Cross Country at Preston Park
On Monday 8th October a number of pupils from St Patrick’s school went to Preston Park to compete in a cross country event. The race, which was for children between years 4-6, was two miles long.
Overall, we did very well. Out of the twelve children that competed, four managed to progress to the next round which is at Stewart’s Park.
Well done to all those who represented our school.

Cross Country Blog
On Monday 24th September, a group of people went to Our Lady and St Bede to do a cross country run. We all had lots of fun representing our school and enjoyed ourselves.
We walked to St Bede with Mr Fletcher and Mrs Ferguson. Once we got there, we saw lots of children doing warmups with their friends so we decided to do the same. Then it was time for the year 4 boys to show what they’re made of and they all did really well! Later, after our girls had raced, it was time for the year 5s, and once again they all did really well! Now it was the year 6’s turn, Jack and Miller were up. We both tried our very best, unfortunately Miller didn’t get through but Jack got through.
So all together it was a really good day! Thank you to Mr Fletcher and Mrs Ferguson for taking us.

On Wednesday we had a football tournament at Stockton town football club on the 2nd of April we won our group and only conceded 3 goals.
We won 1-0 in our first game, then we won 4-0, and in our final game in our league we won 2-0
We got to the quarter final it was 1-0 to us. But they scored and it was penalties, whoever scored and the other team missed they would win. Luckily, Harry saved it and then Ellis scored to win us the match.
In the semi-final, we were 2-0 up but they scored 2 very good goals it was penalties our first was missed but Harry rescued us again with another 2 great saves. We had got to the final! This was nerve-racking. But, we won 5-0 we were so proud of our self. We had won the gold medal! This was the best day ever!

Lee Stephenson Cup Competition
St Patrick’s Lower Junior football team recently represented the school at the Lee Stephenson cup competition at Middlesbrough’s training ground. They played against 9 other qualifying schools from the Tees Valley area. Our goalkeeper, Henry, wants to share his diary of the days events.
Today was a great day for the Y3/4 football team as we went to Rockliffe Hall for a tournament. Bobby, Ellis, Tommy, Joseph, Michael Miller and I (Henry) got on a mini bus that would take us to our destination. when we arrived We were told our dressing room and got ready.
Then, we walked into the 3G pich where we were assigned a member of the Boro under 18 team, we were assigned Connor Malley, a left winger. Next we had a tour of the facilities.
First, we saw the restaurant sadly there weren’t any parmos on show! After that, we saw the dressing room, Valdes had a lot of gloves on show, and there was also was an ice bath and a hot tub. Opposite was the boot room. As we were going out, I spotted Fabio he let us chat. Then we made our way back. We also met Gaston, Dimi and Chambers.
We made our way back and started our training session. I was in goal as I am the team’s keeper. We practised shooting and the Y3s beat the Y4s. Then we had our lunch and our manager, Mr Fletcher, gave us a quiz.
It was time for the big stuff, the tournament! We didn’t play in the first round of fixtures but when we played, we played in style. Our first game was against Teesville which we won 1-0 a Joseph wonder strike from the half way line. In the dying seconds, I (Henry) saved us with a 2 on 1 bottom left hand save. First game, 3 points in the points tally.
Second game a comfortable 4-0 win Joseph (2), Michael and Ellis on the score sheet. Following with a 2-0 win over Bewley with two goals from Ellis. Then last game of the group stage was a tough 2-0 win over Acklam Whin, Joseph scoring both the goals. This assured a semi-final for St. Patrick’s.
In the semis, despite going a goal down twice we rose again with a 3-2 win. Michael, Ellis and Miller, with a cool penalty, were the scorers!
Now the FINAL we have has worked so hard fore. St Patrick’s v Acklam Whin!
The premier league handshake started proceedings and Acklam Whin kicked off to a roar from the crowd.
In the first minute, Acklam went 1 up which was closely followed with a rocket from the half way line by Joseph. Then another St. Patricks goal by a Michael run from the back 2-1! Again, Michael went on a run, this time ending in a tap in for Ellis! 3-1 but very quickly we conceded another goal, 3-2. Straight away Joseph scored a fantastic final goal to finish the scoring at 4-2.
With the final few seconds left, St Patrick’s were passing the ball around nicely when the final whistle went. We were the champions!! The Y3/4 footy team had won it!
We are so privileged to have won. As we heard our name as champions, we got up and Joseph, the captain, got the chance to lift the cup and celebrate the dream day!
Many, many thanks to MFC Foundation, Rockliffe hall, our manager Mr Fletcher and all those who made this possible.
Swimming Gala 2017
On Thursday 16th March 2017 the Year 5 and 6’s went to a Swimming Gala at Billingham Forum to represent the school at the Sports partnership event. There were many strokes such as: breast stroke (Poppy and Sophie C), front crawl (Bridie, Isaac, Archie and Sophie L), back stroke (Korbyn and Grace) and butterfly (Isaac).
While we were waiting nervously the instructor told us all of the rules. First to race was Grace, we all cheered for her but sadly she didn’t win a medal (there was some tough competition). In their surprise, Isaac won two bronze medals and Archie won one silver medal. We were all very happy with our performances.

On Tuesday 10th January, a group of Y5/6 childrenwent out to Stockton Town Football Club for a qualifying tournament, Bethany, Molly, Rebecca, Holly, Grace, Amy, Annie and Megan were all party of our team and we were determined to do our best. When we got inside, the head leader talked about the rules and expectations of the day. We weren’t playing for the first round of matches so Mr Fletcher gave us a pep talk and told us the positions we were playing.
When we got on the pitch we started out strongly, winning our first game 5-0. The next match we also won 1-0 and we were on a roll! We played lots of superb teams and we did superbly to continue winning our matches. By the end we were all extremely tired but it was all worth while as we finished top our league and are now going to play in the next round.

Day in the life of a sports councilor, by Alex and Megan.
We went to Billingham to be trained to be sports councilors. At this event, we learnt what it means to be a sports councilor and how to train others to play various games. During this, we learned how to be a real member of the sports councilor society we got to meet other children from different schools in the area. We had lots of fun learning this as now we can help younger children at our school. Lookout in the future for some of our ideas to be put in place.
