St Joseph’s Sports Update

We’ve had a hectic few sporting weeks at St Joseph’s but we have been so lucky with the beautiful weather.
In Sports Week, we had so many exciting activities and everyone from Reception to Year 6 had a chance to take part in our World Cup 2018 themed events.


On Tuesday 26th June, we had our whole school Sports Day.  From howler throwing to a new mini obstacle course, everyone had a great time and we are grateful that we had a super turn out from St Joseph’s parents too.


On Wednesday 27th June, KS2 had an incredible climbing wall and a fantastic infra red laser run.  KS1 had a World Cup orienteering challenge.


On Thursday 28th June, KS2 took part in some badminton and fencing activities.  Year 3/4 also made us feel very proud with their behaviour and performances at the Middlesbrough Football competition at the Sports Village.   Congratulations to the Girls team who came second and the Boys team who came third.

On Friday 29th June, we had the final day of our sports Week and our Sainsbury’s Gold Day.  KS 1 had a multi-skills festival and KS2 had a carousel of activities from wheelchair basketball, football, golf target hitting and table tennis.  We closed our Gold Day with an exciting Fun Run.  KS1 also had a great day at the Middlesbrough Football Festival at the Sports Village.  Once again, they all were great ambassadors for St Joseph’s and they were very proud to come back with their medals.

On Saturday 30th June, we travelled to Bridlington for the Catholic Cup.  Once again, the behaviour of our three teams was excellent and a special mention must go to Sviatoslav Juchnevic who was St Joseph’s top scorer.

The final event of our sporting year was the Year 4/5 Orienteering at Stewart Park on Wednesday 4th July.  We performed really well on a very challenging course.

2017-18 has been another incredible sporting year for St Joseph’s.  Have a lovely summer and we will see you in September.
