We welcomed Rory, our NOSSP School Sports Co-ordinator from BGN, into school this week. He spent a day training our new Year 5 Playground Leaders and preparing them for their new role, supporting our younger pupils with playground games at lunchtimes.
Everyone really enjoyed the training and are looking forward to taking on their new responsibilities. Thank you, Rory for your time and expertise.
We started our sporting calendar of events last week with the Cross Country Competition for all Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 pupils.
The weather was certainly not kind to us, but with lots of determination and perseverance most children completed the course.
Congratulations to all who finished and tried their best, conditions certainly tried even the most confident of runners.
Our top few finishers in each race, will be part of the BLS team to represent school at the NOSSP inter-school competition later this term.

How wonderful to be able to hold a full Sports Day after a couple of years of restrictions. The children were amazing, and the crowd cheered all the racers from start to finish. The roles were reversed during the adult race in the morning, when the pupils loved seeing the adults being extremely competitive! A huge thank you to all who attended during the day and all staff and volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure the day ran smoothly.
Please see the full results table below. Congratulations to Oceans who went one place better than last year and are Bishop Loveday Sports Day 2022 winners. Well done to Waterfalls and Sun who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Fire were this year's Spirit of the Games winners for showing fabulous teamwork and determination throughout the day.
We were very fortunate to be able to take thirty Year 2 pupils to the NOSSP All Stars Cricket Festival at BGN this week.
All pupils enjoyed cricket based activities that were led by Year 7 & 8 pupils from BGN. They took part in games that used their bowling, batting & fielding skills and we all definitely improved over the course of the morning. We were joined by Year 2 pupils from St John's, Longford Park, William Morris and Orchard Fields schools.
2TC will enjoy an afternoon with a Chance To Shine coach next week, when they will also get the opportunity to take part in similar activities.
