A team of 10 year 6 children made the trip to Gateshead Stadium on the 8th October to take part in the huge Northumberland SAA competition. It was a very muddy route which included a steep hill and was over a mile long. The ten children ran fantastically well and were a credit to the school.
Well done to Aidan who came 9th out of over 200 runners!
Tonight the boys team played against Ovingham Middle School’s U11 football team in the county cup. The first half was very competitive and finished 1-1. Unfortunately, the Ovingham team played some wonderful passing in the second half and – despite some great defensive efforts – Ovingham won the game 5-1.
Today was the launch of the new Year 6 Playground Leaders. On Mondays and Tuesdays there will be a KS1 and KS2 personal challenge led by the children. Tuesday-Friday there will be a weekly game running. Look out for your leaders wearing high visibility vests. Get active and get involved!
Tonight the u11 boys played in the first round of the ESFA cup. This is a national competition with 5 teams of which the top two went through.
The first game was a 2-0 win over Kingston Park with goals from Ben and a tremendous performance from Ed up front.
Secondly, we played St. Oswald’s where impressively the boys scored 4 goals for a 4-1 win. Jack and Aidan were super tight in defence, Ethan made two fantastic saves from goal and Bobby bagged his first goal of the season.
The last two games were narrow losses despite fantastic midfield performances from Ed and Alfie and an impressive goal keeping performance by Pedro.
The first two fantastic wins meant that the boys finished second out of five teams to go on to the next round!
The games will be played at Riverside on Monday 7th October.
