Sports Update 15.07.21

Budbrooke Sports Day 2021 update

In what has been a different format to usual, all the children can be very proud of their efforts and achievements at the Budbrooke Olympics and made it a fantastic sports week.

Olympic sports from Tokyo and the School Games values were the theme for this year’s sports day. Each class chose a different sport and found out how to play them and researched facts about the sport. They then combined them with the school games values (Determination, Honesty, Passion, Team work, Self belief and Respect) to create a banner and a chant to perform for the opening ceremony video for parents.

Each phase group then held their sports day races, which for Reception and KS1 included sprinting, skipping, egg and spoon, hopping, obstacle and relay and for KS2 involved shuttle running, skipping, sprints, hurdles, obstacle, 600m and the team relays. After the track events there were a variety of sporting activities for the children to participate in during the round robin events and the children could take part in new sports throughout the week such as Goal Ball and New Age Kurling. The children were all awarded a medal and a certificate kindly provided by Wadsworths Solicitors who were sponsoring the event.

Mr Brereton said: “It was a great day of celebrating all the children’s sporting prowess. We found out about lots of new sports and all the children demonstrated the school games values in the different sporting events. They were all enthusiastic and keen to beat their personal best.  Thanks must go to Wadsworths Solicitors for providing the fantastic medals and certificates, for the staff for running and recording the phase events and sporting opportunities and for Mrs Smith for creating the Facebook content. It was a very enjoyable sporting week.”

Well Being Ambassadors

Well done to the Year 5/6 Budbrooke Well Being Ambassadors for organising lots of inspiring activities this year for the school to take part in. 

Rehan, Lillibee, Lucy, Alfie, Ellen and Mia, who have encouraged lots of children at Budbrooke to be active at school and at home, have been awarded Well Being Ambassadors medals and certificates.

They worked as a team to create posters and videos to promote the events throughout the year such as the Budbrooke Mile, Budbrooke Workout, Active April, the Well-Being Journey and their Bowls Challenge.

Mr Brereton said: “Congratulations to all the Well Being Ambassadors this year. They deserve their medals and certificates for encouraging and inspiring children to take part in lots of exciting games and giving them lots of opportunities to have fun and be active.” 

With the Commonwealth Bowls competition coming to Leamington next year, the Well Being Ambassadors set up “The Bowls Challenge” competition at school. This included a wordsearch, a creative kit design competition, a practical target and aim challenge and they also designed their own acrostic poem competition with prizes available.

Prizes have been awarded for the following:

The winners are:

KS1 Bowls team kit design: Lily (Year 1)

KS2 Bowls team kit design: Lois (Year3)

Bowls acrostic poem challenge: Amy (Year 1)

Congratulations to these children and well done to everyone who took part.


Euro 2020 Football Coaching at Budbrooke

Football coaches from Leamington FC visited Budbrooke this week to lead a Euro 2020 inspired session for years 5 & 6.

Mark Fogarty, who has the responsibility for overseeing the Leamington FC Academy, and his inspirational son, Charlie who holds an MBE, organised exciting skill based drills and short matches for the children to enjoy.

Charlie, who suffered a brain injury after a car accident, spoke to the children about his recovery and how he was determined to continue playing football. He has represented West Midlands Centre of Excellence cerebral palsy team and has played in the Cerebral Palsy World Cup.

“It was fantastic to see all the children in year 5 & 6 having the opportunity to learn new skills and play football. With England performing so well in Euro 2020 it has clearly inspired the children and it was great to see the children learning and performing new footballing tricks. Thank you to Mark and Charlie for delivering the fun sessions.”

Well Being Ambassador's Bowls Challenges

With the Commonwealth Games Bowls competition being held in Leamington in 2022 we have joined forces with Bowls England and the Commonwealth Games for our new exciting Well Being Ambassador challenge. 

The Year 5/6 WBAs have designed a challenge booklet for all children at Budbrooke to have a go at at home and in school with everyone who takes part being rewarded with a certificate.

The Bowls challenges are:

-Bowls Wordsearch – Can you find the missing word?

-Design a Kit Challenge – Choose a country and design your own kit

-Aim Challenge – How many skittles can you knock over?

-Target Challenge – How many times can you get the ball into the target?

-W.B.A Acrostic poem competition- write an acrostic poem for Lawn Bowls for the chance to win a prize.


To support these active challenges, we have bought every child a tennis ball for them to use to see how many skittles they can knock over and how many times they can hit the target.

There will also be phase group prizes for the best kit design as well as an overall prize for the highest scoring school in the Bowls challenges.

When you have finished your challenges hand your booklet in to your teacher by Wednesday 23rd June.

Enjoy taking part in the bowls challenges,

Mr Brereton and the Well Being Ambassadors

Are you interested in playing cricket?

Check out the great opportunities at local clubs who are running Cricket All Stars and Cricket Dynamos clubs.

See posters attached for more details.

Active April

Can Budbrooke be the Central Warwickshire School who travels the furthest in April?

Can the staff travel further than the children?

Budbrooke Primary School has signed up to take part in the exciting #Active April challenge to see how many kms the school can travel during the month of April.

The challenge, organised by Central Warwick School Sport Partnership (CWSSP), will also see whether the children can travel further than the staff and other schools in the central Warwick area.

Each week you will need to log the amount of kilometres your child has covered by marching, walking, cycling, running etc by clicking on the Microsoft Forms link for their class and complete the details required.

The distance can be measured on a fitness tracker or by knowing how far a distance is by looking on a mapping website. Remember to be honest (one of the School Games Values) Photos of the children being active can also be emailed to brereton.l@welearn365.com

We will then be able to see which is the most active class/house group and which member of staff at the school can travel the furthest.

Every week CWSSP will create a leader board to see how Budbrooke is fairing against the other schools.

Final results will then be displayed on 5th May with awards being given for furthest distance travelled per school for primary pupils and staff.

Good luck and enjoy being active,

Mr Brereton
