Our school has teamed up with Derby County to be part of the Joy of Moving Home/School Festivals which is an initiative being ran by the English Football League across clubs throughout the whole of England; these festivals are a brilliant opportunity for pupils of a primary school age to be physically active during the current times and part of something that thousands of schools and pupils will be involved in.


The Festival booklet is attached for your own use at home or at school & is already designed with an example layout on how your child may take part in this festival! Please feel free to share the booklet/activities with any other friends or family members of a primary child age.


We have agreed with Derby County to gather evidence & feedback on the festival where possible so please send me any photos of the children completing an activity, any photos of their completed worksheets or any written feedback you have on how your children have enjoyed the festival  - 

The Activities must be completed during this week - Monday 18th to Friday 22nd May 2020.  Good luck and enjoy.


Well done to Scarlett and Leo for having ago at several of the activities and sending me some great photos.


 Dear Parents,
I hope you are all safe and well. I hope you and your children are managing to stay active and able to do some form of exercise each day. We have had some fantastic weather over the last couple of weeks which has made it easier to get out in the garden, go for a bike ride or even a walk. I have also been keeping myself busy running, biking, walking, walking my dog - Flip Flop, Netball and many other various activities. I have just about completed a couch to 5K run programme last week with my husband which we are thrilled about. I would love to see how you are all staying active, I have had a few photos and videos sent to me that I can now show you all. I’m desperately missing doing PE and all the sports clubs. I will be setting some personal challenges very soon. Stay safe, stay ACTIVE. Mrs Shenton. Please share your activities to  


New Wednesday challenge - how long can you ‘plank’ for? Can you do 1 minute? Can you beat my new time of 3 minutes? Challenge yourself to improve your times - you need a strong core...

An excellent effort from Olivia in Year 5, just under 2 minutes, great core strength.

A super effort from year 5 Lily, 3 minutes and 7 seconds. Superstar.

 Thanks to Lily who has set this weeks Wednesday challenge - Can you cross skip at least 10 times, can you do more than 10, can you do it with your eyes closed? Personal challenge - improve your score each time.

Well done to Grace in Year 5 - Grace has learnt how to ride her bike in a day. What a lockdown Legend. Brilliant achievement. Thanks for sharing your video. Enjoy riding your bike.

What another Lockdown Legend. It was Harry’s 7th birthday last week, he had a new bike and  has learnt to ride it during Half term, his sisters Alahna and Grace are fantastic role models. Super impressed with the new skill the Frost family have learnt during the last few weeks. They have been very active, not only riding their bikes but having running races, Harry has also been practising his football skills everyday. Well done Harry, hope you had a great birthday and thanks for sharing your video and photos. Happy biking. 

Scarlett and Leo have tried some of the Active Derbyshire Orienteering Activities during the half term break. They have demonstrated they both know the 4 cardinal points of a compass N, E, S, W, completed a super Scavenger hunt, built a fantastic den, drawn a treasure hunt map and tried problem solving - moving water using a cup. A wonderful effort with great photos and videos. Thank you both for supporting and embracing the resources on offer - a well deserved pat on the back, you are both active superstars.
