Congratulations to our Year 5 and Year 6 Squash teams who completed in the Saxon Cup on Wednesday. They each played great matches to win 1st place overall in both years 5 and 6. We also has children from the teams win best year 6 boy and girl and best year 5 girl. The teams showed good sportsmanship and were very organised. Well done to all!
On Tuesday 8th October, the Rushmere Hall Girls football team took part in our first tournament this season. We haven’t played outside school before so we were very excited. We were feeling very nervous but we were prepared for the challenge.
Our first match was tough as we were getting used to the layout of the game. The final score was 1-0 to the opposing side. We had a team talk and changed our formation and the next match went much smoother as we had improved our communication skills.
Our third match was against Sidegate and we lost 1-0 but we really enjoyed the game as we were really bonding as a team.
By the final match we had improved massively in all areas of play and we won 2-0. We were one of the only schools to score more than one goal.
We were really proud of our achievements and are looking forward to the next.
We were also proud that Mia won the Fair Play award and received a prize!

At lunchtime today Rushmere Hall held their very own World Cup Tag Rugby Match ahead of the Upcoming Rugby World Cup Final on Saturday morning. With Mrs Harries coaching South Africa and Miss Bullock coaching England the teams ran out to cheers from the year 5/6 spectators. Once warmed up, Mr Plowman asked each of the captains to come forward for the coin toss, which South Africa won. On the whistle, South Africa made a good charge towards the try line, however, the ball was intercepted part way down the field. England were quick to turn this over and scored their first try. Throughout the first half England kept making some great interceptions and took the score up to 3 - 0 at half time. After a few changes, South Africa came back stronger with a good defensive line. They quickly overturned the ball, and once in possession, sprinted for the try line to gain their first try. South Africa had more possession of the ball within the second half but did concede another 2 tries to England. The overall score was 5-1 to England. Great sportsmanship was shown by all players and we all had a fab time. We all are now hoping for an England win tomorrow!
