10th March 2014
Over the last 3 weeks, Shapinsay Primary School has been receiving Tag Rugby from ORFC MA Mark Sinclair. It was a very active 3 weeks with lots of activity but also to learn new skills and rules of the game.
The P1-3s were first each week from 10:15am – 10:45, so the session was quick and involved lots of fun activity games such as stuck in the mud, sharks & fishes, Tag Bulldogs etc. Everyone loved the rugby and it was great to see a smile on all the kids faces while the sessions were taking place.
A couple of the participants said:
P1 boy – “I love rugby!”
P2 girl – “I want more Tag rugby!”
It was great to hear these positive comments from the pupils at the end of the last week.
The next group were the P3’s from 11-11:30am where we I was able to raise the skill level again by doing things such as ball skills, passing practice, stadium ball etc. This saw everyone within the group having to test their skills to the max but everyone did exceptionally well!
P3 boy – “I had so much fun!”
Finally was the P4-7s who once again, being the more experienced age group were able to increase the standard. I was able to bring in much more complex exercises to the group such as 6 cone grids, shuttle passing, ball skills and many more games/activities where the group had to think hard. Once again the group did not fail and stepped up to a very high standard.
The older group said:
P5 girl – “I learned lots more rules”
P6 boy – “I’m so tired but that was so fun!”
Mark Sinclair said:
“The whole school did exceptionally well and I feel this was down to the enthusiasm of all kids who were keen/willing to learn and take part in the things I was doing.
