Budbrooke Girls FC

On Friday 18th November, Budbrooke girls football team played against Coten End in the first league match.

Although they did not win, fun was had by all. The team worked hard and showed great teamwork and communication skills.

There were lots of positives on the pitch. These included Ella being an amazing defender, Maisie being excellent at tackling who did not stop running, Poppy making lots of wonder saves tipping the ball over the bar to stop a powerful shot and saving the ball onto the post.

Chloe showed immense bravery flying into tackles to stop the Coten End attackers, Amelie was a motivating player, Sophia was great person when it came to inspiring the team when they were getting tired, Faith was a good spirited player running and covering the whole pitch. Florence was a hard worker and looked to make great passes and find her

team mates, Georgia was good at clearing the ball with strength. We want to thank Mr Brereton for making this happen.

Written by Maisie and Poppy

Mr Brereton said: “The girls were a credit to the school. Even though they were losing against a strong team, their heads were always up and they kept on trying. Poppy took the biggest goal kicks I have seen and Budbrooke were always looking to pass to each other and create chances. Well done to all the players. I am looking forward to organising more games in the new year.”

Personal Best Challenge

Specialist sports coaches, Zoe and Tom, from Specialising in Sport visited Budbrooke this week to give the children the chance to take part in the exciting Run, Jump, Throw Personal Best Challenge.

Every child in Years 4-6 completed a series of events including relay races, speed bounce, obstacle races, standing long jump, chest pushes and javelin throwing. All the performances and results have been recorded and every child has now been challenged to to see if they can beat their personal bests in each event when the coaches revisit later in the year. There will be medals for the children who make the most progress in each activity.

Mr Brereton said: “All the children enjoyed taking part in the challenge and performed brilliantly in the exciting events. Running, jumping and throwing are key skills to develop for all different sports so it was great to give the children the opportunity to challenge themselves  The event focuses on individual achievement and having a personal challenge so keep working hard to beat your personal bests! I hope to see lots of children practising at break and lunchtimes.”

St Anthony’s (1)2 V Budbrooke (1)2

In the first competitive match of the season, Budbrooke and St Anthony’s played out a thrilling draw in a match that was end to end and produced plenty of excitement.

In the first half, Budbrooke looked dangerous on the counter attack. Stanley and Henry showed great skill and played some nice intricate passes and Arthur had a couple of early long shots and looked to send over some inviting crosses for Liam to exploit. Ben and Captain Edward defended well and grew in confidence as the game went on with Ben winning plenty of tackles, Edward clearing the ball well and Martin performing brilliantly in goal with some fine early saves, especially with his legs to stop a certain St Anthony’s goal.

Henry was covering a lot of ground in midfield setting up plenty of chances and having some close long shots. After Henry won the ball on the half way line, he ran at the defence. After a few deflections, the ball fell to Stanley who expertly powered the ball into the goal to make it 1-0 to Budbrooke. St Anthony’s were back in the game soon after when Budbrooke hesitated and let the striker in for a confident finish. This time the heroics of Martin could not deny the equaliser. St Anthony’s controlled the rest of the half but the half time whistle went with the score at 1-1.

Budbrooke regrouped at half time and came out for the second half with a lot of energy and belief. Cameron ran the show in midfield, picking up any loose ball and storming up field with pace and power. He flashed a couple of early shots wide and then, after some nice passing and switch of play from Arthur, Stanley hooked a shot just wide on the half volley. The second Budbrooke goal came soon after when Liam, who was full of running and determination, fired a powerful shot low and hard into the far corner after good work from Stanley. Martin, now playing in defence, stopped the St Anthony forwards with strong tackles and then looked up and around for his team mates to pass to.

St Anthony’s then had a few chances with Teddy making a great save to deny the striker. Late in the game a fine through ball from St Anthony’s gave their striker the chance which he took to equalise. Late in the game, with the scored locked at 2-2, Teddy made a wonderful save to keep the score level. The striker took the ball around Teddy but just as he was about to shoot into an empty net, Teddy recovered brilliantly to tip the ball wide. The result could have gone either way but with darkness quickly falling, the full time whistle went with the final score at 2-2.

 

Mr Brereton said: “What a fantastic start to the school football season. Well done to all the players. The whole team showed great determination and produced a great performance they can all be proud of. They kept on going and showed a great team spirit full of exciting football and skill in difficult conditions. Budbrooke showed they can play football and I am looking forward to the next fixture. Thank you to all the people who helped with transport and came to cheer the team on.”

School Games Dodgeball Competition

Budbrooke finished in joint second place in the School Games Dodgeball competition this week.

The team, made up of Year 5s, were amazing and were deservedly awarded lots of points for showing the School Games values of Honesty, Respect and Teamwork.

The event, which featured 8 schools from the local area, was held at Newbold Leisure Centre and saw a total of 128 children being active and enjoying dodgeball throughout the day.

The dodgeball event gave the children the opportunity to apply their throwing, catching and movement skills but also focused on the School Games Value of Honesty, Respect and Teamwork with each team marking the opposition out of 5 for each of those values.

Team work was shown when players threw the ball to others to make sure all team members were included and active, respect was shown when congratulating the other teams and wishing them luck and the players were honest when they were hit by the ball and gave themselves as out.

Mr Brereton said: “It was a fabulous event and all the Team Budbrooke players were terrific and demonstrated all the School Games values. They played with smiles on their faces and were so honest to give themselves out even when the ball had only just brushed them. They can all be very proud of their achievements, especially standing out for being honest, respectful and showing great team work. They were a pleasure to take to the event. Many thanks to the parents for the support with transport.”

 

If you are an aspiring Dodgeball player, Onside are running a Dodgeball club for Year 3s and 4s on Monday. Speak to the office or Mt Brereton for more details.

Girls Football Competition

Budbrooke girls football team finished joint 2nd in a football competition this week at Campion School.

The exciting School Games competition, organised by Year 8 Football Activators, saw teams from Budbrooke, St Augustines, Bishops Tachbrook and Brookhurst join together in a celebration of girls football.

Budbrooke Girls FC, having arrived early, led their own warm ups and team talk in the sports hall as they eagerly awaited the start of the competition.

Each team then went to the MUGA to take part in a football skills session where they developed their ball control and dribbling skills.

After that, each team then played each other once. The highlights of the games saw Ella make great block tackles and Poppy show safe hands in goal with some important saves to deny the opposition. Maisie forced the keeper into a fantastic double save after good link up play and a one-two with Georgia. Sophia nearly set up the lively determined Faith with a fantastic back heel and Amelie got stuck in and covered the whole pitch to enthusiastically win the ball back each time.

The Football Activators then handed out badges to all the players for showing the School Games Values of Passion, Determination, Honesty, Self Belief and Respect.

Mr Brereton said: “It was great to see so many girls enjoying playing football. The Lionesses’ Euros win and the upcoming World Cup has seen a growing interest in the sport and it has been lovely to see the enthusiasm for girls football at Budbrooke. The girls played some fantastic football and the team spirit and passion shone through. Thank you to all the parents who supported with transport.”

Budbrooke Girls FC host Coten End in a football match on Friday 18th November.

School Sport 2022/23

Budbrooke Cross Country - Priors Field

After a 3 year break, cross country races finally returned to Central Warwickshire with Budbrooke team runners performing brilliantly.

The Primary Schools cross country league event, which was organised by Onside and Leamington Athletics Academy, took place at Priors Field school. Recent rainfall had made the course muddy and presented potential tricky cross country conditions for all the runners, especially with the brook which was deeper.

The 1.6km route took the runners around the school fields, along a road, around farmers fields before leading through a stream into the home straight to the finish line.

The Year 5 girls raced first and they supported each other to get around the course with Ella (41st),  Amelie (42nd), Sophia (44th) and a 66th  place finish for Rosie, despite having a stitch, producing a great team effort for the team.

Then the boys had to attack the course which had been made muddier and slippier by the girls. Confusion arose about the route and some runners ran an extra distance. Despite this, they showed great determination and commitment to overcome the difficulties and can be extremely proud of their efforts. Teddy (33rd), Henry (49th), Arthur (60th) and Edward (70th) gave a great team performance.

The Year 6 girls can be very proud of their efforts as they all finished in the top 50. Phoebe (30th) had the stamina to overtake other runners in the home straight, Lucy showed her effective running style to finish 41st with Holly finishing 42nd. Abi then ran the whole race with a smile on her face to finish 49th.

The last race of the event was the Year 6 boys’ race. It was a very fast start and the pace kept up around the first field with Budbrooke runners in contention. Thomas kept to his game plan, staying in the front pack, and then attacked showing great stamina and skill to race away and confidently win the race. Martin (11th), Liam (16th), Ben (42nd), Robin (43rd), Jasper (53rd) and Dylan (60th) continued the great efforts by Team Budbrooke.

Mr Brereton said: “Well done to all the runners. It was great to finally be back competing in the cross country for the first time in 3 years and to have 22 runners competing for Budbrooke was fantastic and shows their enthusiasm for running and representing the school. The team spirit was great. They all supported each other and cheered each other on. They persevered despite difficult slippery conditions and can all be proud of their efforts. It was great to see them run through the brook and I’m looking forward to seeing them run and showing everybody what they can do in the next event.”

The next cross country league race is at Priory Park, Warwick on Saturday, 3rd December 2022.

Budbrooke Sports Day 2022

The Commonwealth Games 2022 was the theme for this year’s sports day as parents made a return to watch the spectacle for the first time in 3 years.

Each class chose a sporting event from this summer’s games in Birmingham. They researched the sport, finding out about how to play the game, as well as facts about star players and records. The children then combined these with the school games values (Determination, Honesty, Passion, Team work, Self belief and Respect) to create a banner to parade and a chant to perform at the opening ceremony. Examples of the Commonwealth Games events included gymnastics, wheelchair basketball and swimming. It was also great to see classes choose lawn bowls and cycling to be inspired by as these will be hosted locally in Warwick and Leamington.

The Budbrooke Well Being Ambassadors and House Captains helped run the KS1 sports day races, which included sprinting, skipping, egg and spoon, hopping, obstacle and relay. Children from Nursery also competed in the sprint and hopping events. After the track events the Year 6s then organised and led a variety of team activities for the children to participate in during the round robin events which included hockey, javelin, curling and speed bounce among many others.

In the afternoon, KS2 sports day events included shuttle running, skipping, sprints, hurdles, obstacle, 600m and the team relays.

We found out about lots of Commonwealth sports and all the children demonstrated the school games values in the different sporting events. The chants and dances were amazing and creative!  They were all excited, enthusiastic and keen to be active.  It was also lovely to see the children support each other and cheer everybody on. Thank you to everybody for coming to cheer on the children. A special thanks go to the Well Being Ambassadors for supporting the younger ones and making everyone feel part of the games. Thanks must also go to Mrs Appleyard and Mrs Tabb as well as former Budbrooke students, Leila and Will, who supported with important jobs. It was a very enjoyable day.”

Personal Best Follow Up Challenge

Specialist sports coaches, Zoe and Edward, from Specialising in Sport visited Budbrooke again this week to challenge the children to beat their personal bests in the throwing, running and jumping events.

Every child in Years 4-6 had completed a series of events including relay races, obstacle races, speed bounce, standing long jump, chest pushes and javelin throwing in January. After practising each event they had the chance to beat their personal best.

Mr Brereton said: “All the children enjoyed taking part in the challenge and performed brilliantly in the exciting events. The event focuses on individual achievement and having a personal challenge.

Central Warwickshire Athletics Championships 2022

Athletes from Budbrooke performed brilliantly as they represented Warwick in the Central Warwickshire Athletics Championships at Edmondscote.

The competition saw the winners of the area competitions represent their district. Warwick was competing against Kenilworth, North & South Leamington and Southam in the track and field events at Edmondscote Athletics Track.

In the sprints, Henry (Year 4) stormed to 1st place and Lillibee (Year 6th) powered through into 3rd place in a very competitive race. There were also excellent efforts from Bradley (Year 5), Georgia (Year 5) and Ottillie (Year 6) who earned valuable points for Team Warwick.

In the 600m Thomas ran an expertly paced race to finish 1st, staying in contention during the first lap and then attacking the bend and using his stamina to overtake close to the line to become the Year 5 winner. Masie also blew the Year 6 competitors away, powering to the front of the field after the first lap and then not looking back sprinted down the finishing straight to achieve a well deserved 1st place.

The Year 3 Boys relay team (Eli, Rupert, Ben & Ellis) required late call ups of James and Finley.  They and the 6 girls relay team of Maisie, Lucy, Ava and Ottilie were not able to have quite the same success they achieved at Aylesford but they all showed the same determination, passion and perseverance and were a credit to the school.

In the field events, Jasper (Year 5) and Lillibee (Year 6)  threw the javelin well for Team Warwick.  Bradley (Year 5) and Ottillie (Year 6) confidently offered to replace missing team members in the Triple Jump event with Bradley jumping an amazing 5m and Ottillie finishing 3rd.

Mr Brereton said: “Well done to all the children who represented Warwick. It was fantastic to have 14 children from Budbrooke be part of Team Warwick and they all performed brilliantly. It was great to see the children support and congratulate each other. They all showed the School Games values of determination, self belief, passion, team work, respect and honesty and can be extremely proud of their achievements. Thank you to all the parents who helped with transport and cheered the team onto success.”

Aylesford Athletics

Budbrooke enjoyed lots of success in the track and field events in the local athletics competition at Aylesford this week and will now have representatives in the Warwick Area team at Edmondscote. There were plenty of strong performances from schools such as Bishops Tachbrook, All Saints, Barford, Aylesford ,Westgate and Coten End which meant the fight for first place in the individual races was very competitive.

Budbrooke were the sprint specialists! In the girls’ 75m sprint events there were impressive victories for Georgia (12.11s), Lillibee (11.31s), who also came first in the javelin event (13.5m), and Ottilee (12.08s). Maisie confidently won her 600m race in 2m 08s while there were also excellent efforts from Sophia who showed great determination to finish, Phoebe, who used her long distance running skills and stamina to pass lots of runners on the final lap,  and Holly who showed great spirit and enthusiasm for running in the tough event.

The girls relay teams continued Budbrooke’s impressive form in the sprints. The year 3 and 5 team came close 2nds while the Year 6 team (Ottilee, Lucy, Ava and Maisie) stormed to a great victory in front of the cheering crowd.

In the boys events, Bradley used his effective running technique to win the Year 5 75m sprint in 11.29s, Thomas led from the front to win the 600m in 2m 08s while Ben, Luke and Finley showed resilience and self belief to finish well in very competitive Year 5 and 6 races. Henry finished 2nd in the Yr 4 boys sprint but with a super quick time of 7.87s meaning he has been selected for Team Warwick.

The Year 6 relay team came 3rd, the Year 4 team finished 2nd, while Ben, Eli, Rupert and Ellis put on a marvelous display of sprinting to take the Year 3 boys’ relay crown.

The boys also enjoyed great success in the field events with Jasper launching the javelin a huge distance (20.3m) to win the Year 5 event, Will came 2nd in the Year 6 javelin competition and there were more impressive performances including Zach (3rd in the Long Jump), and Robin (3rd in the Year 6 Standing Triple Jump).

 Mr Brereton said: “Well done to all who took part in the competition. It was a fantastic afternoon of athletics and Budbrooke did very well. The team spirit was tremendous and it was lovely to see all the children cheering each other on. It was great to compete in the event for the first time in 3 years and it was lovely to see the enthusiasm and pride of all the athletes who represented Team Budbrooke. To once again have children from Budbrooke in the Warwick team at Edmondscote is a very special achievement. A special thanks must go to all who came to support the team on the day.”

Paralympic Team GB Athlete visits Budbrooke Primary School

Budbrooke Primary School was excited to welcome Team GB Wheel Chair Basketball player, Siobhan Fitzpatrick, to the school this week

Siobhan, who is from Coventry, delivered an inspirational assembly to the whole school where she was able to share her incredible journey and achievements from competing at the Tokyo Paralympics to being on the brink of being selected for England for the upcoming Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022.

The Budbrooke children, who were curious to find out about Siobhan’s life as an athlete, asked very interesting questions to find out about the sport of Wheel Chair Basketball and her achievements. They found out about the challenges of the sport, how the wheelchair is adapted for the sport and about what inspired her to play sport and how her parents were her sporting heroes for how they helped her take up the sport of Wheel Chair Basketball.  The children were also very excited to view a selection of her medals and see her demonstrate her basketball skills.

Siobhan and the GB women’s team made history in 2018 at the Hamburg World Championship by being the first female British team to qualify for a final and claim the silver medal to go with a bronze medal at the U25 World Championships in Thailand and a gold in 2018 U24 European Championships.

The Budbrooke Well Being Ambassadors also shared their challenge to promote the Commonwealth Games to the school community by introducing the Games mascot Perry and selfie frame which they well use to inspire and inform everyone about the venues, sports and values of the Commonwealth Games. They were able to use the selfie frame for a photo of Siobhan who is part of the Bring the Power Back campaign and aspiring to represent England in the Wheel Chair Basketball competition.

After the assembly, each class took part in a skills session led by Siobhan where they were able to attempt to control the ball while seated, play a variety of games and even got to sit in her wheelchair.

Mr Brereton said: “What a fantastic day we all had! Siobhan was inspirational and the children are looking forward to the Commonwealth Games coming to local venues this summer. it was great to see the whole school in PE kits and being active learning all about the sport and values. They had a great time practising their basketball skills and learning about the challenges of Wheel Chair Basketball. All at Budbrooke wish Siobhan the best of luck.”

Budbrooke FC finished in an impressive 3rd place in the Leamington FC U11 Cup last week played at Your Co-op Community Stadium.

The cup, part of the National League Trust Competition, was organised by the Leamington FC youth development team and saw the overall winners go onto represent Leamington in the regional event.

Budbrooke warmed up on a pitch where current England sensation Jude Bellingham used to have a kick around when his dad played for Leamington.

Budbrooke started the league format part of the competition well with a strong 1-0 win over Barford with Fin B scoring after turning well and firing a powerful shot passed the goalkeeper. The defence then stood firm and protected the lead well.

In the second match, Budbrooke had to continue the strong defence against the skilful opposition of Heathcote. Toby made some excellent saves and Luke, Finley B and Lillibee made some strong blocks to stop Heathcote players scoring. Budbrooke had to wait patiently and hit Heathcote on the break with Maisie battling bravely to win the ball back in midfield and Chloe, Ava and Jacob forcing their keeper to make good saves.

Budbrooke came up against very good opposition in the final league match against Southam St James who scored 2 early goals.  This affected Budbrooke team morale as they found it difficult to get away and play the usual passing game. The final score was 4-0 to Southam St James.

Budbrooke made it through to the Semi Finals against Barford who proved to be too good this time round. A low finish and an unsavable pile driver gave Barford a good start and despite Finley B and Chloe going close with shots, Barford kept winning the ball back and taking their chances. Toby did his best in goal but some expert finishing took the game away to leave Budbrooke in the 3rd/4th Place Playoff after a 4-0 loss.  

Heads were down but Budbrooke saved their best till last. Playing against Southam St James who had earlier beaten them, this time Budbrooke turned on the style. Chloe raced clear to shoot the ball low passed the goalkeeper to give Budbrooke an early lead before Southam equalised soon after with a low powerful shot of their own. Then Toby made some outstanding saves, tipping the ball over from a thunderbolt of a shot. He then saved with his legs and tipped a curling shot wide. Finley B and Chloe were working the ball well down the left handside to win a corner. Archie crossed the ball in which then went straight in to the net to give Budbrooke the lead which they held on to to finish 3rd in the competition.

Every player received a medal for competing in the Leamington FC U11 Cup.

Budbrooke FC: Toby, Fin B, Luke, Lillibee, Ava, Maisie, Archie, Jacob, Chloe, Finley B.

Mr Brereton said: “Budbrooke FC showed great resilience to keep going after 2 defeats. They all deserve credit for using their growth mindset skills and it was a fantastic win in the last match with everyone celebrating together as a team gainst the team that had earlier beaten us 4-0. It was a lovely afternoon to play football and it was so nice to have both boys and girls representing Budbrooke. Thank you once again to the parents for their support with transport and their cheering from the stands. Budbrooke was the best supported team there!”

School Games Dodgeball Competition

The Year 5 Budbrooke Dodgeball team were amazing and were deservedly awarded winners of the ‘Respect’ part of the School Games dodgeball competition this week. The event, which featured 6 schools from the local area, was held at Newbold Leisure Centre.

The dodgeball event gave the children the opportunity to apply their throwing, catching and movement skills but mainly focused on the School Games Value of Honesty, Respect and Teamwork with each team marking the opposition out of 5 for each of those values.

Team work was shown when players threw the ball to others to make sure all team members were included and active, respect was shown when congratulating the other teams and wishing them luck and the players were honest when they were hit by the ball and out.

Overall 344 value points were awarded with Budbrooke coming out on top for ‘Respect’.

Mr Brereton said: “It was a fabulous event and all the Team Budbrooke players were terrific and demonstrated all the School Games values. They played with smiles on their faces and were so honest to give themselves out even when the ball had only just brushed them. It was also lovely to hear that one team member had been dreaming of the event the night before and was proud to represent the school. They can all be very proud of their achievements, especially winning the Respect award. They were a pleasure to take to the event. Many thanks to the parents for the support with transport.”
