    Congratulations to our winner – Firfield Primary School

    Article Preview: “On March 14th, a squad of 8 fantastic, footballing girls embarked on a new adventure at the DW Soccer Dome, Pride Park, Derby. A new experience for Firfield, we had entered a football tournament strictly for girls. With weeks of build up as part of after-school clubs, the day had finally arrived. Travelling with their manager, Miss. Trigg, and head coach, Mrs. Slade, the girls were enthusiastic and raring to go from the outset. Normal rules would apply and there would be group stages, leading up to the knock out rounds later in the day.”

    Blog of the Week: Monday 24 April – Friday 28 April

    Congratulations to our winner – Hadley Wood Primary School

    Article Preview: “In sports we can all be a little competitive from time to time… sometimes a little too competitive, but what’s the point of doing sports without competing to be the best you can be. In games like rounder’s or football we are all trying to win as a team but when you are perhaps ‘one on one’ you feel like you must beat your opponent. Sports day at school is one of the times to be competitive. It doesn’t instil a sense of competition when all children are told to play for the team.”
