HIGHFIELDS School in Matlock has been at the hub of another week of sports activity.

Ten primary schools came to Highfields for a day of dance.

Three tutors of dance and 19 Highfields dance leaders inspired over 130 Key Stage Two pupils on an Olympic theme. The dances used Olympic rings and were inspired by crowd scenes and the architecture of the stadiums.

The pupils put on a performance of their work at the end of each session.

In the same week, there was a Derbyshire 100 Days To Go cycle event ride out from Highfields. In addition, British Cycling representatives were in school to lead a group of students in cycling.

As the rain came, the students were able to use indoor bikes and loved the computer racing as the bikes were set up to them.

There was also an Olympic animation event.

90 of Highfields’ Year Nine and Ten students were involved and they have painted the 90 frames towards the four minutes film, launched on World Sport Day on June 25.

Finally, British boxing ace Dermot Gascoyne spent the

morning working with students as a part of Highfields’ Sky Living For Sport project.

Year Nine students listened to life lessons and took part in a boxing workshop with him.
