Years 3 and 4

World book day

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 a 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.


Year 3 and 4 welcome back letter and planning overview for Spring term, with timetable.

Rugby Triumph!

Posted on November 16th, 2017

In 2016 with an adhoc team and short notice we were invited to enter the West Norfolk Rugby School Sport Partnership (SSP) tournament, in our PE kits, we came second to last. We were stirred by this and felt we could do better and so The Sandringham & West Newton School Rugby Team was duly created.

However, this year with our new professional kit there was a worry that we were ‘all kit and no idea’ that’s how smart we looked – thanks to Bespoke Norfolk LTD who sponsored our rugby kit. But, this year not only did we look the part – we WON! We won ALL the games and our team came away with the GOLD medals.

It was such a TEAM effort every one of our team scored a ‘try’.

Thank you so much to Stewart Parris (rugby coach) who freely volunteered his time to coach the team pre / mid and post-matches on Friday 10th November. And Mrs James who helped transport players to and from the West Norfolk Rugby Club.

I have to say the buzz in the playground upon the teams return, was just immeasurable!

Fridays Rugby Team included: Giovanni, Henry, Josh, Lilly, Niamh, Stanley, Thomas and Tyler.


 Additional details available on SSP website: and details will be in the Lynn News.

Thank you for  the support of all our wonderful parents.

Mrs Cullum (Niamh’s Mummy)

Fantastic Fossils by Tyler Kerry

Posted on July 11th, 2017

In science, we did fossils and we learnt about Marry Anning.

She dedicated her life to fossils. While she was finding fossils, her dog died in a landslide. She helped us find out more about fossils.

She also discovered lots of dinosaurs.

Kingswood Summary

Posted on June 11th, 2017

Apologies for such a late post about our amazing trip to Kingswood. I hope all parents enjoyed our presentation assembly of our memories.

I thought I would share one particular aspect with you, and it’s a Wordle created of all the children’s words to describe their experience of Kingswood.

It was a HUGE success and I am very much looking forward to going again soon!
