  3. 3. TEAM Emma Martin, Luke Dempster, Lucie Cresswell, Tom Stewart, Simon Gradwell, Hannah Bushell, Lucy Dutton, Daniel Kelly and Matthew Howard. Kew Woods Rugby Tournament Last Wednesday a team of Y5/6 boys and girls took part in the annual Tag Rugby tournament and performed brilliantly and finishing 2nd in their group of 4. Kew Woods A 4 Norwood 3 2 tries by Mattie Howard and one from Luke Dempster were not enough to beat Kew Woods, despite the fact that we had a number of chances to score tries. Great tagging by Lucy Dutton kept it very close, but we were to rue this defeat. Norwood 4 St. William of York 0 2 more tries from Mattie Howard, a debut try form Daniel kelly and one from Lucy Dutton gave us an easy win. Our defence and especially our tagging was impressive particularly from Tom Stewart, whose dives to make tags were extremely athletic. Norwood 2 St. Nicholas 1 Simon Gradwell and Luke Dempster each scored a try to give us what was a more comfortable win than the score suggests. Despite these 2 wins the loss against Kew meant that they went through to the semi finals, which was particularly frustrating as our defending had become better as the games had gone on. However it was a lovely afternoon of rugby with all the children receiving medals for participating and enjoying themselves representing the school. To round the day off We played a friendly match against Ainsadle St. Johns and won 7-0 with 2 tries from Emma Martin and one try each from Daniel Kelly, Luke Dempster, Tom Stewart, Lucy Dutton and Simon Gradwell. KS2 Chess Club After 8 weeks of hard practice, 25 children have successfully completed learning all the names of the pieces, how they move and have started to play chess. Their enthusiasm has been wonderful and if anyone is interested in learning chess or improving then please visit www.chesskids.com, where there are loads of resources to help improve all abilities.

  4. 4. Shinewaves Competition The Eco committee are currently judging the 'Save water' competition. The results will follow shortly. One of the flowers most associated with March is the narcissus (wild daffodil). These flowers inspired William Wordsworth to write his famous poem about daffodils: I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Find the rest of the poem and get inspired to illustrate it. You can take a photograph, use pictures from magazines, paint, draw or collage it's up to you. Pop your entries into the competition post box, outside the hall by next Tuesday morning (23.3.10), with your name and class on the back.
