On Wednesday our Year 1 and 2 gymnastics team went to their first competition. They performed the routine they had been practicing at after school club. Before competing they got to have a turn on the ‘big’ trampolines and the gymnastics equipment.
At the end we learned that one of the Year 1 teams came 3rd overall and one of the Year 2 teams came 2nd. Well done everyone!
On Tuesday Year 5 had their first PE session at Hebburn Hub. The children practised their throwing and catching skills before Miss Barrett’s class took on Mrs Gatens’ class in a dodgeball competition!
In order to finish the sports day events we all took part in the Showcase Relays yesterday. The sun was shining so we all put our caps and suncream on and headed for the field. Following the 6 races our Sports Day winners were announced. The winners were the YELLOW team. Chloe and Tony, the team captains, collected the trophy and took it on a lap of honour. Well done everyone!
On Friday last week we all took part in Sports Day. In the morning we took part in standing long jump, target throw, welly toss (infants), howler throw and speed bounce (juniors). After lunch we all went with our friends to the junior school field for some fun relays. Unfortunately the long track was too wet for our showcase relays so we had to postpone them until the weather is better. We all had lots of fun!
Nursery B have had such an exciting day! First we had some special visitors who were very cute, lovely to hold and made us laugh lots. Then we had our sports day races in the afternoon. We were very good at the sack race, worked together on the three legged race and were super speedy during the egg and spoon race. It was so much fun and we were so fast during our races that we all won medals and trophies.
Nursery A enjoyed a fantastic morning of races on Tuesday. All the children tried their best, cheered on their friends and most importantly, had lots of fun! Everyone received a trophy for their efforts and enjoyed an ice lolly to cool off afterwards. Well done!
Report from Mr Rushton
Last Friday (16th June), 9 of our girls from years 5 and 6 made the journey to Whitburn Cricket Club to take part in a Quick Cricket tournament; this was the first time we have taken part in this all girls event for many years. It was also the first time many of these girls have played the sport properly, having only getting a little taste for it in PE lessons.
Out of the 6 teams, we came 4th after two excellent victories in our final two games after lunch. Against St Bede’s (C team) we scored 226-5 and managed to limit the opposition to 215-1. We defeated St Bede’s (B team) much more convincingly, restricting the opposition to 204-8 and scoring 236-4 ourselves. I was very impressed with some of the batting and running between the wickets from Sophie, Grace, Keavy and Lucy. I was also delighted by some of the bowling, particularly from Emily, Gracie, Emily and Armour. Brooke also took a sensational catch!
Well done to all the girls who took part. It was a lovely way to spend a sunny day, enjoyed by all!

On Friday, some of our Year 6 children took part in the Hoops 4 Health Basketball competition at Sports Central, Northumbria University. They won three of their five matches, worked excellently as a team and showed great sportsmanship! Well done for a fantastic day!
Following on from their 2nd place in the South Tyneside schoosl skipping competition the Y4 skip team travelled to Walker Dome to compete in the Tyne & Wear finals. They did very well, winning several of the individual or group dances.
