The children waiting to run.
All the children from Year 4,5 and 6 took part in the Go Run For Fun Event. They ran 2KM around Silksworth Sports Complex with hundreds of children from other schools. The event was great fun and taught the children that running short distances can be both fun and important in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Years 3, 4 and 5 have been busy in various tennis tournaments over the past few months.

The Year 5 and 6 Hockey Team in action.
On Thursday 20th March the Year 5/6 Hockey team took part in the Sunderland Finals.
The team played four games in their group. They won their first game 3 – 0, goals coming from Akib, Vishal and Tony. In the their next game the team lost 2-0. After drawing the following game we all knew the final game was a must win to make it through to the semi- finals. A close game saw us going behind until Vishal found an equaliser. Then with only 1 minute to go Richard Avenue got the winning goal with Tony striking a great hit. We had made it through to the Semi Finals.
Although we lost 2-0 in the Semi Final, the team should be proud of making the Semi Finals and the effort that they made. Well done all!

Year 3 get tennis coaching.
Year 3 had professional Tennis coaching for a whole half term. Amy Hoburn who is based at David Lloyd came into school to teach the children new tennis skills. She introduced the children to the different shots and also began working with tennis nets to encourage and develop match skills.
The children were very lucky to go to David Lloyd Sunderland to experience the tennis courts and equipment they have. The children showed great enthusiasm on making the most of the bigger space, the extra coaches and the fantastic resources on offer.
The hall was massive and we could run around more and faster. I liked playing on a net with my partner and hitting the ball over. Amy showed me how to do a backhand shot with 2 hands which I can do now.
From these lesson we have decided upon a Year 3 Tennis Team who will represent the school at the Tennis Tournament later in the year.
