Braintree Town Football Tournament - 29th November 2018
Basketball -27th November 2018
This was the first time the basketball team had played together. The competition was only small, with three schools entering. The match was 16 minutes in total, with nos. 1-5 of the squad playing the first 8 minutes, followed by nos. 6-10 of the squad playing the remaining 8 minutes. We played against John Bunyan, who had a very tall player and a very quick and skilful player. We drew against John Bunyan and then went onto play Notley Green. Despite Notley Green having 2 boys that play extremely well together, Beckers held them off for a close win. Well done to the team of: Jesika, Evie, Gracie, Coby, Kyro, Callum,Cody, Harvey, Alfie and James. John Bunyan took first place, Beckers Green 2nd and Notley Green 3rd.
It was a real bonus to find out that 2 teams were going through to the next round, so team, you've got to do it all again!
Panathlon Final - 21st November 2018 Copperbox Arena, Stratford
What a great day we had today. It all started with the athletes meeting at Freeport Train Station (A massive thank you to all parents for getting every child there in time this morning!) The children were super excited as we stood on the platform awaiting the arrival of our train. Once on board (first train journey for some) the children took in the scenery as they spotted places they recognised out of the window. As always on school trips, it wasn't long before the hunger pangs started and a quick nibble on a snack seemed to satisfy most. On arrival at Stratford Station we met the Town Crier, who kindly allowed us a video and photo with him, shouting 'God Save The Queen!' We then walked through Queen Elizabeth Park and down toward the CopperBox. The place was huge, so many children travelling from far and wide. One team had come from nearly Scotland and had stayed over for two days to make a real trip of this event.
We thoroughly enjoyed the activities on offer today from Boccia blast, Kurling, Table cricket, flight path, Harlem hoops, Ten pin topple to precision beanbag.
There were 3 separate pools running alongside one another. After all the events were completed and whilst the scores were being finalised the children had the opportunity to participate in some non-scoring races.
The teams lined up to find out the results - Beckers Green 2nd Place - Silver. Well done everyone who took part - Jamie, Vural, Kai, Logan, Holly, Jessica, Katie and Marley

Football Final - 6th November 2018
What an absolute blast we had at this event - We obviously had a great warm up prior to this event, after walking from Beckers Green to John Bunyan Primary School. This didn't seem to deter the children from giving each of the bootcamp activities 100%. I think the favourite activity was possibly the 'Tug of War' which we were certainly awesome at - Great teamwork you see! Another favourite was a unique take on 'Fitness Fortnite.' For participating in this event, Mi Bootcamp are offering a free session - We look forward to seeing them in school on Friday 23rd November for a physical, muddy session with the Jaguars.
Football Tournament - 2nd October 2018
We may not have had many after school football club sessions as yet but to see our team play together today, you would have thought they'd been playing together for years. 9 teams competed in the competition, split into 2 pools. Beckers Green, Bocking, St Francis, John Ray and Whitecourt Blues were in the same pool. The team played Bocking first. This game settled Beckers Green nicely (Bocking had already qualified through to the next round as a small school) the result wasn't being counted in this competition. Some great initial passing between the boys and fantastic teamwork kept the score at 0-0. Whitecourt Blues result 0-0, John Ray 0-2 (Beckers won), St Francis 1-5(Beckers won) Each player worked relentlessly today from our amazing keeper/captain Alfie, through our defence - Harvey and James, midfield - Taylan, Max, Matthew (who did just what he did in training), Jamie and striker Cody.
After all the matches were played in both pools the points were added up. Beckers Green were the winners of Pool A and Whitecourt Whites were the winners of Pool B. The final was played between these two teams, despite still playing really well, Beckers Green lost this match 2-0. This was a fantastic competition, played in the right spirit, good teamwork and great sportsmanship - how football should be played at its best!
Both teams qualified for the next round - well deserved.
Good Luck Beckers Green!
Team: Alfie (captain), Cody (vice captain), James, Harvey, Taylan, Max, Matthew and Jamie
Teddylympics - 26th September 2018
8 Year 1 children had the opportunity to try lots of athletic activities at Ramsey Academy today. Speed bounce, short javelin, balance and catching were just a few of the activity stations the children visited before designing their own Teddy mask. Boogie Bear even visited and enjoyed having a go at some of the challenges. For lots of the children it was their first journey to a sporting event - They were all amazing and a real pleasure to spend the morning with.
KS1 Football Festival - 24th September 2018
This morning we travelled to Witham Sports Ground to attend the KS1 football festival. The children went round a carousel of football skills and activities, before finishing with small sided games. It was a glorious morning and shortly after starting, the children were soon discarding their tracksuit tops and jumpers as the activity levels rose and so did the temperature. Tiegan received a small silver cup for her amazing effort during the morning. A special mention must go to Ronnie, who stood in at the last minute to cover sickness. Thanks Ronnie!
Clubs - 24th September 2018
We are very pleased to announce that clubs start today. You will now have received confirmation as to which clubs you are signed up to. Please be aware which clubs you are attending on which day, as it is impossible to go round the whole school each day collecting children from each class for numerous activities that are taking place. We have tried our absolute best to accommodate as many children as possible into their chosen clubs, but the majority of clubs are now full - it is great to see so many children wanting to be active after school. We are very proud that our sports clubs are funded through our sports premium but do ask that your child chooses which clubs they wish to try and that they attend each week. Failure to attend on 2 occasions will result in your child losing their place to the next person on the waiting list. If you or your child decide a particular club is not for them, then just let a member of the PE staff know and their place can go to the next on the waiting list - Thanks for your understanding.
