Our Pre-School children have been getting active with Little Scrummers, a company specialising in Tag Rugby themed classes. Exciting and fun as well as educational, these weekly 60-minute Physical Education sessions are non-contact and are helping the children to develop age-specific skills such as balance and co-ordination. Classes follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) guide to working with this age group, conducted by qualified RFU coaches.
Each class involves warm-up games and introduces skills such as ball passing and how to play tag rugby. The children are learning gross and fine motor skills not taught in other sports, as well as how to follow instructions and how to wait their turn.
