‘Learning for our Future’

Sporting/Music & Drama News


Sports Desk

We have an exciting year of sport ahead, having set the benchmark very high for sporting achievement in the last school year. We participate in a wide range of sports, from swimming to handball and football to netball. All children are encouraged to get involved, challenge themselves and do their very best. Many will be selected for teams and events throughout their time at Bedgrove; we do try to include as many children as possible.

It is suggested that all children bring in their PE kit on a Monday morning and take it home on a Friday afternoon. This way they always have the correct kit available and don’t miss out on their lessons. In winter it can become very cold very quickly. We do keep the children moving but a warm sweatshirt and tracksuit bottoms are vital to ensure they enjoy sports participation in the colder months.

Shortly, we will be selecting children from Y5 and Y6 for our Netball team and Girls Football team. All information will be given to children in class and it will be up to them to come along to the trials. The girls football team speaks for itself, only open to girls, in order to get them involved in this mainstream sport. Our netball team is open to boys and girls. With many skills transferable to basketball, many of our players go on to play basketball at secondary school.

Mile a Day will be introduced this September, promoting the link between fitness, health and a healthy mind. This will be phased in over the next week, with all children participating at their own level.

A massive thank you to all those who sent in Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers. We are currently awaiting delivery of our order and the children will be able to enjoy playing with the equipment very soon.

Finally, we know that many parents have their own skills or opportunities to bring to PE at Bedgrove Junior. If you are a sports coach and are able to give time to supporting sport at our school we would love to hear from you. Additionally, if your business is able to sponsor one of our sports kits, we currently have some mutually beneficial opportunities which we would love to discuss with you.

If you do need to contact us, please feel free to do so on
