This afternoon the whole school took part in a range of sporting activities for our annual sports afternoon. A great time was had by all. Well done to everyone in St Aidan house (green) who were our overall winners with 126 points. Thank you to all parents and carers who came along to support the event and a big thank you to Mr Hogg and the sports leaders from St Cuthbert’s who helped with all activities.
What a day! Today some of Year 5 took part in the final of the DDMIX by Dame Darcey Bussell competition. During the spring term Year 5 have been working really hard in their PE lessons rehearsing a line dance for the competition and were chosen as one of 12 schools to take part in today’s final. Unfortunately Year 5 didn’t win the competition however they had a fantastic time and gave their a fantastic performance in front of Dame Darcey, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Newcastle and an audience full of supportive friends and family. Miss Beggan, Miss Davidson, Miss Patterson and Mrs Barrett accompanied the children and were all extremely proud of them all. Well done Year 5 we think you are stars!
Tonight 10 children from key stage 2 took part in the Catholic Schools Cross Country Competition. Everyone was fantastic and Miss Davidson and Miss Gallagher were extremely proud of all runners, they were brilliant ambassadors of our school. Thank you to all the families who came along and supported all our runners. Well done everyone!
Last half term Year 5 entered the Dance Fitness by Dame Darcey Bussell competition. They had been working incredibly hard perfecting their line dance routine and today we found out that after watching their entry Dame Darcey Bussell has chosen them to take part in the final on Saturday 15th June. Everyone is very excited and very proud of Year 5. Good luck in the final!
This afternoon our newly formed under 9 football team took part in a tournament against other catholic primary schools. The team played fantastically in all of their games, taking away one win and finishing in fourth place in their group. Well done to all players and a big thank you to those parents who came along to support the team.
On Monday and Tuesday a group of Year 5 children worked on their cycling skills with the Bikeability team. They worked on enhancing their skills learnt previously in Year 4 and applied this to cycling on the road. The children were praised by all instructors on their fantastic hard working attitudes and their outstanding behaviour!
