Football

A great start to the year with one cup match and two tournaments under our belt already. The boys tried their hardest in their cup match at Broughton, lots of opportunities to score, but there seemed to be an invisible force field around the goal. Whilst not successful on this occasion, we’re sure those goals will start to go in soon.

At the Mandeville Tournament, our girls achieved second place overall, a great result, losing by just one goal to the winning team. This was also an opportunity for us to take some children along who are not in our teams, to give them a footballing experience. We took along 25 children in total to the girls and boys tournaments, and all represented us in style. We were incredibly Proud to be Purple, watching a number of children try a sport for the first time. All wore beaming smiles on their faces and left hungry for another chance to compete. Very well done in particular to our older girl footballers, who really supported the rest of the teams, giving great advice and ensuring that everyone was confident to give it a go.

The Haddenham Tournament saw our boys and girls teams competing for a place at the County Football Final. The boys competed well, reaching the semi-final stage. Our girls went on to win their competition, beating the team that they lost out to at the Mandeville Tournament. Great growth mindset girls. They will now go forward to the County Final – we will let parents know as soon as we have more information.

 

Handball

Twenty of our children competed in a recent event at AGS, with both the competitors and spectators loving this sport. It’s very fast paced and great fun to watch. With the tournament divided into two leagues, our two teams both won their respective sides, eventually meeting in the final. Great play from both teams saw a nail biting 6-5 result in the final, with the winning team now qualifying to represent the local School Sports Partnership at the School Games Finals. Everyone present can be very proud of their performance and the way that they represented the school.

 

Fixtures

House Day

Our first House Day of the year saw our teams competing to win the House Trophy. The children moved through four events, building a marble run from just paper and sellotape, finding their way through an obstacle course whilst blindfold, making their way through an invisible minefield - trying to memorise the path for others to follow and finally in maths week, an inter house Times Table Rockstar challenge.

‘My favourite part of House Day was the minefield, because I liked that you were helping each other and had to remember the path through to the end.’ Alex, Y4.

‘My favourite was the blindfold obstacle course because it was set up so that you could have lots of goes and earn more points. It was funny seeing the teachers dancing to some weird songs.’ Lucy and William, Y6.

It was great to see everyone working together, across the different year groups, forging new friendships and experiences. Well done to Charlie, Sam, Nyasha and Elliott who were awarded Star of the House Day certificates by their House Captains, for their work on the day. Well done also to the House Captains, who led for their teams and had the nerve-wracking job of standing up in assembly at the end of the day, to talk about their winners. Each of them did a great job.

Massive congratulations too to Bolt’s Blues, who won the overall House Day trophy. We look forward to our next House Day in the Spring term.

 

And finally ….

A massive thank you to all the parents who have brought their children along to events, or supported us by sending in materials for House Day. Special thanks to Eliot, George and Kaiden who came along to the Haddenham Tournament and refereed for us, your support is greatly appreciatedt.  It was great to see George and Kaiden, ex-pupils, back supporting the school.

Our PE Calendar

 

At Bedgrove Junior School, all children are encouraged to be active, both within PE lessons and through our Mile-A-Day and Fitter Future initiatives.  In addition, many lessons include active breaks to focus or re-focus the mind.

 

Throughout their years at the school, children will learn a range of sports, with many proudly representing us in competition.  We also provide many opportunities to lead, both within lessons and with other year groups, developing skill-sets and future potential.

 

Many of our well attended school clubs feature sport and further dance lessons are delivered within our Creative Arts curriculum.  Our lesson calendar is arranged to coincide with major sporting events, inter-school competitions and, of course, the weather, enabling all children to gain the most from their PE education.
