• “Beechwood Primary School is Always Doing Something Good”

Sports Blog – 8 November 2016

Information on last week’s sport as follows:

Year 5/6 Football (league): St Dominic’s V Beechwood – Tuesday 1st November. 8-0 loss on the day with more work to be done on passing, holding the ball, team spirit and cohesion as a team. We held St Doms to a 2-0 lead at half time, but with a healthy bench of all year 6 boys being replaced at half time led to a further 6 goals being scored against us. Spirited goalkeeping from Edson Corser secured him the Man of the Match on the day, but more work needed going forward.

Beechwood V Southlake (A + B) teams – Thursday 3rd November. Southlake travelled to Beechwood on Thursday last 03.11.16 and put up a spirited performance losing 12 tries ( 60pts) to 8 tries ( 40pts), Southlake also fielded a B and C team – well done! Good competition for forthcoming Six Nations Rugby Programme.

Year 5/6 Football (league): Woodley C of E V Beechwood – Friday 4th November. A better performance this time round for our 5/6 boys with a 3-0 loss on the day. The boys kept real shape, passed effectively and showed more team morale and spirit. An early goal from set piece from Woodley and a loose goal just before half time led to ultimately their win, but we managed better defence in the second half with a late goal only being scored from a lapse of concentration at the back. With a third league game this week agansit High wood, momentum could be on our side and leed to a more attack minded game.

Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics: Monday 7th November: A Good afternoon spent at Bulmershe LC for the annual Sportshall Athletics run By Sainsbury’s School Sport where 18 boys and girls took part in both track and field events, overseen by year 9 Bulmershe students. Strong running in particular from our 4×1 relay teams (Maddison Knight-Reed, Poppy Christian, Emilija Zelenka, Jessica Richardson & Ruben Punia, Jerome McIntrye, Josh Davey-Cuthbert and Isaac Jenner) led to us winning our heat and good performances in speed jump, standing jump and chest push led to a good scoring afternoon. We wait to see how were faired in the event overall to determine next round in Spring Term.

  • Beechwood V Highwood (Football: League)
  • Year 5/6 Rugby: Beechwood V Meadowvale
