Our Year5/Year6 children recently took part in the cross country races at Stratford Park. The weather wasn’t the best but the children didn’t let that phase them. All of our runners did fantastic in their races with some great results from Henry Sheffield who came 1st in his Year 6 race and Liberty Ross who came 2nd in her Year 6 race! The top 10 children from each of the races qualified for the county races and this year we had 6 children from Bussage who qualified. Huge congratulations to Henry Sheffield, Zac Humphries, Liberty Ross, Meg Pacini, Oliver Fisher and Lourens Brand!
Success for the girls!
Our Year 6 girls football team competed in the ‘Len Hutton Indoor Football Tournament’ at Brimscombe last week. They won their first five preliminary matches without conceding a goal which put them through to the quarter final. They won their quarter final match 1-0 but were finally defeated in the semi final. In the third place play off they won their match, which earned them a bronze medal! Congratulations to the team for a fantastic effort!
Year 5 /Year 6 Tag Rugby.
The team took part in their first tournament on the year and had a great experience playing against some fantastic teams from other schools in the district. The children really enjoyed chasing down the opposition for their tags and were ecstatic when they scored some brilliant tries! Well done to the team!
Another year, another great start to the trophy cabinet!
Our year 5/ year 6 athletics team have had great start to the new academic year. They took part in a Sports Hall Athletics competition and finished in second place! The children were delighted with their shiny silver medals!
Our athletics team did themselves proud in the recent District Athletics tournament, where they came out on top as the overall winners of the tournament! What a fantastic achievement!
Intra and Inter Competitions
At Bussage, we try to encourage as many children as possible to get involved in competition. There are two types of competition, intra and inter.
Intra competition involves competing against others in school. We do this through an annual sports day, matches in PE and whole school events such as Spring Cup.
Inter competition involves competing against other schools. Annually, we compete in netball, football, tag rugby, cross country and athletics which are run across Stroud District for KS2, and multi skills for KS1. We also arrange friendly matches against other schools in these sports.
