As the sun was out, we were able to play with our new equipment on the field. Our new equipment was purchased, with the money raised from events organised by the School Council. As you can see, we had fun exploring what was new inside the boxes.
Graham Muncer was a pupil of Colman Junior School and lived locally, many years ago. One summer, Graham, his brother and some friends went fishing in the river at Cringleford. They paddled in the water and used fishing nets to catch little fish. Very sadly, Graham slipped into the deep water under the bridge and drowned. Graham’s parents do not wish this to happen to anyone else and really want every child to learn how to swim. They gave the school a cup, to be presented to someone who has shown a positive attitude to all aspects of swimming.
I always choose a Year 6 pupil who has shown a positive attitude to all types of swimming, including strokes, water polo, sculling and, most importantly, water safety and personal survival.
This year, the Graham Muncer Cup has been presented to George

As the snow has thawed, we were able to play with our new equipment on the playground. As you can see, we had fun exploring what was new inside the boxes.
5LW have had a really fun and engaging day today making Brazilian carnival costumes and props. They each made their own tabard and rainforest animal mask to wear, and then they made animal structures to carry made out of willow, cling film and tissue paper. Everyone worked really hard to get these finished and it was fantastic to see everyone supporting and helping each other. We look forward to showing off our work, along with our samba dances that we have created in PE, in a carnival procession after half term.
For the past term, year 5 have been learning songs themed around the 6 Indian seasons, some of which are in other languages such as Tamil and Hindi. On Wednesday, 33 of our year 5’s had a full afternoon rehearsing these songs and learning dances at the OPEN venue in Norwich before the evening performance in which they performed as part of a 300 strong choir alongside the band Keyo. This was a fantastic experience for these year 5’s, and the event was enjoyed by all.
What a way to finish the #casma2018 South Asian Fusion performances!! Huge thanks to everyone involved and the 27 schools who worked so hard and performed so brilliantly this week! #ACEsupported @Comeandsingco @khiyoband @namaste_norwich pic.twitter.com/Wd2PK7XcPT

Year 3 Egyptian Day by Henry 3KH
On Tuesday, we went to Norwich Castle because we are learning about Egypt.
First, we went with Dr Derry and looked at some very, very interesting Egyptian things like shiny, blue scarab beetles.
Secondly, we smelt some oil called frankincense, saw an obsidian knife and looked at mummies with Professor Parry.
After a yummy lunch, we saw what people in Egypt had for breakfast and tried on some Egyptian clothes.
Last but not least, we made some reflecting, pretty Egyptian necklaces with all different colours like red, green, gold and silver.
Year 3 Egyptian Day by Noam 3KH
In the morning, we went to Norwich Castle to learn a bit more about ancient Egypt.
First, we went with Dr Derry to look at some incredibly ancient Egyptian artefacts. She told us a story about some Egyptian gods because it related to all the models and shabtis. We saw a replica of the Rosetta Stone and a canopic jar.
Next, we went with Professor Parry. She showed us a fake mummy although we couldn’t touch it. She showed us a sharp, tough obsidian knife which the ancient Egyptians used to make a cut in the mummy and take out body parts.
After that, we met Amunet who told us all about life in ancient Egypt. They ate things like sweet, juicy pomegranate, crunchy, brown cinnamon and dry, black figs.
Finally, we went with Ahmut Muhn to make some shiny, golden (not real gold) necklaces. In one of the pictures there was one with a scarab beetle to give good luck to the wearer although it was blue and not real.
