Town Cluster Netball Competition

This event had finally resumed, to the delight of the children, after a break of a couple of years and was held at Lynnsport in the Barn on Thursday 23rd March. To say they were excited was an understatement!

The teams were drawn in 2 pools of 4, with winners of one pool playing the 2nd placed team in the other pool in the semi-final, winners going on to the final.

Our pool consisted of St Germans, Whitefriars and St Marthas 2 which we played in that order games were played 8 minutes one way, rotating positions after each game with everyone having to miss a game.

The draw meant we had a little longer to wait as we were second on which only added to the excitement. They soon got into their stride and played some super shots winning 6-0, it was a 2 game wait before back to back wins of 1-0 and 5-0, leaving us to play Flitcham in the semi-final.  The other semi-final was ST Marthas 1 against St Marthas 2 with St Marthas 1 winning.

The final was superb with both teams playing their best, it really was end to end, our only nets were conceded here and St Marthas won 2-1. It was very close and could have gone either way; they never gave up, fought to the end and were sporting in defeat. Mrs Bowers who organised the event, commented on it being an extremely exciting final.

They were also congratulated by the umpires during and after their games on their play and skills which meant a lot.

The smiles said it all, it was a huge team effort and the support they gave each other was fantastic. For me to be able to pick a team was a difficult decision as the netball club is so well supported with such a lot of depth, the children have been so committed to practicing during their break which really paid off.

New Age Kurling

Lynnsport 24/03/23

This event is part of the Omnes Games and is geared to introducing sports that we wouldn’t necessarily do in school.

Two teams of 6, attended with 4 playing at a time, rotating after each game.  Although they played against other schools, Sandringham were one of 8, it was a fun activity rather than a competition.

It is based on ice curling, with the little stone on wheels, which is then pushed towards a target and it can also be knocked out by the opponent’s stone too.

The children all said they had enjoyed themselves and it was nice to have a go at something a little different.

Football fun

National League Tournament  February 2023


Twenty schools took part in this event at Lynnsport on Thursday which turned out to be a mild sunny day. It was a 6 a-side event with rolling subs over a 10 minute period. They were divided into 4 pools and played everyone in their group, giving them a placing to move on into the next round of games. Sandringham were up against Fairstead, Holly Meadows, Denver and Greshams, we played them in that order. We started tentatively, conceding a goal in the final seconds which disheartened them a little. We won, scoring 3 against Holly Meadows but conceded 2 against Denver. It was certainly a morning of ups and downs but their best performance came against Greshams who were unbeaten, we fought and won 1-0. It was a great game with other schools cheering them on.

We finished 3rd in our pool, behind Greshams and Denver, we were set to play off for 9th-12th positions. Our time off consisted of lunch and some penalty taking with Fairstead which proved to be a lot of fun, then it was back to the games. Our first match was against St Martha’s, fortunately there were some green bibs to be had as we were both the same colours. It was a good match with both teams having chances but we managed to score and won 1-0. Now we played Nelson Academy who had just beaten South Wootton on penalties after extra time. Another exciting match with end to end football, it went to extra time and in the final minute we scored which secured 9th position.

The final was between North Wootton our coach share school and Greshams, it was so exciting with North Wootton being supported by almost all the children, Greshams scored and went on to win. Our children clapped North Wootton onto the bus for such a great performance they in turn said well done to us for being the only team to win against the winners.

We had some very happy boys and girls.

Neither, Mrs Day or myself couldn’t possibly pick out a best player as they all worked very hard as a team to finish where they did, against some very tough competition but Lenny in goal made some super saves!

You are all superstars!

Skipping for Charity

Posted on February 2nd, 2023

I, Mrs Reddey, has decided to do the ‘100 skips in February’ to raise some money for Cancer Research UK: A charity close to my heart.

I thought what better way to try and get fit and raise a little money. I also thought who can really motivate me to get this done and there really was only one answer: MY CLASS.

So, far, they have joined in with me for 2 days so far. They time themselves 1 minute to see how many skips they can do, and they will try and beat it everytime they do it again.

I have managed to complete 50 in a minute so roughly taking me 2 minutes so far, but I am getting quicker.

Only 26 days more to do.

Tag Rugby Fesitval

Posted on December 4th, 2022


During the Autumn Term we had been learning Tag Rugby in our PE lessons so it was great that we could send two teams to the Festival at the West Norfolk Rugby Club on Monday 28th November, 18 teams took part in the afternoon session. It was cold but dry for an afternoon of fun and activity. Rather than be an A and B team, Mrs Bowers gave us names, we were Sandringham Tigers, with Miss Leftley and Sandringham Harlequins with Mrs Day. We played in pools and then the pools were rearranged for a few more matches. Unfortunately not all of these took place as we ran out of time much to the disgust of the children; they were all having a super time. As with other festivals junior coaches officiate and run the games, it is also a non-scoring event but as we know in a game such as rugby, games are there to be won and it didn’t stop the children saying how many they had won when they got back. After a tentative first match against Hilgay the “Harlequins” went on to win all their other matches, whereas the “Tigers” roared out winning all theirs. Both teams showed great Team spirit, discipline, respect for everyone on the pitch and sportsmanship throughout and it was very hard to choose a player from each team who had shown this the most but we did and Charlie Day and Lenny Hipkin received a medal.

It was a super afternoon!

As this is part of the Omnes Games, it is a non-competitive event where schools take part in a sport they wouldn’t necessarily play in school. The matches are run by the young coaches from local high schools and the college.

Sandringham was one of seven schools taking part; others were Ashwicken, Nelson Academy, South Wootton, Whitefriars, Holy Cross and West Lynn. They played each other in a round robin format.

Initially a few wondered what Volleyball was but soon got involved and gave it a go! Their responses on returning were very positive, saying they had had a good time, it was fun, they had learnt something new and had enjoyed it a lot which was good to hear.

Cross Country Finals

Cluster Cross Country Finals

Lynnsport 24.11.22

It was a cold, sunny morning and with thankfully not the wind of the previous event.


There were around 50 in each race which understandably made everyone feel rather nervous but once the races started things calmed. After all, it was a step up with all the top 10 qualifiers from each cluster in attendance, so all the children were winners.


All 5 of our qualifiers competed and completed the courses, giving it their all, with the two Harriet’s finishing in the top 20 and the boys mid division. Thank you to the parents for your support.

The thing that sticks out for me personally was their care and support for each other, it was lovely to watch.


Great Effort!

A wonderful day at the races !

Cross Country 10.11.22

On a bright November morning 18 children took part in the Town Cross Country at Lynnsport, over varying distances, 600m, 1km and 1.6km, according to their age group.  As always it was very well supported with large groups in each race. The course and format were similar to last year, they followed a bike that showed them the way and finished through 2 big flags where parents and schools lined the way.

The top ten from every race goes on to the next round against the top ten from the other clusters later this month, at Lynnsport over the same course.

The children though nervous enjoyed the event but commented on how different a race against other schools is compared to racing in school. They were all amazing and gave it their all as well supporting and encouraging others.

The first race (600m)for the younger ones is more for fun, they don’t go forward into the next round but our children did very well with Rex 4th, Cooper 7th with Ollie, Harrison and Zac finishing just outside the first ten which is promising for next year.

The years 3 and 4 raced over a distance of 1km, our 4 competitors, Isaac, Isaac, Harriet and Bridget racing well with Harriet and Isaac R finishing 9th and 6th respectively.

The 5 and 6 races were over the mile distance of 1.6km which definitely needed some determination, which Dylan, Lenny, Foster, Harry, Charlie, Sam, George, Finlay and Harriet had to complete.  Our qualifiers from this group were Dylan 2nd, Harriet 4th and Foster 10th.

A Great Effort Everyone!
