Today saw the conclusion of Marathon Club with the 19 participants running the final 5 laps of their challenges in front of the whole school as part of our wider Sport Relief Day events. Well done to the 6 children who completed a marathon, the 10 children who ran an ultra marathon and the 3 children who opted to improve their fitness through walking and running. All of the children showed commitment to participate through the cold winter months and perseverance to run their required number of laps each day.

As a result of winning the group stage of the MK footie league, we qualified for the semi finals which took place on Wednesday 29th January. The team won their first match 2-0 against Chestnuts. Lennox scored early on in the game and Warwick scored later with a well-aimed free kick. Unfortunately, the team lost their next games against Willen and New Chapter and were not able to progress to the finals. However the children are looking forward to playing friendly matches against other schools later in the year.

On Monday 20th January, six children from Cedars took part in a hockey festival where they developed their skills of the game. The children began by participating in mini competitive skills-based tasks against each other where they learned how to control a hockey stick, pass and move with the ball. The festival finished with a few games against teams from other schools. The children will apply their new skills when taking part in a hockey tournament in March.

On Monday 13th January, seven children took part in a badminton festival for children in years three and four. They completed eight skills based activities, working with their peers to score points. The children really enjoyed the festival, with some saying that they wished it was every week! It was fantastic to have some children participating in an inter-school event for the first time. All of the children made huge progress in terms of their accuracy, serving and hitting of the shuttle throughout the event. Their certificate of participation from the organisers as well as their School Games values certificates for passion, teamwork and determination were well deserved.

This year, we are competing in a football league for the first time. The children were very excited about wearing the brand-new yellow football strip. The first league fixture was held on Wednesday 13th November. After losing the first match, the team persevered and played superbly to win their second game. The next fixture was held on 27th November. The team showed all of the School Games values, particularly determination and teamwork, to win all three of their matches. Well done Bow Brickhill! The next fixtures on the league are in the new year. They will continue to train with Miss Baxendale a lunchtimes in the meantime.
