P5 ruby festival!

P5 had a tag rugby festival at Tranent rugby playing fields. It was really fun.

Lots of schools from around East Lothian took part. We played lots of fun games like sharks and fishes, tackle the pads and some matches against other schools.

Many said “That was so much fun. I would love to do it again.”

Tag rugby is a really fun game that many children really enjoy. The key is to pass and steal tags. If you can, try and score a point!!!

The aim of the game in sharks and fishes is to be able to cross the bank of grass with out being caught by a catcher.
The next game is tackle the bag, in this game you have a partner that holds a tall, sponge bag and what you have to do is run up to it and tackle it to the floor, in this game I would tackle it down low and turn your head to the side so you won’t wack your face on the foam tackle bag.
In the next game ball kick, you will need to place a ball on top of a cone and then you need to kick it very hard to get it over the goal post, a good tip for this is to try to kick the cone but instead of the cone coming of the ground the ball will go flying over the goal post.
And the last game is bag push, in this game you will need a partner to hold a foam bag and the other partner will try and push their partner and
