Leys Junior Sports Round Up


Autumn Term

Y5/6 Athletics

Team: 8 Girls and 8 Boys

The season got off to a great start with our Y5/6 Athletics Team.  They competed against 14 schools and came 7th.  Most importantly they never gave up :-)


Y3/4 Athletics

Team: 8 Girls and 8 Boys

This was the first time that some of the children had represented the school but that didn't stop their ambition.  They completed against 11 schools and came 5th!  We were also told that our school had the longest combined average for the chest pass.  A special well done to the Girls relay team that came 1st and the Boys relay team that also came 1st.


Y5/6 Tag Rugby

Team: 7 Boys and 3 Girls

Another new sport for Leys Junior School but Mrs Bradley with her love for Leicester Tigers was determined to lead the children to victory.  The team showed excellent determination as it was a very cold day.  They were undefeated in the first round and got through to the quarters, unfortunately with seconds to go to the last whistle we were 6-7.  It still meant that we came 5th.  Not bad for our first go foot-in-mouth


Y3/4 End Ball

Team A, B and C (20 Girls and Boys)

We were lucky enough to take 3 teams to the End Ball competition.  Team C won the Team Spirit award for their determination and good sportsmanship, Team B played their socks off and Team A came 3rd.  Well done teams for representing the school so well.

Spring Term

Y5/6 Boys Futsal

Team: A and B (12 Boys)

We have some fabulous players in both Team A and Team B.  Both teams dominated play but the quick 7 minute games just didn't go their way.

Y5/6 Mixed Futsal

Team: 2 Girls and 4 Boys

During a special afternoon game we were able to choose children who may lack in confidence and so don't usually play for their school team.  During each game their confidence grew and grew.  A special well done to Kyle who was an excellent team captain.

Y5/6 Girls Futsal

Team: 6 Girls

One of my favourite competitions so far as the girls continually displayed those all important Olympic Values. The girls never gave up against some very strong teams.  Madison-Paige won "man of the match" 3 times as she was excellent in defence, Jodie continually saved goals and our strikers (Faith and Holly) were very pink by the time they finished as they constantly strived to get goals. Well done to the whole team for trying your best.
