Thank you to everyone that donated money to Children in Need on Friday. We raised a fantastic £231.66 which will make a huge difference to children’s lives across the UK.
The Youth Sport Trust, an outstanding PE organisation have launched a free daily 30-minute online club, which is available for all children and young people to participate in some sport, develop skills and of course have fun .
The club will be held every day from 5pm and it is accessed through a live video on their Youtube channel. The club will be led by Athlete Mentors with different backgrounds, abilities and from different sports. It will run Monday to Friday until the 18th December.
Each session will have a specific theme based on the day which will be…
Adventure Monday – this might involve getting children to do floor, wall climbing and map reading all within their living room.
Tuesday Play – imaginative play utilising resources in the house to create games and activities to get active.
Wild Wednesday – some high tempo competitive activities involving personal challenges.
Thinking Thursday – introducing cognitive challenges for children through movement. Active noughts and crosses and introducing an element of competition – whether that be against themselves, the clock, their siblings or remotely with friends.
Fun Friday – a chance for children to let loose and have some fun. Dancing and doing what makes them feel good.
This is a great opportunity for children who are missing out on their usual clubs to develop skills and learn something new.

Y3 have shown a lot of maturity to quickly settle into the juniors this half term. They have produced lots of outstanding work in all subject areas; Miss Moffett and I are extremely proud of their efforts and consistently good attitude.
While traditional sports may have modified recently, there are still many, lovely moments from the early part of the academic year to look back on with pride. Our children participated in great numbers and achieved a lot. It has also been great to see children continuing to keep active at home, by doing all sorts of physical activities.
Well done everyone, enjoy a fun, active summer!
Thank you to Y6 for your amazing efforts in school sport throughout your time at St. Bede’s. It has been a pleasure to coach and see you grow as people throughout your experiences. Good luck in your new journey to secondary school and thank you for the special memories.
The children in school today have constructed and raced their wooden cars.
Our children became Hoopstarz for Sport Relief and had great fun hula hooping and learning a variety of tricks! It was wonderful to see the whole school involved in healthy activity, with many teachers showing off their hula skills too! Thank you to everyone who kindly donated to Sport Relief as we raised £161 together.
Congratulations to our fabulous Skipping team who became South Tyneside Catholic Schools Champions today! Our children excelled in individual, pairs and various team skipping activities, including a wonderfully choreographed Skip Dance!
The children have shown dedication in PE sessions, while Miss Moffett has worked incredibly hard teaching the children after school and at break times. The standard was high on the day, but our children rose to the challenge magnificently.
To celebrate World Book Day this year, the children were asked to bring in some clues for one of their favourite books. The rest of the class then had to guess the book they were describing.
There were lots of creative ideas, well done Year 1 for all your wonderful efforts!
As part of Year 1’s D.T. topic of Houses, we had a visit from Technology Tom. Tom showed us just how strong card and paper can be when it is folded or rolled. We even tried out these ideas by building some very tall structures.
We then set to work in groups creating our own structures, which would house the Three Little Pigs. We thought carefully about our designs to make sure they were wolf proof!
Here are some images from the day.
