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!

A wonderful day at the races !

Posted on November 13th, 2022


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!

 

Dogeball fun

DODGEBALL

Friday afternoon saw the beginning of The Omnes Games, a six game taster of different sports throughout the year. Eight children from Yrs 1/2 and eight from KS2 took part in some friendly games against other schools. The idea being they learn a new game and have some fun too, in a non- competitive environment, I have to say it doesn’t always work out that way which is a pity. The College provided the coaching staff as part of their own practical training which gives everyone experience.

 

 

 

The feedback from the children and staff was very positive and they all said they had lots of fun and felt they improved as the sessions went on, the pictures certainly say that too.

Well Done Everyone!

Speed stacking

Posted on February 20th, 2022


Speed Stacking

On Friday afternoon 8 children from each Key Stage visited Lynn Sport to try Speed Stacking. There were 6 other schools in Key Stage 1 and 7 in Key Stage 2 and they played against each other in a round robin, running to the table, stacking and unstacking the cups then hi-fiving the next person to go, again no times were taken. It was a new experience for many and as the afternoon wore on, the more times they played, the quicker they got.

The Leaders that ran the tables were very good and the

children had lots of fun!

“I enjoyed trying to get quicker.”

“I liked trying to beat someone and Hi-fiving each other.”

 

“It was lots of fun.”

“I enjoyed it as there was running involved too.”

“I liked it as it was all very fast.”

 

“I thought it was really fun going against other schools.”

Omnes Games 2021/22 KS1&2          DODGEBALL

A group of 8 children from each Key Stage went to Lynn Sport to take part in the first of 6 events in the Omnes Games. These games are festivals rather than competitions, allowing children to experience new games that we wouldn’t normally do in school. We were one of six schools taking part in each key stage, learning whilst playing the game against each other without the pressure of actually winning or losing. All the children said they had lots of fun and really enjoyed the experience, their comments were great.

“My favourite part was moving about and jumping out of the way.”

“I caught the ball and everyone was able to get back in twice.”

“I liked throwing the ball.”

“Dodgeball was amazing. I loved the teamwork, everybody participates.”

“I really liked it, I thought it was going to be scary but I loved it!”

“I’m really proud of myself and us who went.”

WELL DONE EVERYONE!

Cross Country Finals !

Posted on November 25th, 2021


Cross Country Finals

On Tuesday 23rd November at Lynnsport, 40 schools were represented by approximately 450 children, covering years 3,4,5,&6, boys and girls, with at least 50 children  in each race, it was going to be a real experience.

It was an ideal morning to be running and our three children rose to the task and competed superbly, finishing a very creditable 6th, 13th and  21st, against the top ten children from the other sports clusters of West Norfolk.

A Brilliant Effort from Dylan, Isaac R and Neve.

Multiskills sports festival

Posted on November 21st, 2021


Multiskills Festival

KES 18.11.21

Multiskills is a year 3/4 festival and as its name suggests includes different equipment and skills to play small games. It is part of the ENGAGE area of sport which focuses on children who enjoy sport but don’t necessarily play it outside of school.

Eleven children took part, joining up with 7 other schools, there were 8 different activities which were run by the cluster team leaders.

It was an enjoyable event and all the children gave it their best and had lots of fun, their smiles and laughter proved that, so much so they taught 2 of the games to the rest of the class in their PE session that afternoon.

A great effort from;

 Louisa, George, Emily, Fynley, Grace, Chloe, Sophia, Lexi, Zalia, Charlie and Mila.
