Football at Walsall Football Club

Yesterday, our Year 5 and 6 football team went along to The Banks’ Stadium in Walsall to take part in a tournament with other local primary schools. There were 8 other schools in total and each team played a 10 minute match against each other.

The weather conditions were really tricky as the wind was quite strong and it was very cold.

In the 8 matches that ‘Team Rushall’ played, they won 5, drew 1 and lost 2. A fantastic effort by all of the players and a huge improvement from their last tournament! The team train on a Monday night after school with Mrs Binks and Mrs Bird. We are very proud of all of you!

Well done to Luke, Dominic, Kheelan, Charlie, Luke, Alfie, Riley and Oliver.

Swimming Gala

Yesterday afternoon, a team of our swimmers went to Bloxwich Active Living Centre to take part in the annual local Swimming Gala along with 8 other schools. Each swimmer competed in their own individual race of a certain stroke and then they worked as a team to race in the two relay races. Riley and Erin swam back stroke, Luke and Grace swam breast stroke, Alfie and Faith swam Butterfly and Kheelan and Savannah swam freestyle.

The effort and determination that they all put in was outstanding. Our girls team finished second overall which was fantastic! We are waiting to hear if any of our swimmers get through individually to the Walsall finals.

Watch this space for the announcements!

We are very proud of you all – well done!
