15/11/2017 – KS2 Multi Skills Festival

A group of Year 5 and 6 children took part in a Multi Skills Festival on the 15th November 2017 down at St Thomas More, Blaydon. They competed in a variety of sporting events with other year 6s from other feeder schools in the area, they competed in a variety of Relay events, lap events and some track events.

The children absolutely loved the event and they were fantastic in the sports themselves. Just look at the smiling faces above in the Team Photo. Here’s looking forward for our current Year 5’s taking part next year as well!

‘It was lovely to visit STM and take part in the indoor sports challenge with other year 5 and 6 children from our cluster schools. The team were fantastic in both behaviour and attitude. They really enjoyed it and the atmosphere was great. We came fourth overall. There were some outstanding performances from our team, particularly in the field events and relays. Well done St Matthew’s!’ – Mrs M Saunders, Class Teacher

Year 5 and 6’s Trip to Church

Our Year 5 and 6 children visited ‘Our Lady and St Cuthberts’ on the 3rd November 2017. The children attended Mass and even got the opportunity to interview Fr Michael about his role as a Parish Priest as well as what it entails to be a Priest. The children loved it asked so many great questions! This is really going to help them in their current RE topic! Look at the cheery faces in the ‘mini-gallery’ below. Lucy, Matthew and Fintan even helped out in the morning Mass!
