On January 24th the Year 5 Dodgeball team attended the annual festival at Boldon School. They faced off against Hedworth Lane, East Boldon, Forest View and Biddick Hall in a bid for the much coveted gold medals.
Selected at random from widespread interest in Year 5, the side have been attending a few weeks of after-school sessions with Mr Houmark. Designed to get them into the game, working as a team and planning their tactics for use against other schools.
After a tough start against both East Boldon teams, they fought back with wins against Biddick Hall and Forest View. Eventually finishing 5th in the group. Over the coming week, the school will decide upon a new sport to offer after-school for KS2.
