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.
On Monday 18th July 2018 Billesley Primary School hosted their first ever girls football competition. The competition day was organised to create an opportunity for year 5/6 girls. As it was a world cup year it was themed accordingly.
We were very lucky to have Solihull Moors FC in partnership with us to allow us to provide a wonderful venue and also information about how the girls can get involved in football outside of school.
Five schools entered, Billesley, The Oaks, Percy Shurmer, Colmore and Brookfields. The competition was played as a league format to decide who would play for the 2 trophies. The top two teams would play in a final for the World Cup trophy, the third and fourth placed teams would play for The Plate.
Percy Shurmer and Colmore played out the World Cup final and the winners were Percy Shurmer in an excellent match.
The Plate went to penalties between The Oaks and Billesley after a 0-0 draw. The Oaks held their nerve to win the shoot-out.
We would like to thank all the schools that attended to make the afternoon a fantastic event.

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.
