Little Hallingbury School pupils have been busy showing their sporting prowess in an action-packed term.

The Year 6 netball team are unbeaten this season and got the better of local rivals Howe Green House School in both a friendly and the final of a tournament arranged by the Uttlesford School Sports Partnership (USSP).

The school entered two teams in both the Years 3-4 and Years 5-6 USSP tag rugby tournaments.

The A sides qualified for the finals and enjoyed scoring tries at a muddy Carver Barracks while the Years 3-4 team did brilliantly to come third up against much larger schools.

On the football pitch, Little Hallingbury's gold and silver teams competed in the Kitteridge All Sports League. The gold team have qualified for the semi-finals, where they will take on Bishop's Stortford's Northgate Primary School, and the players in the silver squad have improved throughout the season.

The whole of Key Stage 1 and selected teams from Key Stage 2 got their trainers on to compete in cross country races against other schools.

The younger athletes all completed their daunting run around a big field, with special mentions going to Charlie, in reception, for winning his race and Year 2 pupil Archie for getting a bronze medal.

The older runners took part in USSP events and six out of eight teams, as well as three individuals, reached the finals. Thomas W (Year 3) won his race and Jessica (Year 6) came fourth as both qualified as individuals for the Essex finals next month.

KS2 pupils had great fun taking part in indoor sports hall athletics. Among the star performers were Freya and Kiera, who excelled at several Years 3-4 events, as well as Years 5-6 speed bounce winner Saiorse.

And the two KS1 classes have also been learning dances based on the topic of jungles as they prepare to perform their routines at the USSP dance festival.
