Girls and Boys Football
We had a couple of exciting evenings at the local football tournament held at Duffield Meadows. The teams played some lovely soccer and showed great team work.
Sports Hall Athletics
We were very happy to take KS1, year 3/4 and year 5/6 teams to compete in the local sportshall athletics competitions in October. Excelling in multiple events in both the track and field categories, our superstars took on the long jump, chest push, speed bounce and several individual and team races. The children did brilliantly well and should be proud of their contribution to what was some great competition and fun filled evenings.
We took an enthusiastic dance squad to the dance platform that was held at David Nieper Academy. The squad had given up many of their lunch times to learn and practice the routine. On the night they were very brave and performed their dance brilliantly on the big stage in front of a huge audience. We are very proud of the whole dance squad, well done everyone!
Girls and Boys Futsal
We had one of our best of evenings at Alfreton Leisure Centre. It was a league event and the boys won their league. They went on to play the final and despite having control for most of the game, they didn't score. They were still very proud of their performances and were delighted to come home with their runner up wrist bands and certificates.
Keep an eye out here for sports events we are attending.
Girls futsal and dodgeball competitions coming up this term.
We are really lucky to have some amazing opportunities coming up for the sporting enthusiasts at our school. Gymnastics competitions, cross country, netball(High 5), kwik cricket, golf, to name but a few. And we are looking forward to having them represent us at the competitions this year. Good Luck all!
