Quick Sticks Hockey

Posted on October 9th, 2021


Quicksticks Hockey Festival and Tournament

On what turned out to be a lovely sunny day, 11 children from years 3/4 took part in a hockey day at Lynnsport.

In the morning session a team of 5 entered the festival where they played pool matches against Holy Cross, Dersingham and Walpole Cross Keys, learning skills and working as a team, no scores were taken. At the same time, the team of 6 played in a cup competition against Fairstead, Clenchwarton, Downham Prep Dynamos and Devils and Gayton, where they won 3, drew 1 and lost 1.

The afternoon session consisted of all schools playing in new pools, once these were completed they all came together for the results of the cup competition and the raffle, a new idea which proved very popular with the children. The cup was won by Downham Prep with Sandringham finishing in second place, which was a super result and pleasant surprise for everyone, given the standard of play from the other teams. Little trophies were awarded to one person from each team who had excelled, improved, gained confidence or stood out as a team player, Neve and Lacey were awarded these. The raffle proved to be another surprise as Elsa’s name was pulled out first and she won a new hockey stick.

It was a tentative start but as the day wore on it was clear that all the children were enjoying the experience, learning new skills, giving their best with their ever growing confidence and producing great performances.

Well Done Everyone!

Neve, Jaime, Lenny, Dylan, Foster, Elsa, Isaac D, Amelia, Isaac R, Pip and Lacey

Posted on October 4th, 2021


We are fortunate enough to have one of very talented governors  Jayne Windsor running a Gardening club.

 

Here is their latest news:-

 

The Gardening Club continues to be enthusiastically attended. The children are wonderful. They are so interested and keen to get stuck in to whatever we are doing.

So far we have made an amazing bug hotel and a sunken pond to attract wildlife to the garden. We have sown sweet peas for flowers next year and planted some daffodil bulbs.  We have also done lots of weeding.

 

Welcome back Years 3 and 4!!
