On Friday 16th June 17 children went to a Change 4 Life Festival at the UEA sports park. As you can see, the children thoroughly enjoyed the activities. All the children were fantastic and demonstrated an excellent attitude towards team work and perseverence.
Welcome to Year 4! On this page you will find information about our learning and photographs of us at work. You will also find links to useful materials which give you more information about what we are learning in class and about special events. We will be updating this area regularly so keep looking.

4RD had a fantastic time performing at the Open, dancing to the song ‘Revolting Children’ from the musical Matilda. The children worked incredibly hard to learn the dance to ensure they performed to their best. They certainly didn’t disappoint, rising to the occasion and opening the show with great confidence and enthusiasm . The children should feel extremely proud of themselves. Well done everyone.
Last week we were busy learning about General Elections. Year 3 children explained to the rest of the school how a general election works and how to vote. The whole school were invited to register to vote and received a polling card. On Thursday everyone registered cast their vote, either in our polling station or by posting their postal vote.
The results of the mock General Election in the Colman Junior School constituency were as follows:
237 votes were cast.
Turnout was 98%.
The Conservative candidate received 15 votes
The Green party candidate received 37 votes
The Labour Party candidate received 139 votes

The UKIP candidate received 23 votes
1 vote was spoilt.
The candidate for Labour is elected as MP for Colman Junior School.
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 Wednesday 8th March, musicians from the group ‘Chroma’ visited our school to perform a special concert around the theme ‘Birdsong’.
The musicians were;

It was a very lively and enjoyable concert organised by Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Schools Project and below are some reflections from the concert.
The children from Japanese Club wrote and presented a whole school assembly about Children’s Day in Japan. It is a day to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness. Everyone was welcomed to the hall by a recording of traditional Taisho Koto music. Then the children told us all about the koinobori legend and showed us some of the carp they had made as well as telling us about Kintaro, the boy with super human strength. We were treated to a display of the children’s strength as they flexed their muscles wearing homemade kabuto hats. The assembly finished with talk of oak leaf wrapped mochi and a recording of the traditional Children’s Day song.
Kodomo no hi everyone!
