Sports Events

Football - Hants U11 County Cup


We played the first football match of the year against Beacon View. As a team we played well. We passed the ball around well but we struggled with finishing. Sadly we lost the game but the children were happy with the way they played. We will be practising a lot in the football after school club, at break and lunch too. 



The children have also been focusing on Athletics in their PE lessons. We have talked about running different distances and how you need to vary your pace to keep your energy. We have practised running short and long distances and seen how it effects their bodies. 

Continuing gymnastics


We are continuing with gymnastics in our PE lesson. We are taking our balancing from the ground to the apparatus. The children are trying different shapes on the equipment and finding different ways of travelling around the equipment.


Year 3 gymnastics


Year 3 our focusing on solo and partner balances this week. They love working with each other and I love seeing them working as a team to improve movment and developing their strength.

Swimming with Year 6


We are back swimming and this time with year 6. This year we have decided to do the whole year group in one morning. This is better for the children as it's more consistent and the children will have double the lessons than last year. Year 6 love going swimming and its great seeing them improve.

Welcome back with Gymnastics


Everyone is settled back into school amazingly and we are kicking off the year with gymnastics. This week we are focusing on balance and the children have been really resilient. We are looking forward to developing these skills throughout the term.

Sports day 2019


Another fantastic Sport day at Bidbury Junior School. We had the non-competitive morning where children went round a carousel in their house teams doing all the different events. E.g. Egg and Spoon, Shuttle Run, Off To The Beach and many more.


Then we had all the parents joining in with our parent vs staff races, parent vs parent, parents with children races, as well as our big tug of war. 


After lunch all the years stayed on the field and cheered on the competitive races. Everyone took part in the races with the 1st and 2nd place going through to the final. 3rd and 4th then went on to the relay race. 


Everyone one had a great day and we can't wait for sports day next year!


Thank you to everyone who was able to join us on the day.

We've got GOLD! Massive well done to everyone who helped push forward PE this year. As a school we have gone from not having a School Games Mark. Skipping Bronze and silver heading straight to the top. 

Sports Day Preparation


Sports day is at the front of everyone's mind. We have been finding the children that are the fastest in the year and we have been racing the whole year together. The top 6 will be racing at sports day. We have been practicing the morning stations in well-being lessons and getting them ready for the fun of Sport day.

Cricket Tournament Year 5/6


What an amazing cricket tournament! Bidbury played four games won two and lost two :) They all loved it and found a new love for cricket. Lots of sixes and fours! Can’t wait for the cricket league coming up. 

Year 3/4 football tournament


This week it was out for a football tournament. We took a mix of children that play football for clubs and children who don’t play for clubs and just wanted to give it a try. They all had a great time and we even won a couple of games :) Well done all that played and helped. 

Tag Rugby Tournament

Year 3 and 4 were out again this week with a tag rugby tournament. We haven't had much practice as a team but all the boys and girls were really resilient and worked so hard. They all really loved playing and can't wait to go out again.

Mini Red Tennis

Some of our year 3 and 4's went to Denmead Tennis Club to compete in a mini tennis tournament. We took 2 teams and in each team we had 4 played (mixed with 2 boys and 2 girls). The teams worked together to get point by winning their matches. Everyone had a great time and we can't wait to do it again.


Zumba is now in year 6 :) They are enjoying the fast paced activity and performing the routines.

Netball Tournament Year 5 and 6

The Netball team had an tournament with other local schools. They did an amazing job and won two games and draw one. They loved playing as a team and can't wait to play again soon.

Multi Ball Skills Event

We took some children to a Multi Balls Skills event. They practised lots of ball skills and target games. They all loved the time out and enjoyed competing against other schools.

Inter Schools Badminton Tournament

Just before half term we took 10 children out to represent our school in a Badminton Tournament. All the children had fun and we played schools from the local area. We haven't been playing Badminton long but it was the same for all the other schools. They were very resilience and made the school proud.

Table Tennis Tournament

Last week we took a group of mixed year 5 and year 6 children to a table tennis tournament in Admiral Lord Nelson School Portsmouth. All the children did their best up against some very tough competition. Everyone played against someone from a different school and had great fun.


Golden Cone Trip to the Park

The race is back on for the end of term PE trip. Last term Willow class were the winners and spent the morning at Bidbury Park last Tuesday as their reward. They had an amazing time going on the swings, going down the slid and playing together. They had such a great time they didn't want to come back to school.



It was the first week of year 5 (Rowan) going swimming. This week we sorted the groups into the correct abilities and tested to see who was able to swim 25 metres. They used different types of strokes, including front crawl and back crawl. We also tested to see who could do a mushroom float and star float. We look forward to talking Oak, this coming week.
