Friday’s Sport with Year 3 and 4

Year 3 and 4 had a great afternoon of sports.  The girls played inter-house hockey whilst the boys had an afternoon of rugby practice.  It was a sunny but cold afternoon but it didn’t stop the children from playing, the faster they ran the warmer they got.  Here are some photos of their games session.
