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.
On Wednesday 9th December, some year 1 and year 2 children entered a gymnastics competition at South Tyneside Gymnastics Centre. We all had lots of fun. If your child is interested in gymnastics, mixed sessions run Monday-Friday 4-5pm and 5-6pm at Temple Park Leisure Centre. Contact www.stgym.co.uk
Today we have a visit from some Newcastle Eagles players, to give us our Hoops4Health Roadshow come to school today. They explained to use the importance eating right, exercising to stay fit, the dangers smoking has to our health and basketball activities.
We have learned a lot about being healthy. To reward us for our hard work, the Newcastle Eagles coaches gave each child a for free entry to their next home match on the 11th of December at Sport Central. Parents even get in for a discounted price, using the instructions on the ticket.
