Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a fantastic day at Monkton Stadium on Tuesday, competing against other schools in the KS2 Quadkids Athletics Competition.
The children had a great time showing off their skills in four events; the standing long jump, the howler throwing, the 75m sprint and the 600m run. The 600m proved to be the toughest for the children and the funniest to watch for the spectators, with some of the children forgetting to pace themselves and sprinting for the first 50m before realising they had 550m still left to go. However, they stuck to their task and gave each event their best effort.
We now have a wait to see if we have qualified for the Tyne & Wear Finals later this term, but regardless of the results, the children have done themselves and St. James School proud.
Year 6 are in their final half term and sporting their ‘Leavers 2018’ hoodies. Looking Good!
We had a lot of fun at the Easter Disco. We danced and played games to win prizes. I think it is safe to say we all had a lot of fun!
The Y6 children went to the fire station in South Shields to listen to various talks about keeping safe.
