District Sports @ Harvey Haddon Stadium

 

Holly Hill took 40 children to Harvey Haddon Stadium to compete against many other schools in the Eastwood and District.

Holly Hill managed some very good results, starting with the boys relay team coming 3rd in their semi final, just missing out on the finals! After that we had many 2nds and 3rds, but again many narrowly missing out on the finals. Brandon put in a cracking performance winning his 150 metre sprint semi final and then going on to win his final as well!! Brilliant effort! Another great achievement was Rebecca coming back from her thowing event and standing on the podium in 2nd place! Another great effort!

Both teams played well and KS1 team was only formed in Jan 2016. Thanks to all adults who helped on the day.

Well done to all the boys.

 

Netball - 17th March

On Thursday the netball team played at home to Kirkby Woodhouse Primary School. This was the first time that the girls had played together this year. They worked very well together with some super passing down the court, the star players definitely went to the shooters, who managed to score nearly every time the ball entered into their area. The match was eventually won 12-0 to Holly Hill.

Well done to the team!

KS1 Athletics (11th March)

On Friday 12 children from Year 2 walked down to Selston High to compete at indoor athletics, they completed many different activities including both track and field events. The children had a great time and tried their best at each event. Their final position was 5th out of 8 teams. Well done to them all.

Basketball 9th March

Last Wednesday the Basketball team (10 children) went down the Selston High to play against other schools in our area. We were shocked by the speed that the other teams were playing at but Holly Hill soon stepped up their game and played to the best of their ability. Unfortunately, even though Holly Hill were able to score many baskets the opponents always managed to get just one more! This was incredibly frustrating for the team but they never gave up and finished 6th. Well done to the whole team.

Cross Country Running Championships

 

Last Saturday (6th Feb), 2 boys from year 6, Leo and Bradley, attended the cross-country championships. They qualified for this event in October at Ashfield school, last week they competed against all of the schools in Nottinghamshire. The conditions were far from ideal with an inch of mud beneath their feet and driving rain and wind in their faces but the boys did not let us down. Leo came home in 18th position and Bradley in 40th. Overall there were about 90 runners in the race so these results were fantastic! A great experience for both of the boys.

 

Futsal Competition

On Thursday the 21st January seven Holly Hill boys went to Kirkby College to play against the Kirkby family of schools. Our boys had not played much futsal so it was very new to them but they did not let us down. Unfortunately the first game they lost against Hillside 3.0. However the more games they played they got better and better. Against Morvern park they lost by a 'sneaky'goal 1.0. Then they played Kirkby Woodhouse and won 1.0 and then again won 1.0 against Kingsway. All in all the boys were really pleased and they did not end up too far down the placings.

Well done boys.

January sport has started with a bang, there are 4 clubs starting this week (11th Jan) which are Football, Gymnastics, Futsal and Basketball. It is great to see so many children enjoying sport in their own time.

 

We have also entered a few teams to compete against other schools during this term so look out here to see the results of how the children have got on.

Cross Country Running at Ashfield school

Running Team- Imogen, Leo, Jaimi, Bradley, George, Olivia, Carly, Lucas, Sam and Aaron.

Ashfield Running Competition

Yesterday, we had a running competition at Ashfield School. I have to admit I had done it before (BUT THAT WAS A YEAR AGO) I never remembered it being that long!!! So to start the girls ran first and it was long… I would say it took about 4-5 minutes to complete. When the girls were just getting to the funnel (where you get a raffle ticket to say where you came) the boys started. I had only finished for about 2-3 minutes and suddenly LEO was with the girls that were at the back!!! Leo came 1st and I came 8th, I was very proud of myself and I bet Leo was too.

By Imogen Thompson.

The running team all put in a great performance.

Overall the Girls team came 5th out of 25 teams and the Boys came 9th out of 25 teams.

 

Top 3 individual results

 

Imogen  8th

Jaimie  18th

Olivia  25th

 

Leo  1st

BT 12th

George  47th

 

 

There was nearly 200 hundred runners in each race so every single child did brilliantly!

Netball Match 01.10.15

Netball Team- Imogen, Kaitlin, Jessica, Milly, Gracie, Carly, Sophia and Olivia.

 

Yesterday, the netball team went to Kingsway Primary School in Kirkby to play 2 friendly games of Netball. The first match was against Hill Side Primary (who had NEVER played Netball before). We won 10-0 but we understood that they had only just started to learn. Then we went offside while they played Kingsway, we are not sure what the score was. After that, we went on against Kingsway and beat them 2-0. Finally, we had juice and biscuits then went home with smiles on out faces.

By Imogen Thomspon and Kaitlin Dalby.

We are delighted to announce that on the 28th September 2015 Holly Hill was awarded the Sainsbury's School Games Bronze Kit Mark for Participation in sport in the year 2014-2015.
