Summer Holiday Sports Camp

JUNE 2018

Our Netball team represented Ashfield at the County Finals at the Emmanuel School in West Bridgford at the end of their SAT’s week. Huge congratulations to them all, they showed great sportsmanship, determination and teamwork; supporting each other throughout the four games they played. They won one and drew three. Thank you and well done to them all. Keep up the coaching, James!


Gymnastics Festival: Twelve children from Years 2, 3 and 4 went to Selston High School to enter into a Gymnastics Festival where they got to jump on trampets, off horses, balance, mirror and match movements. What a great time was had by all!


Next Level Football Tournament: Thank you to Mr Smith for organising the football tournament between Brinsley Primary, Holly Hill Primary and ourselves. Super sportsmanship and behaviour was displayed by all. Well done to Holly Hill for winning the trophy this year.


Years 1 to 4 Cross Country: Representing our school were 21 children from KS1 and KS2 at the Annual Cross Country at Selston High School. Congratulations to all our runners who competed with great determination and huge smiles all around. Well done to Rowan on leading from the front (and despite challenges from others) was not giving up first position.


Final results:

  • Y1/2 girls’ team came 3rd
  • Y1/2 boys’ team came 2nd
  • Year 3/4 boys’ and girls’ teams both came 4th


Thank you to all for their support even though, unfortunately, this year due to exams we were unable to take spectators so a HUGE THANK YOU to all who transported the team to the event; we know you were disappointed (we were too).

KS1 Athletics: What an amazing way to end the week, than with 11 of our KS1 athletes. Although nervous, they entered into the spirit of the occasion with such enthusiasm, energy and determination. Working as a team, they encouraged and supported each other around 6 field events and three relays. What a pleasure it was to watch them. Thank you to Sophia, Rowan, Layla, Ida, Leah, Seth, Thomas, James, Darcy, Noah and Evie for such an enjoyable afternoon. The team finished 3rd overall. Well done team Bagthorpe.


Netball: Our team played two more matches last week and again were unbeaten! Two exciting matches against Greenwood Primary and Croft Primary resulted in the team winning 8-0 and 10-3. Great teamwork and sportsmanship was displayed at all times. Well done to Ellis and James for being named ‘Player of the Matches’ by the opposing schools. What a great run they have had, especially for a newly formed team. As always we are extremely proud of all our sports stars.


Basketball: Wow! What an enthusiastic response we had to our basketball competition with 20 x Y5/6 children putting their names forward meaning we were able to enter 2 teams. What was especially great was children entering who don’t usually put themselves forward for sports competitions. Well done and thanks to all, despite only having one practise, they entered into the game with skill, determination and enthusiasm, resulting in our teams coming 2nd and 4th overall. Well done to Eva, James, Megan, Ellis, Brooke, Georgia, Megan, Max, Philip, Ester, Holly, Savanna, Edward, Josh, Anna, Ana, Frazer, Isabelle, Clara and Archie.

Y5/6 Futsal ‘B’ Team: Congratulations to the team of Brooke, Holly, Frazer, Mason, Dominic and Jacob who played 6 games (won 2 / drew 2  /lost 2). A great result and finished 2nd overall. What an exciting competition!


Y5/6 Girls’ Futsal: Well done to the girls for entering into the team spirit of the game and encouraging each other to take turns in goal. There were 8 teams altogether and the girls finished joint 4th.  Super team spirit!


Thanks to Mrs Fant for all her hard work towards this.

Year 5 & 6 Cross Country: Over 400 children took part in the cross country at Ashfield school on a windy Tuesday evening and what an amazing time we all had. We had entered two girls’ teams and one boys’ team that evening and what results we had. Our girls ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams won the team events, resulting in them all achieving a gold medal, with Yasmine Flynn winning the ‘B’ race receiving 2 golds - well done to them all. Our boys’ team came 13th overall out of the 24 teams taking part. As always they were a pleasure to take and their behaviour was impeccable. Thank you to parents and grandparents for transporting the children.


Year 5 & 6 Handball: This was a first for Bagthorpe taking part in a handball competition and what a competition. It was fast, furious and what fun! The children had only had four weeks to learn handball during their PE lessons with Next Level Sports and they played brilliantly. Well done to Eva, Megan, Brooke, Holly, James, Mikey, Ellis, Frazer and goalkeepers Georgia and Max in coming 2nd overall. We are looking in to more handball competitions for the team. Thank you to Mrs Hammond for accompanying the team.

Sports Day (School Games Day):  Congratulations to the 'Green Team' (Miss Shackleton & Mrs Sears) on being the winning team on Sports Day.  Well done to all the children for taking part and entering into the spirit of the afternoon.  Especially well done to our 'reception' children who, despite finding it tough lining up in front of the cheering crowd, got stuck in to their races.  Thank you also to the parents, grandparents and friends for their huge support.


A massive 'thank you' to Alyssa, Lottie, Alena, Charlie, Logan and Nathan for helping Sports Day run so smoothly.  They were the best helpers ever!

Special Olympics team with Paralympian, Ollie Hynd 1
Seven of our pupils met Paralympian, Ollie Hynd, at a Special Olympics event at Lammas Leisure Centre.  They got to take part in wheelchair basketball, football, table cricket and boccia.   To end the exciting day they watched two children perform dance routines on the ice.  What a fantastic day was had by all! 

Red Sports tops and football kit:  Please can you check at home to see if any items of sports kit are hiding anywhere as we seem to have quite a few items missing and getting short on supplies!  If you do find anything, please give them a wash and iron before returning into school for other sports teams to use.  Thanks.  


A huge ‘thank you’ to all parents and grandparents for their great support and for providing transport.
