Tag Rugby Tournament 2021
After a tough couple of years not being able to compete against other schools (other than virtually) we really enjoyed participating in the Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby Tournament.
After coming second in our round, we went on to win Gold at the finals on 21st October at Blaydon Rugby Club, winning out of 39 competing schools.
Sports Day 2021 - Key Stage 2
What a fantastic afternoon! Great teamwork in our competitive sports.
Sport's Day - REC, Year 1 & Year 2
A fantastic morning for our sporting super stars!
Thank you Mrs Woods for Bob the ice-cream man. They were delicious!
Over the previous 6 weeks, year 5 have been participating in Bikeability Training. They had a quick skills test on our yard and then they were off around Crawcrook, maneuvering the streets safely.
Newcastle Foundation 2020-2021
September 2020 saw the introduction of the NUFC Foundation coming into school weekly to coach all of our children and upskill our staff. Every half term the skills taught in the PE change in line with the National Curriculum. These include gymnastics, cricket, dance, rugby, problem-solving, striking and fielding, and many more. We have had Coach Dave for the whole of the year and he has been a fantastic addition to our PE lessons - the children love him.
Gateshead SSP - Winter Runderland
With all of the restrictions in place due to Covid, our inter and intra sports competitions have been put on hold. We did however manage to participate in some 'bubble' competitions and completed the Winter Runderland, a month-long competition to get Rudolph and his reindeer's home in time for Christmas. The children really enjoyed taking part.
All Stars Cricket Training
For the past 6 weeks years 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been gaining some fantastic new cricket skills thanks to Coach Phil and All Stars Cricket Training. The children have really enjoyed it and have greatly improved their ability in cricket. Some of our pupils have already joined the local cricket team - Ryton Cricket Club.
Commando Joes Training
Staff thoroughly enjoyed being trained in Commando Joe's character-building PE programme - all ready to implement it in the next academic year. This scheme has some fantastic planning and resources which will assist in improving our children's problem solving, communication, teamwork and agility skills.
Inter School Competition - St Thomas More Cluster
Even though Covid has well and truly spoilt our competitive sports this last 18 months, we managed to participate in our first inter school's competitions - albeit virtually.
Year 1 & 2 competed a Quad Skills event
Year 3 & 4 competed in a Ball Skills event
Year 5 & 6 competed in a Speed, Agility and Quickness event.
