At Bramley St. Peters we offer a range of sporting activities to engage the children, help them stay active and inspire them in talents they didn't even know they had.
Miss Ash, who is actually a qualified coach, coaches the cheerleaders every Monday after school. The tumblers learn a range of skills, routines and techniques (some of which make you want to cover your eyes!). Last year they even won the Active Schools Primary Cheerleading Competition and we are hoping and working hard for the same success this year. Keep up the good work!
Wow! I can barely watch! Skills like this take real strength and team work.
The BSP Stars Dance club is a new one this year due to popular demand from the children. A range of KS1 and KS2 children, both boys and girls, take part. This week they are learning a routine to Ed Sheeran Shape of You - can't wait to see that one.
Look at those concentrating faces.
Miss DD has been coaching rugby at BSP for a number of years now and she even taught Leeds Rhinos star Ashton Golding when he came to this school. A large number of boys and girls from KS2 attend the club every Tuesday and we are preparing hard for the Culley 7s in Summer.
Culley 7s Winners!!!
Athletics is a real favourite for us here at BSP and last month we WON the Indoor Sports Hall Athletics - a huge achievement. This means we are now through to the quarter finals and the team are working hard on the events every lunchtime with Mrs Akhondi. Good Luck!!

Mrs Greenan and Mrs Jobling run our cross country club. The children really worked on their stamina, resilience and technique for long distance running. It was so popular, some children and their families even went to the Park Run one Saturday and have really pursued running as an out of school hobby, amazing news!
Some cold, but happy faces at the Bramley Park Run
Some children's quotes around our running club:
"I enjoyed running club because it keeps me healthy and fit - and it's fun!" Caleb 3LK
"I didn't expect to be running that far but I liked it because it got me fit!" Charlie 3LK
"It was good running at Bramley Park. It was hard but I tried my best and kept going." Gabriella 3RS
We have been lucky enough to have Leeds United come into school on a Friday to run a football club with KS1 - how exciting. They learnt new skills and strategies for play games and were inspired to join football leagues out of school. Hopefully lots of children will continue playing throughout their time at BSP.
West Leeds Activity Centre
We have had the exciting opportunity to take a number of children to West Leeds Activity Centre weekly to partake in some fantastic, but challenging activities that they would normally never get the chance to do. Things on offer are fire building, archery, sumo wrestling and even go-karting!
Our next club will be Netball. Last year we had such a huge turn out we had to have two clubs Let's hope it's the same again.
