Boys Football

The A team got their season of to a flying start when they played their first fixtures of the season at Temple Park on Thursday. In the first game they beat Mortimer 9 – 2 with goals by Taylor (3), Harry (3) Leighton (2) and a wonder goal from Josh who ran the length of the pitch and beat 4 players to score.

In the second game of the night the boys beat Simonside 8 – 0. Goals by Taylor (2), Harry, Leighton (2), Bailey (2) and an excellent free kick by Charlie.

All the boys were excellent and can be proud of their performances and how they represented the school.

Year 5 working with Coach Calvin

On Friday, Year 5 had our first visit from Coach Calvin of the Newcastle Eagles.

We started by playing a listening and reflex game. We had to clap at the same time as Calvin. If we did not clap, or clap when he did not, we were out. Our winners were Daniel, Peter and Jenni. He taught us a very important lesson for this game: “Be quick, but don’t hurry!” Meaning do a task quickly but if we hurry, we will make mistakes. This was important in our next drills.

We learned there are 2 types of passes – chest and bounce – and how to jump stop and pivot our feet. We completed races and teams were awarded points for winning, but not always. In our last race, the winners were a team who took their time and their form was neat.

We look forward to our visit from the Newcastle Eagles players next week!

Year 6 Hockey

For the past four weeks, year 6 have been having fun learning to play hockey with a coach. They’ve learned to dribble, stop and pass the ball, and are beginning to play small sided games.

Boys Football Team

The boys B team, made up mostly of Year 5 children, played their first ever games on Wednesday the 10th. In the first game the boys came from behind to beat Cleadon 4-1 with Bailey scoring three and Josh the other, with the help of a deflection. In the second game the boys went down 4-0 to Ashley but were unlucky not to get at least 1 goal. The boys played some really good football and can be proud of their performances against Year 6 children.

Girls Football

After successfully introducing our first ever girls football team last year, we have added a second team this year and they both played their first games of the season on Thursday 27th of September.
Team A took on Marsden in the first game and won 1-0 with Soraya scoring the only goal of the game. In their second game against Toner Avenue the girls won 2-1 with Soraya again scoring both the goals.
Team B beat Biddick Hall 2-0 in their first game with Kya and Lyla scoring the goals and then drew 1-1 with Mortimer after Megan had put them in the lead.
A massive well done to all the girls who took part.

The next fixtures will be played at Mortimer on the 6th of November.

Sports Leaders.

Today the some of the pupils in year 5 were trained up to become sports leaders.

They all worked really hard to develop their confidence, teamwork and communication skills to be able to work with a range of children within the school.

They are going to make super leaders we can’t wait to see them ‘lead’ in September!
