Team Equality

2019 & 2020 Futsal Champions!

A group of 7 y5/6 pupils went to Alfreton Leisure Centre tonight and finished as champions! They played 5 intense games, including a closely matched final to finish off the competition, without conceding a single goal. There were some amazing passes, blocks and goals, but most of all the girls showed great sportsmanship and determination. They played really well as a team, no matter which players were on the pitch and respected each other throughout. A big thank you to parents for your support and especially to Mr Storey too for supporting the children before and during the matches too!

First Mini Leader activities of 2020!

After several weeks of training and planning our fantastic mini leaders finally got their first taste of leading a group of their very own! Our mini leaders were asked to design and lead an activity for a mixed group of Year 3's and 4's throughout a PE session. Mr Barber and I were very impressed by the quality of their teaching and the creativity they showed throughout to adapt their games to maximise the enjoyment of all groups. We look forward to seeing what exciting games you come up with next!

Young People's Forest - Equality

Team Equality had a wonderful morning at Mead Woodland planting an incredible 291 trees as part of the Young People's Forest project. When we returned to school, we thought about which You22 attributes we had shown. The children believed that they were kind and caring towards the environment, safety-conscious whilst using the spades and had a positive attitude throughout.

Girls' Football County Final

Last Thursday, our girls' football team took part in the Derbyshire School Games County Final, following their phenomenal and unbeaten performance at the Amber Valley tournament last month. The girls faced the best 9 teams, selected from the winners of each region across the whole of Derbyshire, this being  from a total of over 400 schools.

The girls showed incredible determination, skill and teamwork, especially in some unbelievably cold and wet weather to finish 3rd place on their first ever representation of Amber Valley in the Football County Final.

A huge well done to all of our team for their achievement and to all of their parents for their support. A special thank you also to Jason, for helping me coach the team on a very, very wet day.


Spellings for 6th December & telling the time
