Years 3 and 4

The class has a two year curriculum map so that topics will not be repeated during the time the pupils are in this class. As many cross-curricular links are made as possible and often the timetable may change depending on the topics.

The National Strategies for Mathematics and Literacy are followed, and the pupils are regularly assessed against the standards. Targets are then discussed with individual pupils.

The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take pride in their work.
Homework is set weekly and is mainly linked to Maths or Literacy learning objectives for that week. We expect the pupils to read each evening and to learn spellings and multiplication tables. Often homework may involve research, and support from parents is valued. Pupils who need extra help with their work are supported in the classroom whenever possible.

Moving up day – July 2019

Great fun on moving top day – our new year 3 and 4 class, finding out what they have in common.

Quadkids Extravaganza

Posted on June 17th, 2019

Wednesday 5thJune at Lynnsport
Another day of sport, fantastic performances and more reasons to be proud of Sandringham’s children.
Quadkids consists of 10 children, 5 girls and 5 boys, competing in 4 events. They gain points for every second of their races and every centimetre of their throw and jump, similar to a pentathlon so it’s a slightly different concept for the children. However, they listened brilliantly and rose to the challenges of the day. In the morning it was the turn of the 3/4s, we were one of 10 schools competing for 2 qualifying places at Norwich.The event was made up of:
 A 400m run, 6om sprint, Howler javelin throw and a standing long jump. 
As all the events were made up of two heats we had no idea of how we were doing until the results were announced. The only thing I was certain of was that our boys and girls couldn’t have tried any harder even in the 400m which was quite any eye opener. They supported each other, running alongside in shifts encouraging them home even after doing it themselves. Nobody gave up, it was wonderful.
As the results were announced, the positions were getting closer to those top two and we had not been mentioned, 4thplace came and went, 2ndand 3rdwere separated by 11 points. Then our name was called, so close! Terrington and Shouldham had beaten us but it was an extraordinary achievement by 10 children who went out did their very best and most importantly enjoyed themselves.
It was the turn of the 5/6s in the afternoon, amongst the boys were 3 year 4s, 2 of which had competed in the morning. It was exactly the same format as the morning except there were only 9 schools in attendance. Several of these children had competed last year and knew the run and sprint, 600m and 75m this time, would be very difficult. Once again they rallied around each other, supporting, cheering and urging their teammates on, their commitment never in doubt. They performed brilliantly, giving it their all and finished a very creditable 5th.
We went to Lynnsport, against the large schools, had fun and competed!
I was told by the organiser. “ Your children performed out of their skins, they really couldn’t have given anymore. They are a credit to you all.”
A superb effort from and fantastic well done to:
Keira, Taylor, Ben, Nina, Gracie, Oliver, Lilly, Kaden, Elliot W, Tommy, Darcie, Daisy, George, Pleasance, Libby, Elizabeth, Henry and Elliott H.
A huge thank you as well to Miss Leftley, for all the fabulous coaching and organising, as well as taking the children to the event.

We all went on a Summer Holiday to the magical Poplins

Posted on June 17th, 2019

Last week saw the culmination of much hard work from our KS2 pupils, with 3 performances of our summer play ” We’re going on a summer holiday”, and what a magical production it was. The children worked so hard to learn their lines, all the words to the songs and the moves, make the props and sort out costumes. It was so entertaining, many people in the audience said it was the best play ever! I thought you would like to see some of the lovely comments we have received from our equally lovely supportive parents.

Dear all,
We just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone involved in putting the play together. We were genuinelly so impressed by the quality of the production, it was the best we have ever seen. It had us laughing out loud and crying (well me anyway) at the end and I think for primary school children to be able to create such emotion was real testament to the hard work of you all. 
Thank you again
The Mays!

Good Morning,
As we didn’t have time to sign the visitor’s book in the hall on Friday evening, I wish to email you to say how fabulous the Summer school play was again this year.  If you could please pass this on to everyone involved we would appreciate it.  
I watched it twice this year and could have watched it many times more and would still have found it entertaining, funny, emotional and thought provoking.  The children are all so talented and it amazes me every time I watch the plays at this fabulous school.  The standard of singing and acting, honestly is so professional.
My mum, Keira and I were emotional after the performances and we really will miss her being at this school!
Best regards
Lisa Malyon

Thank you to everyone involved in this amazing production.

Posted on June 14th, 2018

A wonderful day out was had by Reception and years 3 and 4  on Tuesday 12th June, with our trip to Hunstanton. Children enjoyed time at the rock pool and in the aquarium at the Sealife centre, followed by lunch on the beach and games. Year 3 and 4 also made beach sculptures and had a really interesting time at Mr Bun the Baker, finding out about life as a baker and even making their own doughnuts. Read all about it in the Hunstanton town guide, link below.
