House Handball (y5/6)

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Thursday Oct 19, 2017 Under Sports News, Years 5 and 6

On Wednesday 18th October we held our first house tournament of 2017/18. Teams from each of the four houses finished off our unit of work on invasion games with a handball tournament, demonstrating their skills and teamwork.

The afternoon was a great success, with some entertaining, end-to-end games providing lots of drama. It was interesting to see how each team developed their tactics as the games went on, playing to their individual strengths as well as working as teams to get the best results. In the end, it was Chantry with their solid goalkeeper, some excellent team spirit and some powerful shooting that saw them top the group. Congratulations!

Football Focus

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Monday Oct 16, 2017 Under Uncategorized

On a cold and windy Wednesday on the 11th October, Bedale took 16 boys to the Level 1 cluster football tournament. Following the success of last years year 6s, everyone was eager to impress…

The teams were split into 2 groups, meaning they wouldn’t have a chance of playing each other until after the group stages. First game saw the nerves settle as Bedale Blue came out 2-0 winners against Thornton Watlass with excellent team-worked goals from Leo and Charlie.

Over to Bedale Purple; this is when they really set a marker down. After watching and supporting their fellow team mates on pitch 2, they wanted to continue this Bedale success which came with a goal fest of 5-0 against Pickhill with Ben M and Harley scoring alongside the prolific Jake who bagged his hat trick.

Games kept on coming and Bedale were storming through. Blue team went on to win against Burneston and a tough game against Kellbank 4-0 and 1-0 respectively with more goals from Charlie and Leo (2) then a new ‘Jamie Vardy’ in Sam (2).

Bedale Purple swiftly followed with successive wins against favourites RAF Leeming (3-0) and Crakehall (4-0). The main feature of those games was the highly skilful and composed Harley who scored 2 hat tricks (not too sure about the celebrations mind!) and Jake with the other.

Into the semis- Bedale Blue v RAF and Bedale Purple v Thornton Watlass.

Tense moments as each Bedale knew that a win would see an all Bedale finale. Mr Holmes and Mrs Turnbull were torn between the games as they were both on at the same time! Each time they looked away, action happened at either go. Parents cheering on both sides. Atmosphere was great.

Ben M stepped up for Purples and scored 2 rather good goals with a consolation goal from Harley to win theirs 3-0. All eyes on Blue…

Charlie must have had a boost in his packed lunch as for a moment, he turned into Messi! 2 goals helped the team guide themselves into the final with a 2-0.

All the boys had conducted themselves well throughout showing huge amounts of respect to the organiser (Mr Fern), referees, coaches, opposing players and to the teachers.

Therefore, the final result was inevitable -a Bedale victory. In the light of the tournament, we finished with mixed teams and an 8 v 8 so everyone got to play. The only downside to the whole afternoon was that one of the keepers had to concede a goal for the first time. Remy was the unfortunate one and he also got a bit of bust lip in the process but it didn’t stop him from being the brick wall that he had been. Special mention to all the players who participated. Defences were outstanding, tackled everyone. Midfield were engines that never switched off and the strikers did what they had to do!

Gervase Phinn

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Thursday Sep 21, 2017 Under EYFS, Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4, Years 5 and 6

On Wednesday 20th September, the pupils and staff at Bedale Primary School had a real treat when best-selling local author Gervase Phinn visited for the day. With tales ranging from swallowed marbles, children with feet stuck in rocks on the beach to bats hiding in store cupboards, he enthralled the children throughout the school and gave his top tips for being a wonderful writer. One Year Six pupil said, “Once again, our school has received a visit from an author but this time from the great Gervase Phinn – he was very inspiring!” Following the talks, he stayed around school to sign books and talk to staff and pupils alike.

The visit comes on the back of other authors who have visited the school in recent times to share their knowledge with the pupils, including Andy Seed and Saviour Pirotta. Hopefully some of the current pupils will follow in their footsteps and they may even return to the school in the future as famous authors themselves.

Some of our Year Six pupils completed their Bikeability ( training this week, showing their competence on the local roads around our school with the trainers from NYCC’s Road Safety team.

They learnt about what makes a safe bike and rider (including lights and reflective clothes for the coming dark evenings) as well as the rules of the road and good bike control.

Well done everyone.
