This term we have seen lots of pupils taking part in the Colman mile on Wednesday lunchtimes. It is so good to see so many children getting involved. If you haven’t had a go yet why not come and see how you get on next term! Well done to everyone who has run this term!
The year 6 House captains organised teams of six players who could attend training and then the competition after school on Friday 25th November.
The competition was very close, with lots of tactical manoeuvres, inspiring team play and lots of goals scored and even more goals saved. The goal keepers made some very brave saves, keeping the scores very close.
Skills learned during training were put to good use, and several players really shone during the competition.
Unfortunately Wells had two players who were unable to make the competition at short notice, due to ill health, but the remaining four players worked hard, kept a positive sporting attitude and finished in second place. Absolutely brilliant!
The final scores were:
First with 8 points, Caister
Second: with 7 points Wells
Third: with 6 points Hunstanton
Fourth: with 3 points Cromer
Thank you to Mrs.Roe, who kept score and did an amazing job of time-keeping.
On Saturday 19th November, the year 4 Korfball squad competed in their first Autumn Korfball Tournament. For the first time the year 4 Tournament was mono-korf, which is a smaller, simplified version of korfball, using four players instead of eight. This allowed us to take four teams of four players, although with some players unavailable on the day, most of the squad played for more than one team!
The squad had a great morning, scoring loads of goals, learning more about the game of mono-korf and competing against several other schools. Out of thirteen teams, Colman finished in third place, which I am very happy with.
I feel very proud that all of the Korfball squad were happy to play, scored loads of goals, supported each other and learned from watching others.
Thank you very much to Mrs Henery and Mr Donovan for giving their time and also to all the parents and siblings who cheered and supported.
Two year 6 teams competed in the Autumn Tournament, both teams worked hard and each team cheered and supported the other, showing great sporting attitude. There were a total of seven teams and Colman finished in third place, which is a fantastic result and two players have been chosen to represent Norfolk!
Great goals were scored by Oliver, Poppy, Eric, Billy, Gracie and Benjamin, well done.
I am very happy with both Year 6 teams and look forward to working with them again when Korfball club restarts in April.
The Year 5 Korfball team worked hard all morning, learning and developing skills, working as a team and above all showing great sporting attitude. Luke and Uri both scored very impressive goals.
I am very happy with the Year 5 team and look forward to April when Korfball club restarts.
After the success of their previous game the Year 5 boys were in confident mood ahead of their next game at home to St Williams. The game proved to be highly competitive with excellent play from both teams. Chances were few and far between however when called upon Luke denied any shots from the opposition. The defence and midfield showed great determination with many blocks and last ditch challenges. The game looked destined to end in a 0-0 draw however the boys had other ideas. Reuben, who had been crucial in defence, was released into midfield for the final 10 minutes and it was his last minute pass that fed in Harry. With only seconds left on the clock, Harry showed great composure to slot the ball into the bottom corner to secure victory for the boys.
An excellent game from both sets of players which was fiercely competed. St Williams can feel hard done by not to take anything from the game but well done to Colman for playing to the final whistle.
MOM: Reuben Houghton and Charlie Garratt – Rocks at the back for the team, blocking and tackling time and time again.
Year 3 have been having fun making different lego models. Our club received three new classic boxes of lego. It was great fun unpacking and using the lego pieces for the first time. 🙂
