It has been quite a sporty week in school this week. It started on Monday with the Le Gros Netball Tournament. All the girls played really well and our ‘A’ team won the tournament! This is becoming quite a habit for our girls. Our ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams also won their leagues so it was a clean sweep for Little Heath. I would like to congratulate all the girls who took part and who contributed to the success of the teams. I would also like to thank Georgina Parkinson and Jo Munn for coaching the girls so well.

On Wednesday we had teams taking part in football and tennis tournaments. All the pupils who took part represented the school well. The football ‘A’ team finished 2nd in their group and the ‘B’ team finished 3rd in their section. The tennis team finished second so well done to all who took part.

Today was the Oakmere Mini marathon in which all of Key Stage 2 took part. The event got off to a shaky start for Little Heath as the coach driver forgot that he had to make 3 trips to collect the pupils and it looked likely that the Year 6 were going to miss the event. Luckily the PTA were here as they were preparing for the Jubilee Party so with their support we managed to get all of Year 6 there on time. I certainly would not want to do that every year. In the actual event we had some success with James in Year 3 finishing 1st in the Year 3/4 marathon and Ben from Year 4 finished 4th. In the Year 5/6 marathon Ben from Year 6 finished 2nd and Thomas from Year 5 finished 5th.

We could not have asked for better weather for our Jubilee Party. It was a great event and all the parents who attended enjoyed the occasion. It would not have been such a good event if it had not been for all the hard work of the PTA preparing the food and the teachers for organising the presentations with their classes. I would like to thank them all for their efforts.
