BGN Family Sportshall Athletics

This term the BGN Family of Primary Schools took part in two very successful Year 5/6 Sportshall Athletics competitions at Blessed George Napier Catholic School.  165 Children from Cropredy, Orchard Fields, St. John’s, St. Joseph’s and William Morris Primary Schools took part.

In both competitions children took part in various track and field events including; relay races, speed bounce, standing long jump and triple jump, vertical jump, javelin and chest push. 

The first of the competitions took place on Thursday 28th January and focused on gifted and talented students.  The field and track events were closely contested with lots of noise and enthusiasm on display throughout.  Cropredy Primary School won the event and will go on to represent the BGN Family at the North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership final at Blessed George Napier on Tuesday 9th February.  

The second competition took place a week later on Thursday 4th February and was aimed at less active children who do not usually engage in sport and physical activity beyond lesson time.  They completed a circuit of athletic activities in which they learnt and practised each activity before competing against other, individually and as a team.  The inclusive nature of this event ensured less confident children were able to engage in and enjoy the activities.

During both events, the Spirit of the Games value of passion was a key focus area. A child from each team was selected and presented with a special certificate to recognise their positive attitude and perseverance throughout the festival.

Thank you also to thirty eight very capable and efficient BGN Sport Leaders who did an outstanding job at officiating both track and field events and encouraging all competitors.
