The LPESSN (London PE and Sport School Network) held some events to celebrate Women in Sport. Girls from the federation took part in American Football and Boxing.
On Monday some of us went to learn how to play American football. First we learnt what the people were called and we played. I was partnered up with someone from another school. It was tricky at first. I think we should play more of it in the school and I am sure other children in the school will enjoy it, but during it we needed to use tags as barging at each other is not allowed. We learnt how to kick the ball over the cross bar. It was the best day and we were given badges.

We went to Bacon’s college to play American Football. We were in two teams. The first team was attacking and the other team had to defend. We had so much fun it was the best day. We also did some warm ups and other games. We had tags around our waists—the other team had to get them.
At the end of playing football the lady gave us badges.
