Starting with some fantastic displays in field events – 6 of our 7 competitors finishing in the top 8 -and therefore scoring points. Both Nathan (4th) and Elizabeth (8th) delivered scoring throws while Kanye was just outside scoring positions. All of the long jumpers scored- Tia and Mat each finishing 8th, while Tom (3rd) and Jazmine (2nd) came close to winning their events.
The track events on Tuesday proved to be a washout, however, praise should be given to the children for the way they dealt with the wet conditions,the changing arrangements, and the waiting for something to happen.
Eventually we did get to compete on Thursday. Overall a very successful day – a number of runners getting into individual finals Jacob (yr3) Macey (yr 4) Eric & Chris (yr 5) Will, Tom & Jazmine (yr 6)- outstanding displays here being Jacob’s 3rd place (50m) and Jazmine’s 2nd (200m) Also pleasing to see the yr 6 and yr 3 boys relay teams make the semis- and the yr 3s go on to compete in their final.
I was really impressed with the supportive attitude shown by children towards others in their team. All who competed did great job, and really did seem to enjoy the event. I was also really pleased with those who contacted us early to say they would be unavailable -disappointing some I know- but saving the need to travel for a number of others-which was helpful. SF

This was our year 4’s very first match, and very exciting. I wanted all our players to learn and improve and I am sure that everyone has.
We played four games, with plenty of drink and snack breaks. While some were playing, some were watching, learning and cheering. The whole team worked hard to improve their spatial awareness and defending skills. Although we have only been training for a few weeks, our passing was accurate and we had plenty of shots. I am extremely happy with our standard of play and the good sporting attitude of our players.
The scores were:
Game 1) Sprowston 0 Colman 2
Game 2) Sprowston 3 Colman 0
Game 3) Sprowston 0 Colman 1
Game 4) Sprowston 0 Colman 0
Well done to our amazing year 4 Korfball players. I am very proud!
On Wednesday, 19th March, the girls Y5/6 football team took part in a match against George White Junior School. It was a closely-fought match with the George White team eventually winning the game 3-0. With the arrival of 4 new players, and the team gaining in experience with every match, the team look closer than ever to gaining their first points of the season. JR
Having won our Autumn mini league we entered the second half of the season grouped with other schools who had similar records. We played three matches in the Spring league, losing twice narrowly- 1-0 against St Williams and the same score at Firside. Whilst we did manage a 1-0 success against Falcon, our interest in the cup came to an end with a 3-0 reverse at Firside just before half term. Our overall record for the season reads:
played 8 – won 4 – drew 1 – lost 3
An enjoyable season where matches have generally been tight and where the group of players involved have always tried to play good passing football.
Thursday 3rd April at UEA
After many hours of training and many hours of shooting practise, we were ready! Excited, proud, nervous, and as ready as we’d ever be.
First of all we played Avenue Junior in the semi -final and won a comfortable 3 – 1. We took early possession and controlled most of the game. I felt very proud watching the team play and pass accurately.
After a few snacks and drinks we were ready for the Year 6 final against St. Williams Way Primary. We knew the game would be tough as most of their team play for Norfolk and every player seemed tall and strong. However, with all our parents watching and cheering we were determined to enjoy this game.
We took early possession and managed to keep the ball well and scored two quick goals. After a few tense moments more goals were scored and all of a sudden we were winning at 4 – 3. We started to tire and in the last few seconds St. Williams scored an equaliser, the final score being 4 – 4. We are sharing the win with St. Williams Way and will keep the trophy for six months. Our team were presented with gold medals and a very loud round of applause.
I am a very, very, proud coach. Thank you to all the players and parents who have supported us.
A round robin style event was played for teams in the upper school- each house playing each other with teams mixed from years 5 & 6. After some excellent play and team work Hunstanton (pictured in green) emerged as the winning house. Thanks to Miss Cole for organising and refereeing.
The Graham Muncer Memorial Cup
Presented each year to a swimmer with a great attitude and also somebody who has worked hard to improve over the year – was awarded to Adam R- in year 6.
Well done to everyone in Year 6 for their fantastic efforts for Sports Relief last Friday. We ran, walked and danced as far as we could in half an hour to raise money and awareness of this great charity.
A strong performance in morning group matches-2 wins out of 3- meant we qualified for the cup competition – in the top 8 of teams attending. Afternoon matches-as we expected- proved much tougher, though whilst we lost all 3 , it was good to see our players adapting and adjusting tactics losing only narrowly against the eventual winners. In our final match- we managed a draw against Drayton to secure joint seventh place overall in the event. A fantastic day- helped by the warmth of the sun and the positive attitude of the players. It was pleasing to note we scored a total of 28 tries in 7 matches -a fair average -the majority of the squad chipping in with a score, whilst defensively- we worked hard to make tackles and proved difficult to score against at times.
On Monday 10th March, 11 pupils from Year 3-6 competed in the Norfolk School Games X-Country finals. They had already come in the top 10 of their age group in Norwich and this was the county final! Each race consisted of around 90 of the best runners from across Norfolk. The races progressed in distance from 1km in Yr 3 to 1.6 in Yr 6. Everyone put in a massive effort and competed amazingly well on a freezing cold day. Most of our athletes finished in the middle pack of their races, a fantastic achievement considering the strength of competition. However, a special mention must go to Rosa who finished 4th in her Yr 3 girl’s race – absolutely incredible! Well done to everyone who competed!
Saturday 8th March 2014
The Tournament was at CNS, in the sports hall. All the Norwich School Korfball teams had been placed into two groups, we were in group A and had three fifteen minute games. The top two teams from each group will then play in a final competition at the UEA.
Colman played first, against Hillside. Both teams played well, passing carefully and making good use of space. We kept good possession and controlled most of the game, winning 2 – 0.
The next game was against White Woman Lane and they scored a very quick first goal, putting us under immediate pressure to regain possession. We then scored three goals and won 3 – 1.
The final game was against St Williams B, and we knew if we won this we would finish top of our group. From the very start, we controlled the game and won a comfortable 4 – 0.
We finished top of our group and will now be playing in the school Korfball finals at the UEA on 3rd April.
I am really proud of the Year 6 team and look forward to the finals.
Colman 1-0 Falcon
A determined team performance by a dominant Colman side, we created a host of chances in the opening half only to be denied by some fantastic goalkeeping-which included a saved penalty on the stroke of half time. The game continued in much the same fashion after the break and eventually a touch of brilliance from Tom F broke the deadlock with a long range effort. A pleasing aspect of the game was the clean sheet, and out defence continued to be vigilant to cut out opponents attacks.
Players: Eric P, Louis B, Freddy H, Nathan S, Isaac H, Tom F, Karnell L, Alfie B, Jake C, Muhammad I, Elliot F.
