Cross Country Success

Well done to Sydie Peck and Charlie Pegrum who represented the school and Epping Forest Schools at the Essex County Cross Country competition last week.  Sydie came 1st and Charlie came 3rd.  A great achievement, well done!

Text Message

There was some confusion around a text message that was sent out by the Infant School with regards to Sports Relief.  In future, text messages from the The Leverton Junior School will start with ‘LJS’.

Maths challenge.

Well done to everyone who solved some, or all, of the egg themed maths challenge.  Well done to Year 3 for submitting the greatest number of entries.

The winners drawn at random in assembly are: Hamid Lahreche from Mrs Sachs class (lower school winner)   Craig Dowling from Miss Biggs class (upper school winner).  Well done to everyone who had a go!

The solutions were:

Tricky – there are 3 eggs in the brown basket, 2 eggs in the red basket and 5 eggs in the pink basket.

Trickier – the children had the following quantities of eggs:  Jack –8,  Peter–9,  Amil–7,  Melanie – 14

Trickiest – Toby broke a total of 301 eggs.  He should offer to pay £23.83 to replace them.

The next maths challenge will be launched after the Easter holidays.

Football Results

Another good week for our football team.  They beat Alderton 6-1.  A resounding win.  Tim Akpuda received a Green Card for showing concern to a member of the opposing team, who was upset.  This was brought to our attention by one of our visiting team’s parents.

Netball Results

Our netball team had a very successful week too.  Our A team beat Upshire 15-0 on Monday and Waltham Holy Cross 3-0 on Wednesday, with our B team beating Waltham Holy Cross B team 6-2.  Mrs Rumens said she is very proud of all the children in both teams.  Their hard work in training is showing in the games, not only in the results, but in the way they are pulling together as a team.

Year 4 have been learning about St George and on Wednesday, 23 April 2014 at 2.30 they will be sharing some of the work produced at a special St George’s Day assembly.  All year 4 parents are welcome to attend.
