The start of this term has seen after school clubs on a Monday in between January and February for F2 up to Year 2 do Dodgeball, competitive sports on a Tuesday, Wednesday Year 3 up to Year 6 did Handball, and our football team has a training session every Thursday. The after school clubs between February and April, has seen Year 3 up to Year 6 start Taekwondo, Boccia on a Wednesday for the whole school, and Football training on a Thursday for the Boys and Girls team.
Lunch clubs at the Bramble Academy have seen Year 3 and Year 4 have theirs on a Tuesday and Wednesday, and year 5 and 6 on a Thursday and Friday. Between January and February, every Lunch Club was Handball. This term, Tuesday is Football for Year 3 and 4, and Wednesday is Dodgeball. A Thursday sees year 5 and 6 do Handball, with Football on a Friday. Most Lunch clubs will be an intra-school competition/tournament where children get put into teams and play against each other.
The new sporting partnership with Beech Academy has seen us play a competitive sports game every week or 2 since the start of February during curricular time. So far we have played in games of Football and Dodgeball with the scores being:
Football – Bramble 6-1 Beech
Dodgeball – Bramble 6-5 Beech
On the 7th March all of the Year 5 Class will be competing against Beech in a game of Boccia and Dodgeball, for their PE lesson. On the 20th March the Year 3’s and Year 4’s have a Basketball tournament, and on the 24th April the year 3’s and 4’s will have a Football tournament too. Bramble and Northfield have also been in touch with regards to organising a Football game in the near future.
Bramble have calculated that out of the 160 pupils we have in the whole school, 69 of them have come to an after school club, which is a percentage of 43%.
Also, as of the 27th February 2019 the calculation for the amount of children who have represented Bramble and competed against other schools in events and games from Key Stage 2 is 24/84, which gives a percentage of 28.5%. The percentage for the amount of children who have represented Bramble out of the whole school is 15%.
We have also calculated that the amount of Key Stage 2 children that had been to an after school club was 51 out of the 84 students, which is a percentage of 60.7%. Brilliant efforts!

The Bramble Academy can also confirm they are currently in the process of creating a new Facebook called ‘Bramble Academy Sport and PE’. The aim of this is just to keep parents and children informed of what is happening with regards to after school clubs, competitive sports fixtures, and information on health and fitness that can encourage children/parents to join clubs and be active outside of school.
