Sporting Activities

    Well done to our football team who represented Sacred Heart at the Gateshead under 11's tournament. The team played four group matches and won three out of four (3-2, 2-0, 2-0) to secure second place and progress into the semi-finals. The semi finals against Front Street was a great success with a 1-0 lead taken at the start of the game (courtesy of Archie) which was defended until the final whistle. The final came next and a match up against local rival St Mary's, Whickham. The team battled well but unfortunately lost the match 3-0. The team had a great time and brought back a lovely runners up trophy which we are all proud of!

Our Netball team took part in the Gateshead Schools Netball tournament at Gateshead Leisure Centre. The children played amazingly well to come second out of 12 schools. They were beaten by 1 goal in the end.  Well done everyone!

8 children from Year 4 and Year 5 went to Whickham Comp to play in a basketball tournament.

We played 4 matches and although we didn't win we tried really hard and had fun along the way!

The children has a brilliant time in July as they took part in a Year 5 Kwik Cricket competition at Gateshead Fell Cricket Club. The children were split into two groups; each group up against three other teams. This meant that Sacred Heart had six matches in total. They won three and lost three but scored impressively in each game which meant they finished second overall! 

image1In June, seven talented girls went to Kingsmeadow Community School. We went to play netball again two schools which were really good. We went up against St Marys and Kibblesworth. We lost our first game against Kibblesworth and won our second against St Marys. In the first game, the amazing Ava scored 1 goal against 3 goals (3-1) and that lost the game for us. On our second game, we won 2-0 thanks to the epic Sassy and the amazing Jessica. Both the schools we played had 1 or 2 boys on their team and they were very good as well.

On Tuesday 7 June, seven talented girls went to Kingsmeadow Community School. We went to play netball against three other schools which are really good. We went up against Dunston Hill B, Whickham Front Street and Dunston Hill A. We won our first game against Dunston Hill A, drew our second against Whickham Front Street and lost our third game against Dunston Hill B. In the first game, the amazing Sassy Laws scored 2 goals against 1 goal (2-1) and that won us the game. On our second game, we drew one all (1-1) thanks to Ava Laws. Then we lost our last game witch was 3-5 to  Dunston hill A but they were a very hard game to play and they were very tall. All the schools we played had 1 or 2 boys on their team.

 

image142 children across Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 represented Sacred Heart at the Go Run For Fun (GRFF) Event at Saltwell Park today. This unique event provides children with the opportunity to participate in a ‘fun run’ style format, replicating the atmosphere of the mini, junior and indeed senior, Great North Runs with an emphasis on participating in exercising for fun. Pupils ran, jogged or walked a course of approximately 1 mile. Emily Clayton said “Today I had a great time at the fun run, which took place at Saltwell park. We ran one mile through the park with hundreds and hundreds of children running alongside us . By the end of the run everyone was tired and desperate for a drink -even Miss Barker! It was a good experience and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves”.

Year 4/5 had a great time at Burnopfield Cricket Club. The children have been having specialist P.E. cricket coaching for the last few weeks with coach Phil. As part of the coaching, the children went down to the club to see a full size cricket pitch and the modern facilities on offer. The children carried out batting and fielding exercises and finished with some games of Kwik-Cricket. Everyone had a great time with some children keen to attend the under 11s training that night! Burnopfield cricket club is always keen for new young cricketers so please take your children along if they have enjoyed the coaching.

 

IMG_0998-150x150Bike Ability: The children in Year 5/6 carried out their Bike Ability training on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 June. Bikeability is ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. There are three Bikeability levels, with each level designed to help improve their cycling skills, no matter what they know already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees on a journey from the basics of balance and control, all the way through to planning and making a journey by themselves on busier roads. Children will typically start Bikeability lessons once they have learnt to ride a bike. Level 1 will help new riders to control their bike before they move on to developing on-road skills at Level 2. Level 2 is usually tackled by children in Years 5 or 6, before they leave primary school. The children all worked really well to complete level 1 and 2 ensuring that they are as safe as possible when they hit the road on their bikes.
