On Wednesday 6th March, Leigh North Street took part in the annual netball tournament at Garons. In total, 19 schools participated and it was a great opportunity for all teams to play against other schools.
Our team of girls were in a tough group right from the start and despite playing better and better each time, we were not able to qualify as one of the top two teams. However we then went on to play against several other teams and were able to secure two draws and a win, scoring a goal in the final seconds!
The girls from Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed themselves and displayed our core values of ASPIRE throughout the day. Well done!
What a brilliant performance! Year one and two have been working hard and training for cross country over the past few weeks and it has certainly paId off! On a sunny Wednesday afternoon several children competed in their races and there were lots of great performances. Many children finished in the top 100 and we even had a 3rd place finish! Well done children you all did yourselves proud!
Final round of the the Turner Cup saw us drawn against some tough teams in our group. We started with a 0-0 draw with Chalkwell with lots of good football on display and communication between the players. We then went on to play Bournes Green with some great football and won 2-1. Our final group game saw another 0-0 drawer against Greenways, which meant we went through as runners up to the semi-finals. Our semi final was against the winners of the other group Fairways and unfortunately we lost 2-0. So we then had to keep our heads high to play in the 3rd place play-off against Temple Sutton. This resulted in a 1-1 draw and it was decided to call it a draw and award both teams 3rd place.
Well done to all the boys that represented the school with great team spirit and sportsmanship until the end. Also thank you to all the parents who came to support and face the howling winds.
The KS1 football team had a brilliant morning at the football tournament on Friday 8th February. Every member of the team tried their very best and we won our first three games. It all came down to our final game against West Leigh. We had both won three games so this was the important one to see who came top of the group. We went 1-0 down but came back in the second half to win 2-1. We are so proud of them all. We will be going to Roots Hall on 17th May to play in the finals! Hopefully it will be a bit warmer and less windy!
Thank you to all the parents who transported to and from the venue and cheered on the team!
A great day at the Len Forge centre on Friday! The boys did the school proud and managed a very respectable 3rd in their group in the super tens - just narrowly missing out on the semi-finals by a single point!
The day started with a 1-0 victory followed by a 1-0 defeat to the eventual winners. We then won our next two games 1-0 against two local rivals: Chalkwell and Darlinghurst. We finished the group with 9 points and so progressed to the next round as part of the super tens (top ten schools).
In our following group games we managed two victories but suffered two defeats meaning we narrowly missed out on a place in the semi-finals by just one point. The boys had a great day and I am sure will be aiming to represent the school again next year.
Well done to the boys and thank you to all the family members that attended for your continued support.
A big well done to the year 3 and 4 girls who competed in their tournament on Thursday 17th January. The girls had a great day (in very cold conditions) and were all able to experience some competitive football. There were lots of close games and Macey in year 3 scored two goals that helped us win two of our matches. Thank you to all who came along and supported the girls!
On Saturday 12th January 10 boys from Year 5 & 6 represented the school in the first round of the Turner Cup at Bournes Green Junior School. The first game was against Our Lady of Lourdes and the boys dominated the game but unfortunately lost the game 2-1. This spurred them on and they won their next game against Thorpdene 1-0. In the final game the boys knew they needed to win, with some goals, to stand them in good stead for hopeful progression through to the next round. A change of pitch didn’t affect them and they completed a convincing win over Alleyn Court 3-0. Once all results were in, from our group we progressed to the next round in second place after OLOL. The next round will be on Saturday 9th February.
Thank you to all the parents that bought the boys out early on a cold Saturday morning.
Four pupils from Year 5 represented the school in the Southend Schools New Age Kurling contest, with 12 other schools this week.
In our group were four other schools, the team won 2 games and lost 2 games, this was enough to get us through to the Super 8’s. The team then played another 3 games and had some narrow loses but unfortunately didn’t make it through to the final 4. Every step of the way the pupils were a credit to themselves and the school, they played with great sportsmanship and manners.
On Friday 16th November 10 boys from Year 5 & 6 represented the school at the Borough Football Tournament. Through out the day they worked hard as a team and showed great sportsmanship and team spirit. Even though they didn’t make it through to the last 10, they spent the afternoon playing more games with similar schools.
Results are as follows;
LNSPS 2 - 2 Thorpdene
LNSPS 1 - 2 Greenways
Earls Hall 2 - 0 LNSPS
LNSPS 2 - 1 Hamstel
Which meant we didn’t quite make it through to top 10. So in the afternoon we then played the following games.
Heycroft 2 - 2 LNSPS
Chalkwell 2 - 0 LNSPS
LNSPS 0 - 2 Fairways
LNSPS 2 - 1 OLOL
Well done to all the boys and supporters who stayed all day in the inclement weather.
Year 5/6 Girls’ Football at Len Forge (11.10.18)
The girls had an excellent day playing against local schools in our area. There were many narrow wins, close defeats and many competitive draws. We couldn’t believe it when we hit both the post and the cross bar against Our Lady of Lourdes but the game still ended 0-0. Throughout the day, the girls showed great enthusiasm and encouragement towards each other and our confidence began to rise. The girls rounded off the day with a 6-0 victory and Zoe even managed to score a hat-trick! Well done girls!
A marvellous performance put in by all of the Leigh North Street yesterday at the KS2 Cross Country. Everyone persevered with their running and finished their races with a smile (nearly). A special well done to the three girls who have qualified for Essex Finals next year by finishing in the top 10.
