This week it was the Year 2 pupil’s time to shine; they had their first fixture of the term were the boys represented ECS in rugby and the girls, in hockey. All pupils enjoyed an afternoon of competition in a mini festival, there were nerves and excitement before the starting whistles but as soon as they settled into the games they all demonstrated some encouraging play. Thank you to all the supporters who came along to cheer the pupils on.
On Wednesday the senior girls travelled to Wellington to play hockey. In the second half our ECS girls soon realised ways of working the ball around the opposition, definitely a game of two halves. The Year 5 and 6 boys welcomed Trinity and West Buckland for a triangular of rugby matches at our home pitches. It was a lovely afternoon where all three schools showed promise and there were some really closely contested matches.
A busy Thursday for all Year 3 and 4 pupils. The U8 boys competed in a tag rugby festival at St Christopher’s, the U9 boys made the journey to Mount Kelly for a rugby festival and the U8 and U9 girls hosted three hockey teams from Maynard at our home pitches at Exeter University.
A great week of sport for ECS, lots of promising performances and a lot of smiley faces when playing! Well done everyone.
