‘Learning for our Future’

Sporting/Music & Drama News

Events during the break and in the first week see's us continue our sporting action. First of which came in during the half term with a fabulous performance, from our Year 5&6s dance group and teachers. They performed a fantastic show during the honeycomb dance festival, one that impressed a huge number of the audience with some great humour, dancing and acting. This was definitely something the students should look back at with pride. 

On our return, the football ravens were back into action with a game against Hayden Abbey in a push win the league title. That push got off to a very promising start with an marvellous 3-0 victory. Ryan picked up the man of the match award, as well as scoring an impressive hat-trick.

 The final cross country meeting of the year took place in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor on Saturday 24th March with 21 runners from Bedgrove taking part in the four races.  As usual, it was raining and muddy but that did not dampen the enthusiasm of the Purples and their parents.  Our results are as follows:

Cross Country News

In preparation for the Waddesdon Cross Country Championships, cross country club held its final training session in Bedgrove Park last Tuesday morning.   Well done to all those children who have got up early every Tuesday to join in the fun.

This term our netball team has had a very strong period with multiple victories. The first of which came against Haddenham with a 3-1 victory  by the Monkeys and star player being awarded to Noah. Second of all, the Monkeys again played Wendover and we had a very encouraging performance with a 9-0 victory: the star player being Daniel. It was then the turn of the Lemurs to show what they were made of, which they did with an 8-3 win over Oak Green: the star player was Caitlin. The Monkeys then had a game against Cuddington and Dinton but were unlucky to lose 4-5: star player was Poppy. Lemurs ended the term in impressive style with a thrilling 7-5 win over Bierton, two star players were awarded in the form of Isobel and Max. And finally for Netball, the Monkeys also set up for their final game against Halton but fell short with a 1-4 loss.  Again two star players were awarded to Rosie and Vanessa. 

 

To the football, and starting with the girls who got a victory over Broughton in emphatic style with a 4-0 win: star player awarded to Esme and Rosie. Next, the Hawkes played Eddelsborugh but were not quite able to hit top gear with  a 3-1 loss: star player Leo. Finally, our Eagles had a very tough game against Cuddington and Dinton, but they managed to pull through with a 2-1 win: star player awarded to Alfie. 

South West Regional Final - Runners-Up

Congratulations to all of the team who competed at Oxford City in the South West Regional Football Final. Some great performances, including more game saving acrobatics from Rosie in goal, solid work in defence from Daisy and Tabi, superb attacking midfield play and goals from Lily and Angie and pressure play from Safia and Esme. The only team that was unbeaten in normal time, goals unfortunately eluded us during the dreaded final penalty stage. Whilst disappointed not to win, all should be rightly proud to have achieved this level in football, to have taken part in an event that will provide good experience for the future and to finish runners-up in such a prestigious tournament.  Star Player on the day was Grace, playing an intelligent game, in the right place every time and supporting everywhere on pitch where she saw either potential issues or opportunity. A well deserved award.

 

Having won their section of the football league (4 groups), the next step for the girls is to play in the overall league semi-final, in addition to representing Bucks & Milton Keynes in the School Games in July.

Grange Dance Show 2018

A mixed start to the half term for our sports teams. 

 

Our very strong start to the Netball season continued the other day with a fantastic performance at home, against St Mary's, with a 6-0 victory.  All of them put in 100%, but star player was awarded to Max.

 

Our girls football team continued their excellent unbeaten start to the season, with a very strong performance to the hands of William Harding. A performance that all of them should be proud of. Goalscorers were Angie, Lily, Eliana and Grace (2). Star player Eliana. Result 5-0.

 

Our boys didn't have the best of starts to the new half term, as the Ravens were unfortunate to lose a very tight game, that finished 2-0 to William Harding. It was a very strong defensive display by the purples, but wasn't quite enough to contain a well drilled side. Star Player Harley. 

Bedgrove Juniors win Oxford City Football Final and are through to South West Regional Final. Excellent Job Girls. Great Trophy!

We are delighted to have started the year with another qualification for the Bucks & Milton Keynes School Games, after taking two teams to a Basketball Tournament at Aylesbury Grammar School. The format of the competition was girls v girls in the first half of matches and boys v boys in the second half. After some excellent play and some very tight matches, we were placed 1st and 4th, with our winning squad going forward to represent the Mandeville School Sports Partnership at the forthcoming games. Well done to all those involved, both teams played fantastically well. (Star players Poppy and Noah.)

 

Our basketball win was quickly followed by our first Netball match of the year. We have entered two teams into the local leagues, in order to maximise the number of children playing in games this year. Our first match was away against Ashmead School, where we had a fantastic 12-0 win. Congratulations to our marvellous Monkeys (the name the team have chosen for themselves). The second match for the Monkeys is expected to be tougher, so we will be working with the children in training to maximise their opportunity. The star player will be announced in our Friday Celebration Assembly.

 

Many thanks to all the parents who have taken children to matches, and especially those who stood outside at the netball match in extremely cold weather. Also to George and Dom from The Grange School, who joined us for an additional training session with our basketball teams.

Cross Country Club - Santa Dash- Tuesday 19th December

Cross Country club held their postponed Santa Dash in Bedgrove Park this morning.  15 intrepid children and 3 staff ran around the frosty park wearing Father Christmas hats and singing carols at the top of their voices.  

Build something that will float in a child's paddling pool.

House Day

 

Our inaugural House Day was held on Friday 1st December, the aim being to build something that could float, with the criteria of style, durability, ingenuity and closeness to original design. It was an amazing opportunity for children to work as a team to design, build and test models, creating new friendships across the school in the process. Despite only having junk and one roll of sellotape to work with, the creativity of the children shone through. Ultimately, there could be only one winner and that was Van Gogh who have been awarded a mufti day to celebrate. During the day we discussed re-cycling of the discarded materials and it was great to see so many children taking this on board.

Finally, a massive congratulations to our winners, but also to our House Captains on the day, Esme, Max, Amelia, Dylan, Corey, Hannah, Simona and George. They had the task of encouraging their teams, providing advice and choosing both the winning design to represent their house and their House Star of the Day. Not an easy task, but one that they completed very well.

Sport at Bedgrove Junior School

 

PE and School sport is a real strength of our school - we have an exceptionally talented group of children across a range of different sports.  Many of our children compete at local, regional and national level in sports such as netball, dance, football and gymnastics.  Our school teams are very successful when they compete in tournaments, festivals and other sporting events. This resulted in many of our teams going through to the Bucks youth games finals and even the National youth games finals last year. Our netball team were undefeated in the league last year.

57% of our children competed in a school sports team last year and 68% of our children attended an after school sports club. 

We have an excellent team of staff who deliver the majority of our school sports and who support other teachers to deliver quality PE sessions particularly in the areas of dance and gymnastics.

Our sports team are:

Mr Niesyto

Mrs Tatlow

Miss Adams

Mr McDonald
