Extra Curricular Activities

 

Under 21s Football - 6th October 

Some children and staff were lucky enough to attend an England v Scotland under 21s football match at the Riverside stadium. Everyone had a brilliant time and were full of energy cheering England on to their win.

Brazilian Soccer School - 22nd November 

Megan from the Brazilian Soccer Schools came into school to work with KS2 children. Everyone had a great time learning some new football skills and tricks. We are looking forward to seeing Megan again later in the year as she runs an enrichment group. 

Sports Relief – 20th March

A huge well done for all the children and staff who participated in our Sports Relief challenges. Children were amazing as they tackled the obstacle course and the mile run. It was great to see everyone supporting one another and cheering each other on. Well done everyone!

Sports Leaders Training - 21st November

Four of our year 6 children attended a sports leaders training event at Dyke House college. While there they learned all about what is needed to be a good leader and how they can become one. These children will now be our playground leaders out on the yard at break and lunch time.  

Fundraising for Hartlepool FC - 26th January 

A penalty shoot out was organised by James, one of our Year 6 children, along with Mr Akers to help raise funds for Hartlepool United. The children did really well and raised a total of £30.00 towards the club's appeal. 

Ice skating - 8th December

KS2 had a brilliant morning ice skating at Wynyard Winter Wonderland. They all had a great time on the ice - it was so lovely to see all the children grow in confidence and help one another over come their initial fears. While there the children also enjoyed a nature walk and a look around the estate. 

Dukeshouse Wood - 29th January - 2nd February

What an amazing week we’ve had at Dukeshouse Wood. Highlights include the 3G swing (more children than ever braved the top), making mud angels, jokes and marshmallows around the camp fire, leaping from the zip wire and creating the Ward Jackson shuffle at the disco. Danny said, “I loved the leap of faith because I conquered my fear of heights.” All the children were incredible – it was such a joy watching them push themselves and challenge one another every day to try something new. It is always great to have centre staff praise the children on their behaviour and attitude. We are already looking forward to going again next year.
