What a lovely day for our egg and spoon race challenge. It looks like the children had lots of fun!
On Saturday, over 200 children from Harton Primary attended the South Shields v Nantwich Town game. All the children had a fantastic time, despite the result, and several children were lucky enough to walk the players onto the pitch.
South Shields FC players Dylan Morse and Luke Daly visited us on Friday along with Steve Camm. They held a question and answer session with the children during assembly and invited every child in the school to come to their game against Nantwich on Saturday. They also invited several lucky children to walk the players onto the pitch as flag bearers.
On January 16th, 23 year 5 children took part in the Newcastle Eagles Hoops4Health basketball tournament. The 3 teams took part in a group stage – comprised of 6 teams per group (30 teams in total from 10 different schools).
Each team worked incredibly hard fought for every point!
Harton 1 and 2 go through to the Play-Offs, and had to face each other. With Harton 2 progressing to the final stage of the tournament, only to be beaten by Biddick Hall in a nail-biting match – losing 4:2 (2 baskets to 1).
We could not be more proud of the effort and teamwork they children displayed, and they all left both tired and thrilled with what they achieved that day.
It has been a really busy couple of weeks for the boys football teams with our school taking part in 3 different divisions.
In the Wednesday Mortimer League the boys got off to a mixed start with us out playing Monkton and somehow getting beat 3-2. In the second game a backs to the wall dsiplay by the boys saw them beat Ashley 1 nil.
In the Thursday Temple Park League the boys got off to a flying start beating Whitburn Village 5-1 and in the second game they beat Marsden 5-2. This was under the coaching guidance of Miss Smith.
In the the Thursday Biddick Hall League the boys have now completed their season. They defeated every team they played at least once and going into the final game of the season against St Gregorys R.C. the boys knew that win would win them the league. A real team performance saw the boys gradually get themselves on top and a fantastic goal from Josh put them 1 up before half time. In the second half the boys pounced on the counter attack and Logan followed up on his own good work to score the goal that won the title. Massive well done to the boys, who as always, were a pleasure to coach.
Thursday saw the start of the new football season for the boys teams and it was a step into the unknown as we have joined a new league this year playing against different schools.
In the first match the boys played against Jarrow Cross and took an early lead after Logan headed home from a corner and a couple of fantastic saves from Daniel kept the boys in the lead. Jack then made it 2 before half time with a smart finish on the turn. In the second half Jarrow pulled one back before Josh made it 3-1. In the last minute Jarrow scored their second goal but the boys held out for the win.
In the second match the boys played the host Biddick Hall and again took the lead through Logan who finished low past the keeper, Logan then grabbed his second goal of the game before setting up Bailey who made it 3-0 at half time. In the second half Biddick Hall pulled one back before Max played a 1-2 with Bailey and scored his first gaol for the team. Bailey then got on the end of a cross with a diving header to make it 5-1 before Biddick Hall pulled another goal back to make 5-2 at full time.
Well done boys.
Year 1 had a fantastic sports day, they all supported each other and were brilliant at the different races! Here are some action shots from the day.
A selection of children from Year 2 recently took part in the Skipping Festival at St. Joseph’s Academy. We were all a little nervous but the children did so well and had loads of fun! We’d like to say a huge, belated well done to the super stars that represented our school!
