This term Mrs Jones’ class have been working with Mrs Bushby to complete the Kidsafe Programme. Each week we discussed ways to keep ourselves safe. The children enjoyed playing games and carrying out little activities with the help of the Kidsafe mascot ‘KS’.
On Friday a group of Year 3 and 4 boys took part in the first ever South Tyneside football festival for children of their age. The boys were placed in a group with 6 other schools and only the top 2 would go on to the next round. In the First game against East Boldon the boys won 2-0 with Jack R and Jack D scoring the goals. In game 2 the boys beat St Aloysius B 5-0 with goal for jack D, Jack R and 3 for Logan. In game 3 the boys beat Mortimer B 3-0 with goals for Mason, Jack R and Logan. In the fourth game the boys beat Lord Blyton 2-0 with goals for Theo and Jack D. In game 5 we beat St Bede 1-0 with a goal for Theo and in the final game they beat St Joseph 4-0 with Max, Theo, Jack D and Mason getting the goals. This meant the boys had topped the group and were into the semi finals.
In the semi final against St Aloysius A the boys played very well but were unable to score a goal in normal time or extra time so we went to a penalty shoot out. Max, Mason and Logan all converted their penalties and St Aloysius missed one of theirs meaning the lads were in the final.
In the final they played Lord Blyton who they had already defeated in the group stage. Once again they were unable to score, despite hitting the bar and having a header cleared off the line, so it was down to penalties. This time the all the penaties in the shoot out were missed with Daniel twice saving Lord Blyton penalties. Jack D then stepped up to take a penalty in sudden death and he scored the winner.
The boys can all be very proud of themselves for the football they played and their sportsmanship.
Despite the rain, the workmen have managed to make the roof safe.

In Year 3 and 4 we have been connecting with other cultures. We found out that some Spanish customs and traditions at Christmas time are similar to our own. Then we made cards and baubles to reflect what our local area can look like in Winter. We will be exchanging these with a school in Spain we have connections with.
Mr Donnelly visited Wellbeing Club this week and taught the group some greetings in Spanish. Pupils played a game to reinforce the language. They will use these new skills to communicate with Spanish pupils.
