School Games Day
On Wednesday 4th May we will be holding a School Games Day in school. This will be the culmination of our work towards our objective of achieving a School Games Mark for the academic year 2015/16.
We have been working hard to establish systems to track pupil participation and ensure all pupils are able to participate in a wide range of sports activities held in our school and at different sporting events over the year, leading up to this event.
Pupils will be based in their House Teams for the day, either Tyne Bridge, Swing Bridge, Millennium Bridge or Redheugh Bridge. Suggestions for our House Teams were made by pupils and chosen by our School Sports Organising Crew. As part of their team, in an active or supporting role, pupils will be participating in a range of sporting activities which reflect each of the six School Games Values: Passion, Self Belief, Honesty, Determination, Teamwork and Respect. Wristbands, medals and trophies will be on offer to those pupils who perform best in the activities and, as House Team points will also be up for grabs, the House team with the highest number of points for the year will also be presented with a trophy.
