We were split into different groups where we then played Ugborough, Shaugh prior, Yealmpton, Manor and Woodlands. We drew all of our games except one, which we lost against Woodlands 1-0.

Cohen all went to the Ivybridge Community College to play a football tournament against 11 other schools. Our first match was against Modbury, we were all nervous about playing our first game. With some tricky moves from the other side we defended to the best of our ability with us scoring a goal by Jake . We then played Yealmpton A with us unfortunately losing one- nil. With our high spirits we went into our next game against Woodlands. Our Goalie- Cohan was very focussed when the other team attempted a goal. The defence were hot on the opposition heels. After we had we finished our games we all had a rest and some of us had fun playing with the school football. After that they announced who the winners are in first place was manor, second was Yealmpton and third was the Erme.
The Erme were really excited to take part in Sport Relief 2018. The money raised by the children will be spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.
The sports council came up with lots of ideas on how to raise money for this worthy cause. On the 23rd of March, everyone in school including teachers dressed up as a sportsman whilst donating a £1. Our sports councillors offered their face painting talents to the school. All the children brought in coppers to create a mile around the playground. both KS1 and KS2 playgrounds.
We really appreciate your support and hope that you had fun helping our school to raise lots of money for Sport Relief!
