At the end of the sessions Ian Patchett, Teacher of PE, quizzed the pupils about what they had learnt and they were all able to convey an extensive knowledge of the key rules, skills and tactics that are used for success in Tag Rugby. Ian Patchett said “I was impressed with how engaged all of the primary pupils were, they really seemed to enjoy all of the activities.  Learning and fun – what a combination!”
