On Thursday 3 teams took part in the South Tyneside Boccia tournament. All 3 teams won their individual groups and progressed to the semi finals. Unfortunately 2 of the teams, Harton A and Harton C, met each other in the semi final and only one could progress. In the other semi final Harton B beat Hadrian. This meant that Harton A played Harton B in the final with Harton B running out the winners. The children will now progress to the county finals.
A big congratulations to our Year 2 gymnastics team for placing 1st and 2nd in the South Tyneside schools competition.
On Saturday 10 children from Years 5 and 6 led South Shields out onto the pitch for their league game against Stalybridge Celtic. The children must have been lucky mascots as South Shields scored a last minute winner.
Years 5 and 6 had a visit from South Shields players Carl Finnigan, Dan Wright and Blair Adams today. They answered the childrens questions about playing football for the club. In addition they gave every child two tickets for the Stalybridge Celtic game on the 15th of December. 10 lucky children will be drawn at random to lead the team out on to the pitch. The captains of the school football teams were also presented with a signed copy of a strip from the club.
As part of the Tag Rugby being delivered by coaches from Newcastle Falcons the children in Y4S were invited to take part in a festival at Kingston Park, the home of Newcastle Falcons. The children had a fantastic time playing games against different schools and 1 team won every game they played.
Y4S have been learning how to play tag rugby with coaches John and Stu. They have also been teaching the children the importance of a healthy diet.
As part of Health and Wellbeing week, Year 4 created their own healthy chicken kebabs. The children selected either plain or spicy chicken, onions, peppers, red cabbage and tomatoes and placed them inside a pitta bread. It tasted delicious.
You may have noticed an exciting addition to our school grounds, our brand new running track. This track, which is 180m long, will allow all the children to take part in our 15 minutes of movement challenge all year round. We officially opened it this week and all the children have been around it with their classmates.
A fantastic performance from the boys B team, made up mostly of Year 5 children, saw them defeat Cleadon 6-1. Goals for Josh, Bailey Callum, Dylan and two for Logan capped really good team effort. Well done boys.
