Girls Athletics Competition

On 11th of November Mr Fletcher took 10 boys and 10 girls to an athletics competition. They competed in mixed sport activates these included:

  • Running events
  • Obstacle courses
  • The javelin  
  • Field events (long jump etc.) 

    The boys did their track events first whilst the girls did their field ones and then they swapped. Children from St Bede’s kindly came to help supervise and be in charge of some game on the field events and the running/obstacle races. After we had finished all the track and field events, we had to do all of our relays. It was first girls then the boys. Whilst we went racing we were cheering out team on from the side line. Once we had finished we went back to school and waited for an email to see if we got into the finals.

    Two weeks later, we got an email to say we got through to the finals. We headed to the Durham’s queen campus again to compete. We didn’t do as well as we had in the first round and didn’t place in the top 3 but we still had a lot of fun and enjoyed taking part in all the different events.

Basketball

We went to a Basketball tournament in Northshore Academy. There were 2 groups of 4 teams. To qualify you needed to place top 2 in your group but we were 3rd. We played well and we deserved to go through because we played as a team and had good sportsmanship but were unlucky.

On the 8th of January St. Patrick’s took two teams to a football tournament at Northfield. They were really good teams and it was tough group for the B team who came 3rd in their group and the A team came first in theirs. The A team went to the finals against a tough team, we shared the tournament win by drawing with the other team. The B team came 5th out of the whole tournament. Good luck to the A team who move on to the next round.

Golf Festival – 6/11/19

On Wednesday 6th November ten Year 4s went to the golf festival. Mrs Ferguson took us to the festival. Our favourite activities were where we had to hit the cone and then you got to take the cone away until you got to the end and there is no cones left. We won because we tried hard and never gave up.                                                                                         

We were against lots of other schools. We thought that we were never going to beat them but we did it was a very tiring game. We had to play one of the activities with different shapes golf clubs so it was a bit tricky but we still had fun.

 We got 1235 points altogether. We were there all afternoon having FUN and we are going to Hartlepool. One of the other activities we did was were we had to get the golf ball and fling it into the air so you can get lots of points for the team. On the way back from playing golf we went on a minibus and everyone was really tired.

Cross Country- 9.9.19

On Monday 9th of September 2019. A group of people went to a cross country event at Grangefield School. We were all ready to show the local area what we could do. At first, we did a quick warm up and then, it was time for the Y3/4 boy race one of our St Patricks boys, Joe, came 1st in the race. Then it was Y3/4 girls race one of our Y4 girls, Isla, came 3rd in the race.

Next it was the Y5 boy and girls race, Neve came first out of St Patricks and Jack came 5th out of the boys. Finally it was the Y6 race for the girls and boys. Out of the girls Izzy came 4th, out of the boys Max came 2nd in the race. After that we all had a big drink of water which cooled us down a lot, we were exhausted and wanted to get back.
