Our Rugby World Cup week kicked off on 21st September!
To celebrate this exciting event, our classes each 'adopted' a country taking part, and learnt all about that country during the week. They might have learnt about the flag, the language, traditional dance, culture, history, made some food and so forth.
Everyone had a go at and had lots of fun playing rugby too, with a mid-week tournament officiated by Mr Newton and Mr Fox.
Then on Friday we 'travelled around the World' with everyone given a passport and visiting Argentina, Japan, Samoa, South Africa, Fiji, Australia...what a long trip! In each country children did quizzes and found out interesting facts, as well as sometimes trying the food! BBC Radio Cambridgeshire also visited us and the Ely Standard covered the fun (you can listen to the feature and read the story in the 'We're in the News!' section of 'Our School').
Our thanks to Mrs Pearce and Miss Crack for organizing our exciting Rugby World Cup week!
