Sporting Events

 Welcome to WJS sporting page here you will see all the events children take part in throughout the year. 

Year 5/6 football match

On Monday 13th of November WJS girls football team played St Michaels in a league match. The girls from St Michaels were a solid team to play against but the Writtle girls were up for the challenge. The girls worked hard throughout the game improving on positioning and passing. Just before the half time whistle went Ella dribbled the ball in from the half way line and finished with a cracking goal hitting it straight in the back of the net! The team played a strong attacking game in the second half and scored 3 more times, Fran finally got the goal she deserved, followed by another goal by Ella then Fran scored the last! St Michaels tried to come back at WJS but their super strong defence lead by Rosie just wasn't letting them get through. Some great saves by Jessica! Fantastic result 4-0 win ! Well done to the team! Thanks to Mr Lambert for refereeing the game and to all the parents and supporters for coming over and cheering the girls on. 


Year 4/6 Hi-5 Game

It was great to see our Hi-5 team play Westlands on Friday 10th November. Westlands played really well and although the game ended in defeat for WJS the team did us proud.  There were some great moves during the game and we look forward to seeing them play in further matches during the year.  Well done to all the team and thanks for all the support

Year 6 Tag Rugby Competition 

 On 6th November we took a team of Year 6 Pupils to a Tag Rugby Competition at Writtle College.  The sun was shining, but it was a cold, autumnal afternoon.  The team were put in a tough pool and played 6 ten minute games.  After adjusting to the level of competition, the team worked hard, passing the ball well and finding space across the field.  The scores were very close with a mixture of wins, draws and losses.  We managed to get through to the second round of games and won them 3-1 and 2-1.  A couple of excellent performances!  It was an awesome afternoon and we can feel very proud of our team.  Well done all!

Well done to Fran, Rosie, Abbie, Reanna, Owen, Toby, Henry, James, Euan, Brynley, Harry and Freddy

Thank you to Mrs Champney for organising and being a great supporter throughout the competition, and to all the parents, carers for their help with lifts, we couldn't go without your help!  

Year 5/6 Badminton Competition

On 17th October Writtle Juniors took a team of four children to take part in a Badminton Competition at Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre. They spent the morning playing several matches consisting of both single and doubles games. They did fantastically and won all their games-finishing top of their pool 11--5, 11--4, 11-5, 11-6, 11-2, 11-4, 11-8,11-4 11-4, 11-2, 11-3, 11-5, 11-7. They then went and played against the winners of the other pool. They lost 3 very close games 10-11,6-11 and 7-11 and won one 11-6. The games were excellent and to such an impressive standard! The team ended coming 2nd with just 1 point in it to win..!
