Netball Match Round Up - November 2019
The mixed Yr 5/6 netball team have had 4 fixtures this term, with 14 children having an opportunity to be part of the team at one or more fixtures, many for the first time. They had a rocky start with a 9-0 loss against Howe Green, but were able to turn the tables in their next match beating Manden 9-2. They had an exciting and high-scoring match against Hatfield Broad Oak, with their second win 11-6. However, their strongest performance was in a nail biting match against Birchanger which ended 6-6. It was nice to play against a similar level team and have the chance to put their training into practise.

Stansted Family Cross Country Event
The rain paused for us to have a lovely afternoon of running at Howe Green School on Wednesday 16th October. We took over 45 children from Years 3 to 6, and all of them put in maximum effort and should be proud of themselves regardless of their position in the races.
All the LHS teams did very well, with no team being placed lower than 4th. The Yr 4 girls did particularly well taking 5 of the top 10 places in their race and finishing equal first! They will qualify for the District event next term alongside second placed Yr 6 girls, and third placed Yr 5 girls and Yr 3 boys. Special mention goes to our medal winners: gold for Lily-Grace and Saoirse, silver for Ella, and bronze for Emelia and Poppy.

Cricket Update - July 2019
The cricket team have had a great season - despite the rain! The A team came first in their group stage the KAS competition, beating Hatfield Broad Oak and Birchanger easily, and then keeping their cool in a very tight match to beat Howe Green by 8 runs. Last week, they played the semi-final against a very strong Manor Fields team. It was a good match, with fielding and batting skills evenly matched. However, Manor Field’s bowling was better than ours giving them the win this time.
We have also had 2 B team matches, giving some children their first taste of competitive matches. They have’t won yet, but they have improved and learnt so much.
Great Results at District Athletics
The weather was kind to us on Wednesday 21st May, and 39 KS2 children didn’t get wet at the District Athletics! Events included standing long jump, howler throw, foam javelin, sprint, middle distance and relays. Expectations were high having won both trophies last year - and the children are very proud to have won again this year, winning both the Yr 5/6 section and the Yr 3/4 section, and therefore winning overall. It was a real team effort with every point counting as final points were very close, so well done to every team member. Special mention goes to Herbie, Katie, Claudia, Jasmin who won their events, and to the Yr 5 girls, the Yr 3 boys and the Yr 3 girls who won their relays.
