Birchwood Sport Teams
Welcome to the Birchwood Sports Teams!
Well done to our Year 6 Dodgeball Team for taking part in a competition against five local schools. After a valiant effort over six games, with the team improving their ducking, dipping, diving and dodging each time, Birchwood came a respectable fourth (very close to third place) out of seven teams.
Congratulations and good luck to Warton Orton A team, Dordon Primary and Water Orton B team who came first, second and third respectively on getting through to the Final.
Some of Year 2 had fun taking part in a football tournament. The children did very well and played exceptionally together as a team.! Mr Bright was excellent with them as well.
"On Thursday 19th April, Mr Hammesley took some year 4 and 5 children to a football tournament in Baddesley Ensor. We got to represent the school while having fun. We played fairly well and got into the semi finals," Sebastian - Year 4.
"On Wednesday we took part in a Swimming Gala; we faced tough competition from Outwoods Primary, Water Orton Primary and Warton Nethersole. With a choice of four swimming strokes available (freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke or butterfly) our nerves were on edge and the anticipation was high.
We had lots of 2nd places, and one 1st! Well done to everyone who took part" Hope and Mollie - Year 6
Well done to all our sports teams from previous years. You have done yourself and Birchwood proud and made some fantastic memories!
