We have been thoroughly enjoying our Rugby sessions over the past few weeks. We have been out in all winds and weathers and returned soaking and full of mud...which is exactly how Rugby should be!
We have a coach to help us and our activities are very exciting and challenging. We have competitive exercises with tags instead of tackling. We have zones marked out to score tries and zones to kick the ball through. It is quite tricky to do this with a rugby ball and we are not very accurate yet.
We had a team trial exercise this week where we went up against each other one on one. Have a look at our videos to see how well we did!

We have been continuing our route across America this week and have been learning about Tornado Alley. The children looked at the map of the states and plotted where the most tornadoes occur. 
The class learnt how a tornado forms and watched some video clips of real tornadoes in Kansas. We discussed both the ecological and the human impact of such extreme weather and imagined how it might feel to see your home destroyed.
