After half term we will be placing our orders for Sainsbury’s Active Kids equipment. Any vouchers that you still have can be posted in our box in reception. We are grateful for all donations, which will be used to purchase equipment for the children to use at break times. It would be great if we could collect as many as possible to buy as much equipment as possible for the children to use.

This half term we have seen some amazing performances in sporting events. A Year 6 team competed in an Athletics Event at Aylesbury Grammar School. We all have favourite athletics events but these children had to each compete in four different events – standing long jump, howler throw, a sprint and a long distance run. Each was challenged to achieve their very best across the events and they did not disappoint, achieving a fantastic 2nd place overall, in a very close result. Well done to everyone who competed. (Star athletes Alex and Adam)

In Netball, we played a friendly match against Turnfurlong Junior School, with many children on both sides involved in their first ever match. Our girls played extremely well, progressing as they went, winning 4-1. Very well done to all involved. (Star player Ellen) Our league team played their final match against Turnfurlong simultaneously, winning an amazing 16-1. This means that they are now league winners in the Large Schools League. Our next step will be to play the winners of the Small Schools League in the coming weeks. Congratulations to all involved, you’ve worked hard to achieve your success. (Star player Sofia)

On the same evening we participated in a Tag Rugby Tournament at Broughton School. This was a very tense affair and saw us playing Turnfurlong in the final. With the lead constantly switching between the two teams, we were on tenterhooks throughout. At the end of the match we waited nervously for the result to discover that Bedgrove Junior were the overall winners. A fantastic performance throughout. Great work by all. (Star player Kai)

Next, eight children were selected to represent the school in Tennis. This is a sport that we are looking to develop in school in the future. Our upper school team performed admirably and, although they didn’t win, thoroughly enjoyed the event. Our lower school team also enjoyed themselves, going on to win their event. The team featured some amazing talent, with one particular player winning by a very large margin. Staff at the event went out of their way to draw our attention to the sportsmanship shown by Isobella in particular and, for both her performance and behaviour, she is our star player.

Finally Football, our Boys A played their final match this week. A tricky match for all as we were down on players on the day and had no subs. Our boys have shown their talent and resilience all season and they continued to shine with them eventually winning 1-0. An excellent performance in very hot weather. (Star player Eli)

It just remains for us to thank you all once again for your support at these events, arranging for your children to attend and cheering on from the side lines. Also, a big thank you to Charlie from The Grange School, who has continued his involvement with our football team, and to Anita Doughty, who has supported us with refereeing. Your support is valued very highly by us all.
