Welcome to the
It is important for you to stay active during your time out of school. This can be done in your garden so no need to leave where you live. I shall be putting up challenges for you to take part in so keep an eye on this page!
Good Luck and stay safe!
Here is a message from Glynn Hall – some of you may recognise his name as the man that organises all of our sports competitions!!
Morning to Everyone,
I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this unusual period.
Throughout these uncertain times I shall be publishing/broadcasting a daily and weekly programme of physical activity ideas and personal challenges. Some of you may already be aware I have already started this process through social media using the following accounts and will continue to do so.
Please access these accounts in order to view the content and share everything on your own social media accounts to spread the message.
Every Monday at 12.00 I am going to set a competition that anyone can do at home. Entries are taken by sending a video to either the twitter or facebook accounts above before midday on the Friday of the same week. This gives pupils, parents etc a week to practice and improve before submitting their attempt. I know many of you have seen the 2 room jump challenge which is this week's competition. There is still time to enter this week.
I look forward to your entries
Games you can play, while staying 2m away.
Don’t worry if you don’t have volleyballs or nets. You can use balloons, beachballs, sponge balls or any light weight balls that you have available. Benches can be used in place of nets.
Personal Challenge Activities
Dig, dig, dig - An individual ‘keepie uppie’ challenge using only the dig/ bump technique. Challenge players to see how many then can do before the ball hits the floor. Challenge participants to do x in a row / in a set time. Encourage the more-able to generate greater height or movement.
Keepie Uppie – A simple rally game where pairs work together to see how many times they can pass the ball back and forward over the net without it touching the floor. Use a ladder system or similar to rotate participants.
Groups of 3 (or 2 teams of 2 working together)
To you, to me, to you – Players receive the ball from a feeder on the other side of the net. Aim for a 3 touch return. Ideally the ball should go to the receive, the partner and then back to the receiver. Adapt the game to match player’s skill level. Beginners can catch then pass, Intermediate should try for 1 touch passes, advanced should look to bump, set, spike
Sitting Volleyball – Similar to volleyball but all players are required to play while sitting down. The ideal team size is 4-6 players. Players should be positioned at least 2m apart (this gives space to dive without risking contact between players). Players must stay in contact with the floor, but can use hands, feet or heads to return the ball. For maximum enjoyment adjust the rules to meet the skill level of those taking part. You may want to allow double hits, a bounce between hits, more than three touches per team. Rotate playing positions each time a point is scored.

Netball Tournament - 19th May
To conclude the Netball season the main Netball tournament for the Kirkby league was held at Titchfield park on the 19th May. The girls had to play 7 other schools. To start with the girls played in group stages and then went into a Cup and Plate competition. The girls were 2nd in their group and went through to the Cup matches. The semi final was played against Morvern Park to whom they beat 3.2 and then they played in the final against Beardall Fields. Holly Hill had already lost against this team earlier on and so was very nervous but they played very well and came out winners with 3.2 again.
This is a fantastic achievement, the girls have played so well all season and deserved to be the champions.
Gymnastics Festival - 19th May
12 children from year 1-4 walked down to Selston High to take part in a Gymnastics festival, they worked around the hall taking part in many different types of Gymnastics activities including work on a trampet, mirroring and balances. All children had a lovely time.
XC running - 27th April
On Wednesday the 27th April Holly Hill took 18 representatives to Brook Hill Leys school to complete a mile race against other schools in the Eastwood and District. All children were very nervous before the races began as the race was against over 12 other schools with up to 12 girls and 12 boys from each school in each race. The children all ran fantastically! The top achievement was that Leo came in 3rd for the boys and won a lovely medal and helped the boys team to come 3rd overall. The girls also had some fantastic placings with Jaimie coming in at 10th place. Unfortunately the girls were out of the placings overall but a massive well done to all those that ran a brilliant race over a very tough course. Thank you also must go to the parents that came along to support, without you, many of these competitions could not happen.
Boccia - 26th April
On Tuesday 26th April the Key Stage 2 boccia team went to Holgate Academy to compete in the district finals.
The team played very well and the scores were level into the last game. After the final game our team was awarded bronze medals. We missed winning by 2 points.
Boccia - 24th March
Mrs Warsop took two teams down to Selston High School for an afternoon of Boccia last Thursday.
The KS1 team played 5 games, they won 2 and lost 3, gaining a total of 7 points and finishing overall 5th out of 6 Schools.
The KS2 team played 3 games, they won 2 lost 1, gaining a total of 7 points. At the end 3 schools ended up on the same number of match points (7) so the team going to district finals was based on the overall ball points obtained. Holly Hill got 20 points, which was the most, and came 1st!! The KS2 team now look forward to going to the district finals which will be held during April.
Both teams played well and KS1 team was only formed in Jan 2016. Thanks to all adults who helped on the day.
Football - 21st March
On Monday the football team played at home to Bagthorpe Primary School. Mr Smith had kindly set up the friendly between the two teams that he coaches. The boys played extremely well together, showing all the practising was coming together. The score was eventually 3-0 to Holly Hill.
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.
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
There was nearly 200 hundred runners in each race so every single child did brilliantly!
Netball Match 15th October 2015
Yesterday (Thursday 15th 2015) we played against Movern Park Primary School. 8 people attended the match, they were Jessica, Milly, Imogen, Jaimie, Kaitlin, Grace, Carly, Gracie. Unluckily we lost but all that matters is that we took part and after we got a Twix and a drink!

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.

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.
