This afternoon, some of our pupils from Year 5 and 6 took part in the local schools Cross Country event at Rovers football ground in Harpenden. All the children showed incredible resilience and effort and performed really well! A special mention goes to our Y5 girls who were placed 4th overall.
We were particularly impressed with how all the children encouraged and supported each other. We received a lovely email from a Governor attending the event with another school, who commented how impressive it was to see “the friendship, support and teamwork displayed by your students. In the boys’ year 6 race, your entire team ran over to support their teammate who was tiring, and ran alongside him for the last hundred metres of the race”.
Well done everyone, we are very proud of you! You were fantastic ambassadors for our school! Thank you to Miss Weston and Mr Harris for accompanying the children to the event.

Our football A team played a match against St Helens last Friday. It was a close game, with our team just missing out on a draw, losing 2-1.
On Wednesday, they also played against Beech Hyde. This time the final result went their way, with a fantastic 2-1 win. The B team also played at Beech Hyde, and although they didn’t win, they put in a great effort!
Well done to both our teams. Thank you to Mr Harris, Mrs Morrow and Mr Leveson for accompanying the children, and to parent supporters.

Our girls’ football team has had a busy week! On Wednesday, they went to Crabtree Juniors to play in two further league matches. Both matches were very tight and hard fought games, with a 0-0 result against St Dominic and a 1-1 draw against Woodend Juniors.
Then on Thursday morning, the team took part in a local schools girls’ football tournament held at The Grove Juniors. They played 4 games, which resulted in 2 draws and 2 wins; 0-0 against St Dominic, 1-1 against Redbourn Juniors, 1-0 against Crabtree Juniors and 2-0 against Manland. They played incredibly well and very narrowly missed out on a place in the semi finals, based on goal difference! Well done girls, you must be very proud of yourselves, and also rather tired!
As all the girls football league matches have now been played, we thought we’d let you know how incredibly well our team has done – they have played a total of 14 matches, winning 9, drawing 4 and losing just one. A huge well done to the girls!
Thanks to Mrs Housley, Mr Harris and Mrs Morrow for coaching the girls and to our parents for taking the girls to the fixtures and for their enthusiastic support.

Our girls’ football team visited The Grove Juniors Primary School to play 3 matches against High Beeches, St Nicholas, and Kimpton today. The first match was an extremely close, hard fought game against High Beeches, with our team just missing out, losing 2-1. However, they carried on with their usual enthusiasm and went on to win their next 2 matches 2-0. Well done girls!
Thank you to parents who came along to support the team – it really does help and is much appreciated. Thanks again to Mrs Housley, Mr Harris and Mrs Morrow for coaching and accompanying the team.
