Thursday 20th October.
Year 4 were up for the constellation rugby competition today and we had some sunshine for a change.
Today was some of the most competitive rugby we have had all week and was great to see just how much it means to the children at fielding.
Before break we had classes P and S and just like yesterday ended up being such a close contest, with only 2 points separating fourth place and first place. The winners in the end were Cygnus.
After the break we had some great match ups with everyone putting in 100% to try and get points for their constellation. In the end a great team effort from Hercules both F and H earned them the win. But we had a tie for second place only just behind them again highlighting just how close this week has been.
So with one day of rugby left to play with the year 3's the standings are as follows,
So very much still all to play for and looking forward to tomorrow.

Final table was...

Orion 192 points
Final day of the Fielding Rugby World Cup and thankfully the weather was good for us today. Only the Year 4's left and they all knew what was at stake. 4S Hercules kicked off their tournament with a very convincing 9-0 win over 4P Cygnus. Although 4P Cygnus had a bad start to the day, Daisy and Oona worked well together and were fantastic at encouraging the rest of Cygnus to keep going. As well as 4S Hercules starting well and in fact finishing the tournament with 3 wins they also had 2 of the tournaments most improved players in Bella and Jess. The progress both girls have made since the beginning of the term has been brilliant so well done. 4S Pegasus also had 3 wins from 3 with Millie scoring 3 great tries overall. After break time 4H and 4F came out to the hallowed Fielding turf. 4F Pegasus and 4H Cygnus both played great tournaments winning their first 2 games before playing each other in their final games. This was end to end stuff with Pegasus looking like they were going to clinch the win, but a late surge from Cygnus meant that the game finished 7-7. Both teams therefore contributed 10 points to their house's quest for the cup with Zak and Cayo from Cygnus and Pegasus respectively playing pivotal roles in their teams success. Elsewhere, Amy from 4H Orion was doing a great job in leading her team to a single victory in their final game after suffering 2 defeats.
The scores from Year 4 when the final whistle blew were...
Wednesday has finished and with that so has the Year 5's and Year 2's participation in this years house rugby tournament. This morning it was the Year 5's and they had the great fortune to play their tournament in some good old British weather. Due to the wet conditions the Year 5 games were cut from being 20 minutes long to 10 minutes in the hope that just a little bit of them would stay dry! The weather didn't bother any of the children with every house showing how much they wanted to win the first piece of silverware of the school year. Mr Thomas' and Mr Winn's score sheets didn't do so well in the rain though so although we managed to keep track of the scores we didn't manage to keep any notes of some of the fantastic rugby which was being played. So straight to the Year 5 scores.
Cygnus 29 points
Pegasus 26 points
Hercules 23 points
Orion 18 points
After lunch it was time for the Year 2's to contribute to their house's scores. Again the weather played a part in the day as we were forced to move into the sports hall. This meant that our planned modified games for Year 2 had to be modified again to fit inside. However, it did mean there was a fantastic atmosphere inside...it felt like being at Wembley with the roof closed. The games played by the Year 2's tested their ability to run with the ball and to pass the ball accurately to a team mate. After the scores of all the classes were added up they were as follows.
Cygnus 49 points
Orion 43 points
Hercules 41 points
Pegasus 37 points
Added to the scores already in the house table looked like this...
Cygnus 197 points
Hercules 182 points
Orion 171 points
Pegasus 168 points
Tomorrow is the final day of the Fielding Rugby House Cup with only the Year 4's to play. Check back Thursday after school to see who will be lifting the trophy.
It was Year 6 and Year 1 to take part in their first house tournament of the year today. Year 6 were up first this morning and they didn't disappoint by playing some great rugby. Cygnus and Hercules dominated the Year 6 games with 6H Cygnus unbeaten and scoring 23 tries in their 3 games 6H Hercules also going unbeaten and scoring 29 tries! Other teams to stand out today were 6F Pegasus who although didn't win all of their games played some great passing rugby and 6P Hercules who were so quick offloading the ball after they were tagged opposing teams really struggled to defend against them. A special mention must go to Maxi from 6H Cygnus who after being injured in the first game spent the rest of the tournament on the sidelines cheering on the rest of his team really showing the meaning of the value of the month; Unity.
Year 6 final points
Although the Year 1s were not playing actual games they took part in a competition which involved them competing against each other in modified games which tested the skills they have been learning this half term. They played 2 games which involved running with the ball and 2 games which involved trying to pass the ball. Every house did really well and hopefully we have some stars for the future.
Year 1 final points
Adding the points from today to Fridays Year 3 points means the current house table is as follows:
Good luck to Year 5 and Year 2 tomorrow!
The first house tournament of the year kicked off today with the year 3's. It was a cold start but the children knew there was a trophy on offer and were up for it. 3P and 3S were the first classes to come out to represent their houses. Hercules from 3P were being spurred on by Lottie who was displaying some great leadership skills and really driving her team on. Aidan in Orion also stood out with a great positive attitude constantly telling his team to push on. From 3S there was one young Frenchman representing Cygnus who Mr Winn claimed would be the future of French rugby; Emile played fantastically for Cygnus and helped them to 3 wins out of 3. Also with a 100% record was Pegasus from 3P, this time Matteo and Jasper running through opposition defenses.
After break time it was the turn of 3H and 3F to show what they have learnt this half term. The effort and enthusiasm from the houses in these classes was a pleasure to see. This time it was Cygnus in 3F who could not be beat, while Hercules in 3H also played a great tournament. Finlay and Joe were the stand out performers from the second half of the tournament, both displaying some great running an scoring some brilliant tries.
Day 1 over and the table is as follows:
Hercules 37 points
Cygnus 31 points
Pegasus 27 points
Orion 23 points
Over to Year 6 on Tuesday...
