On Tuesday 6th February 2018, Year 6 took part in an inter-house water polo competition. Everyone who was able competed and cheered!
During swimming lessons some water polo skills had been practised, some rules of the game learned and tactical elements discussed. The inter-house competition was a great way to show -case all the important skills and team work which had been practised.
The competition was noisy, hot, but most enjoyable. Lots of goals were scored, and goalies made some terrific saves.
Well done to Year 6!
The final score was:
Joint first, Wells and Hunstanton, with 10 points each
Third Cromer with eight points
Fourth Caister with 4 points
Thank you very much to Mrs M and Mr C for helping, supporting and keeping everyone safe.
On Friday 24th of November 2017 South Norwich’s Labour MP, Clive Lewis, came to visit our school. In the meeting prior to visit, each Class suggested questions we could ask Clive Lewis for his visit and feed back to the School Council. The Executive School Council welcomed him to our school, showed him the questions and together we selected some of the good questions to use in the assembly. Clive Lewis held a fantastic assembly, telling us some very interesting facts and sharing some funny stories. Everybody enjoyed the visit and we felt very lucky to have been visited by a very important and busy person such as Clive Lewis to our school.
Our school open afternoon, for information to new parents, is on Monday 27th November starting at 1.30pm.
For any more information please contact the school 01603 508530.
Before the Easter holiday, 35 children took part in the 2017 Level 1 cycling. Luckily the weather was kind and everyone was able to improve their cycling skills.
Children learned and practised:
- Basic bicycle maintenance
- How to be easily seen with conspicuous clothing
- How to make a safe start, a safe stop and an emergency stop
- Cycling in straight lines, around corners, in-between cones
- looking behind safely while cycling
- How to cycle slowly.
Everyone who took part received some cycling goodies and a certificate.
Well done everyone!
For the second year running our whole school community took part in a fantastic festive quiz today. We worked in our houses with mixed-year group teams to answer questions about Christmas traditions, Christmas around the world and missing lyrics as well as Christmas anagrams. Mrs Sandford was the quiz master and we all had lots of fun.
Well done to our talented violinists who treated us to a special recital this morning. We enjoyed a wide range of music from pieces inspired by fireworks to ‘Jingle Bells’ to kick start our Christmas jumper day. It was a great performance.
Everyone looked fantastic today in their Christmas jumpers. School Council organised the festive non-uniform day in order to raise funds for playground equipment. For the first time ever, the whole school community sat down together in the hall to enjoy their delicious Christmas dinner at the same time. The atmosphere was very jolly with our amazing Christmas tree and lots of Christmas music.
The year 6 House captains organised teams of six players who could attend training and then the competition after school on Friday 25th November.
The competition was very close, with lots of tactical manoeuvres, inspiring team play and lots of goals scored and even more goals saved. The goal keepers made some very brave saves, keeping the scores very close.
Skills learned during training were put to good use, and several players really shone during the competition.
Unfortunately Wells had two players who were unable to make the competition at short notice, due to ill health, but the remaining four players worked hard, kept a positive sporting attitude and finished in second place. Absolutely brilliant!
The final scores were:
First with 8 points, Caister
Second: with 7 points Wells
Third: with 6 points Hunstanton
Fourth: with 3 points Cromer
Thank you to Mrs.Roe, who kept score and did an amazing job of time-keeping.
Congratulations to all at Colman Junior who took part in our extreme reading challenge. It has been fantastic to see all of the imaginative places you enjoyed reading over the summer holiday.
Look out for the fantastic photos on display in school. Ella in Year 4 even made this great video.
