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.
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.

Cross Country Running at Ashfield school

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
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.
