Last week was a football tournament between a number of local schools. In about November rocket boy came home from school with a letter asking if he wanted to sign up for this. But it didn’t really explain how it worked or when it would be. I guess they assumed that everyone already knew that! For example I had to ask some of the other parents if it was during school time or not!
The team lists got put up in school a couple of weeks ago, along with the fixture times. The teams were organised by gender and class/age. All the boys except for one in rocket boy’s class had signed up, but none of the girls. They played two games and lost both of them, but everyone enjoyed themselves. And as it was sunny and dry, and felt like spring was nearly here, it was quite pleasant to stand by the side of the pitch and watch them!
