Fun at football
Well done to our Year 5/6 boys who competed in a football tournament at Leeds West Academy. Please return your kit!
Year 3/4 and 5 mini tennis!
Well done to our Year 3/4 team who have made it through to the SSP finals! The children played really well and supported each other as a team.
Amazing news for BSP Girls Netball Team this week as they WON the West Leeds netball tournament against six other competing schools. Some of our dedicated girls had never played competitive netball before and did us extremely proud by committing to daily training sessions and pulling together as a team. We will now be going through to the Leeds Final and hoping to do Bramley Proud. Keep up the good work girls, we are all routing for you.
Athletics has always been a favourite for us here at BSP and this year was no different. After learning the various areas each lunchtime and working as a team, our Year 5 and 6 children competed in the Indoor Sports Hall Athletic Event at Leeds West. The hard work certainly paid off as our team won for the West area and we went on to compete at the Leeds Finals.
BSP came 5th out of 35 schools - something we are extremely proud of!
Family Cookery Classes
We are extremely privileged this year to have some skilled, volunteer chefs coming into school every week to work with our families on making healthy, wholesome meals at amazingly cheap prices. Have a look below at some of the magic taking place and to explore some tasty recipes.
Recently we were lucky enough to have professional coaches come and deliver skipping sessions to our Year 2 classes for the day. The children absolutely loved this experience and activity - some of them had no idea how to skip and had never tried it before, but by the end were doing spectacular tricks with a range of ropes! In February, 30 of our fantastic Year 2 pupils will be going to the annual Skipping Festival to showcase their skills and compete against other schools. This is so exciting as some children have never competed for our school before! Luckily, our amazing teachers Miss Margiotta and Mrs Hopson are on hand to train the children before hand and ensure they feel fit and ready to represent Bramley St. Peter's!
Cross Country Champs
Over twenty of our KS2 children went to Leeds West Academy to partake in a cross country run (for fun). It was an exhausting and tricky 1500m!!!
Those that enjoyed the experience then joined a team competition: 4 girls and boys from Years 4, 5 and 6. Everyone tried extremely hard and did amazingly well. Fantastically, our Year 4 boys actually won the entire race against lots of other schools in Leeds. Thor Cundy (year 4) even won the entire race!!!
He will go on to run at the West Yorkshire Finals - stay tuned for the results!
Incredible Inclusive Event
At BSP it is important to us that all children feel successful and able to be active, therefore we took part in an Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics Event - taking 20 children that would normally shy away from sport and physical activity.
The children absolutely loved the event, partaking in various multi-sports and making new friends. Some of these pupils have said they feel much more confident in PE and would now volunteer to come to after school clubs and attend competitions. Amazing news guys!
Our KS2 rugby players have been training hard every Tuesday in preparation for the upcoming tournaments. Various tournaments for KS2 children will happening in the upcoming weeks so keep checking for the eagerly anticipated results.
This week, BSP Year 5 team played against Lower Wortley and won by an incredible 6 - 3. Both teams did themselves proud and we look forward to the next match !
Our school took part in the Active Schools Quick Stick Hockey tournament (mixed gender). This was our first hockey tournament for some years and we were all keen to prove BSP has still got the talent!
The team played amazingly, only losing 1 of their 6 matches and we came top of our category!! Sadly, we were just pipped to the post on goal difference but we had an amazing day and learnt so many new skills.
Our talented Year 3/4 footballers had their first tournament of the year, and hadn't even played together before. They played amazingly well, even on the hottest day of the year. Of 6 games, we won 3, drew 2 and lost 1 and came 2nd out of 7 schools! Fantastic effort and lots of fun.
Wake Up Shake Up
After weeks of hard work and dedication after school and during lunchtimes, two fantastic teams (KS1 and KS2) went to compete in the WUSU Final against lots of other West Leeds schools. We were nervous but very excited as for some of our children, we had never performed in front of a big crowd and the competition was held on a huge stage with professional lights and music!! All the routines were fun but also very physical and got our heart rates going.
KS2 performed amazingly but were just pipped to the post by Raynville....but KS1 won the competition and received a huge trophy with our school name on!!!! Well done BSP! We are super proud.
10 of our brave Year 6 pupils volunteered to take part in a REAL TRIATHLON! They had to swim, cycle and run showing real stamina and perseverance. The Brownlee Brothers really inspired us and we even got to hear from them and how they got into the trying sport. Although it was tricky, and we were very tired after, all children enjoyed it and said they wished they could do it again. We look forward to taking part next year!
