Year 5’s visit to Blithfield Reservoir was very enjoyable.  All of the pupils enjoyed walking over that ‘dam wall’ and listening to Chris explain about the workings of the Overflow! Feeding the fish seemed the most popular part of the day though!

Smallwood started slowly and S. Anselm’s scored three quick tries. Dan, Nick and Paddy tackled well and but needed support from the other members of the team.
