Shooting Hoops

Team Equality have been developing their ball skills throughout this term through a variety of games including basketball.
Today, the children took part in some matches in their owl teams and showed fantastic communication, teamwork and a positive attitude. As well as this, the children all took ownership for their learning too during different segments of the lesson. For example, if a team felt that they needed to work on their shooting tactics, they used the equipment that was made available to them to develop their own team-led practice activity to develop this skill. It was particularly nice to see sportsmanship too at the beginning and end of games as the children wished each other luck and celebrated everyone's successes.

White Hall Adventure Day 4

Today was the most action-packed day so far! After the groups scored very highly in the room inspections (including a perfect 10 from one group), the children have completed so many activities: the high zip line, a swamp traverse, the climbing wall, indoor caving,  the cargo net, stream scrambling and even the leap of faith!

We finished the day by beating all the other schools in the White Hall Mini Olympics! I hope you've not made too many plans for the weekend: the children will be exhausted but with a well-earned sense of achievement!

Go-Ride County Final

Yesterday our Go-Ride Cycling team represented Amber Valley in the Derbyshire School Games - County Finals in Sheffield, following their success in local races. They were competing against the best teams from across all nine districts of Derbyshire. 

Firstly, competing in the Italian pursuit, Team Kilburn unleashed a sprint finish to take 1st place with just one second separating them from the second placed team.

Finally, it was down to the team relay, a race which Kilburn had only ever lost once in the last six years. Kilburn made a good start and quickly began to gain ground and overtake the leading riders. Soon, the team's determination would pay off, as they took the lead on lap 3 and began to open up a gap from the rest of the field. Kilburn crossed the line a whole 4 seconds ahead of the next team, meaning Kilburn were pronounced 'Go-Ride Cycling County Champions 2019!' 

A huge well done to all of our Team and a special thank you to their parents for their support.

For a full list of results and more photos from the event, check out the Active Derbyshire Website .
