On Tuesday 11th July Year 4 were fortunate to be able to visit the Norwich Synagogue. It was an excellent opportunity to learn more about Judaism and experience aspects of the religion first hand, from handling artefacts to participating in a mock Shabbat.
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.

A group of children from across the school walked into the city centre to watch Fantastic Mr Fox at Norwich Theatre Royal. It was a fantastic experience and the children loved the story of cunning, greed and the power of friendship.
On Monday 10th July we were visited by David Solomons, author of ‘My Brother is a Superhero.’ We loved hearing about the inspiration for his popular series of books and suggesting our own idea for a superhero. Children were inspired by the visit and are already busy reading the adventures of Luke and his superhero brother. Don’t forget to look for the signed copies of the series in our school library.
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.
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 liberal democrat candidate received 22 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.
