Birchwood Grove CP School

PE competitions and results

Unfortunately due to the situation and restrictions over the last year, we have been unable to take part in competitive sport both within school and against other schools. We very much hope that this will change soon. However over the last year, we have taken part in virtual events, against other schools:

 

February 2021 - The Sussex School Games: The 'Virtual' Winter Games....

Thank you very much to everyone that took part in the 'Virtual' Sussex School Winter Games - The final results are now in!

Following 4 weeks of challenges throughout February, Birchwood Grove finished in joint 29th position, out of nearly 300 schools across both West and East Sussex.... What a fantastic effort! Our adults finished in joint 27th position, out of 150 schools that took part in that category, and as a school we helped the Mid Sussex Panthers (our 'group' of schools that we represent) finish in 2nd place, out of 9 'groups' of schools.

Congratulations to Southwater Junior Academy (Horsham), who won the games by finishing 1st after the 4 weeks of competition. Blackthorns Community Primary Academy (Haywards Heath) finished in second position, and Farlington School (Horsham) finished in 3rd place.

November 2020 - Mid Sussex Active 'Virtual' Cross Country Event....

As part of the Mid Sussex Active 'VIRTUAL' School Games programme this Autumn Term, Birchwood Grove have taken part in the Cross Country event. Children from Years 3 and 4 ran a 1km course on the school field, whilst children from Years 5 and 6 ran a 1.5 km  course. This was optional, and took place at lunchtime, so that no 'bubble crossing' took place. It also took place in the pouring rain! The times for all children ran were recorded, with the top 10 times across Years 3 and 4 and then the top 10 times across Years 5 and 6 being submitted to Mid Sussex Active. 

Medals were awarded to the top 3 boys and top 3 girls across Years 3 and 4, and Years 5 and 6. Their times were as follows:

Years 3 and 4 (over a 1km course):

Boys:

1) Jack = 4:34     2) Connor = 4:41     3) Ben = 4:49

Girls:

1) Isla = 4:51     2) Lara = 5:07     3) Leonie = 5:18

 

Years 5 and 6 (over a 1.5km course):

Boys:

1) Olly = 6:46     2) Felix = 6:50     3) Ben = 6:53

Girls:

1) Suzie = 7:23     2) Imogen = 8:14     3) Eve = 8:14

 

Our top 10 times were then matched up against other schools top 10 times in the area, and the results were announced...... The Year 3 and 4's finished a very respectable 7th out of 11 schools, with St Mark's Primary School victorious in this category. The Year 5 and 6's finished again a very respectable 8th out of 14 schools, with Warden Park Primary Academy victorious in this category.

Thank you to everyone that took part in this event here at Birchwood Grove, with such enthusiasm and smiles on their faces.

 

July 2020 - Birchwood Grove's first ever 'virtual' sports week (replacing the traditional annual sports day)....

Children both in school and at home competed across the 5 different events, submitting their scores online. An incredibly close competition resulted in the Yellow Team emerging victorious! Thank you to everyone for your participation and enthusiasm.... Hopefully next year we can compete together as normal. 

 

 

Below are various results, photos, and information from some of the many competitions that Birchwood Grove have taken part in over the last few years:
