PE & School Sports
“Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong.”
- John F. Kennedy
At Bedgrove Junior School we provide a high quality PE and school sports curriculum, led by specialist sports coaches - all of whom are employed by the school. We want to inspire all children to consider physical activity as part of their everyday life, achieving their personal best, regardless of ability. We teach children about healthy lifestyles, good food choice and the benefits of being active through our PE and Healthy Minds curriculum. We provide an environment to support children to succeed in being confident to engage in physical activity, with embedded values such as fairness and respect, helping to develop future athletes and good citizens who lead healthy lives. We engage in a range of competitive and non-competitive sporting fixtures to give a range of pupils opportunity to represent the school. We challenge all of our children to be active for sustained periods and to develop their knowledge and skills across a broad range of sports and activities.
Physical Education Across Bedgrove
An eventful couple of weeks have taken place in the Sporting world here at Bedgrove Junior School. Our netball fixtures have come back, with a mixed set of results to kick off the calendar year. Both sets of teams getting off to winning starts with 6-1 and 3-2 wins respectively. We unfortunately ended the half term with a loss for one of our teams. Despite the heavy defeat our spirits have not been dented and we hope to come back fighting after the break.
In other exciting news we took a small group of Year 6's to the Aylesbury Grammar School, to take part in a Handball tournament for the long awaited return of the school games. After only having a couple of training sessions beforehand, our children stormed through the opening group phase and automatically progressed to the to 1st/2nd place play-off. And after a slow start going two goals behind we managed to turn our fortune around to win the final 4-2. The whole team should be very proud of the hard work and commitment they showed. #ProudToBePurple
