On Wednesday 18th July, twenty-two year 5 and 6 pupils who had volunteered to be part of the programme, completed their training with the Sports Partnership, Norwich.
All of the pupils who passed the morning training and will out helping at lunchtimes to organise fun games.
On Thursday 19th April, two teams of 6 children from Year 5 and 6 went to the City Academy to play High 5 netball matches against other local schools; both teams playing two matches each. Although some of their matches were tough, their positive attitude drove them on and their commitment and team spirit shone through. It was an absolute pleasure to watch their games improve as they went along – working together as teams and supporting each other well.
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.
