Today Year 5 traveled to Saltwell Park - equipped with shocking pink t-shirts and fluorescent laces - for their mile-long run around the park. Running alongside schools from across the whole of Gateshead, the children performed tremendously and (most importantly) had a fantastic time.
Year 5 were extremely excited this morning as they were taking part in a Judo taster session in the school hall. Equipped with a Judo Gi, they learned some basic clinches, takedowns and holds to control their opponent. Hopefully this session might have inspired a future Team GB athlete!
After school today, children from Years 3 and 4 participated in the Striking and Fielding event at St Thomas More. With Miss Melton there to inspire the team to a 3rd place finish, the team performed admirably and showed off all their skills to the full!
