Netball Success

Well done to our two netball teams who took part in a competition at St Thomas More School. The children played 5 games of High 5 netball and had a wonderful time.

One of the teams even came second in the tournament! Well done to everyone who took part!



Great news for our Year 3 / 4 athletics, who automatically went through to the second round of the Gateshead schools competition.

The children took part in four events – long distance run, a sprint, throwing a howler and a standing long jump.

The children were fantastic and really worked hard! Congratulations to all involved!

Key Stage 1 and 2 Sports Day

Today was sports day for both Key Stages 1 and 2. The children took part in a number of different sporting activities that tested their control, stamina and many other skills. We even had a visit from three lovely ladies from Hadrians House. It was lovely to see so many smiling faces, the children really enjoyed themselves. A big thank you to Mrs Robinson, the Year 6 helpers and all who made the day successful. Go Team Stella!! IMG_9775

First two days at Newburn

Wow! What a busy first two days, Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed the activities at Newburn! Day one consisted of three teams racing  up and down the River Tyne in Bell Boats. The children especially enjoyed splashing the instructors and the teachers from school. During the afternoon, the children took part in a Judo session within the main hall of Newburn Lesiure centre. Then, they played team games such as dodgeball, cross-bar penalty shoot-out and tag.

Day two was even more exciting! Year 6 took part in wall climbing, archery and trampolining. All of the children really enjoyed all of the activites today and are looking forward to day three (the final day) tomorrow.


Cooking for Life

Nick, the chef from Cooking for life joined us this week for a morning on a Eating for Fitness.  The session involved the children taking part in some exercise and fitness activities followed by cooking a healthy chicken curry and vegetable curry.
