Year 5 basketball winners

8th January 2016
On Friday 8th January our Year 5 basketball team played a 'mini match' against Shanklea which we won after a dramatic penalty shoot out!  After the match the score was tied at 1-1 but Tyreece stepped up to take the penalty shot and scored with his first attempt...much to the delight of the Eastlea crowd of parents and children who had come along to watch the game.  The team of 10 Year 5 players were presented with a huge silver trophy as recognition for their victory!  Well done!
All of this had taken place during the half time of the Newcastle Eagles match v the Surrey Scorchers.  The Eagles won the game 99 - 67 too so it was good news all round for those who had come along to watch.  A coach load of 54 Eastlea pupils, parents, ex- pupils, gpovernors and families thoroughly enjoyed their evening!
