District Sports

June 30, 2017

Heavy rain forced the postponement of District Sports on Tuesday, but fortunately held off on yesterday afternoon to enable all local primary schools to gather at Sir John Lawes for the annual athletics track and field event. Some of our pupils from Years 3 to 6 took part and ran their socks off, not forgetting those in the field events who threw or jumped with all their effort! Well done to everyone who competed – you all did brilliantly and your behaviour was exemplary throughout. I was particularly impressed with the support you gave to other schools, particularly to those participants who weren’t the fastest in their races! We are so proud of you. You were fantastic ambassadors for our school.

Highlights of the evening were Marlena winning the Year 5 girls standing long jump, Jessie coming third in the Year 5 girls flat race final and the Y5 girls relay team being our only team to reach the final.

Thank you to Mrs Cross for organising and coaching the teams, and to Mrs Collins and Mrs Davenport who accompanied and supported the children with Mrs Cross and myself. I’m sure all parents and carers who came along to watch will agree that it was a really enjoyable evening.


Sports Day

June 22, 2017

After an incredibly hot few days, the rain made a brief attempt to put a dampener on our Sports Day today but failed miserably!

Everyone had a really fun morning, both the children participating and adults who came along to watch. Well done to Topaz who were the overall winners.

Thank you to our PTA who provided tea and coffee for parents and carers.


Kwik Cricket

June 19, 2017

Some of our Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in the local schools Kwik Cricket tournament held at Harpenden Cricket Club today. It was an extremely hot day as you will know! The children did so well under such conditions, playing 6 very closely contested matches. Although they narrowly lost their first 5 matches, the celebrations were lovely to see when they won their final match! They were fantastic ambassadors for the school, behaving impeccably throughout the day.

Well done to Joseph and Sarah in Year 6 and Jessie, Amy St, Izzy, Rhys, Matty, Josh Cherry and Shozib in Year 5. Thank you to Miss Weston and Mrs Housley for accompanying the children. Also, thank you to the parents who came along with ice creams and cold water for our team – it was much appreciated!


Year 1 Sports Morning

June 14, 2017

This morning, Year 1 took part in a sports morning along with Manland and Sauncey Wood, which was held at Manland Primary School. The weather was lovely and everyone had an enjoyable time. There were 6 different sporting activities and our Year 1 team did really well, winning 2 of them. They won the ball and scoop race, and the bean bag throwing competition. Well done everyone!

Thank you to our helpers, Mrs Adetayo, Mrs Gudmundsdottir and Miss Moore.


Rounders Tournament

June 13, 2017

Some of our pupils from Year 5 and 6 took part in the local schools’ Rounders Tournament held at Redbourn Junior School this afternoon. They played 6 matches, winning one and drawing one, only narrowly losing the others. They all played really well and their behaviour was impeccable! Well done for being fantastic ambassadors for our school.

Thank you to Mrs Housley and Miss Weston for accompanying the children.


Football Tournament at Sauncey Wood

May 9, 2017

Some of our pupils from Year 3 and 4 took part in the local schools football tournament held at Sauncey Wood primary today. This was the first time the team played together and everyone gave an outstanding performance. They played 4 matches, and although the results didn’t go their way, the boys played with huge amounts of enthusiasm and effort. They should feel very proud of themselves.

Thank you to Mrs Housley and Mr Harris for accompanying the children to the tournament.


Chess Tournament

April 25, 2017

This afternoon Mrs Swinson accompanied our team of chess players (Rory, Ben, Matthew and Leo in Year 6, and Nathan and Rhys in Year 5) to the local schools chess tournament at High Beeches.

They each played 3 hard fought matches each, winning some and losing some. The results meant that they then each had to play another match against The Grove to decide 9th and 10th place. They won 4 out of 6 which placed them a well deserved 9th out of 14 teams. Very well done boys!
