Cross country

A huge well done to all of the Key Stage 2 children who took part in the Cross Country event on Friday. All children representing the school ran their socks off and persevered through a tough course. There were some outstanding individual performances with Year 3 girls and Year 6 boys being crowned team champions. Overall, the school came in 3rd position with all children showing excellent sportsmanship and effort. Well done team Cleadon!

Well done!

Well done to Miss McGeary, Miss Brown, Mrs Stokes and Miss Elliott who ran the Great North Run on Sunday.


Schools Great North Run 2023!
What a wonderful event!
This morning, Miss Taylor and Mr Scott accompanied 12 children from Year 5 and 6 to the Schools Great North Run in South Shields. The children started their race at the official finish line for Sunday's race and ended at Gypsies Green. We were lucky enough to meet and have a chat with Sir Mo Farrah who will be competing on Sunday in his final professional race.

Meet our Key Stage 2 girls football team!

The children in 5X had a great time in P.E. finding different balance positions with their partners. There was A LOT of trust and teamwork involved and even more giggles! These are just the photos where they managed to balance, we'll leave it to you to imagine what the others were like!

The children in RY had a great time at The Urban Factory on Tuesday. They took part in the 'Co-ordination Challenge,' which saw them running, jumping, sliding and throwing object whilst complete obstacle courses. It's fair to say they had lots of energy to use but it didn't stop one or two having a nap on the way back to school.

Well done to our cross county team for competing at Temple Park.

Well done to all of the children that took part in the gymnastic competition today. Year 5/6 won Gold and Year3/4 Bronze with our individual gymnastic winning Bronze. An amazing effort by all.

Our EYFS children have loved their tag rugby sessions on the field.
