Year 4 Tag Rugby

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.

Little Dribblers

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.

We are top of the league!

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.


Well done boys.

Two more wins for the football team

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.

A mixed night for the school football team.

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.

2 Wins to Start the Season

Tonight saw the start of the school football teams season.


In the first game the boys beat Mortimer 3-0 with only good goalkeeping and the woodwork stopping the boys from winning by a bigger margin.


In the second game the boys played some fantastic football and SS Peters and Paul’s were unable to compete as the boys won 10-0.


Excellent football tonight boys

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…
Here is a video of the fitness challenge.

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.

Football Matches

The boys played their last fixtures of the season last week at Temple Park.  A hard fought 0-0 draw with Westoe Crown saw Josh man of the match for his performance in defence.


In the second game an early goal by man of the match Mason saw the boys run out 1-0 winners over SS Peters and Pauls.


The final league table had us finish in joint second position.  All the boys can be proud of themselves this season and I thank them and the parents for their efforts this season.
