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.

 

Welcome back, please find below our welcome back newsletter, timetable and curriculum planning for year 3 and 4 autumn term 2019.

Class Timetable Autumn 2019 year 3 and 4

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.

Sports hall achievement at Lynnsport

Posted on December 8th, 2019


 

 

Sportshall Athletics is run similar to the Decathlon in that every second/centimetre from each activity, represent a number of points which are then added together to create a final score. Events include: speed bounce, vertical jump, long jump, five strides, javelin, chest throw, 1/1 lap, 2/2 lap, 4/1 lap and 4/1 obstacle relays. During the whole day 20 small and large primary schools took part, with only one boys and girls team qualifying for the Winter Games in Norwich, as it happens it was North Wootton Boys and Holly Meadows girls that won with the most points from the two sessions.

Eighteen of our girls and boys took part participating in up to 4 events each, 2 track and 2 field. As a small school many of our year 3 were included which was a little daunting but everyone tried their best, listening to instructions and supporting each other. They performed brilliantly and never gave up and were rewarded with a creditable 5th {girls} and 7th {boys} for the morning session. Following the afternoon session, the final placings were 11th place for the girls and 15th for the boys. To put these placings in perspective both our teams were in the top 3 had it of been a small schools event which is a magnificent performance. They all said they had enjoyed themselves and competing. Thank you to Mrs Massen and Mrs Day for supervising the field events.

Running in the rain !

Cross Country November 2019

@ West Norfolk Rugby Club

On Tuesday 20 boys and girls, from years 2-6, took part in this event alongside children from 17 other schools. On arriving it was dry though cold but once the intructions for the morning were out of the way the rain began and the wind got up. It proved to be rather unpleasant and conditions underfoot slippery but the children carried on racing, producing some good results, all finishing in the top 25 for their respective group. The races for year 2 were more for fun but places were given out and they all finished in the top 20 which was a brilliant result. For the other year groups, only the top 10 placed children go on, to the next round in January. Elliot finished 10th and goes forward but there were several children who finished very close in 11th, 12th and 13th places.

Despite the awful weather they said they had enjoyed taking part but were glad to get back in the warm after, I was too! Thank you to Mrs Day for coming along.

Well done!

Hockey Highjinks

Quicksticks Hockey Tournament

Today, Friday 11th October, 2 teams travelled to Lynnsport and took part in their first ever hockey competition. It was a very different experience, playing on Astroturf rather than our school field, the ball moved a lot quicker but the children soon adapted. There 2 pools of 5 in the competition, Sandringham Saints were against, Glebe, Terrington St Clements, Marshland St James and Snettisham. Whereas, Sandringham Steelers had St Michaels, Dersingham, South Wootton and Gayton to contend with. All the matches were played over 12 minutes substituting players after 4 and 8 minutes which meant it was moving all the while. Games were won, lost and drawn but the improvement after each match was immense, they rose to the challenge and really enjoyed the experience. The Steelers managed to win their pool and following 2 playoff games finished 3rd, the Saints following their playoff finished 9th. All the games were close and played with enthusiasm and enjoyment, a pleasure to watch. The children supported each other throughout and were sporting whatever the result.

Mrs Marson and Mrs Collison both said they had enjoyed the day and the experience it had provided. All the children said they had had a great day. I certainly enjoyed watching them.
