On Friday 7th July, our super six CJS Sports Leaders ventured out of school to enjoy an afternoon at Quasar. This was their choice of activity, a reward for all their hard work over the year, leading play activities during the lunchtime period. After two games, they cooled down with a slushy! Everyone had fun.
47 Colman Korfballers walked to the Hewett Academy for the annual Norfolk Schools Summer Korfball Tournament.
Everyone was a true ambassador for our school, showing good sporting conduct and promoting fair sporting behaviour. With great team spirit and a willingness to play well, the teams were absolutely amazing. Accurate passing, strong, safe catching, making plenty of shooting opportunities and some fabulous goals.
The year 4 team won and were presented with the shield which we will share with Hillside for one year.
Special thanks to Tayla, Gracie and Billy from Year 6, who have helped coach the Year 4 squad this year and must take credit for enabling the year 4 korfballers to play so well.
Also, many thanks to Mrs Tobin, Mrs Phillips, Mrs Copland, Mrs Jones, Miss Nixon, Mrs Hudson and Ms Smith who all worked hard to ensure our players stayed safe and played well.
I am a very proud Miss Cole
Well done to the Colman Athletics Team who recently took part in the SSP Athletics Competition on Thursday 15 June. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with children from Year 3 to Year 6 competing against seven other Norwich schools in track and field at the UEA Sportspark.
All the children did exceptionally well and were a credit to the school. Particularly well done to the Year 4 girls’ team and the Year 6 boys’ team who came first and second respectively. Overall, Colman came 5th with 117 points. Check out the SSP website for more photos and information.
On a sunny Tuesday morning Colman went to Eaton Park to take part in the Great School Fun Run. The children approached the event with great enthusiasm and we all enjoyed a run together. It was fantastic not only to see everyone trying so hard but to see and hear the support given to each other. Well done everyone and keep up the running.
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 Lara
On Tuesday 25th May, members of Year 4 took part in the girls Norfolk School Games Football Finals. The children had a fantastic time and were a credit to the school demonstrating a fantastic sporting attitude. They were committed throughout and encouraged each other both when winning and losing. Their excellent performance was rewarded by winning the Plate. Well done to all involved.
On Tuesday 21st March, two Year 4 teams took part in a girls football competition at the UEA Sportspark. The girls did themselves proud showing great teamwork and determination and had lots of fun along the way. Not only was great attitude displayed but one of the teams went on to win the competition and qualify for the girls football finals which will be held at the Football Development Centre on Tuesday 8th May.
Well done to all those involved and good luck in the finals
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.
