Sandringham Flower Show

Posted on August 30th, 2019

A wonderful end of term was swiftly followed by the children exhibiting their work at the Sandringham Flower Show, which was attended by HRH Prince Charles and the HRH Duchess of Cornwall. Everyone that attended was very interested in the work the children had done on conservation and especially the action that had taken too, for example the School Council’s visit to Hunstanton by bus, to do a litter pick on the beach.

Sporty end to the year

Posted on July 17th, 2019

Everyone enjoyed a lovely family picnic followed by Sports Day on Friday July 12th. Well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you to all the staff for organising and running the day. Huge thanks too to Mrs Windsor, one of our governors who was a great starter and presented all the certificates at the end of the events.

And a final word for this season from our fabulous coach …..

What a way to end the year!

I don’t know how many times I’ve said this but the way the children support and motivate each other is wonderful, they listen, they learn, they want to do well but for that to happen they have to have fun and enjoy it and that’s what they have done this year. It has been a fantastic year for sport at Sandringham and their achievements, for a small school immense; I have enjoyed teaching and accompanying them all to these events and being part of their journey. It has been so much fun.

Thank you to children and parents for your support.

Well Done Jasmina, Ben, Clara and Henry

Final Competition

Lynnsport was the venue; Thursday 4thJune was the date, for Sandringham’s last sports competition of the year. 


Only one team of four children could be entered so having had a little practise and lots of fun as this was something we hadn’t tried, a team was chosen, Jasmina, Henry, Ben and Clara. 

Once there, we were able to have a practice and get used to the court size and get used to having a net and its height. They were nervous but excited!

There were 8 teams in total which were divided into 2 pools, each pool playing a round robin system and everyone played in each game, they were numbered 1-4. They played first to 15 points on a half court which was a bit different; points were awarded per games you won. The first game was against West Lynn who were very strong, as were our second opponents, Runcton Holme but we watched, supported, learnt and adapted our game, our scores and confidence  improving. Holly Meadows were our final pool game and then winning 3 of our 4 matches, little smiles crept in. All the teams came back together and the top 2 in each pool went into the Cup competition, the remainder played in the Plate competition. We went into the Plate against Wormegay, Holly Meadows and South Wootton our enjoyment and confidence rising we won 9 out of the 12 games.

It was then the results; West Lynn won the Cup competition and the Plate winners were Sandringham much to their surprise!

Netball Finals Triumph

Posted on June 25th, 2019



Thursday 20thJune

Everyone was up bright and breezy for our trip to Norwich to compete in the county Finals. The children were excited and really looking forward to it as were the parents who accompanied them. Unlike other years only one team from each cluster qualified therefore there were only 8 teams which meant the competition was a Round Robin of matches and the team with the most points won. Unfortunately Langham failed to arrive so there were only 7; Fairhaven, Garboldisham, Wreningham, Bawdeswell, Rollesby, Methwold and Sandringham.

The first match, against Garboldisham who have previously won the tournament 2 years running, so have a good track record, as we do too, was nerve wracking. At the end of the first half we were 4-1 down but fought back to secure a draw, 5-5. As dinnertime arrived it was obvious there were 3 teams who stood out, Garboldisham, Wreningham and us but how would it end? Unfortunately the matches became a little more physical and umpiring inconsistent which took the edge off what was a wonderful day but the team played on. Finally, the results, the top 3 teams were separated by only 2 points, we had finished a fantastic 3rdwith 15 points (Wreningham won with 17 and Garboldisham second with 16).

It was a long day and we had some very tired children on the bus, who had played some wonderful netball, scored some great goals, battled hard and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, it is such an achievement.

Thank you to all the parents for joining us on this trip, to Thomas for helping and 



Countryside Classrooms – an amazing day in Sandringham Park

Posted on June 24th, 2019

All KS 2 children from both schools, enjoyed a fabulous day learning all about life in the countryside, at a day organised by the Countryside Classrooms commission. Even though it rained literally all day, the children stayed for ther whole day, learning about gamekeeping, sheep rearing, forestry, falconry, working dogs and farm machinery, including the use of drone and astellite technology for ploughing. Ity was really fascinating.

Thank you for Lady Howard and Mr Richardson for all the organising and to the Estate for the use of their park. We hope it will be an annual event.

Make Music Day

Posted on June 22nd, 2019

Yesterday was a fabulous day, not just weather wise, but with the beautiful sounds of music that emanated from the school playground. We kicked off the afternoon with the rather marvelous King’s Lynn Ukulele Club. They played some Queen numbers and embraced summer with a bit of George Ezra and it wasn’t long before all the children were up dancing. The choir were brilliant and sang their socks off. Next, we had Springwood’s brass band. They had been to seven schools before us but, despite being worn out, they played absolutely brilliantly. The sound of a brass band being played outdoors is the epitome of a British summer. Then, all of the school musicians performed for us. We had piano players, clarinet players, recorder players and violin players. Finally, to finish off the day, the choir, along with some of our fabulous parents (Mrs Whitmore, Mrs Collison, Mrs Askew, Mrs Ward and Mrs Wright) sang ‘Let it Be.’ It was a truly lovely afternoon, and the best way to wish Mrs Reddey well as she starts her maternity leave. Thank you to all parents that came to watch the event and for donating cakes (a special thanks to Libby J, who had baked for us and even made a special cake for Mrs Reddey) and to the ‘Friends’ committee for their help organising the refreshment stall and providing the tea, coffee and many cakes.

There are lots of pictures in the gallery.
