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!
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!
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...

Year 4 Gymnastics
Our year 4 pupils have been working hard in gymnastics lessons lately, exploring and creating balances with partners and in small groups...
Sportshall Athletics - Years 5&6
On Wednesday afternoon we took 18 year 5&6 pupils out to Inspire for the annual Sportshall Athletics competition. It's a long afternoon but our children performed brilliantly, finishing in 3rd place overall and so qualifying for the Sportshall Athletics Finals in January.
Congratulations to everyone that took part!

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!

Platinum Games Award
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)
These items should be in school for every P.E. lesson
