28/11/18 – Indoor Athletics
It was a fantastic afternoon at the Indoor Athletics today with 44 children representing The Berkeley at the indoor athletics competition. After the fantastic success of last year the pressure was on to live up to our reputation of being so good at this event. The children rose to the challenge and were amazing. Our Year 3/4 team came second overall with 164 points in their competition and the Year 5/6 went one better, coming first with 210 points in their competition. They will now go to the Crewe and Nantwich finals next term. It was great to see so much support at this event and a huge well done to everyone involved.
19/11/18 – Dodgeball
Another week, another sporting event for The Berkeley to take part in! We were so pleased to take three teams to the dodgeball festival at Malbank High School - a Year 6 team, a Year 5 team and an all girls team (the only school who did). The behaviour and sportsmanship of all three teams was exemplary and it was fantastic to see the children having so much fun. We now look forward to the next dodgeball event taking place next term.
16/11/18 – Football
On Friday, the Berkeley Academy school football team took part in the final stages of the Crewe and Nantwich league after qualifying second in their group a few weeks before. Unfortunately they were beaten by Pear Tree and Weaver on the day but we are very proud of all the children who took part for getting to this stage of the competition and playing well as a team.
15/11/18 – Basketball
The Berkeley took two teams to Brine Leas today to take part in a basketball competition. After both teams won their first match, the remaining games were all very close and ended in a few games being drawn and two narrow losses. It was great to see the children working together as a team and never giving up - well done!
13/11/18 – KS1 Indoor Athletics
Twenty of our Year 2 children attended an Indoor Athletics Festival at South Cheshire College today to take part in six different events, including throwing, jumping and running. Our children were a credit to the school in the way they performed and their behaviour was outstanding. It was great to see so many mums and dads come along to watch and cheer on the children. Well done to all the children involved; we are really proud of you!
22/10/18 – Football League Matches
Our school football team played their first league matches of the season on Monday night with four different games being played. After losing the first game against the Weaver, the children showed great team spirit to come back and win their final three games convincingly against Nantwich Academy, Acton and Calveley. The children are now looking forward to playing in further games after the half term.
15/10/18 – Change 4 Life Champions Training
Six of our Year 5/6 children were chosen to attend a Change4Life Champions Training Workshop at South Cheshire College. These children are members of the sports council and were taught new skills so that they can help to organise and deliver activities in school to encourage everyone to be active at playtimes. The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school and came back with lots of ideas that they want to try out.
12/10/18 – Year 2 Football
The Year two children who took part were fantastic ambassadors for our school and not only played brilliantly well (won 3, drew 3 and lost only one) but also behaved in such a sensible way. We are really proud of all the children who took part as this was the first time many of these children has represented The Berkeley against other schools.
11/10/18 – Girls’ Football
This year we had a huge interest in girls’ football in KS2 and therefore took three Y5/6 teams and two Y3/4 teams to take part at Crewe Alex Soccer Centre. It was great to see the girls playing with such enthusiasm in the event and we were delighted that one of our Year 5/6 teams came 2nd and one of our Year 3/4 teams won the event and will now represent Crewe and Nantwich in a county final.
08/10/18 – Hockey
Two teams went to Ruskin High School to take part in a Quick Sticks event. One team took part in a completion and came 3rd overall. Our other team took part in a festival against four other schools and won every match and came 1st. A brilliant effort from both teams.
04/10/18 – Tag Rugby
Over thirty children from Year 5/6 represented The Berkeley at the tag rugby competition at The Vagrants today. We were able to enter three teams with many children representing the school for the first time. After beating several schools in their group, one of our teams took part in a final group of games against other winning schools. The Berkeley were the winners of this and therefore won the whole competition. These children will now represent Crewe and Nantwich at the County finals in the Spring term.
02/10/18 – Cross Country
Lots of hardy children battled against the wind and the rain last night to take part in the first cross country competition of the year. Here are the results:
Year 3 boys = 1st Year 3 girls = 5th
Year 4 boys = 6th Year 4 girls = 6th
Year 5 boys = 4th Year 5 girls = 2nd

20/09/18 – Quad Kids Competition
On Monday, two teams from Year 5/6 and one team from Year 3/4 entered the Crewe and Nantwich Quad Kids competition. This involved every child taking part in four events: sprint, long run, throwing and standing long jump. For every event each child was awarded points for how well they had done and then the points were added together. Our Year 5/6 teams came 3rd with 1426 points and 8th with 1074 points. Our Year 3/4 team came 4th with 1095 points in their competition. Well done to all the children who took part.
