The theme of Learning Together Day was culture, so at Sandringham we decided to embrace some of the different cultures of countries around the world.
Aboriginal painting, traditional food from many parts of the world and a song from the Congo were all available on the day. We will attempt to upload the video so you can see years 5 and 6, from Sandringham and Flitcham, singing a Congolese folk song ‘Banaha’. It is a 3 part song, and the children handled singing their different harmonies fabulously.

On Tuesday 2nd April, 10 Year 1 & 2 pupils attended a Tri-Golf tournament of cluster schools at Lynnsport.
At the event, pupils from 10 different schools had to complete eight different tri-golf activities. They had a five minute time for each activity and scores were awarded for different targets.
Scores were totaled up for all of the activities and the team with the highest score went through to the next round.
The talented Sandringham & West Newton drew second place in the Year 1 & 2 category, which was a fabulous achievement!
Well done to all involved.
Also, a special thank-you to Mrs Marson and Mrs Collison for taking the children and supporting them throughout the morning.

Dear Parents , the children have had an amazing day, even the weather held off till about 2pm. This morning was climbing and obstacle courses and then pasta lunch, followed by camp building, Lazer tag and Nightline. Tea tonight was popular, burgers and hotdogs, followed by a trip to the shop. Everyone is now at the disco. Tomorrow they have zip wire and packed lunch, we aim to be leaving about 1pm and will confirm. We should be back in school around 2.15pm, you can pick up early and take siblings if you would like to.

Our thanks to Miss Leftley for coaching and accompanying. Well done everyone for playing hard to the very last minute.

The children and the parents throughly enjoyed our celebration for Mothering Sunday, by surrounding the church with a big hug, in the traditional service of Clypping. The sun shone and the children sang ‘We shall go out with joy’, what a wonderful way to start the day!

We were so proud to see Poppy Patnell and Tyler Kerry debating in the final at the Norwich School debate, last Thursday. The pair had been working in conjunction with the DNEAT family of schools in West Norfolk and had enjoyed 3 coaching sessions with staff and pupils form the Norwich School, The final debate was held in the Blakes Studio, in the grounds of Norwich Cathedral. Both pupils performed excellently in this prestigious environment, speaking clearly and giving sound points in their argument, proposing the motion that : Video Games Should Be Banned For Children. Parents and teachers attended and everyone was very impressed at how Poppy and Tyler overcame any nerves and spoke so passionately for their cause.

We are delighted that our girls team fought hard to get through to the finals of the school games at Norwich UEA. Well done everyone! Read the full report from our talented coach Miss Leftley, or as she is affectionately known Miss Lovely, below :-
Winter Games Finals 2019 @ Norwich Sportspark
It was a chilly Tuesday morning, 7am to be exact, when we all, well 10 yr5/6 girls arrived at school to travel to Norwich as West Norfolk Champions at Sportshall Athletics. It was a quiet journey with no snow, unlike last year.
There were 7 other partnership winners from around Norfolk: Sheringham, Wreningham, Firside, Blofield, Cringleford, Attleborough and Woodlands. Many of which are classed as large schools therefore considerably bigger with vastly different facilities to us.
However, the girls once again rose to the occasion and produced some brilliant performances, never giving up or in. It was all quite hectic as at times there were track and field events happening at the same time which meant they were often rolling from one event to another. Their attitude was exemplary and they took everything in their stride. A new event to us was the Over and Under race which proved to be a lot of fun. There were also a few bonus races, included just for fun culminating in a coach’s Javelin throw needless to say I hadn’t a hope against some very competitive men but the girls thought it was fun.
The eventual winners were Blofield, 2nd Firside, 3rd Woodlands, we finished a creditable 7th which made the girls happy, as they said they weren’t last and they were winners anyway. Mr Dixon made comment saying, how well they had done and that they punch above their weight! We really do.
Thank you to all the parents for getting them to school early and your support. It was a great day out and they all supported and encouraged each other throughout.
Nina, Gracie, Taylor, Maddy, Keira, Clara, Ella, Chloe, Sienna and Lilly.
