The school football team have taken part in the Air Quality MEM League over the last 4 weeks and on Thursday 12th of October played their final match. The team won every match they played and won the league. The children showed great team spirit and resilience. They have now qualified for a cup tournament where they will play against the top teams from the other leagues in South Shields. Well done!
On Wednesday 19th September, Years 5 and 6 were visited by the Newcastle Eagles basketball team. They came as part of the ‘Hoops4Health’ roadshow and we had 4 different sessions which taught us about keeping healthy.
We did some basketball drills which showed us how important physical exercise is; we learned about our heart and how to keep it healthy by keeping active; we looked at peer pressure, the reasons for it (both positive and negative) and how we can deal with these situations in our own lives and we also looked at nutrition and how to make sure we are feeding our bodies the right things.
We had a fantastic time and learned a lot.
To celebrate National Fitness Day, pupils across the country were encouraged to move for 10 minutes at 10 am. We certainly enjoyed our ‘active break’ from lessons which got our feet moving and our hearts pumping!
Year 4 children enjoyed their sports day!
On 22nd March, 30 children from Year 3 went to Temple Park to take part in a Multi-Skills Festival.
We had the opportunity to practise skills such as, dribbling with a football; throwing and catching; standing long jumps; chest pushes with a weighted ball and relay races.
Each event was scored and our Biddick A and B teams both scored 84 points, meaning we were placed in joint 3rd position.
It was a really fun morning and a great opportunity to add some exercise to our day.
Our behaviour and attitude throughout the whole morning was excellent and Miss Archer said it was a pleasure to take us there.
