WW2 trip year 3 and 4

Posted on June 10th, 2022


Year 3 and 4 have been on a trip to support their studies of World War 2. They had a fabulous time and just look at the feedback about our amazing children!

Subject: school visit to the NNR

Dear Mrs Gardener,

 

I am writing on behalf of Libby Henshaw, David Parmenter and myself Chris Parmenter.  We are all volunteers at the NNR and for years were part of the education team which sadly is no more. Libby is a retired teacher herself.,

 

We had the pleasure of entertaining your lovely years 3 and 4 when they came for a day out and to see our beautiful Railway Cottage, Museum and Model Railway.

 

We want to tell you that they were a real joy to interact with, and we were able to have a lot of fun whilst they learned more about the WW2 project they are doing in school.  Their families and yourselves must be incredibly proud of them.  They are a credit to you all.

 

The teachers also were so interactive and helpful. Clearly there is much mutual respect between teachers and pupils and it really shows in their behaviour and knowledge and willingness to learn.

 

We hope they took away some useful memories and that they had a lovely day.  We would love to see any photos that were taken by your staff.  We certainly  enjoyed it as much as they seemed to.

 

Kind regards and best wishes

 

Chris Parmenter  NNR re- enactment volunteer.

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.”

Dogeball fun

Posted on November 28th, 2021


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!

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.
