year 5/6 Girls Football

Well done to the girls football team who took part in the Girls Gateshead U11’s tournament on Thursday. The girls showed tremendous spirit and great sportsmanship in all their games and really enjoyed themselves. Unfortunately they didn’t make it past the group stages but had some good matches.

Year 5/6 Football Team

A big well done to the boys and girls of Year 5 and Year 6 who took part in the Gateshead Regional Qualifiers for the Premier League Schools Tournament 2017. The team did brilliantly in the group stages and won their three matches 3-0, 5-0 and 5-3. This meant the team finished top of the group and saw them progress to the semi-final where they put in another fantastic performance to win 5-1! The final awaited and a game against St Mary and St Thomas Aquinas. It was a very tight game with Sacred Heart hitting the woodwork twice. Unfortunately the opposition did manage to score which made them 1-0 winners. It was an unlucky end to a great day.

It’s Competition Time!

 
At Sacred Heart, we are taking part in a Creative Writing Competition this half term, whereby the winning child will win a Living Eggs Incubator for the school. The children could also win various runner up prizes.
 
If you are interested, we are asking children to submit a piece of creative writing; such as a short story (300 words max) or a poem (70 words max). Entries are to go to Miss Bray by Monday 19th February 2018, with winners announced on Tuesday 20th February 2018.
 
The writing could be on anything you like, although we think Easter, Spring and New Life are all fantastic themes.
 
Get writing!
 
 
 

Snow Day

What a beautiful day! The sun is shining, the ground is pure and white, we could not miss this opportunity to think of some amazing things that we could write to describe our surroundings!

Christmas Party Day

On Wednesday, Year 5 had their Christmas party day. We had a great day doing Christmas activities, competing in an end of 2017 quiz, dancing and singing in the hall at our very own disco and then finishing off with a delicious buffet of food provided by the friends. A great day was had by all. Thanks again to the friends for helping out and Year 6 for joining in the festive fun with us. Merry Christmas everyone!

Mini Vinnies Food Collection

Thank you to all the school community who donated food for our collection this Autumn term. The Mini Vinnies have been collecting all the food and making a note of the items donated from each class. The winning class was Year 3 with 52 items donated who will now receive an extra break in the final week of term. Well done! The Mini Vinnies met Frances on Friday morning who collects food for Stanley Food Bank. We brought all the food over to Church where we helped Frances count and move the food into her car to drop off. This will make a real difference to lots of families this Christmas.

Christmas Celebration Concert

Well, that’s a wrap on our Christmas Celebration Concert 2017. Well done to all the children, who have represented our school so beautifully today, and have worked their socks off over the past few weeks in order to prepare our Advent concert for friends, families and parish alike.

Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate Advent with us. Sacred Heart, as a staff, hope that you have enjoyed the event, which some Governors and parents have kindly called our best concert yet. A huge thank you to Miss Cook for all her hard work with the graphics, and congratulations are due to every single child for braving the season’s coughs and sneezes to perform with their hearts and souls.

The children of Y1 performed wonderfully as our Nativity characters and our Y5/6 soloists did an excellent job. What fantastic voices!

Well done everyone. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Miss Bray

Plant-a-thon round 2!

Absolutely massive thank you to the two parents that came to help us plant some more of our trees today, even in the pouring rain. Katie (REC), Grace (REC) and Daisy (Little Hearts) have each been given 5 dojos for their parents hard work. Thanks again to everyone that has been involved, whether that was by digging holes or my donating bulbs. It’s great to have such a supportive family community.

Lots of thanks,
Eco council

Captain Cook theme lunch

Today we got to try some Australian food in our Captain Cook themed lunch! Our kitchen staff did a great job at preparing some delicious meals that the children, and some parents, in year 5 absolutely loved! The kangaroo burger was definitely a firm favourite.

Children in Need 2017

Today everyone in year 5, including Miss Reid and Mrs Robinson Crow, brought in their teddy bear for our teddy bears picnic! While the children were in lessons this morning the teddy’s all sat at the back of our class and watched as we learned.

During lunch we all sat together with our picnics! We raised a total of £30 which is amazing, well done year 5!
