Three teams from Bakewell Juniors travelled to Rowsley for the final cluster event of the year, the annual rounders tournament. Bakewell performed excellently, hitting some powerful shots and fielding effectively with great teamwork.

After a couple of victories each Bakewell A and B met in the final, with Bakewell A taking the trophy by the odd rounder.


Boccia, Beach Games, Sports Day and Kings Camp visit

On June 20th over 20 children from all year groups joined Stoney Middleton for the Cluster Boccia and Beach Games cluster event. Pete Edwards from Nottinghamshire Boccia showed all the children some seated Boccia, and they also enjoyed frisbee, archery, howler throwing and boules.

After a postonement on June 28th last Tuesday (July 5th) the weather played ball and everyone in the school joined in our annual sports day. The children were split into six Women's World Cup teams and first up were three personal challenges - football penalties, round the world tennis and gymnastic balance beam challenge - for which they earned stickers for excellent effort and determination. Following this we had scatterball tournament where the teams played each other in groups of three before a final decided the winners. The finale to the afternoon were sprint races and endurance races for each year groups which were fiercely contested but fun. 

On July 8th Kings Camp visited school to run sports sessions for year 5/6 and year 3, engaging all the children in these two classes in a variety of fun activities.

On Tuesday May 14th all the children in school took part in a tennis afternoon, with pupils from year 3-6 joining together in teams to play a 'round the world' tournament. The players aimed to keep their shots consistently in court to earn points for their team. All teams showed great teamwork and improved their shots throughout the day. Later that week on the Thursday year 4 travelled to Baslow Sports Field where most of the children took part in a circuit of tennis activities, while Jack, Charlie, Erin and Lucy participated in a mini-tennis tournament. They played singles and doubles matches against Baslow and Longstone, and won both games to win the trophy!

This week, on May 20 and 21, year 4 and 5 learned about diversity in sport, finding out about the variety of cultures and backgrounds of the players of the England men's cricket team. They discussed what it means to be 'English' and the issues and positives of players of different ethnicities playing alongside each other, then researched the diversity of three other successful sports teams: Manchester City FC, England Netball and Team GB at Rio 2016.
