The Year 6 football team played in a 6 aside tournament at Silksworth. While there the team played brilliantly and football being football, won some and lost some.

The Year 5 basketball team went to the Hoops 4 Health Sunderland finals. This followed on from coaching given to them by Newcastle Eagles. They didn’t win the finals but put up a remarkable account of themselves being 5 foot underdogs.
