A year of sporting success at Lea Forest

posted 20 Jun 2014, 19:02 by J Croxon [ updated 20 Jun 2014, 19:03 ]

Last year our newly formed Lea Forest football team finished 7th in the league. 12 months on and we had a fantastic battle with nearby Timberly Academy

for second place which was incredibly tight, but Timberley managed to pip Lea Forest - by a single point - to that finals berth spot. We are still incredibly proud of the team's achievements and thrilled to see Lea Forest reach 3rd in the league.

The full league table is here.

On Tuesday 1 July and Wednesday 2 July Lea Forest will be working with volunteers from Calor Gas Birmingham Depot, alongside Mr Jules, our Building Services Manager to plant over 400 beautiful trees on our site and help us to rebuild the forest .

The trees we will enhance the academy grounds, provide pupils with peaceful and calm reading areas, and widen the opportunity to have a creative outdoor curriculum.

Year 4 are currently exploring instruments for their topic work ‘playlist’.

Miss Warwick is keen to know if children from any year group can play a musical instrument and whether they are happy to show off their talent. If so please do get in touch with her.

Miss Warwick looks forward to hearing from any young musicians!
