Year 1 Tennis Festival 2018
Our Year 1 children took part in a Tennis Festival at Boldon School. They had the opportunity to engage in a range of different activities which developed their skills, co-ordination and team work. They were very well supported by Boldon School staff and their school tennis team. The event was a lovely end to weeks of specialist tennis coaching by Stephen Gilbert from Boldon Lawn Tennis Club. The children had a fantastic afternoon and had lots of fun.
Soccer Superstars Autumn Term 2018
The MEN School Football League has now finished after 10 matches. With a strong start with wins against St Joseph’s, West Boldon and title contenders East Boldon, a disappointing draw at home to Cleadon and a defeat away to West Boldon meant going into the final game we needed a victory at East Boldon and St Joseph’s to secure the title. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be as we could only secure 3 points from the 2 games. The team finished second in the league – conceding the fewest goals and scoring the most. The team did the school proud both on and off the pitch!
On November 12th, the Year 6 pupils that make up the majority of our school football team journeyed to Silksworth Sports Complex in Sunderland to take part in a regional inter-school competition. it was an excellent event. We played very well to enable us to finish top of our group and make it through to the semi-finals which ended goalless.
Unfortunately, we went out of the competition on penalties. We went the full tournament unbeaten and conceded zero goals which in itself is outstanding! Player of the match was Bradley, who was wholeheartedly committed and he ran his socks off for the team. This didn’t go unnoticed, SAFC produced a letter inviting him to go and train with their development squad. Outstanding!
Year 3 and 4 Football Tournament
The Y3/4 school team entered a football festival at the brand new “Beacon of Light” in Sunderland. Many balls were kicked and many goals scored. Whilst there were no winners, Mr Graham was extremely happy with the performances and thinks several of the players will make the school team next year!
Year 5 Rugby Tournament 2018
Hedworth Lane took part in this year’s Rugby Festival at Boldon School on Thursday 18th October. We entered three Year 5 teams altogether and one of our teams came home with a first place (undefeated) medal each. It was a lovely sunny afternoon with lots of great examples of sportsmanship seen on and around the pitches. Well done to everyone who took part!
En Garde Class 3!
Upper Key Stage 2 pupils have been learning the discipline of fencing. We use protective clothing and have very strict rules about what we can and cannot do. It is clear that we can certainly learn a new skill and have great fun! “En garde. Prêt. Allez!’

Year 2 enjoyed a sporty trip to Boldon CA for a multi-skills festival. Over 18 different stations – from hockey to basketball, from jumping to sprints, meant the children were active for nearly 2 hours. Whilst none of the teams came away as winners, they all came away with a certificate and big smiles on their faces.
Year 3 Rugby
This week Class 6 proudly represented our school at a Year 3 rugby tournament hosted by Boldon School. The children thoroughly enjoyed putting their new skills into practice and had a fantastic afternoon playing in the sunshine! All children had a great team spirit and learnt a lot about the rules of tag rugby. Well done everybody! Super effort!
