Sports Leaders 2017-18

During the summer term, year 5 and 6 pupils were given the opportunity to apply to become a CJS Sports Leader.
In July, the selected Year 5 and 6 undertook a day’s training with the School Sports Partnership to prove they had what it takes to be Sports Leaders. The day focused on key attributes in relation to leadership including communication, cooperation, responsibility and organisation, not forgetting having fun.

The children involved rose to the challenge and we are now lucky to have a team of enthusiastic and trained leaders to run activities during lunch times at school.

Well done to all involved and we look forward to seeing your leadership skills in action around the school.

During the good weather in September, the Sports Leaders have been organising fun games and activities on the field.

Sports Leaders Celebrate

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.

Korfball Tournament Friday 23rd June 2017

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

SSP Athletics

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.

Park Fun Run

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 Cup 2017

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


Fantastic Football from Year 4 girls

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.

Year 4 Football Success

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

House Water Polo Competition 25th November 2016

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.

Year 4 Korfball tournament at CNS

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.
