Go Go Hares

Our school leveret has arrived!  He was appeared in our ‘launch assembly , where he was unveiled by Marni, and Chloe, who along with many other children had found mystery clues around the school , which we discovered were all ‘Hare’ related!

The children will be planning their design this week, and on Friday March 2, our World Book Day celebrations will be ‘Hare’ themed across all our classes.

The children will be creating their own design, incorporating features of Lyng village. Every child will have the opportunity to paint an element of the chosen designs on our leveret.

He will be collected at the end of term , ready to go on display as one of the Go Go Hares exhibition  in and around Norwich .

Growth Mindset Parents Workshop

It was great to see a good number of parents/ carers at our recent parents’ workshop.

The children who shared this approach spoke confidently to their audience about what Growth Mindset means to them. It is obvious they are really developing a good understanding of being a learner with a positive ‘growth mindset!’

Those parents/ carers that attended found it helpful in knowing the approaches we use in school to encourage the children to develop positive attitudes to learning at home too.

If you weren’t able to attend but would like to know what was shared, the powerpoint notes from the workshop and the parent’s leaflet –  have been added below.

A couple of recommended books for children- My Fantastic Elastic Brain and ‘Everyone can learn to ride a bicycle.’

A  3 minute video clip ( American) can be found on   entitled ‘Three Ways to a Growth Mindset’.

Cross Country at Taverham

On November 2nd, a group of runners from Lyng Primary School went to Taverham Hall for a cross country run. There were about 80 children in each race and around 600 children there. We found it very exciting and we all tried our best. The course had hills and a wooded area. The race was harder than it looked. Tara Cummings came third, so she will be going to the county finals. Well Done Tara and everybody who took part.

Science Quiz

On October the 30th, Evie, Eva, Oliver and Jake, all attended the year six, Reepham high school science quiz. It was lots of random questions that you couldn’t possibly revise for. At the start, they weren’t doing very well and were by far, in last place. Luckily, they completely turned it around and came first in the last two rounds which gave them an overall score of 71 but were beaten to second with another school who got 78.There were five schools competing.
