On the 25th of May children from years 5 and 6 took part in a inter school cricket competition at Felling Cricket Club. The Drive A finished the tournament winning 2 games from their 6. The Drives B team narrowly missed out on qualifying for the quarter finals by 1 point. A fab time was had by all, with some children showing interest in taking part in cricket outside of school.
Recently a mixture of children across key stage 2 attended a Boccia tournament at Gateshead Leisure Centre. The tournament was a great opportunity for the children to learn how to play a different sport whilst competing against other schools.
Take a look at our photos!!
