The following children were selected to become our school’s Young Ambassadors: Benjamin, Mitchell, Gracie-Lou, and Ella.
Their role is to set up school competitions, find out what the children of our school think about PE and Sport (lessons, clubs etc) and meet with Young Ambassadors from other schools to share ideas.
Their main focus this year will be the ‘Road to Rio’. They will be leading assemblies and setting up competitions with an Olympic theme.
On Tuesday 2nd February, our four Young Ambassadors did their first assembly to the KS2 children. They introduced a competition – Design a new mascot for Rio. The closing date will be Friday 26th February. For Young Ambassadors posters see- 1 2 3 4
On Tuesday 8th March, Mrs East and the Young Ambassadors announced the winners of the ‘Design a Mascot for Rio 2016′ competition.
They were ‘blown away’ with all of the entries and found it very difficult to whittle it down to the winners.
Eventually they decided on the following entries:
Bronze – 3rd place – Ruby Year 3
Silver – Joint 2nd place – Daniel Year 5 and Lilly Year 6
Gold – 1st place – Mia Year 6.
Mia designed Tiki the Toucan which everyone thought was a fabulous design. Well done Mia!
Thank you and well done to everyone who entered.
The Young Ambassadors will be deciding on a new competition for the children to enter very soon.
Some year 6 children have been selected as Ambassadors for our school. They have already attended some training with Mrs East and will soon be leading activities with the help of Miss Hill (Sports coach). The children who have been selected are as follows:Young Ambassadors:

On Monday 7th November six year 6 children attended a gifted and talented in PE event at Derby University.
The children took part in a variety of activities which included:
- Looking at the sports facilities
- Mental wellbeing in sports discussions
- Psychological wellbeing in sports discussions
- Thinking about attributes that make a good sports person
- Healthy eating and nutrition
- Climbing the climbing wall – well done to Joel who climbed the highest and showed real determination.
All of the children had a great time and have hopefully been inspired about what they can achieve and aim for in their futures.
At the end of the event, all six children were given a fee ticket to go and watch the badminton at the university. This event is going to be filmed by BT Sport.
School Games Mark
We have recently been awarded a Silver Award for the School Games Mark for our commitment to PE and sport during the last academic year. ‘The School Game Mark is a Government led awards scheme that rewards schools for the commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community’. We are very proud to achieve this award and we really enjoy giving the children the opportunities to attend after school clubs, festivals, tournaments, Ambassador meetings and training and Gifted and Talented events (at Derby University).
This award will be put up on display in the reception area.
