The Royal Norfolk Show 2018

The whole school took part in making a gorgeous garden feature supported by the PTA for the Norfolk Show ‘Our Coast’ competition. Our entry represented our four school houses: Caister, Wells, Cromer and Hunstanton. Each pupil in school created a pebble with their house colour and a small picture that signified their house’s coastal location. Also, each pupil researched and created either a postcard, poster or information pack. The research resulted in finding lots of interesting information and many facts.

As a result our garden won the Gold Gilt . We are all thrilled to bits!


Deaf Awareness Week May 7th-11th

On Wednesday this week, Malcolm Sinclair came for a special assembly. He teaches British Sign Language (BSL) to children across Norfolk. He signed to us about growing up in family of both Deaf and hearing people and now living with a family of hearing people, all of whom use sign to communicate.

He signed how he loves visiting Colman Junior School because there are so many children who are keen to communicate with him. He showed us how much fun BSL can be and how useful in some situations, for example when you are a long way away from someone and don’t want to shout! Thank you Mr Sinclair. We will keep practising!

News Flash

On Wednesday 18th April, Jo Phillips, came into assembly to share with us the way a news report is written and made. During the assembly, she gave us some ideas about selecting a good story, writing the story in simple language for the ear and some tips to keep the news report to exactly 3 minutes.


New Playground Equipment – April 2018

As the sun was out, we were able to play with our new  equipment on the field. Our new equipment was purchased, with the money raised from events organised by the School Council. As you can see, we had fun exploring what was new inside the boxes.

SNOW PLAY… Creating Snow Sculptures


Mitch Johnson Author Visit

Last week children in Year 5 and 6 enjoyed meeting  Mitch Johnson and hearing all about his debut novel, Kick.

Kick tells the story of twelve-year-old Budi, an Indonesian boy who works in a sweatshop and dreams of becoming a footballer. The novel is endorsed by Amnesty International UK because it upholds and illuminates many children’s rights. The event encouraged us all to think about where in the world our clothes are made and the conditions facing workers.

There was an opportunity for children to buy signed copies of the book, which we also have in our school library and it has been fantastic to see so many children reading Budi’s story for themselves.


Water Aid Assembly

On Monday 8th January, Geoff Moulton came into assembly, to share with us the amazing work Water Aid complete around the world. During the assembly, he make us aware that many people across the world do not benefit from clean water and decent toilets. With the help from donations, Water Aid have transform millions of lives every year in 28 countries with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

On Friday 12th January, we are having a Non-uniform day to raise money for Water Aid by bringing in a £1 and wearing blue and white.


Y6 Christmas Stockings

For the last couple of weeks of term the children in year 6 have been busy with a D & T project- using a range of stitches to construct a Christmas stocking. These should by now be on the way home- results from both classes in photos below.


INTO Students visit CJS to share their ideas around our assembly ‘Magic Maths’

Students from the A Level Newton Programme enjoyed the opportunity to pass on some of their experiences of maths and the importance of maths in their lives and intended future careers.  All the students are studying A Level Maths and they presented some of the methods and tricks they were taught as children in their respective countries – China; Hong Kong; South Korea; Turkey; Russia; Georgia; and Malaysia.  They were very impressed with both the maths ability of the children and their excellent behaviour. A big thank you to Ms Smith for this and all our Community Engagement activities at Colman Junior School.
