Sport Achievements and Celebrations
Since September 2022 we have taken part in various sporting competitions.
In November teams from Bentley and Copdock took part in a tag rugby festival run by Northampton Saints Rugby Club. We played against many other teams with the purpose of improvement and development.
Some year 4 girls from Bentley and Copdcok took part in a football festival at Ipswich Town Football club, following on from the success of The Lionesses in the World Cup.
In February teams from years 5 and 6 from both schools took part in a basketball tournament run by School Games at Inspire in Ipswich. This was part of a development offer to ensure all children can take part despite ability and confidence. Copdock went on to win this overall event.
In March 2023 children from years 5 and 6 took part in a dodgeball tournament at Inspire in Ipswich as part of the School Games offer. Despite dodgeball not being part of our curriculum, the children showed resilience and enthusiasm to take part in a new sport.
We took approximately 40 children from both schools from years 3 to 6 to take part in the cross country event at The Royal Hospital School, which was organised by School Games. One of the year 3s came 2nd place in the year 4 girls event. What a fantastic achievement!!
Coming up we have a year 5/6 football festival being run by one of our local high schools - St Joseph's College, who we have continued connectives with.
