West Norfolk Cross Country Finals
On Tuesday 22nd January 27 runners from our school took part in the West Norfolk Cross Country finals, which they had qualified for through cluster competitions. For once the weather was kind and, although it was a little chilly, the conditions were perfect for running, crisp and sunny. Races at this level are more challenging for runners as there is a lot of tough competition from other schools. We had some fantastic performances on the day with the runners doing their best to perform to the best of their ability. Children who finished in the top 10 then qualified for the School Games Finals to be held at Holkham in March. We had 6 qualifiers which were: Enza Taylor – year 4 – First, Alisha Greenwood – year 4 – seventh, Charley Wheatley – year 5 second, Abigail Bransgrove – year 5 seventh, Betty Schwarz – year 6 – seventh and Sophie Garrett – year 6 ninth.
Huge congratulations to all the runners for your fabulous efforts. Well done!
Year 1 & 2 and Year 3 & 4 Gymnastics Competition - February 2018
Two teams of gymnasts competed in the West Norfolk finals for gymnastics, a team from year 1 &2 and a team from year 3 & 4. Each team consisted of 6 children. They had to learn a floor routine to perform from memory and they also had to learn how to mount and dismount a vault.
Both of the teams performed excellently and great fun was had by all. It was a very busy final event as there were 9 schools involved in each of the key stage competitions.
The year 1 and 2 team finished a very respectable 6th on the day and wowed the judge with their very assured vault work.
Our year 3 and 4 team managed to finish in first place, winning gold medals and the title of West Norfolk gymnastics champions. They were absolutely delighted!
I would also like to say a big thank you to the sports leaders from St Clements High School who have given up their time to coach at the gymnastics club. We were also lucky enough to have them at the competition with us where they could continue to support the gymnasts.
Well done teams!!
Year 3 and 4 Girls Football Tournament - 7th February 2018
On a very cold, but fortunately dry, day a team of eight year 3 and 4 girls competed in the West Norfolk football tournament. This involved them playing seven other teams during the afternoon. The girls coped brilliantly in the cold and showed they were able to work as a team during all of their games. They all gave their best performances and were willing to try out different positions. By the end of the tournament the girls had won all seven of their games. They managed to score a massive 18 goals and only conceded one. This is a fantastic achievement. As champions of West Norfolk the girls will now represent West Norfolk at the School Games Finals on March 1st. The next stage is a county level competition.
Well done girls!!
West Norfolk Cross Country Finals 29th January 2018
On Monday 29th January twenty-eight runners from our school took part in the West Norfolk schools cross country finals. These runners had all qualified following top ten performances in the cluster rounds. In true cross country style the weather was cold, grey, very windy and at times raining. These conditions did not faze our runners who all competed with one hundred percent effort. Everyone tried their best and represented the school with pride.
We have five children who have qualified, by finishing in the top ten at this round, for the Norfolk School Games finals (County level competition) on Wednesday 28th February 2018. The children who have qualified and their positions from this round are as follows

Betty Schwarz (year 5 – 7th place)
Sophie Garrett (year 5 – 10th place).
Jack Codrington (year 5 – 4th place).
Well done to all the athletes who competed on the day!
West Norfolk Swimming Finals 17th January 2018
On Wednesday 17th January, swimmers who had qualified for the West Norfolk Swimming finals went to St James’s Swimming Pool to compete against other strong swimmers from other schools in West Norfolk. The 8 children were very excited and quite nervous. However, all the swimmers swam so well and their support and encouragement for each other was fantastic. There were some very competitive and close races.
Olivia Skittrell jointly won 1 of her events, which was an amazing result! At the end of the individual events, everyone participated in some fun relays in their year groups, joining up with 2 other schools in our cluster! Again, their enthusiasm was brilliant throughout these events. Well done to all the swimmers and a special thank you to all the parents and grandparents that came to support, it was much appreciated.
Sportshall Athletics Final December 5th 2017
Following on from the great success at the cluster sportshall competition both our girls and boys year 5 and 6 teams competed in the West Norfolk finals. This took place at Lynnsport and involved 5 other schools. Once again the children competed in both track and field events in the sportshall. They all tried their best and really enjoyed the event.
Both of the teams placed 4th in their competitions which is a brilliant achievement.
Well done to both teams!!
Sportshall Athletics Competition - Wednesday 15th December 2017
On Wednesday 15th December two teams of year 5 and 6 pupils competed in the cluster sportshall competition. Each team consisted of 10 girls and 10 boys.
In sportshall athletics children complete a series of track and field events indoors. They require agility and throwing and jumping skills to compete. All of our children performed brilliantly and tried their very best which resulted in us winning both the boys and the girls competitions. The behaviour on the day was, as always, excellent.
As cluster winners these two teams have now qualified for the West Norfolk Finals on Tuesday December 5th. The children were over the moon to have won and qualified for the next round. Congratulations to them all.
Girls team: Molly Gale, Sophie Garrett, Olivia Skittrell, Hannah Howes, Millie Eveson, Sophie Bearman, Sapphire Ingham, Grace Gee, Betty Schwarz and Jennifer Wood.
Boys Team: Seb Bennell, Jack Bunting, Dylan Whitehouse, Dylan Rust, Jack Codrington, Jack Carter, Gethyn Hunter, Seth Rye, Riley Butters and Harry Lincoln.
Cross Country Competition - Thursday 2nd November 2017
On Thursday 2nd November the annual cluster cross country competition was held at St Clements High School. 33 runners from year groups 3-6 took part in the event which also involved Clenchwarton, Walpole Cross Keys and West Lynn schools.
The events were managed by a brilliant team of sports leaders from the High School, under the watchful eye of our school sports partner, Tracy Bower.
All of the children ran at their best, cheered each other on and were proud to represent the school. Out of the 33 runners who competed for us, 32 qualified for the West Norfolk Finals in January. This is a brilliant achievement. On the day we also managed to win 18 out of 24 available medals. The children were a pleasure to take and represented the school amazingly.
We are now looking forward to the next round when hopefully the weather will be as kind to us as this time!
Quicksticks Hockey Tournament – Friday 29th September 2017
We were very lucky this year to be able to take three teams to the Quicksticks hockey tournament held at Pelicans Hockey Club. These teams were made up of children from years 5 and 6 with some of them having had experience of playing matches before and others being new to the sport.
On the day the weather was typically British and we got very wet in the morning. Each team was placed into a pool with 5 or 6 other schools and subsequently played either 5 or 6 matches. All of the players carried on regardless of the downpours and got stuck into their matches. Out of the three teams the Tigers and Renegades finished second in their morning pools and the Terriers finished fifth.
The afternoon saw a new round of games where the teams were put into pools depending on their finishing places in the morning, which meant the Tigers and the Renegades were in the same pool and had to play each other. Something they coped very well with. The Tigers managed to win that one. The Terriers went on to win their afternoon pool which they were very pleased about.
All children played superbly and put in a tremendous amount of effort into all of their matches. They behaved exceptionally well and, as always, were a pleasure to take to the competition.
The three teams were made up of the following players.
Tigers – George Garnham, Jack Codrington, Alec Boud, Reggie Rudland, George Lake and Hannah Howes.
Renegades – Jemima Hicks, Dylan Whitehouse, Seb Bennell, Sophie Garrett, Pacey Hunter, Finley Brammer.
Terriers – Jennifer Wood, Lewis Jackson, Peter McGregor, Betty Schwarz, Robbie Schrier and Jack Bunting.
Cluster Athletics Wednesday 12th July 2017
Finally the weather was kind to us and the cluster athletics competition was able to go ahead at St Clements High. Thirty four athletes attended from our school and they competed against the three other cluster schools. The standard of the competition was very high.
We had a very successful day out with wins in their events for the following children;
Alec Boud – 60mH, 80m, shot and relay, Charley Wheatley - 50mH, Sapphire Ingham – 60mH, Shannon Wheatley – 60mH and standing long jump, Jack Codrington – 400m and relay, Jordan Fernandes – 600m and relay, Abigail Bransgrove – 400m, Trinity Tokaji – 600m and vortex, Charlotte Lake – 100m, Gethyn Hunter – vortex, Sophie Garrett – vortex, Ryan Stoneham – standing long jump, Kyle Kirkpatrick – standing long jump, Zoe Burton - standing long jump, Grace Gee - standing long jump and relay, Olivia Skitrell - standing long jump, Betty Schwarz – relay, Seb Bennell – relay, Jennifer Wood – relay, Millie Eveson – relay, Hannah Howes – relay.

Tri Golf Festival
During Key Stage 1 P.E. lessons, we have all been having a go at Tri Golf, using both the putter and chipper clubs. It has been great to try a new sport and after 3 weeks of practise, we were beginning to putt the ball confidently and some of us were beginning to chip the ball into the air for the longer distances!
In May a group of boys and girls from KS1 and lower KS2 went to Clenchwarton to take part in a Tri Golf Festival, with 4 other schools! The children used their putting and their chipping skills fantastically well over a range of 8 different golf activities. It was a very hot afternoon so lots of water was required in between our shots!! Some activities required the ball to be chipped/putted to touch a cone and some were into different hoops, with lots of different distances.
Well done to all the children that came, it was a brilliant afternoon! We look forward to next year. Miss Ingham
West Norfolk Netball finals
At the beginning of June we went to play in the West Norfolk Netball finals where we played other schools who had also won their cluster to get to the competition. There were some very close netball games and it was very competitive! Again, just like the netball games in the first round, there was some very good sportsmanship shown throughout.
We fought hard and preserved through all the games and although we didn’t end up in the play offs for the Norfolk finals, we played our best netball and came 6th in the whole of West Norfolk!
A big thank you to all the Sports Leaders and everyone that organised the West Norfolk Netball finals. Well done to all the players! Click here to see the rest of the photographs.
Terrington’s Hockey Teams Shine in Norfolk Tournament
On Thursday 18th May, the school entered two teams into a Norfolk Quicksticks Hockey Tournament, held at The UEA SportsPark.
Both teams did extremely well in the scorching heat, showing great skill, teamwork and competitiveness. Both teams won their first group games against Dickleborough and Ashleigh Primary school, 9-0 and 3-0 respectively. Tigers went on to win their group against Cringleford (8-0) and Hethersett (4-1), but unfortunatley the Bears missed out on qualifying after losing to Hillside.
The Tigers then faced Hillside – who were victorious over our Bears’ team – in the semi-final. Showing more outstanding skills (Oscar Thompson in particular) and great teamwork, the Tigers bull-dozed their way into the final with a 4-1 victory with Charlotte Lake scoring two great goals.
In the final the Tigers faced local neighbours, St. Martha’s. Tiger’s dominated the first-half and found themselves 1-0 up, but ruing several missed opportunities. St. Martha’s somehow bundled the ball into the goal early into the second-half, creating a nail-biting finale. However, the Tigers some-what panicked at losing their early lead and lost 2 more goals in quick succession, meaning St. Martha’s won the Championship with a 3-1 win.
A huge ‘WELL-DONE’ to all children involved. With everyone showing great skill, determination and teamwork, they should all be very proud of themselves for the commitment they have shown in hockey this year. Furthermore, for a team to come second in Norfolk, it is a fantastic achievement – something I don’t think Terrington has ever better in any sport. While I shall not be here next year to see further progress, I hope each and every player continues to play hockey for years to come.
On Friday 24th February we took a group of children to Lynsport to take part in the adaptive sports event. This special sports day for local schools gives children with physical disabilities the chance to take part in a variety of sporting activities. Led by specialist coaches from Top Coaching, King’s Lynn Community Football and the College of West Anglia, the sessions are a fun introduction to the sports and activities provided by Alive Lynnsports regular clubs for children with disabilities. There were four activities on offer, target football, parachute games, throwing at a target and table tennis. The children had a fantastic time and joined in enthusiastically.
West Norfolk Cross Country Finals
On Friday 27th January our 25 cross country qualifiers competed at the next round of the cross country competitions; West Norfolk Finals.
In true cross country style the weather was very cold and the ground frozen but it was dry, which was a bonus. The children ran in year group races with each race having approximately 50 competing. The top ten runners from each race then qualified for the county finals which will be held on Friday 10th February at Greshams.
All of the children tried their absolute best on the day and gave it their all, despite the cold, so they must be congratulated on their achievements. It was a pleasure to take them and watch them compete.
The results for our runners were as follows:
Year 3 girls – Abigail Bransgrove 6th
Year 3 boys – James McDermid 16th and Jenson Burton 34th
Year 4 girls – Grace Gee 5th, Betty Schwarz 7th, Jennifer Wood 8th and Sophie Garrett 11th

West Norfolk Gymnastics Competition
On Wednesday 25th January a team of 6 gymnasts competed at the Key Steps competition at Lynnsport. This is the first time we have entered the competition so it was an exciting venture for both children and adults alike.
Our gym team consisted of Evie Upton, Angelica Taylor, Shauna Britton, Anthony Taylor, Millie Tester and Misty O’Connell.
In the run up to the competition our gymnasts had practised their routines during gym club. They all had to complete a floor routine, consisting of many difficult and different elements, and a vault. The judges were looking for both technical detail and presentation when they marked each gymnast.
The competition was of a high level and our children competed to the best of their ability, which was amazing to watch, and finished the competition in 6th place. They all said they thoroughly enjoyed the morning.
Videos of the routines will be able to be viewed soon.
On a slightly chilly, but most importantly dry, Thursday afternoon 32 athletes were taken to St Clements High School to compete in the cluster competition. They ranged from year 3 to year 6. Years 3 and 4 ran an 800m course whilst the year 5 and 6 children ran a 1200m course. All of the children put maximum effort into their running which meant we came away with some amazing results.
Individual first places went to: Abigail Bransgrove (Year 3), James McDermid (Year 3), Grace Gee (year 4), Jack Codrington (Year 4), Hannah Howes (Year 5), Alec Boud (Year 5) and Trinity Tokaji (Year 6).
We have 29 runners who have qualified for the next round, the West Norfolk Finals, in January. As a team we also were victorious in the following events: Year 3 and 4 girls, year 3 and 4 boys and year 5 and 6 girls, and came away with 3 out of 4 team trophies. Nice work everyone and keep training ready for January!!
Cluster Swimming Gala
15 Swimmers attended the cluster gala, held at St James pool. All children tried their very best in their races. Some of the races were extremely close and great fun was had by all. Out of our group of swimmers 6 of them qualified for the West Norfolk Finals. Well done to all the swimmers.
At the West Norfolk Finals our 6 swimmers represented the St. Clements cluster. They performed brilliantly in their races. They should be very proud of reaching this level of competition.
Cluster Athletics Competition
On Thursday 7th July 2016 35 children from our school took part in an althletics competition against 3 other schools; Walpole Cross Keys, Clenchwarton and West Lynn.
Over the course of the competition there were 48 events, both track and field, for children in years 3. They competed in sprint races, an endurance race, relay, hurdles, javelin, shot put and standing long jump.
We had amazing success winning 24 of the 48 events. All children gave each event their absolute best and cheered each other on. They represented the school with pride and the school are proud of their achievements.
Cross Country Finals
On 1st February, four runners who had qualified for the cross country finals through two previous rounds, competed in the Norfolk finals in Holt. Fortunately the weather was kind and it stayed dry, if a little blowy.
Liam Clare competed in the Year 6 boy's race and came 43rd out of 80 runners.
Jennifer Wood and Sophie Garret competed in the year 3 girl's race and came 36th and 50th respectively, again out of 80 runners.
Jack Codrington ran in the year 3 boy's race and came 51st out of 80 runners.
It was a massive achievement for all four to get through to the county finals and represent the school at the highest level. They all run their best and tried their hardest on the day. They should be congratulated for achieving as well as they did.
To keep them warm on the day they wore the new school hoodies which Terrington Community Fund kindly helped to fund for us. A big thanks goes to them for their generosity.
After winning the cluster High 5s netball tournament, our Y5/6 netball team got through to the West Norfolk final at KES. On Monday 21st March 8 players travelled to King’s Lynn to compete against the nine best teams from all over West Norfolk. We were placed in a group with Gaywood and Heacham primary schools. In our first game we drew against Gaywood (2-2) and in our second game we beat Heacham (3-0). Unfortunately for us, Gaywood beat Heacham 4-1 meaning they got a place in the winners group as they scored one more goal than us.
As a result, we went into the runners up group and were competing to come either fourth, fifth or sixth place overall. We played St Martha’s first and beat them 10-0. Dersingham were next and we beat them 8-0. Each player was fantastic and we demonstrated how far we have come in netball over the years. We came fourth in West Norfolk which is a brilliant result as we have never even reached these finals in the past.
Well done to the most successful netball team we have ever had. Year 6s must continue to play netball next year at their high schools and the two year 5s in the squad will be expected to lead by example in next year’s season!
During Key Stage 1 PE lessons, we have all been having a go at Tri Golf, using both the putter and chipper clubs. It has been great to try a new sport and after 3 weeks of practise, we were beginning to putt the ball confidently and some of us were beginning to chip the ball into the air for the longer distances!
On Friday 6th May a group of boys and girls from KS1 went to KES to take part in a Tri Golf Festival, with 16 other schools. The children used their putting and their chipping skills fantastically well over a range of 8 different golf activities. It was a very hot afternoon so lots of water was required in between our shots. Some activities required the ball to be chipped/putted to touch a cone and some were into different hoops, with lots of different distances.
Well done to all the children that came, it was a brilliant afternoon! We look forward to next year. Miss Ingham.
Cluster Cross Country Competition.
On a rather damp and windy day Mrs Hornigold and I took twenty children, from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 to St Clements High School for the annual cross country competition. The conditions were not ideal for the children but fortunately as the time arrived to race the rain cleared up.
Everyone was in fantastic spirits, cheering their school friends on to try to encourage them to do the best they could. They certainly did that! All twenty eight children tried their absolute best whilst competing, from which many successes came our way.
In the year 3 and 4 races we won both the girls and the boys races with Millie Eveson winning for the girls and Jack Codrington winning for the boys. In the year 5 and 6 races our highest finish for the girls was third for Tallulah Moxey (well we had to let another school win something!) and for the boys race we won again with Liam Clare taking the honours. We had a great many medal winners too who finished within the top 10 for their race.
The top six finishers in each race made up a team for the school. Their finishing positions were noted and points awarded to decide the team trophies. I am delighted to say that we managed to win the team trophies for year 3 and 4 girls, year 3 and 4 boys, year 5 and 6 girls and year 5 and 6 boys…a clean sweep. Go team Terrington!!!
Following on from the success of this competition we have fifteen runners who have made the West Norfolk Cross Country Finals at Lynnsport on the 9th of November.
I would like to say we were proud to take the children to the competition and of their achievements. Everyone behaved impeccably and tried their best and crucially supported each other.
Well done runners, and here’s to the next round!
On Wednesday 18thMarch Year 3/4 football squad travelled to Clenchwarton to play in a football tournament. They played against Clenchwarton and Walpole Highway.
All the players worked so hard with great team work, especially as it was first time they had played together.
On Friday 13th March Year 5/6 football squad travelled to Clenchwarton to play a football friendly. The game was fast and furious with the ball going from one end of the pitch to the other.
All the players worked so hard with goals being scored by Ayden and Shane but it wasn’t enough to win. Next time eh?
On Friday 20th June our mini tennis team travelled to KES to compete in the King's Lynn and West Norfolk mini tennis competition. Both teams played four games against the cluster winners from all around the King's Lynn area. Our boys, Liam and Joshua, played some fantastic tennis and all games were extremely close. Our girls, Jessie and Trinity, also played brilliantly and won 3 out of 4 games.
Overall, our team came 6th out of 12, earning 64 points out of a possible 80. It was a great afternoon and all of the children really enjoyed playing at the tennis centre. There were encouraged to keep score of their own games and call when a shot was out. We are certainly all very proud of the four children and look forward to next years's competition!
On Thursday 12th June our tennis team headed to the high school for a tournament. We competed against teams from other schools in our cluster. Both girls and boys gained confidence with each game and played some really good tennis. We came second overall, only a few points behind the leaders. As a result, we will be heading to KES to compete in the King's Lynn and West Norfolk tournament.
On Wednesday 21st May the Year 3 / 4 netball team went to the High school to take part in a netball festival. We took over two teams of four and the children played against teams from West Lynn and Clenchwarton. For many of the children, it was the first time they had ever represented the school. All of the players did the school proud and grew in confidence after every game. The standard of netball was fantastic and everyone played together well. We look forward to the next school year when netball club will begin again and we can continue to work on our skills. Well done to everyone involved!
