Year 2 visited Forest School today. The children had a really enjoyable afternoon making pens by whittling branches. They explored the bluebell woods while searching for bugs and played on the outdoor play equipment. They also very much enjoyed the hot chocolate given to them and were all of course impeccably behaved throughout the afternoon.
Thank you to our parent helpers, Mrs Chapman, Mrs Morrow and Ms Smith.

This afternoon, Benjamin and Matthew from Year 5, and Alex, William, Sergio and Dora from Year 6 took part in the local schools chess tournament held at High Beeches. This is the first time The Lea has taken part in this tournament and although they didn’t finish in the top 3, our pupils did really well.

Today we were visited by Katie Goldthorpe from the Safe & Sustainable Journeys Team at Hertfordshire County Council who carried out scooter training on the KS2 playground.
All pupils in Years 1 to 4 who brought in their scooters were able to take part. Scooting has become a popular way to get to school and helps to encourage active travel from an early age. The children thoroughly enjoyed their sessions while learning how to keep a scooter in good working order, learning to steer, stop and balance safely, and how to ride safely with consideration for others.

Year 3 visited Forest School today. They had a really enjoyable afternoon where they learned how to make pens by whittling branches. They also went on a bug hunt and explored the woods, enjoying the beautiful bed of bluebells (being very careful not to tread on them!). They also had time to play on the rope swings and other outdoor play equipment there.
