We all enjoyed taking part in The Daily Mile!
Our Netball Team played in their first tournament yesterday at Temple Park. We won the first game against Ridgeway 7-0, lost the second game against Stanhope 1-0 and won the final game against Harton 2-0.
Those results meant we went through to the play-offs where we played against Lord Blyton. It was a very tight game: at full time we had drawn 2-2 and were given 2 minutes extra time. Unfortunately, they scored one more goal meaning the final score was 3-2 to Lord Blyton. We won’t be progressing to the finals but we played extremely well and Miss Archer was very impressed, as always, with our level of skill and determination. We will now be getting ready for the league matches.
Two teams of children attended a benchball tournament at Boldon school. The children worked well in their teams and were excellent representatives of our school.
Year 5 enjoyed a Handball taster session with a coach from the Newcastle Vikings Handball Team. We had a great afternoon being introduced to the skills needed to play this sport.
On Friday 7th February a Year 5 basketball team played a semi-final and a final at The Newcastle Eagles Arena. In the semi final we played Forest View and won. However during an exciting final in front the crowds we lost to St. Bede’s by one basket. We all had a great night and were a credit to the school. Well done!
Year 3 had a great afternoon at a Multiskills event at Temple Park.
We took part in lots of different game activities including a treasure hunt, skittles, throwing and catching as well as practicing our jumping skills.
On Thursday 16th January, 2 teams from Year 5 went to Temple Park to play in the Hoops for Health basketball tournament.
Team 1 won four out of their five games. The first game was 16 – 0, the second was 8 – 0, the third 3 – 1, match four 10 -0 and the final match we lost 3 – 1.
Team 2 won 3, lost one and drew one. The first game was 5 – 0, the second was 2 – 1 to the other team, the third 4 – 0, match four 2 – 2 and the final match we won 4 – 1.
Both teams got through to the quarter finals for coming second in our groups. Unfortunately, we had to play each other in this match and Team 1 won 2 – 1. This means that Team 1 have made it through to the Grand Finals which will be played at the Newcastle Eagles Community Arena on Friday the 7th February. We will play in the semi-finals before the Eagles match and then if we get through to the final, that will be played at half time in the Eagles match.
We had a great day and everyone played extremely well and showed good sportsmanship.
