Sport at Denby Free
KS1 Football Competition
The children were a credit to the school during the Key Stage 1 football competition at Belper. They were really competitive and we played six other schools, we lost a couple, drew one and won even more. Well done Lily, Etta, Barney, Darcy, Jack and Mason you made me so proud and never stopped running! Thank you also to the parents who came along to cheer us on and Matilda and Chloe who helped as photographers.
KS1 Dodgeball Competition
Well done to the children who took part in the Key Stage 1 dodgeball competition at Belper. They did so well taking on lots of teams from the local schools. We won more games than we lost and there were some wonderful moments when there was only one of them left in and they managed to stay in until the whistle. You made us very proud!
Year 4 Handball Competition
Well done to the Year 4 handball team who took part in the Amber Valley Sports Partnership handball competition. The children did a brilliant job of representing the school and won two games and lost two. The children had to play all their games as there were no substitutes and their wonderful spirit was noted with a special award for their resilience and encouraging nature.
Some of the children from Year 1 and 2 represented the school brilliantly at Belper Leisure Centre. They completed in a number of athletic challenges including a standing long jump and speed bounce and then later were amazing in the team relays. Well done!
