In November, we enjoyed a taster day of karate delivered by ESKA.
In Year 1 and Year 2, the children have been receiving some specialist gymnastics coaching. This is being funded by the School Sports Premium. So far, the children have loved learning to perform on the beam, and to roll and handstand on the floor.

Football at Langley Prep School, March 2017
Mr Dean took Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 football teams to play at Langley Prep school. Year 3/4 played well but were defeated 6-0. However, Year 5/6 won 8-0. The match report on the Langley website says we were “very strong, experienced and ruthless. Poringland moved the ball quickly, played to their strengths and worked excellently as a team.”
In February 2017, 2 of our pupils qualified for the Norfolk School Games Cross Country Finals which was held at Gresham’s School in Holt. A huge congratulations to Amelia who WON her age group. She beat 76 girls. An honourable mention to Albie who came 22nd out of 72.
