The boys football team.
Football. A team of boys represented the school in a football festival at the Sunderland Beacon of Light this week. They performed very well, scoring some great goals and showing determination. Well done all! Special mentions to Arafaat for being selected as the player who showed the best attitude from all the schools taking part and to Lucas, who was identified as a player with talent and was invited to attend the Foundation of Light’s development programme.
Cricket. Some of Year 4 took part in a cricket festival at Eppleton Cricket Club this week, developing their skills in bowling, batting and fielding. They focused on technique and also learned about the role of wicket keeper. It was a great morning during which we spotted some cricket talent for next year’s tournaments. Who knows, we may well have the next Ben Stokes in the making!

Quadkids. Well done to the Year 5/6 Quadkids Athletics Team who finished 6th out of 19 schools in this week’s competition. They completed in: long jump, howler throw, 75m sprint and a 600m run. Huge well done to Mehreen, who was the overall girls winner from 76 girls in the long jump competition!

The children with the players including Jermain Defoe.
Due to their sporting achievements and attitudes in PE last term, 12 children were selected for a special visit to watch the Sunderland vs Doncaster Rovers football match at the Stadium of Light.
Along with Mr Spoors and Miss Scott, the children had a visit around the stadium, played football in the Beacon of Light and even got a photo with some players, including Jermain Defoe.
The children had the amazing opportunity to go onto the pitch and wave the flags for when the players entered onto the pitch to start the game, in front of 38,000 people.

We had a wonderful match day experience, despite the result, and the staff at the Stadium praised their fantastic behaviour.

The Year Two and Three boys football team went to Silksworth Sports complex to take part in a football tournament.
They played 5 games. After losing the first game 1-0 the boys showed great determination to improve their performance. The next game they drew 0-0. After this the team went on a winning streak and won the next 3 games including a 4-0 victory.

Lucas and Miguel managed to get 2 goals each throughout the day with Ishaaq on top form and getting himself 4 goals. Well done all!
The school football team.
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.
I think is one of the best places to buy this drug, but it’s also important that your doctor tells you what exact dosage you need. Especially if you have bronchial asthma, and the spasms are recurring, as a doctor I would not recommend to choose your dosage on your own.

And finally, six children from Years 3 and 4 went to Raich Carter Centre for the Sunderland hockey finals. The team played 5 matches and won 3, eventually coming runners up in their group.

A great effort by everyone. Well done!
