing! Everybody was tagging and worked brilliantly as a team.

The fair play by everyone was great too. All children participated and managed to regulate substitutes to ensure that everybody got a fair amount of game time.

On Monday we are going to give out more awards for fair play, assists, tagger and for the effort put into the games. As for now, we know that:

Top try-scorer (girl): Joint winners… Kasey Wright and Tianna Makin 

Top try-scorer (boy): Thomas Curry

Well done to literally all  of you… You all participated and tried extremely hard at all times. Have a fabulous weekend, you deserve it!!

Collaboration in PE

This PE lesson we looked at collaborative work and the associated skills .


  • Guidance
  • Listening
  • Sharing ideas
  • Fair play
  • Trust
  • Sportsmanship
  • Instructions
  • Sensible

In order to look at all of these skills and see how they work we did….

  1. Obstacle course – we made the field messy. We made one person in our group blind (with a blindfold). We had to guide them across the “minefield” without touching anything.
  2. In threes we had to get a rugby ball from one end of the pitch to the other, we had to use two skipping ropes. We weren’t allowed to touch the rugby ball with our hands, feet or any part of our bodies!
  3. We played a hoop game. In a team of five or six we had to get to the other end of the field without touching the ground outside of a hoop (we had two). We couldn’t move the hoop whilst we were inside it. It was difficult to begin with. Once we got used to it and came up with a good strategy it was easier! It required a lot of teamwork!
