KS1 Football Competition, Tuesday 22nd May, 4-5.30pm, Aldercar High School. Our year 2 boys went along to the KS1 Football Competition at Aldercar High on Tuesday night on a lovely sunny afternoon. They played 6 games altogether, 3 in the first group stage in which they drew 0-0 with Heanor Langley and won 1-0 and 3-0 against Coppice Primary and Langley Mill Infants respectively. This meant that we progressed to the top 4 to play off for the chance to win the competition. We came up against Coppice Primary once again who we beat 1-0 in a close game but then we lost 3-0 to the eventual champions Corfield Infants before drawing 1-1 with Richardson Primary to finish as runners up overall. The boys did themselves and the school proud with the way they played and behaved throughout the afternoon. They also looked fantastic in their brand new kit sponsored by Jacksdale MOT Centre which was provided to us by Owen Oxley and Full Reptile Collective. Big thanks to all parents who came along to support too!

Y5/6 Hi5 Netball Finals, Thursday 3rd May, 4-5.45pm, Alfreton Leisure Centre. As expected this was a step up in challenge on the Aldercar competition as the best schools from Amber Valley were in attendance. That being said our team still performed admirably to draw our first game against Belper St Johns 0-0. After this we came up against very good teams in Denby Free and Riddings Junior against whom we were well beaten but it was a good experience for the team to have. The commitment they have shown to get better at the game is a great example to others, well done!

Y3-6 Cross Country, Tuesday 24th April, 4-5.15pm, Shipley Park, Heanor. On a miserable, rainy Tuesday 16 of our children from Y3-6 visited Shipley Park to compete in the AVSSP Cross Country competition. We had many great runners competing, some of whom who had finishes in the top 10 and top 20 in their race category, which led to us finishing 7th overall on the night. However in the Y3/4 Boys race Addison Howe finished in a fantastic 1st place, winning by some distance to continue the run of Codnor winners at a cross country competition to 3 consecutive years. Brilliant running by all and a massive thanks to parents for braving the awful weather conditions to taxi and support all the children.

Y3/4 Mini Tennis, Tuesday 21st March, William Gregg Leisure Centre, 4-5.45pm – Our tennis team won this competition to become AVSSP Mini Tennis Champions for the third year running with some terrific tennis. All four players won at least 4 games each which helped to send us through to the Tennis Finals in April. Well done team, we are very proud of you, and good luck in the finals!

KS1 Rackets Festival, Tuesday 6th, William Gregg Leisure Centre, 4-5.30pm – In the end 7 of our children attended this event aimed at improving children’s basic tennis knowledge and skills. Those children who attended were helped to improve their underarm throwing and catching skills, their racket skills and their hitting skills. Eventually this led to them playing rallies against the leaders from Heanor Gate with some of our children showing excellent control and skill with their hitting. Well done to all who attended the event!

Y4/5 Table Tennis, Tuesday 13th February, Aldercar Community Language College, 4-5.45pm – We took along 4 children who had never played competitive table tennis before to this competition and it was a great experience for them. All 4 children had some excellent wins playing great table tennis but also came up against some well-trained opponents who had clearly played a lot more. Despite this we managed a respectable 5th place finish out of 7 teams attending and were close to being higher placed. Great effort by all children and thanks to Mr. Howe for his support.

Y5/6 Football Competitions – Tuesday 16th, 23rd January and 30th January, William Gregg Leisure Centre, Heanor, 4-6pm – We believe the football team finished in a very respectable 5th place out of the 9 teams in this Heanor competition – exactly mid-table – although we haven’t received a finalised table. The boys finished the competition with a combination of convincing and tight wins, but also some tight defeats. Again Mr. Buckle was very pleased with the effort and teamwork of all the boys involved – well done lads!

Y5/6 Football Competitions, Tuesday 5th December, William Gregg Leisure Centre, Heanor, 4-6pm – After starting with a tight 2-1 defeat to Waingroves ‘A’ the team recovered well to comprehensively beat Langley Mill ‘B’ 6-0 and to edge a tight game against Langley Mill ‘B’ 2-1.

Tuesday 12th December – In the final two fixtures before Christmas the boys had tough matches. The first against Mundy ‘A’ was a tight game, with the boys coming back from 2 goals down only to be beaten late on with the final score 4-3 to Mundy ‘A’. In the second game against Loscoe the final score of 4-1 to Loscoe did not do the boys justice but they battled well. They head into the Christmas Break with a record of won 3 - lost 5. With 8 more games to play in the New Year there is lots still to play for. Mr Buckle has been very impressed with determination and teamwork amongst the boys with some great performances. Well done to the Football team!
