Best Sporting Memory

Year 3/4 Athletics

Well done to all the children in year 3/4 who competed in the athletic competition. We are pleased to announce that the result of their win means that they will be representing Newcastle in the County finals.

Family Football Course

Newcastle United Foundation are running a 6 week family football course with some children and a family member. It was the first session last night where everyone got stuck in and had a great time!
At the end of the 6 weeks, they are all going to St James Park to attend a family event!



Red Nose Day Fun

This year for Red Nose Day we all got very active and all children and staff dressed up in something red and participated in a one mile walk and a danceathon!
Here are some photos to enjoy! Thank you to all donations for this charity event!




Sporting Achievement

Last Month we took a group of children to the Newcastle Schools Cross Country Championships – and it was hugely successful.
there were some outstanding individual, and team performances.
In the year 3/4 girls race Milly finished 4th and Francesca finished 20th. The 3/4 girls team finished 10th, our highest ever finish.
The 3/4 boys race was very competitive, Johnny finished an excellent 14th place – with the boys team finishing 14th Overall, again a very good performance from all.

The year 5/6 boys race saw Wesley come in a fantastic 10th place, with Matthew only 9 places behind in 19th. The boys team finished 6th overall – our best result ever, by a distance.
The year 5/6 girls had a particularly successful race, with Lucy finishing 10 and Niaomi 16th. The girls team finished an amazing 4th Overall, missing out on a medal by just 6 points.
Well done to all who took part – our performances in sporting events are improving all the time – a direct result of the fabulous work Mrs Hales and all the staff are doing in PE lessons.
