Year 5/6 Chocolate Brownie Making Fun
As the finale to our chocolate topic, we invited our parents and carers into school to help us to make some luxurious brownie cakes! We followed the recipes carefully and made sure that we carried out the instructions perfectly. The finished mixtures looked delicious and they were even better once they had been baked. On Friday evening, we took our chocolate brownies home inside the packaging designs which we had also created. The year 5 and 6 teachers would like to thank everyone who attended for their huge support.

Wardley C 2 v South Street 1
Wardley C 3 v Glynwood B 2
Each team did fantastically well. Wardley A finished top of their group; however they were knocked out in the quarter finals in extra time. They were a real team with some great phases of passing. Megan Wheeler and Ben Bysouth showed fantastic agility when running with the ball.
Wardley C finished runners up in their group, however, they didn't qualify for the next round. Charlie Collins was described by one of the rugby coaches as 'Usain Bolt' because of his quick speed with the ball.
Wardley B team finished 3rd place overall. They comfortably won their quarter final but lost out to Bill Quay again (3-1) in a very close semi-final. Despite their disappointment, they rose to the challenge in the third/fourth play-off and won with a last gasp try. This earned them a place in the Gateshead Schools Finals on the 12th November 2014.
Ralph Carlucci excelled in all games and proved to be a dynamic player and inspirational leader.
Good luck to the team at the finals!

Ennis House win inaugural Tag Rugby 2014 Competition
To celebrate the end of the Tag Rugby unit of sport, a Year 5/6 house competition took place. Eight teams (two from Ennis house, Farah, Simmonds and Weir) competed to earn a house point for their team. The children had the opportunity to practise the skills they had been developing over the last seven weeks in a competitive environment. There was some fantastic tries, tags and passing. After winning their group and semi-final, Ennis House Team 1 were the eventual winners, with a 7-4 victory over Farah house in the final.
The staff would like to thank the children for their great attitudes and teamwork and also to James and Jordan, our tag rugby coaches, who supported the refereeing of the games.
Next week, 3 teams of children will be attending the Gateshead Schools Tag Rugby competition. Hopefully, all the practise will mean a successful tournament for each team.
