Well done to our amazing Year 4 skippers who have won 13 medals at the skipping finals this afternoon.
Yesterday we qualified for County Netball Finals at Whitburn Academy beating Biddick Juniors 2-0, St Oswalds 2-0, Mortimer 1-0 and being beaten 3-1 by Stanhope Primary in a tough competition. The children showed fantastic skill and sportsmanship throughout the competition. Well done St Aloysius – county Finals here we come.
On Wednesday our Year 1 and 2 gymnastics team went to their first competition. They performed the routine they had been practicing at after school club. Before competing they got to have a turn on the ‘big’ trampolines and the gymnastics equipment.
At the end we learned that one of the Year 1 teams came 3rd overall and one of the Year 2 teams came 2nd. Well done everyone!
In order to finish the sports day events we all took part in the Showcase Relays yesterday. The sun was shining so we all put our caps and suncream on and headed for the field. Following the 6 races our Sports Day winners were announced. The winners were the YELLOW team. Chloe and Tony, the team captains, collected the trophy and took it on a lap of honour. Well done everyone!
On Friday last week we all took part in Sports Day. In the morning we took part in standing long jump, target throw, welly toss (infants), howler throw and speed bounce (juniors). After lunch we all went with our friends to the junior school field for some fun relays. Unfortunately the long track was too wet for our showcase relays so we had to postpone them until the weather is better. We all had lots of fun!
Report from Mr Rushton
Last Friday (16th June), 9 of our girls from years 5 and 6 made the journey to Whitburn Cricket Club to take part in a Quick Cricket tournament; this was the first time we have taken part in this all girls event for many years. It was also the first time many of these girls have played the sport properly, having only getting a little taste for it in PE lessons.
Out of the 6 teams, we came 4th after two excellent victories in our final two games after lunch. Against St Bede’s (C team) we scored 226-5 and managed to limit the opposition to 215-1. We defeated St Bede’s (B team) much more convincingly, restricting the opposition to 204-8 and scoring 236-4 ourselves. I was very impressed with some of the batting and running between the wickets from Sophie, Grace, Keavy and Lucy. I was also delighted by some of the bowling, particularly from Emily, Gracie, Emily and Armour. Brooke also took a sensational catch!
Well done to all the girls who took part. It was a lovely way to spend a sunny day, enjoyed by all!
