Summer Events 2017
This term St Clare’s pupils will be competing in almost all sporting events available to Middlesbrough schools and the St Hilda’s Academy Trust. After team and individual successes so far this year, the pupils head to all summer events full of confidence. The pupils are ready to demonstrate the skills, values and talents that they have worked hard on during Lessons, break times and after schools clubs. All staff and the community of St Clare’s R.C Primary School wish them well and know they will represent the school admirably. Listed below is the time table for summer events:
Tag Rugby Well done to all of the children who participated in tag rugby competitions across Key Stage 2 last month.
Judo Mr Marron has organised a judo teacher to come and give taster sessions to children this month, we hope the children enjoy learning about a new sport.
A Mile a Day
Can you walk or run a mile a day? Mr Marron has mapped out a mile around the school grounds and classes will be taken out to see if they can complete the mile to increase their fitness levels. We will let you know how we get on!
Year 3 Swimming. Our Y3 children will be going swimming every Friday this term at Eston baths starting 16th September.
We have achieved the Gold Mark for the second year running!!
Tennis- Well done to our tennis champions who came first in last month’s tournament with the other Catholic schools.
Cricket– Well done to the Y4 cricketers. The Y4 have been working with a coach from Durham Cricket Club and followed up their training in PE lessons and in voluntary lunchtime cricket practice, all the hard work paid off as they came first out of 15 other schools.
Well done to the Y5/6 Girls’ cricket team who came joint third. A great day was had by all.
Football—Well done to all of the children from Years 5 and 6 who took part in the Catholic Cup football tournament last month. We were doing really well until rain stopped play. Thank you to all of the parents who came and supported our teams. A big thanks to staff for the preparation and giving their time to support the children.
Good luck to our school A-team netball players who will compete in the Tees Valley Finals on Thursday 14th April. We are very proud of you all and hope that you continue to shine in all of your matches.
Good luck also to Daisy from Y6 who will swim as a member of the Middlesbrough team at the Tees Valley Swimming Gala on Thursday 28th April. It is fantastic that you are representing St. Clare’s at this event.
Congratulations to the children in Y5 who have been learning all about how to stay safe whilst riding their bikes in our local area. They have completed their levels 1 and 2 of the Bikeability scheme and are now able to use and give clear signals when cycling on the roads as well as staying safe on cycle paths in the local area.
Well done to Kayleigh, Lucy and Leo from Y6 and Ajay, Grace, Alex and Erin from Y5 who competed for Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley Cross Country finals which were held at Stewarts Park. They all performed to a very high standard, with top 20 finishes from Kayleigh (15th Y6 girls), Lucy (20th Y6 girls) and Ajay (19th Y5 boys). We are extremely proud of you all and of the fantastic sporting attitudes which you all displayed.
Our school netball squad has been very busy over the last couple of weeks. Our A-team competed in the Middlesbrough Primary Schools’ Championship which took place at Middlesbrough College last week. They competed against a number of other primary schools from across Middlesbrough and I am delighted to tell you that they WON the whole event! The team will now go on to represent Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley Finals when we return to school after Easter.
Our B-team have also been busy playing a number of matches, this time in the Trinity Partnership Competition. As with the A-team, the B-team played extremely well and were narrowly beaten in the final of this competition, securing themselves a very well-deserved silver medal. Both teams have shown excellent sporting attitudes as well as great skills in their matches and we are all very proud of their efforts and achievements. Well done to all our netballing superstars: Lucy, Kayleigh, Hope, Gio, Joe, Blake, Elliot, Abigail, Lucy-Kate, Leonie, Lucas, Kane and Leo and good luck A-team in your next competition.
Huge congratulations to our Key Stage 2 Girls’ Basketball team who came second in the Middlesbrough Primary Schools competition last month. They played extremely well, even winning a penalty shoot-out to secure their place in the final, which they were narrowly defeated in.
Our second trophy of the month came from our Year 2 Sportshall Athletics team who were runners up at the Trinity Sportshall Athletics competition which also took place last month. They showed great skill and determination in a range of athletics events and were excellent representatives for St. Clare’s.
Our Key Stage 2 cross country team had more success last week. In the Year 6 races, Kayleigh and Lucy came 2nd and 3rd respectively and along with Leo have qualified to represent Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley finals. In Year 5, Ajay was the overall boys’ champion, whilst in the girls’ race, Grace finished 3rd and Alex and Erin also fin-ished in the top 10 meaning that they too will also represent Middlesbrough. Our Year 5 girls were placed second overall out of all of the 30 schools which competed and our Y3/4 runners also performed very well in their races. Well done to all those who took part and good luck to our runners in their next races.
Children from Years 1 -6 thoroughly enjoyed a judo taster session which was delivered in school by Destination Judo. The children were all given a leaflet about Judo clubs being run by Destination Judo in the local area and I know that many children have gone on to attend these clubs to further develop their skills.
A group of children from Y5/6 recently competed in the Middlesbrough Schools’ Swimming Gala held at the Neptune Centre. Several swimmers, including Ruby Wanless, Lucy McGouran and Daisy Muirhead, came in the top three of their races and when all of the results were collated and times checked, Daisy was announced as the overall winner for the Y6 Girls’ Breaststroke competition. Well done to each and every one of you and a special good luck to Daisy, who now goes forward to represent Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley Games in April.
