Competitions

In 2016-17 we plan to run Level One Intra-School Competitions including elements of Athletics, Basketball, Netball, Football, Tennis, Cricket and Dodgeball. This year, as with last year, there will be certificates for the top 3 boys in Y3/4 and Y5/6 and for the top 3 girls in Y3/4 and Y5/6.

 

In Level 2 Inter School Competitions we are aiming to attend all available competitions run by the AVSSP and will try to organise some other fixtures between ourselves and local schools. There are competitions in Rugby; Football; Athletics; Basketball; Futsal; Dodgeball; Netball; Table Tennis; Cross Country; Tennis; Orienteering; and Swimming on the calendar and most of our after school clubs are geared up for training the children up for these events as well as an opportunity to learn new skills and meet new friends.

 

In addition to AVSSP organised competitions we are competing in the local schools Football League held at William Gregg Leisure Centre, Heanor once again and have made a fantastic start - topping the table so far as of November 22nd.

 

We have also attended the first annual Waingroves Woodland Trust Orienteering Competition which was held in November. The competition was between ourselves, Waingroves Primary and Mundy Junior Schools respectively. It was a great event which offered a great challenge for the children and is a great use of local facilities.

2014/15 Competitions 1

2014-15

 

As of March 2015 the school has run 11 Level 1/ intra school competitions (competition between the children in school), including elements of Athletics, Basketball, Netball and Cross Country. We have had tremendous participation levels across the school and we will look to continue this next year and improve upon it where possible.

 

We have participated in 12 Level 2/ inter school competitions (competition between children in schools across the borough), including Football for Y5/6; Sportshall Athletics for KS1, Y3/4 and Y5/6 and a mixed Y4-6 team at the Sportshall Plus event; Basketball for Y3/4 and Y5/6; Cross Country for Y5/6; Netball for Y4-6; TAG Rugby for Y4/5/6; Kwik Cricket for Y4-6; and Quad Kids Athletics for Y5/6.

 

We have had success in the KS1 Sportshall Athletics winning the event we attended and the Sportshall Plus event which we also won. We finished as runners up at the Y5/6 Basketball at Swanwick which allowed us to attend the Borough Finals at Swanwick two weeks later which was a great achievement for the children involved and gave them great confidence for future events. 

 

We also have a Triangular Tag Rugby Tournament planned for 19th June 2015 against Ripley St. Johns and Riddings Junior held at our school for the first time.

Y5/6 Orienteering 2015

On Wednesday 1st July 2015 four of our Y5/6s attended the Orienteering competition at Charles Hill Leisure Complex. It was a sweltering hot day as the children set off attempting to find all 20 markers, using their map reading and teamwork skills, in the fastest time. The boys set off first to find the even numbers and the girls second to find the odds which they both managed in good time. We eventually finished 9th out of 28 teams in the Borough with Ripley St Johns the eventual winners. Even so it was a fantastic effort on the hottest day of the year, they did the school proud! Thanks again to those parents who helped with transport and supporting the children on the day!
