Cross Country - Thursday 4th October

On Thursday 4th October and also Thurs 18th October a team from our school competed in the heats then in the Tees Valley Primary finals for cross country.  In the heats our pupils did really well. Performances to note include from one of our year 3 boys who beat all others in his category of the year 3 and 4 boys. We also had a very strong year 5 team. In the finals, we had the most pupils from Mowden that we have had in a long time. 7 of our children represented Mowden and  we were particularly proud of 2 of our year 5 boys who came 9th and 10th in a large field. Well done Team Mowden!

Year 3/4 Rugby Festival - Thursday 25th October

Year 4 attended a tag rugby festival at Mowden Park Stadium on Thursday 25th October. 30 year 4 pupils attended and so we had enough for a Mowden A, B and C team. First we played some matches against other schools but the best bit was when we did a carousel and did a varied range of activities including aeroplane tag rugby, horse and jockey and race the ball. We had a lot of fun and learnt lots of new skills.
