The children showed an excellent understanding of the rather intricate laws of the game of Rugby, particularly the offside rule, and managed to apply these to game situations. In game situations the children had ample opportunities to peer and
self-evaluate their performance and gain a deeper understanding of how to make progress.

In Step To The Beat the children devised their own circuit and learnt about a new and exciting way to exercise.
