Friday 5th October was the first playleader training of the year. Ten enthusiastic pupils gained some essential skills, and will hopefully use them to help other children have fun and be active at lunchtimes.
Confidence, initiative, teamwork, communication are some of the skills that our playleaders developed today.
Well done to all of them.
Thursday 4th October Billesley took part in there first Dodgeball tournament. The pupils were a credit to the school in both their enthusiasm and their behaviour. Well done to all six of the squad.

On Friday 21st September Billesley took part in the year 5/6 girls football festival at Yardley wood playing fields.

Thank You to Percy Shurmer Academy for organising such a lovely event.
Thursday 12th July saw the Billesley Sports day take place. Our venue was Moseley Rugby clubs astro turf pitch in which we are very grateful to them for the use.
The day followed a very active, fun and simple format. A series of stations created to test the children’s coordination, agility, athleticism and teamwork.
The day was a brilliant experience for the children, this was achieved by the team work of the whole Billesley staff, who all worked extremely hard in all their roles to make the day such as success.
Ford were the KS1 winners.
Mill were the winners of KS2 competition.
The day was full of fun, enthusiasm and competitiveness. Everything you want for a sports event.
Thank You also to all the parents and guardians who came to support their children.
Thursday 5th July twenty eight of our year 4 children participated a Tag Rugby festival organised and delivered by Wasps Rugby team. The venue was Camp Hill Rugby club. It was a non-competitive event that allowed the children to play lots of matches refereed by first team players. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and gained a lot from the experience.
What a day we had yesterday with the whole school at some point coming up to the beautiful sunny Billesley Common to take part in the annual Red Tree sponsored run.
Each year group came up and ran 1 kilometre in their House teams.
The staff support and participation was amazing, it was a brilliant team effort from everyone.
Parents and guardians came to support and run also which added to a real Billesley community event.
The children ran superbly and some of their costumes were great.
Big thank you must go to Run Birmingham who came and supported the day, with equipment and marshalls and made the whole event very special.
