Netball vs St Helens and Sauncey Wood

March 17, 2018

Our netball A and B teams played matches against St Helens Primary School on Monday after school. They were both tough matches and even though the results didn’t go our way, we were extremely proud of our girls who played with enthusiasm and sportsmanship, with a never give up attitude.

Our A team also played a match yesterday against Sauncey Wood. It was a high scoring game for both sides but unfortunately it ended with the opposition having scored the higher number of goals. Well done girls for your determination and enthusiasm.

Thank you, as usual, to our parent supporters and to Miss Weston and Mrs Davenport.


Year 5 and 6 Football Tournament

March 16, 2018

Disappointingly, the Year 5 and 6 football tournament due to have been held at Wood End on Monday had to be cancelled yet again due to severely waterlogged pitches. Unfortunately, it is not possible to find another date for this tournament because of the number of other sporting events taking place and the number of schools involved.

Our A and B teams did, however, manage to play matches against St Helens Primary School yesterday after school. Both games were hard fought but our teams showed huge team effort and determination. The A team managed a well-deserved 1-0 win. The B team played really well although the result didn’t go their way.

Thanks to our parent supporters, to Mrs Housley and Mr Harris.

Y3 Swimming Lessons

March 16, 2018

We know how beautifully behaved our pupils are here at The Lea but it is always lovely for this to be noticed by other people when the children are out and about on school trips etc. I wanted to share with you that we received a lovely comment from a member of the public, about how impeccably behaved our Year 3 class were while at Harpenden swimming pool last Friday. Well done to Year 3, you are fantastic ambassadors for our school.

Netball vs High Beeches – WIN

March 8, 2018

Our netball A and B teams played matches against High Beeches Primary. Both teams played incredibly well with huge amounts of determination and enthusiasm. Miss Weston commented that it was the best she had seen them play! The A team match was hugely exciting, with only one goal separating them throughout most of the game, until the score reached 4-4. Our team dug in and eventually crept ahead with an impressive 6-4 win!

Our B team played with the same level of determination in an equally exciting game, deservedly winning 2-1. Well done girls!

Thank you to our parent supporters and to Miss Weston and Mrs Davenport for umpiring and coaching the children.

Tag Rugby Tournament – made it to the playoffs!

February 8, 2018

This afternoon, the local schools tag rugby tournament was held at Harpenden Rugby and Football Club. Despite it being somewhat cold, it was a really enjoyable afternoon for our Year 6 team.

They played really well in all their matches, winning 2, drawing 1 and losing 2. This meant they made it through to the play offs and came a very respectable 7th out of 14 teams. Well done!

Thank you to Miss Weston and Mr Harris for accompanying and coaching the children. Thanks also to our fantastic parent supporters who braved the cold to cheer the team on, as well as keeping a very grateful Miss Weston and Mr Harris warm with offers of hot drinks and blankets!
