Luton Indoor Cricket League

 frownnoCHAMPIONS! nofrown

 

The Luton Indoor Cricket league is a fiercely competitive event that takes place over the winter months. The team began training after school on a Tuesday in September and have been working hard to improve their batting, bowling and fielding skill all year. The team comfortably won all of their group fixtures, which took place either side of the New Year, and finished on top of their group. This meant we had qualified for the Luton Indoor Cricket League finals at Inspire on Wednesday 13th March. The standard at this stage is excellent and the pressure on the players is very high. This is how the morning played out...

 

Quarter Final:

William Austin 251/4 v 307/1 Bushmead

 

Semi-Final:

Downside 279/4 v 282/2 Bushmead

 

Final:

Beechwood 275/5 v 279/1 Bushmead - CHAMPIONS

 

I am hugely proud of the team and this really is a wonderful achievement - I believe the first time that Bushmead has won the Indoor Cricket League. Well done for all their hard work!

Sports Event Updates:

Netball, Sportability, Cross Country, Football, Hockey and Futsal

 

We had a very busy week last week, with numerous children from different year groups representing the school at sporting events, festivals and fixtures...

 

Netball

We played our first Division 1 netball match of the year against a very strong St Matthew's team, eventually losing 9-2. A heavy defeat, but there were many positives we took from the match and look forward to our next fixture. Well done to the girls that played on the day!

Team: Lore, Mckayla, Lillian, Kira, Evie, Leah and Zana.

 

Sportability

We took a selection of pupils from years 4-6 to this fun, multi-sports event for children of all abilities. The children took part in a range of sports including boccia., kurling, table cricket, seated volleyball, athletics and more.

 

Cross Country Relays - WINNERS!

We took a mixed team of pupils to the cross country relay event at Stockwood Park. The children take part in a 4x1 race, each member of the team having to complete a lap of the track before passing on the baton to the next runner. After a great race, we were confident we'd done enough to win and when the results were announced, it was confirmed - WINNERS!

A fantastic result, congratulations to Harvey, Mackenzie, Amber and Leah.

 

Football

On Thursday evening we had a tough Division 1 football match against St Margaret's. Despite creating many chances, neither team could find the back of the net and at the final whistle the result was a disappointing 0-0. Well done to the players: Max, Brandon, Mackenzie, Ben, Freddie, Louis, Taffy, Jack, Josh and Edward.

 

Hockey and Futsal

On Friday afternoon we took a Year 4 and Year 6 team to the hockey and futsal festival at Luton Sixth Form College. This was a non-competitive event, designed for pupils to gain competitive experience and both teams did very well. The hockey team won 3 matches, drew 1 and lost 1. The futsal team won 4 matches and lost 1. A brilliant effort from all our pupils, well done...

Hockey team: Sophie, Evie, Maria, Freddie, Aarav, Mikail and Mevinton.

Futsal team: Ayaan, Fraser, Anas, Ethan, Purbasha, Emily and Maahi

Boccia

- Runners Up! smiley

 

On Friday we took nine children to Luton Sixth Form college for the Luton Schools Boccia Competition. Boccia is a fun and inclusive game similar to bowls, in which two teams try and aim to get their 6 balls closer to the target ball (known as the jack) than their opponent's. The more balls you have closer to the jack than your opponent, the more points you score.

 

We had three teams and each team took part in a different group against other schools from across the town, all of which qualified from their groups to the knockout stages. Bushmead Reds had been knocked out by the quarter-finals and Bushmead Blues lost 2-1 to Wenlock Reds in their quarter-finals match. Bushmead Whites were still going strong though and made it all the way to the final against Wenlock Yellows. After a very tense final, Wenlock finished up as eventual winners, narrowly beating us 4-3, but the silver medals eased the disappointment. For detailed results, see attached document below.

 

Well done to everyone involved, a great result!

Badminton Competition

Runners Up - SILVER MEDALS!

 

On Wednesday we took our Year 6 boys and girls badminton teams to the annual competition at Inspire. The event started off with a mini-league against other schools during the morning session to see who would progress to the knockout stages in the afternoon. The boys confidently won all their group games to win their league and progress to the quarter finals. The girls played very well but finished their group in 3rd position, narrowly missing out on qualification to the quarterfinals (the top two teams from each league went through).

 

The boys played a very tough match against Hillborough in the QF, winning 37-29, before confidently beating Sacred Heart in the semi-final 41-30. In the final, the team played a nail-biting match against Sundon Park. It was deadlocked all the way through and incredibly the game went down to the final point, winner takes all! Sadly for us it was Sundon Park that won the point, the final score being a heartbreaking 36-35.

 

A huge achievement by all our pupils involved, well done!

Badminton and Multi-Sports Festivals

- In Partnership With St Matthew's Primary School

 

A huge thank you to St Matthew's Primary School for hosting badminton and multi-sports festivals for our pupils. By linking up with St Matthew's, we are providing more pupils with the opportunity to be active and to compete against other schools, developing both their physical activity and social skills. Well done to all the children that took part...

Luton Schools Gymnastics Competition

SILVER MEDALS!

 

This week we took our Year 6 Gymnastics Team to Salto gym club in Luton to compete against other schools. Children had to learn and perform a set routine, before performing a vault using a springboard. Both of the performances took place in front of a watching audience and a judging panel - it was very intimidating!

 

Our team performed their skills superbly, despite limited practice time, and we were extremely proud when the results were announced to discover that we'd finished in second place overall. A fantastic achievement for all the pupils, well done...

Cricket League (Indoor) Fixture

Bushmead V Denbigh

 

Our Year 5&6 indoor cricket team went to Inspire Sports Village yesterday for their final league fixture of the preliminary group stage against Denbigh. Bushmead batted first and finished with a total of 255/3. Denbigh had a target of 256 to win but some excellent bowling and fielding from the Bushmead pupils left Denbigh on 216/5 at the end of their innings. A great performance and we looked forward to progressing to the next stage...

Cricket League (Indoor) Fixture

Bushmead V Whitefield

 

Our Year 5&6 indoor cricket team went to Denbigh High School to play a league fixture against Whitefield. Bushmead batted first and, despite losing a couple of wickets, finished with a total of 259/2. Whitefield were then in to bat and had a target of 260 to beat us. Some fabulous bowling and fielding from our children prevented Whitefield from getting close to our score, finishing their innings on 197/7. A great performance that we hope to build on in our future fixtures...

Sportshall Athletics Finals

Years 3&4 and 5&6

 

Back in November/December 2018, both our Year 3&4 and 5&6 Sportshall Athletics teams went to Inspire to compete at the annual Sportshall Athletics event. After strong performances, both teams went on to qualify for the FInals competition against the best teams in Luton in 2019.

 

The finals competition took place yesterday (Wednesday 9th Jan), again at Inspire. In the morning our Year 3&4 team competed first and, against some very tough athletes, finished in 6th place across the town. That's a fantastic achievement and a huge well done to all our children. In the afternoon session, the Year 5&6 team took part and, after some fantastic individual performances, the team finished in 4th place - just outside the medal positions! The standard was very high so coming fourth in the town is a magnificent achievement. Well done!

Sportshall Athletics - Years 3&4

 

On Wednesday morning we took 18 year 3&4 pupils to Inspire for the annual Sportshall Athletics competition to see if they could match the year 5&6 team that qualified for the finals.

 

It's a long competition for the children as they have to wait for their events but, when it came to it, our pupils performed excellently, outdoing the Year 5&6 team by finishing one place higher - 2nd overall! That means we have a busy day coming up in the new year as both teams will be attending their respective finals event on the same day. More info to follow...

 

Congratulations to everyone that took part! no

County Table Tennis Finals

Year 5&6 Girls

 

Following their brilliant performance at the local table tennis tournament, our Year 5&6 girls qualified to represent Luton, along with St Matthew's, at the County Finals Tournament at Lincroft Academy just north of Bedford.

 

The girls played four matches with the following results:

Bushmead 5 v 3 Castle Newnham

Bushmead 8 v 0 Lincroft

Bushmead 4 v 4 Hollywell (Bushmead won 69-67 on points scored)

Bushmead 2 v 6 St Matthew's

 

We performed very strongly against schools from around the county but, as in the local tournament, St Matthew's were just too strong so we finished up in 2nd place overall and silver medallists! Finishing second in the county is a fabulous achievement and something to be very proud of - well done girls! nosmiley

 

A big thank you must also go to St Matthew's who kindly offered to transport us to and from the event as part of 'Team Luton'.

 

The successful team was:

Year 6 Basketball Festival

 

We recently took a group of 6 children to the Luton schools' basketball festival at Luton 6th Form College. The children play competitive games against other schools but their is no overall winner - the event is designed for children to get the opportunity to represent their school and gain experience of competitive sport whilst developing their basketball skills and having fun.

 

The children were split into two different teams for the event and both teams had the same results by the end of the event - won 2, drew 1, lost 1. Well done to all of the children that attended...

Year 5&6 Boys Football Tournament

 

This week we took two teams to compete at the annual boys 5-a-side football tournament at playfootball.net, Stopsley. Both teams performed strongly in the group stages, to make it through to the knockout stages. The standard was very high and, despite playing hard and trying their best, both teams got knocked out in the quarter-finals.

 

Over 40 teams took part in the competition so to make it through to the last stages of the tournament is a great achievement. Well done to everyone involved...

Football Festival v St Matthew's

 

We recently hosted a football festival at Bushmead to provide more children with the opportunity to represent the school in a competitive football match (beyond our normal school football team). We invited St Matthew's Primary school to the festival in which two football matches were played and it was a great afternoon. Our Team 1 won their match convincingly, scoring into double figures whilst Team 2 narrowly lost a fantastic encounter 3-2. Well done to all the children that took part and thanks to St Matthew's for taking part!

PE

At Bushmead our vision is that all children receive the opportunity to become physically literate through P.E., whilst fostering a lifelong passion for physical activity through high quality teaching and an engaging, fun and inclusive curriculum. This vision encompasses an extensive extra-curricular programme of activities and a wealth of competitive sporting events, fixtures and experiences.

 

 

P.E. Kit for all children should consist of:

 

Plain white t-shirt or polo shirt

Plain black shorts

A dark coloured tracksuit for cold weather

Trainers (we strongly discourage parents to purchase plimsolls as they offer little support and can hinder performance/development)

Water bottle

 

These items should be in school for every P.E. lesson
