Next week, week beginning 21st May Billesley primary school are driving their own campaign to try and encourage our families and staff to be more active when travelling to and from school.
Next week is national “walk to school week” https://www.awarenessdays.com/awareness-days-calendar/walk-to-school-week-2018/. We are working alongside this national week by driving our own week, Step, Scoot or Pedal. We want as many people travelling into and from school on foot, on a scooter, skateboard, a bike etc.
Being active is so important for our staff, children and families. Child obesity is still rising and the journey to school is still one part of the day that can provide some physical activity. It can also increase road safety and awareness, plus self confidence.
There are prizes on offer during the week with a big draw to finish.
We hope as many families and staff as possible will support and take part in next week. Its a chance to try something new, ride a new bike, break your morning routine, make new habits, become more active, improve your health.
Billesley vs Boldmere
The year 5/6 boys played a massive part in what was an incredibly skilled and hard fought final. The game was 0-0 at half time with both teams working hard to create chances on a small pitch.
Billesley took the lead just after half time with a superb corner that was curled straight in by Romelle. Shortly after Boldmere equalised with a brilliantly struck freekick.
Boldmere quickly went into a 3-1 lead with their CF who was their most dangerous player scoring a hatrick. Tom bought us back into the game with another sweetly struck freekick to make it 3-2 just after Romelle had a long range effort saved by the keeper.
The lads have had a great season and should be very proud of themselves, they are a credit to the school.
The year 5/6 boys football team finished the league season with a 7-0 victory over Severne primary school.
That win meant that a 100% record in the league was achieved. Well done boys.
Champions 2 years in a row.
During the week beginning 23rd April twenty year 5 pupils took part in a bikeability course, either obtaining a level 1, or a level 1 and 2.
The course involved aspects of bike maintenance, cycling ability and for level 2 predominantly road cycling and awareness.
The bikeability instructors were full of praise for the pupils.
Quoting an email response when we thanked them: Hi Mr Mountford, you’re welcome anytime and it was a pleasure. The kids listening skills were very good, they were well behaved and did really well. Kind regards Nadeem.
Well done to all the children that took part.
