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.
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 the last day of the half term, pupils were given the opportunity to test out their survival skills at Ringsfield Hall. Having built shelters, which were tested by the arrival of a ‘storm’, children then worked together collect useful items- some natural- in order to make food and drinks. The children really did well to join in and make the most of the opportunity, and they were a real credit to the school in their efforts and behaviour. SF
