SAINSBURY’s School Games Mini-Tennis Competition.

We are proud to announce that Year 4 Valley View Tennis team are mini Tennis tournament winners. The mixed team of boys and girls played 2 other schools in the SAINSBURY’s School Games level 2 competition. The children worked with Tennis coach Carlos Caldeira to develop their skills before playing a mini tournament against their classmates. From this, a team of 8 terrific tennis players were selected.

The winners were then invited to compete on July 9th against other children from different schools across the borough in the SAINSBURY’S SCHOOL GAMES EVENT LEVEL 3. The school team performed admirably throughout the tournament but sadly fell just short of reaching the final.


To celebrate a successful year of sporting activity and competition, the children held a World Music and Culture event, where they created a ‘parade float’ decorated in items representing the culture of their chosen country. The three key themes of culture, celebration and inclusion were evident in the colourful displays, performances and participation. The children had a fantastic time while music teachers from South Tyneside College supported the celebrations by playing music from all around the world.  

Sainsbury’s School Games Day

This year our School Games Day was not stopped by torrential downpours! In fact, far from it! We were fortunate enough to have a variety of competitions and challenges supported by Sports Development as all of the children showed off their sporting talents and competed for stickers and prizes! In the Early Years children invited parents to ‘Stay and Play’ to demonstrate their skills in a wonderful variety of traditional Sports Day activities. Early Years teachers were very proud!

In Key Stage One, the children competed to win Stickers by demonstrating Olympic values! Children participated in a circuit of activities and the determination and perseverance of all of the children made us very proud! Children then worked as teams in a series of competitive races! Although hall space was tight, parents joined in superbly and the children thoroughly enjoyed seeing their grown-ups supporting their School Games Day.


In Key Stage Two, in four teams, the children competed in six different challenges. The finale was particularly exciting with Miss Sparks and Miss Thompson both leading a team! After the points were added, the winning team this year was Miss Sparks’ team! Children proudly received stickers and certificates for all their competitive hard work.
