A great BGS sporting week - Mr Baird's Sports Blog

Although the weather has not recently been the most favourable for sporting activity across our region, it certainly has not stopped us making the most of the pockets of opportunity that have presented themselves to us at BGS. 

It has been so refreshing to hear all about the children’s sporting goings-on since restrictions were lifted, and this has been no different over the last couple of weeks, where the children have shared glowing stories of their athletics, cricket, cross country, football, rugby and tennis (to name but a few!) events outside of school. Please do encourage them to share these accomplishments with us as it is often so delightful to just hear them talking about what they have been up to.

A couple of the children that have shared their hobbies and pastimes with the school over the last few weeks were Harriet in Year 6 and Erin in Year 3.

Erin shared some photographs from her first ever time cantering on a horse and was typically modest about it! I know that from when she told me about it that she had worked hard on it and although she would never want to boast, she should be pleased with this progress! In line with keeping active with lots of outside of school clubs, Erin also found the time to share the details of her 8-mile cycle over some grassy terrain with the wider Key Stage 2 community. Well done Erin!

Similarly, Harriet updated us with the events from her sailing club (Ripon Sailing Club)’s third meet of the series. Harriet travelled to the West Riding Sailing Club in Wakefield to compete this time and shared some pictures with the rest of Key Stage 2 in the Celebration of Achievement assembly earlier today. This weekend, she will cast her attention to her home event at Ripon Sailing Club. Good luck Harriet and please keep us updated further as we love being able to learn more about the sport! Please do feel free to contact me on If there is anything that you would like to share with us.
