Leeds Rhinos Rugby

Years 1, 2 and 3 have been taking part in weekly Rugby lessons with Vila, our Leeds Rhinos coach, who has also been running a lunchtime club for children in Years 4, 5 and 6. The children have learned a range of different skills and some of them are well on their way to becoming very accomplished Rugby players. Keep up the hard work everyone!
