It was a chilly Thursday morning as Junior Prep headed to Twickenham Stadium to watch the men’s and women’s teams from Oxford and Cambridge Universities go head to head in the annual Varsity Match.
The weather was wet and the playing conditions were tough but the Barrow Hills crew stayed warm and dry under the shelter to watch the ladies game first before exploring the museum. The children had great fun reading the facts and testing and playing on the tactile displays where they tested their speed, agility and reactions along with power and strength.
The mens match was very exciting even though there were many handling errors due to the weather.
The children were amazing, very well behaved and hopefully enjoyed the experience to not only a sporting stadium, but the home of England rugby.
Many thanks to all the teachers who came along to help and drive and to Mr Hatcher for organising.
