Inter School Competition
Year 5 Orienteering Competition
On Tuesday 12th July, three groups of Year 5 Pupils competed in the Cluster Schools Orienteering Competition at Shirebrook Academy. Our three teams demonstrated fantastic teamwork, using their map reading and organisation skills to complete the course. Well Done to our teams... The G3's (Aleena, Charlie-Jo and Nikita), Hound Squad (Henry, Ella A and Keaton) and The Rich Broz (Mitchell, Callum and Braiden) We all had an amazing afternoon and cant wait to try out our new learnt skills on the playground.
Quad Kids District Final at Mount St Marys
Following our recent success in the Shirebrook cluster event, our year 5/6 'Quad Kids' attended the Bolsover District finals at Mount St Marys on Tuesday 21st June. All children competed in four athletic activities; howler javelin, standing long jump, 75m sprint and a 600m run.
What a fantastic afternoon! All of the athletes performed amazingly against some very strong competition from schools across the district. Well done to Kian Lyons for his first place in the 75m sprint and Tia Howard for her personal best standing long jump of 1.96m (so close to the longest girls jump of the competition) We are proud of the determination and perseverance of all the pupils that represented us. Their behaviour was a credit to us all. Well Done! Layton Ford, Jake Parkes, Evan Cogbill, Kian Lyons, Dane Stacey, Tia Howard, Morgan Emery, Zoe Evans, Ella Asling and Charlie-Jo Drysdale. A big thank you to our parents Mrs Wall and Mr Lyons for their help today.
