Netball News – Bee Fliers

Posted on April 4th, 2022

Bee Fliers Netball

at KES Tuesday 29th March

Twelve boys and girls from years 3 and 4 attended this festival along with 10 other teams. They were all divided into 3 pools and played each other rotating into another set of pools and once again playing each other, unfortunately there was not enough time to complete this round. Four children were on court, a third of a full size netball court, at a time, 2 defenders and 2 attackers who were rotated on and off court after each game, basic netball rules were adhered to and at times it was quite hectic. Both teams did very well and there was a distinct improvement as the morning progressed. Although some of them were a little nervous it was a good introduction into the game and it certainly helps playing against other schools.

There were lots of smiles and positive comments from the children on the day and their parents the next. It was great to see the younger ones playing and being competitive.

Thank you to Mrs Garrard too.

Well done Jaime, Neve, Elsa, Lacey, Pip, Amelia, Foster, Lenny, Dylan, Charlie, William, Isaac D.

Trigolf taster day

Posted on March 27th, 2022

Trigolf at Lynnsport

On Thursday Mrs Day and Miss Leftley took 10 children from Keystage 2 to the cluster Trigolf Festival.

It was a lovely sunny morning, ideal as the event was held outside on the hockey pitches.

There were 8 activities, to learn and play, which were run by the Springwood Sports Leaders. Several other schools attended and everyone seemed to be having a lot of fun.

A great morning!

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.”





Emily, Louisa, Sophia, Grace, Chloe, Zalia, Mila, William, Evelyn, Alva, Nyla, Georgina, Beatrice, Seb and Ellenie.


Thank you to Mrs Day, Mrs Collison, Miss Crawford and Miss Leftley for accompanying

Dogeball fun

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.”


Cross Country Finals !

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.

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

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.
