Last Monday Team Rushmere went to St Joseph's school to compete in the School Games Tag Rugby competition. Looking very smart in their kit, the team took a few matches to gel. But towards the end of the competition they were drawing and winning games.
Two pupils from Rushmere represented South Ipswich at the Cross Country finals at Royal Hospital School.
The event combined all the winners of the local area events from both Year 6 and Year 7. The races included around 60 pupils.
Our runners were fantastic... AND will be in the same event next year as they are only Year 6 pupils!
Lana finished an amazing 5th out of 65 runners. Sidney finished an excellent 16th out 74 runners. They ran their socks off and were just... brilliant!

Well Done to Rushmere's Cricket Team this morning.
Mr Plowman was very pleased indeed. He reported 'We had a great time this morning. The children played really well, winning two and losing two. We came up against some really fierce and well drilled opposition but the team did us proud. '
Great work everyone.
Thank you to Mr Plowman for training and taking the children.
Well done to all of the athletes that represented Team Rushmere at the QuadKids tournament held at Northgate Sports Centre this afternoon.

You should all feel very proud of yourselves! Lots of sponsor money has been brought in already reaching a total of around £2500. Keep bringing your sponsor money in. We want to reach our goal of £3000! What an achievement that will be!
On Thursday we were very excited to have a Golf coach in to give us a taste of what Golf is all about. The children loved the experience and hopefully some of you have been down the driving range since.
Over the next two weeks all of the other classes have a golf session to look forward to. Watch this space for more photos.

Followed by Kasper, Callum and Leonardo. A spectacular run from by Lana in the year 5 girls race. She finished first and didn't even look out of breath! Ashley closely followed by Darcy and Faith. Great race girls!
Team Rushmere kept up the winning streak in the year 6 boys race. Sam came over the line first with a solid run. Followed by Ben, Ashton and Alex. Alex was pulled in at the last minute this morning to race for Team Rushmere. Very adaptable! Thank you Alex!
