Basketball Team -the Sunderland Hoops for Health Champions
What an exciting evening we had on Friday, watching our marvellous Y5 team triumph in the Sunderland Hoops for Health final. Our first match in the semis was a tough match against St. Cuthbert's RC Primary School. It was hard fought but we won 4-2. Having watched the first half of the main match in which Newcastle played Manchester, our hearts were in our mouths as the team took to the court for the final against Barnes Juniors. They were fantastic, winning 6-0, particularly when you consider they are a small class, playing against schools which can select from up to three classes in a year group. A huge thank you goes to Mr. Ashton for arranging for the Newcastle Eagles to come into school to kick start the project and - of course - for Mr. Traves who has given up too many lunch hours to count to manage and train the team. Next we play against other winning teams from around the region. We can't wait.
Please could I politely remind parents that trainers and multi-coloured hair bows are not school uniform. Children wearing boots to school also need indoor shoes. Tailored grey trousers, culottes, skirts or dresses are all considered to be uniform.
Our choir are building up to performing more as a group in 2019 and on Monday joined other schools at Sunderland Minster for a dress rehearsal ahead of their planned involvement in the City Sings later this year. Good luck to all the children involved from Y4 to Y6 and Mrs Houston for organising.
