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.

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.

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.

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!

Our A and B teams played their last matches of the football season today. They played two very tough away games against High Beeches but came away with a 2-1 win in both matches!
The Lea is the only school to have beaten High Beeches in the league this season. In fact, High Beeches were the overall winners of the small school’s football league this season. I’m pleased to say that The Lea came an impressive 4th place, a really great achievement – well done boys!
Huge thanks to Miss Sykes and Mr Harris for giving their time and efforts into coaching and accompanying the football teams this season and also to our enthusiastic parent supporters.

It was a busy final week for our netball A team – they played against St Nicholas on Monday and Kimpton on Tuesday after school. Despite losing to St Nicholas, our team had their best game yet, playing with every ounce of effort they had and never giving up.
The A team carried their enthusiasm over to the next match on Tuesday and played outstanding netball, beating Kimpton 7-1. Our B team also played a match and played really well but narrowly lost out to Kimpton. Every girl on both teams should feel very proud of what they have achieved this season, continuing to improve with every match played. Our school came an incredible 4th place overall in the small schools’ netball league which is a fantastic result.
A very big thank you once again to Miss Weston and Mrs Davenport for their constant support coaching the girls and accompanying them to all the matches, and thank you to our wonderful parent supporters for all their encouragement.
