On Monday 13th of February 50 pupils from Year 4 took part in a tag rugby tournament at Kingtson Park. This tournament was organised by Newcastle Falcons who have been coming in to school every week to work with all the children in Year 4. The children had a great time and won every game they played against different schools.
This half term the children in the nursery have been visited by the staff from The Foundation of Light. All the children are taking part in Little Dribblers sessions and as you can see they are clearly enjoying themselves.
Last week the schools football teams played 4 games. On Wednesday our B team, which included several Year 5 children making their debuts, played Mortimer Year 6 team and lost 6-1. In the second game they beat SS Peters and Pauls 2 -0 .
On Thursday night the A team played a top of the table clash against St Oswalds. A fantastic performance saw the boys win 1-0 with a goal from Mason. In the second game of the night the boys ran out 2-0 winners over Mortimer with another goal for Mason and a superb strike for Luke.
On Thursday the boys played two more league fixtures at Temple Park.
In the first game they over came a good Westoe Crown team 2-0 with goals fromHarrison and Owen. The man of the match Jay was outstanding at the back.
In the second game they beat the previously unbeaten Marsden team 2-0 with only a superb goal keeping display preventing as much higher score. Goals for Mason and man of the match Harrison sealed the win. Once again the boys played some fantastic football.
The boys played two fixtures last night at Mortimer.
In the first game the boys played some fantastic football and ran out 3-1 winners over a good Ashley Primary School team. Goals for Harrison, Luke and man of the match Mason meant the boys came out on top.
In the second game the boys continued to play some lovely football but were not able to compete physically with a much larger Westoe Crown team and lost the game 4-0. The boys were better than the score line suggests and only good goal keeping and the woodwork prevented them from scoring. Man of the match was Jay.
Year 4 had to put their heads together to come up with a skipping routine they could teach to other children in the yard. Their chosen routine has definitely improved their fitness, in Week 4 of the Fitness Challenge.
Will they win the prize for the best routine this week? I wonder…
The Year 6 Team (photo taken after tournament, so they look tired)
At Harton Technology, 8 of our year 6s took part in the Hoops4Health tournament. We played all morning, taking part in 4 games ourselves and then staying to watch the finals between St. Aloysius and St. Bede.
We had a great morning, some grumbling aside. Can’t wait for the next Year 6s to take part in 2017.
