Mrs Courtney-Hale took a team of seven Year 5 / 6 girls to the Derby School Sports Partnership Gymnastics competition on Thursday 30th November. It was a fabulous opportunity for the children to compete and as it took place at Mickleover Gymnastic Club, they were all able to use the first class facilities.
Prior to the competition the children had to learn a body management routine, create a floor routine and be able to execute one of two vaults. The girls had all trained hard since September for this competition and it was lovely to see them all supporting and encouraging one another - a real team effort.
The organiser of the competition said it was the largest competition they had hosted for this event. Derby High Primary competed against 14 other teams from local schools. All of the girls gave 100% and their efforts paid off as they were placed 1st in the team competition and Millie Orpwood was also placed 1st in the individual competition.
Mrs Courtney-Hale is extremely proud of the team’s achievements and is looking forward to taking Lower Junior and Infant teams to competitions later in the academic year.
