Mini Tennis !

Posted on July 10th, 2022


On a hot sunny Friday morning 2 boys and 2 girls from years 5 and 6 took part in a Mini Tennis Development Festival, at Lynnsport.  As in previous weeks no scores were taken officially, however the first to get to 7 points won the game.  Six teams took part and every team played each other twice, this meant that each person played 8 games, 40 games. As with the previous tennis festivals we wanted to end the morning on a 20/20 win/lose ratio and the children were extremely happy to achieve this, in fact it was 22/18 with some very near misses at 6-7. It was certainly a good experience.


Well played Pixie, Harriet, Sam, Harry.

Sports round up

Sports Round Up 2021/22

What a difference a year makes!

Our School Partnership Team has provided us with a huge amount of opportunities this year, to make sport fun for everyone and not just competitive, to engage our children in a variety of sports, from the more unusual, Ultimate Frisbee and Curling to the more traditional, Cricket, Netball and Tag Rugby. We have been lucky enough to attend the festivals and competitions, only a handful, that accompanies these sports with increasing enjoyment and success. Competition success came in the form of; Mini Tennis team qualifying for the Norfolk Games at Norwich, Cross Country runners going on to the next round and the Netball team joint 1st at Smithdon.

It is super to see the children develop, learn new skills and see and hear so many of them say I really enjoyed that.

This has culminated in Sandringham being awarded the Gold Sports mark Badge.

Well Done Everyone!

Have a great summer!


PS, note from Headteacher, Mrs Gardener – we are delighted to be awarded the Gold Sports Mark, and would like to say a huge thank you to Miss Leftley, without whom none of this would have happened. Miss Lefltley coordinates all of our sport in school and through her hard work , the children receive these wonderful opportunities to compete and try new sports.

3 cheers for Miss Leftley!

This morning 2 boys and 2 girls from years 3 and 4 took part in a Mini Tennis Development Festival, at Lynnsport. There were 11 schools taking part which meant we were divided into pools with each player having 6 games. The games were umpired by High School Team Leaders and although scores were not officially recorded it was the first player to 7 who won to end the game. They were all very supportive in both the rules and coaching the game.  Despite the rain shower mid-morning, spirits were not dampened and they managed to win more games that they lost with some very close calls.

The aim of the festival was to learn something new and have fun which going by their smiles, they did.

Well done!

Norwich Sports Park Mini Tennis Competition

Monday 27th June

The Final was a huge event with 32 Primary schools from across Norfolk taking part but the children did themselves proud and narrowly missed out, settled on countback results, on qualifying for the last 16 competition. They played well, improving with each game and enjoyed the experience immensely which will stand them in good stead moving forward.

Thank you Mums and Dads for your support and a Super Well Done to;

Elsa, Pip, Dylan and Foster

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.

*Acrostic poems about jubilee

*Information booklets about key events that happened every year in the 2010’s.

*Listened to music that came out in this era.

*Learnt the song ‘Sing’ by Gary Barlow to perform at our street party Friday.

*Created a Chuck Close styled art piece of Her Majesty the Queen’s portrait.
