Yr 3/4 Tennis Festival @ Lynnsport

Thursday June 6th

It was a pleasant Thursday morning and our team of 2 girls and 2 boys took part in this festival against Terrington Storm and Blaze, North Wootton Aces and Spins, Anthony Curton, Ashwicken and ourselves. The short games, up to 7 points but not recorded, on mini courts and followed by a couple of relay races.

The children were ranked 1-4 and played the corresponding player of the opposing team. It was strange having a net and court lines to negotiate but they soon got into a routine and enjoyed themselves, improving with each game. They were pleased with their performances and their points gained and all of them won some of their games. All of them deserved a medal for listening, applying what they had learnt, along with a good attitude but Arlo was chosen. Well done Arlo, Ellenie, Harrison and Florence.

There were some lovely comments.

“I really had fun.”

“I was nervous at the start but I enjoyed myself.”

“I got better each game.”

“I would like to do more tennis.”

Trigolf Festival @ Lynnsport

Thursday 25th April

Twenty children, 10 boys and 10 girls from years, 1/2 and 3/4 attended this event. It was a morning of mixed, rotating activities learning and improving our golfing skills.

It proved to be a lot of fun with our children enjoying the various activities as these comments prove:

“ I didn’t think I could do it, so I was worried but it was lots of fun!”

“ I really liked all the different activities.”

“ It was good.”

“ I think it was really fun as we got to try lots of different things like trying to get the ball in the paddling pool.”

“ I scored lots of points.”

“ I enjoyed playing the one where you had to hit different cones to score points. I really liked it.”

A great festival giving young people a taste of something different.

Yr 5/6 Hockey Finals @ Lynnsport

Monday 25th March 2024

We were one of 8 teams who attended the Finals, Terrington, Gayton, South Wootton, Dersingham, Sheringham, Glebe and Bure Valley and we played them in that order. The matches were 12 minutes long rotating pairs every 4 minutes, most proved to be very evenly matched with only a goal or two in them.

We ended the morning with losses against Terrington 0-1, Glebe 1-3, the event winners, and Sheringham 0-2 the runner’s up, a draw against Dersingham 2-2, 3rd place, and wins against Gayton, 1-0, 4th place, South Wootton, 5-0, and Bure Valley, 2-0. Our final placing was 5th which was a great achievement, given all our hockey lessons this year have been on the playground.

The children as always fought hard and were sporting and didn’t give up even when things didn’t quite go their way which is something I have always admired throughout my years of accompanying them to these events.

Well Played; Foster, Lenny, Isaac, Pip, Ellenie and Maisie.

Omnes curling

Omnes Kurling @ Lynnsport

22/02/24

The Omnes events give children a taste of something different. The stones are little platforms on wheels, very similar to the stones in how they are pushed along and let go.  It is hoped they will go far enough to reach a target and score points, like the actual game you can try and knock your opponent’s stone out of the way. However no brushing is necessary! Both groups of children soon got used to it and had great fun getting them to the target. There were several schools from the western area so the children had the chance to rotate and play different people.

An enjoyable afternoon with some very positive thoughts on it.

Super!

Netball competition

Town Cluster Netball Competition

@ The Barn Lynnsport 21/03/24

Over the years this event has proved to be extremely competitive and prior to 2020 the winners and runner ups went on to a County event at Norwich, the SSP are hoping to bring this format back for next year. This year did not disappoint, 9 teams took part and they were divided into 2 pools for the first round matches. The tricky part about Primary School Netball is that you have to follow a set rotation pattern all the team play all the positions, changing at the end of each match so it’s quite a lot to get used to.

In Pool 1 were Sandringham Pulse, Ashwicken, Greyfriars and St Martha’s Thunder, playing them in that order, narrowly losing the first 2 matches 1-2, 0-1 but then winning their final pool game 1-0. They finished 3rd and went on to play Gayton the 3rd place team in pool 2, drawing and finishing joint 5th overall. They worked well together, supporting and encouraging each other through the position rotations, with every match they improved, listening to advice. The comments afterwards were very positive and they certainly seemed to have enjoyed themselves.

Pool 2 had Sandringham Storm, Flitcham, Gayton, St Martha’s Lightning and Fairstead, we played in that order winning 3-0, 6-0, 1-0, 4-0. The team made good use of the court, finding space, passing accurately, defending well and there were some great goals scored, and with Pip scoring the decisive one against St Martha’s to enable us to top our pool. We then had to play St Martha’s Thunder in the semi-final; with Neve scoring all 3 goals we won 3-0. In the final we were against St Martha’s Lightning who had beaten Ashwicken 3-0 in their semi. It was all very exciting, with our Pulse team cheering us on we scored first, it really was end to end passes and then it went 1-1 but the girls and boys kept their nerve and control , found space, defended well and went on to win 3-1. It was heart-warming to see their faces, the pleasure it gave them, how proud they were to have come out on top.  Their support for each other is immense with the Pulse team running on and celebrating too. I was so proud of them all.

They were all amazing and a credit to you and our school!

Well Done Sandringham!!!!

Girls’ football

Football Tournament @ Lynnsport

Thursday 29th February

This was a relatively new event which proved very popular with 11 teams taking part. The schools were divided into 2 pools, we were pitted against Snettisham, Clenchwarton, Hillcrest, Dersingham and St Martha’s. The other pool had South Wootton, Fairstead, Terrington, Gayton and Upwell.

It was quite a dreary day but not as bad as it was originally forecast and all the girls had a good time, it was not as intimidating as playing with the boys, they said which certainly gave them confidence. Within our pool we drew 1 game, lost 2 but won 2, this left us in 3rd place which meant we played the 3rd placed team in the other pool, Gayton. It was a close game but we lost 2-1, meaning we finished 6th overall. The girls were so positive throughout the event and really gelled together, this will give them a good understanding and stand them in good stead for future events.

To see them all getting involved, working as a team and gaining confidence with each game was great!

A Super Well Done Everyone!

SSP Quicksticks Cup Competition @ Lynnsport

Monday 4th March

Once again this was a new event for years 5/6 which then leads to a County Finals Tournament at Dereham. There were 18 teams taking part from all over the west of the county which were then divided into 4 pools. Each team comprised of 3 boys and 3 girls, hence the need to include some younger girls as we had entered 2 teams.

Everyone was very excited and the sun shone despite it being a little chilly when it disappeared behind a cloud. Mrs Day took Sandringham Steelers to their pool with Gayton, Dersingham and Howard Junior. They played well and really improved as the event went on culminating in them winning their play off game against Fairstead from group 1.

Sandringham Sharks headed to group 1 alongside Terrington, Fairstead, Flitcham and Hillcrest which we played in that order. It was a tentative start but we managed to win all our games conceding only 1 goal against Fairstead. They all worked very hard coping well with the 4-minute rotations throughout the games and supporting the younger players on their team. They then had to play Gayton for a semi-final place, unfortunately Gayton scored early on and maintained their 1 goal advantage to the end, we were not without a chance or two but it just didn’t happen. Despite their obvious disappointment they were as always sporting, leaving Gayton to take on St Marthas for 3rd/4th position, Dersingham and Glebe fought out the final with Dersingham winning on a golden goal. The Sharks finished a very creditable joint 7th with the Steelers in 15th.

Everyone was extremely positive and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

A fantastic day!

Great Effort;

Foster, Lenny, Dylan, George, William, Isaac R, Pip, Maisie, Elennie, Harriet, Bridget, Georgina.

 

Netball News

Netball Festival @ Lynnsport Years 3 and 4
On Thursday 12 children took part in the Netball festival, an opportunity for them to play a
simplified game against other schools in a fun environment although they were still more
concerned with the result of each game. There were 6 children in a team and 4 on court at any
one time, there were no rules on where you were allowed and everyone could shoot and
defend.
There were 4 courts and 4 pools, where we played everyone and then they were all rearranged
and played a further 2 games in their new pools. It was all very exciting and it took a few
minutes to get to grips with being able to be anywhere on court but they soon adapted and as
the morning progressed they became more confident and fluid in their play.
Mrs Sizeland’s group, Zacki, Arlo, Georgina, Bridget, Harriet and Alice, played both St Martha’s
teams, Dersingham and Anthony Curton, drawing 0-0 in each game, their last was against St
German’s, where they finished with a win and scoring twice.
The other group, Nyla, Maisie, Ollie, August, Florence and Elennie, played Dersingham and
Glebe winning 2-1, St Martha’s losing 1-0, Holly Meadows winning 2-0 and then finished off the
morning with a 2-0 win over the other Glebe team.
It was a well-organized event with 16 teams taking part which was enjoyed by all the children,
with Georgina and Florence getting team player of the morning. They all really got to grips with
playing against other children and did a great job.

 


WELL DONE!

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.
