Many thanks to all the parents and children who supported Rainbows this evening, along with around 10,000 people.
Many thanks go to all the children who have helped to produce the giant guy for the Rainbows Firework Event on Saturday at Leicester Racecourse.
The winning design for the face came from Kenshi and Lyla I and Clara T were runners up.
Will A (Year 5) won the naming competition with ‘Fluffy’!
Thanks also go to all the children who have bought flashing merchandise this week in support of Rainbows.
I hope to see some of you at the event on Saturday. If you do attend please come and join Keshi and Will on the stage, when they formally light the bonfire.
Year 5 have been playing Dice Digits today.
In the challenge you have to take turns with your partner rolling a die and filling in your scorecard. When all spaces are filled you add up the numbers and the nearest to 1,000 (without going over) wins that round.
Have a go at home, but think carefully about where you put the numbers, as it will affect your final total. What are the best tactics?
The U10A team won a close fought contest at home against Maidwell Hall.
Our opponents were the strongest tacklers we have faced so far this term and we had to work hard to match their aggression and competitive spirit.
I was delighted with our performance as we worked hard in defence, with contributions all across the field. Our attack also operates well, with good running, solid passing and very few wasted opportunities.
We scored six tries to their two which does not reflect properly the quality of Maidwell’s play. Our tries came from Jacob (3), Henry, Omar and Seb.
Well done to Ethan and Seb who came on as substitutes.
Man of the Match Award went to Jacob, for his powerful runs and strong defence.
All the Year 6 boys are currently taking part in a rugby training day at Warwick School.
They are rotating around the skills stations.
This afternoon they will take part in a rugby festival, playing four matches against other visiting schools.
The U10 A team put in a super performance away at Bilton to record a 25-5 victory.
There were tries from Henry (2), Louie (2) and Jacob but valuable contributions from everyone in attack and defence.
It was a closer game than the score suggests but strong tackling and sound organisation kept Bilton down to just one try.
Twenty seven of the Year 5 and 6 boys are currently enjoying a coaching clinic with Leicester Tigers.
They met Dominic Ryan, a Tigers flanker, for a Q&A.
Later on we will be going to the Tigers v Exeter Premiership match at Welford Road.
