Rugby Coaching and Tournament October 2015

As a nod to the World Cup Rugby Tournament that we are hosting this year as a nation,

the Year 1 and 2 children have been involved in a weekly tag rugby coaching session which concluded in a mini tournament this week!

Mr Andrew from Roaring Rugby,  who runs the tag rugby club on a Wednesday after school ,talked to the children about the Word Cup Rugby in an assembly  and then  ran the coaching sessions during the Monday PE Slot.

All the children were very taken with the tag rugby and some have even joined the tag rugby club as a result! Every child has received a certificate to say that they have taken part in the event! Well done children and thank you Mr Andrew!


Tag Rugby Festival

On Monday 19th October, to tie in with our own school mini tag rugby festival, we were pleased to welcome Bristol Rugby player George Watkins.

George joined the children for lunch and then talked to the children in assembly about his career in rugby, his love of sport and his commitment to the team.

It was great to meet George and we really appreciated him giving up his time to visit us and to inspire the children!

PE enrichment afternoon with Bromley Heath Juniors

On Friday afternoon , to round off our Sports Week, we all took part in a PE activity and linked up with the Bromley Heath Juniors.

Our Year 2 children joined with the Year 5s to choreograph and perform a Wake and Shake dance that was filmed to be used for future Wake and Shake sessions.

Our Year 1 children took part in an orienteering activity with the Year 4 children, one being a string trail around the infant playground in pairs attached to each other at the wrist. It took a lot of dialogue and skill to negotiate the tight spaces and twists and turns in unison with each other and without getting tangled up! As an extra challenge,  the children attempted to hold a cup of water all the way round without spilling any!

Our Year 1 and Year 4 children also took part in a photo hunt of particular places photographed in the junior playground, and had to look really carefully with their partner to determine where the photo was taken!

Our Reception children and Year 5s took part in a carousel of activities on the field including skipping, long jump, throwing and football goal scoring!

The children were paired up together and the older children helped the younger children to improve their technique and expertise in each area!

Everyone had smiles on their faces and it made for an enjoyable and fun afternoon!


Archery and Golf

On Thursday, as part of our Sports Week,  Alex from The Grange School came to coach us in Archery and Golf. The children really enjoyed learning a new activity and developing a new skill!



We  were very lucky to have a visit for the day from two Bristol Flyer basketball players as part of our Sports Week. All classes were able to work with the players to practice bouncing, dribbling , passing and shooting!

Bristol Flyers basketball match

On Friday 13th February, some of our children along with their parents and Mrs Warren and Mrs Park attended the Bristol Flyers basketball match at Filton WISE campus for  their game against Surrey United.

This was a follow up to a school assembly organised by Bristol Sport, when the children had the opportunity to meet a couple of Bristol Flyer members and to ask questions about basketball.

It was a fun event, which began with our Bromley Heath children forming a line up for the basketball players to “high five” and then the action packed game started!

The children thoroughly entered into the spirit and excitement of the event and were thrilled when the result was 70-62 to Bristol Flyers.

After the match the children were able to meet the players and get autographs!

Look out for future sporting events that we are hoping to be part of!
