Sports clubs

Published on 22 November 2019

Autumn sees the return of our lunchtime gymnastics clubs. Due to the overwhelming numbers of children wanting to be involved this year we have a Y3 club on a Tuesday, a Y4 club on a Wednesday and two Y5/6 clubs. All children learn body management and floor routines and some children get to 'vault' in preparation for the competitions later on this term and early next term. 

Tennis club has now resumed on a Monday after school and Soccerstars continues on a Friday evening.

After the success and interest for the basketball club last school year we have secured Derby Trailblazers again this term to run an after school basketball club on a Thursday evening. If anyone is interested in joining then please do come and speak to Mrs Gallimore as there are places still available. 

I am also pleased to announce that this year we have held trials for a school football team and after many children tried out we have a squad of 16 children who now train on a Tuesday evening after school. The squad will continue to work together on their football skills and over the course of the school year we will arrange matches against local schools to put our skills into action. Thank you to Chris from Soccerstars who ran the trials and now runs the school team for us.
