Bicester Family Year 5&6 Rounders

The annual Year 5 and 6 Rounders Festival for the Bicester Family of Primary Schools took place on 27th June on a sunny Monday afternoon.  Over sixty children and seven teams from four Primary Schools including Brookside, Five Acres, Southwold and Fritwell took part. Ten Bicester student sports leaders took responsibility for umpiring and scoring the matches. They also provided guidance and encouragement throughout.

The seven teams were divided into two pools in which they played each other in a round robin format.  As the competition progressed there was a clear improvement amongst the players regarding their understanding and playing the game.  Both Five Acres teams topped their respective groups to contest the final.  Five Acres A defeated Five Acres B 6.5 -4.5 to be crowned Bicester champions 2016.  In the other play-off matches; Fritwell beat Brookside A by two rounders to claim third spot and Southwold beat Brookside B by just one rounder to clinch fifth place. 

During the event, the Spirit of the Games value of Team work was a key focus area. A player from each team was selected and presented with a special certificate in recognition of their positive attitude and enthusiasm throughout the festival.

Congratulations to all players, student sport leaders and teachers who all contributed to an enjoyable afternoon of rounders.
