Years 1 and 2

Years 1 and 2

Welcome to Year 1 and 2.

Teacher: Mrs Gibson

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Mountain, Mrs Sizeland  and Mrs Day

 

In Year 1 and 2 we follow a creative topic based curriculum to inspire learning. We follow the National Curriculum for English and Maths. Reading continues to be a big focus. We have a daily phonics lesson where children learn new sounds and practise their blending and segmenting skills.  We use the Little Wandle system for teaching phonics. The books the children read closely match their phonics knowledge. Children are expected to read for 10 minutes at home each night.

 

Homework is set each week and this usually consists of reading, spellings and maths. In class the children enjoy our weekly Tackling Tables test.

 

Each year the children take the lead roles in the school Nativity play which is part of the Christmas service at the church.

 

An outing is planned each term to support learning. In recent years we have visited Castle Rising, Sandringham Museum, Kings Lynn Museum, Gressenhall and Holkham at Christmas.

 

Dear All

It has been lovely getting to know all the children. They seem happy and settled already!

Speed stacking !

Posted on February 18th, 2024


SPEED STACKING @ Lynnsport  16/02/24

As part of the Omnes series of events, 8 children each from KS1 and KS2 attended along with 7 other schools.  It is a fun activity where children have a go at a sport which may not be taught in school. Speed Stacking has become a sport and there are competitions for it but this event was just for fun.

The children all had a great time, getting the hang of it and as their technique improved as did their speed in building and taking down their stacks. Their positive comments and smiles proved they’d enjoyed the afternoon.

CROSS COUNTRY FINALS

Posted on November 12th, 2023


Cross Country Finals @ Lynnsport

09.11.23

Our 3 top 10 finalists took part in the West Norfolk Cross Country Finals on Thursday; this meant each of their races had between 40 and 50 participants. It was a sunny morning with a chilly head wind; thankfully the course was familiar, having completed it in the qualifying round. Once again it was top ten who would qualify for the County Finals which this year is going to be held at High Lodge in Thetford.

A few nerves appeared but once the racing started they were busy cheering each other on. Cooper was the first to race, yr3, and ran a very creditable 29th, next up was Neve, yr6, who exceeded her expectations finishing strongly in 16th and finally in the last race of the morning was Dylan who once again finished well to take 15th position.

Although we had no qualifiers for the next round, the children ran their very best races and really could not have done more; they put themselves in the right places, listening to advice but very big gaps developed, stringing out the fields, which proved difficult to bridge.

We were all very proud of them.

Super Effort Neve, Dylan and Cooper.

 

Dodgeball afternoon

Posted on November 1st, 2023


DODGEBALL

On Friday afternoon a group of children from KS1 and KS2 attended the first in the series of Omnes activities at Lynnsport.

Mrs Sizeland and Mrs Collison accompanied them. It was a non-competitive event, no scores were taken, it was just about learning and having fun, for some it was their first sporting activity outside of school which made them a little apprehensive but they soon got into their stride. They played against 7 other schools throughout the afternoon, improving with each game.

On returning to school, the vibes were definitely positive from both staff and pupils. These events are such a great way of learning something new but also gaining confidence within an environment away from school.

Cross Country at Lynnsport

Thursday 12th October

Fortunately it was a dry, relative warm morning, ideal for running. We took 20 children from years 2 – 6 to compete over distances ranging from 600m to 1.6km. The year 2s were first off, boys and girls all raced together due to a lack of competitors but top 3 were awarded medals in each group. It was highly competitive between our children who despite never having run in such a large race proved they could finish well, many of them just outside the top 3. Brogan ran superbly to gin 3rd place and a bronze medal.

The years 3 and 4 ran over a distance of 1km, in fields of 30-40 pupils, having run brilliantly were just outside the top 10, those within qualify for the next round. However Cooper finished in 10th gaining him a place in the next round.

Years 5 and 6 had the task of going last and running the furthest, it was a tough task in large fields but they gave it their all with Neve in 7th and Dylan G in 4th.

As always the children tried their best and supported each other with many of them saying they had improved on last year’s positions which they were pleased about as I was too.

It was a great morning and well done to everyone. Super Effort!

 

Good Luck to Neve, Dylan and Cooper in the next round.

Welcome back!

Tri golf report

Town Cluster Trigolf Festival

This event was held at Lynnsport, on the all-weather hockey pitches, on Thursday 27th April. There were 8 different schools taking part each with a KS1 and a KS2 team of 10 children. The 8 activities were all skill based, played for 8 minutes on a rotation basis.

Fortunately the weather held and it proved to be lots of fun with one comment being.

“I’m really enjoying this, I didn’t think it would be this much fun.”

A child from each group was awarded a medal for improvement, attitude, determination; I think they all deserved one but well done Chloe and Ayla

New Age Kurling

Lynnsport 24/03/23

This event is part of the Omnes Games and is geared to introducing sports that we wouldn’t necessarily do in school.

Two teams of 6, attended with 4 playing at a time, rotating after each game.  Although they played against other schools, Sandringham were one of 8, it was a fun activity rather than a competition.

It is based on ice curling, with the little stone on wheels, which is then pushed towards a target and it can also be knocked out by the opponent’s stone too.

The children all said they had enjoyed themselves and it was nice to have a go at something a little different.

A wonderful day at the races !

Cross Country 10.11.22

On a bright November morning 18 children took part in the Town Cross Country at Lynnsport, over varying distances, 600m, 1km and 1.6km, according to their age group.  As always it was very well supported with large groups in each race. The course and format were similar to last year, they followed a bike that showed them the way and finished through 2 big flags where parents and schools lined the way.

The top ten from every race goes on to the next round against the top ten from the other clusters later this month, at Lynnsport over the same course.

The children though nervous enjoyed the event but commented on how different a race against other schools is compared to racing in school. They were all amazing and gave it their all as well supporting and encouraging others.

The first race (600m)for the younger ones is more for fun, they don’t go forward into the next round but our children did very well with Rex 4th, Cooper 7th with Ollie, Harrison and Zac finishing just outside the first ten which is promising for next year.

The years 3 and 4 raced over a distance of 1km, our 4 competitors, Isaac, Isaac, Harriet and Bridget racing well with Harriet and Isaac R finishing 9th and 6th respectively.

The 5 and 6 races were over the mile distance of 1.6km which definitely needed some determination, which Dylan, Lenny, Foster, Harry, Charlie, Sam, George, Finlay and Harriet had to complete.  Our qualifiers from this group were Dylan 2nd, Harriet 4th and Foster 10th.

A Great Effort Everyone!
