On November 15th, Bessemer took part in a live streamed workout led by Joe Wicks to raise money for Children in Need. We raised lots of money, had a great time and got some exercise.
Children from years 5 and 6 have been selected for a number of football competitions including an ongoing league. The children have been very successful and displayed excellent sportsmanship and teamwork at all fixtures.
Children from years 2, 3, 4 and 5 were selected to go on a bowling trip. The team did very well and even won a medal!
The week beginning Monday 9th March is Sports Relief, we hope to use this week, not only to raise money for the causes supported by Comic Relief but also to raise awareness of the government recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day. In order to increase the physical activity levels of the children of Bessemer we are asking children to keep a physical activity diary, the template for which will be handed out in school on Monday 9th March. In order to get stamps or ticks on the physical activity diary children must be physically active in at least three slots throughout the day. Below we have created some physical activity homeworks for you and your children to try out, feel free to come up with your own activity challenges. On Friday 13th March don’t forget to come dressed in sporty clothes or as a sporting hero with a small donation to Sport Relief.
This year we were disappointed when we were unable to deliver the Sports Day we had hoped to but were very impressed by the reaction we had to our virtual Sports Day! Many children both in school and at home took part in the challenges and demonstrated the fantastic team spirit of Bessemer. In the gallery below we have added some photos of the Bessemer children taking part.
