Recent Sporting Activities:

Sports day:  Huge congratulations to 'Red' team on winning the overall sports day, future sports stars I wonder?


Well done to EVERYONE who took part especially those children who filled in, in races for children who were absent, that was true teamwork. To those who may not like sports but who just showed resilience and got on with it, that’s true Bagthorpe.  Thank you to Mr Smith, Miss Lockwood and Mr Turner. from Next Level Sports for their help, Mrs Hardy and Mrs Hemp for the difficult job of keeping score, Miss Hemp for giving out the stickers and our 6 x Y6 helpers Jacob, George, Betsy, Lilli, Mika and Brooke for doing a great job and working hard all afternoon.


It was great to see so many parents, grandparents and supporters on the afternoon, thank you for your support.


Year 3/4 handball:  10 of our Y3/4 children went to represent the school at a handball competition (another new sport for them) on Monday, 1st July at Sutton centre. Mr Nunn accompanied the children on what was an exciting competition as their skills improved over every match they played. Excellent sportsmanship was shown, resulting in the children coming 2nd overall. Well done to all who took part and thank you to Mr Nunn.


Eastwood and District High 5 Netball competition:  On the same day as the handball competition our netball team were taking part in a round robin netball competition at Gilthill Primary School. They played 5 matches overall in what was a great event. Sportsmanship, fair play, skill and enjoyment were on show by all teams that took part. An enjoyable afternoon of netball was had by all.  As the scores were announced two teams were on the same score, so it all went down to goals scored. I am really pleased to say that our netball team had scored the most goals overall and won the competition and the trophy came back to Bagthorpe. Well done girls you were awesome and Edie for being a great captain. Thank you to Danielle for umpiring and our spectators as always for your support.


Kwik Cricket:  After the initial event was cancelled due to rain, 16 children went off to Kirkby Portland Cricket Club to represent our school in a Kwik Cricket competition.  Well done to all who took part and a great day was had by all!  Some amazing bowling, fielding and batting was displayed on the day.  Thank you to all!


Y3/4 Mini Tennis:  Four of our Year 4’s had a go at a new sporting event for Bagthorpe – mini tennis.  New skills were learned during the event and some exciting rallies were held.  For a first attempt we are extremely proud of the team who came 3rd overall.  Well done!


District Sports:  Thirty-eight children from Key Stage 2 took part in the Annual District Sports competition at Harvey Hadden Stadium.  They sprinted, took part in relays, threw and jumped their way to their own personal victories.  An amazing afternoon was had by all (adults too).  A special well done to Leo who hop, stepped and jumped himself into 1st place on his final jump (a Jonathan Edwards of the future maybe?)  Also, to the girls’ relay team who came 3rd overall.  As a result of all their hard work and effort the team finished in 3rd place. Huge congratulations to all.  As always their behaviour was a credit to the school and their families.



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

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 to sporting events.
