As part of European Week of Sport, St. Edward’s NS were very lucky to have Gerry Ferguson come into our school and teach us all about Tug of War.
Tug of War is a great team sport where everyone works together. Two teams are against each other in a test of strength: teams pull on opposite ends of the rope with the goal being to bring the rope a certain distance in one direction against the force of the other team’s pull.
We had competitions against different teams in our class. It was great fun when we had the boys against the girls and even the Staff against the Pupils competition.
It was really enjoyable but hard work too as we had to use all our strength to pull as hard as we could.
