Before half term we had Golf sessions delivered to our year 4 classes. Mr Clarke a Golf Pro from Chesterfield Downs Golf Club had offered our pupils a chance of some Golf coaching something we have been wanting our children to take part in. Mr Clarke is back now working with our year 6 classes. The children have learned a great deal from their Golf lessons and enjoyed the chance to try out something new.

to represent our school. We are still going well in cup competitions also.

On Friday, 3rd March we played the long awaited Cup football match against Shephalbury Park School. This game was entertaining from start to finish. A game with goals, great saves from both goalies, outstanding team work and commitment from both schools. With the score at 2-2 at the end of 40mins we had to play extra time. Both sets of players gave everything they had and from a deflective cross the ball went into our net 3-2. With time not on our side now and tiredness settling in our players gave everything they had until the final whistle. This game was tough and we still kept going, the players deserve all the credit for this Cup run. Very proud of all that came to support our School. Thank you from Mr Stephenson.

Match report from Thursdays Football match vs Roebuck School.

There's a saying in football that formations don't win you games, Players do. This is something we have been working on at Round Diamond, A team work ethic. Being part of that team means we all play a part to the best we can. This happened against Roebuck School. The coming together as a team from each player was fantastic to see. The work rate from start to finish from every player showed grit, determination and courage. Running out 6 - 0 winners by the end of the game shows how hard these boys work for each other. I was delighted with the team and hold very high hopes for our season. Thank you to all parents who came to support our school.
