We can’t wait to welcome you to 3SK and 3LK this September. We have got a really exciting year planned with lots of fun activities and Topics including Local Explorers, Egyptians and Nature in Norfolk! We know it will feel very different for all of you, joining a new school with new teachers but we will all be here to support and help you with the transition into a new school!

Our first topic will be Local Explorers, where we learn lots about map work, compasses, orienteering, and lots of really exciting art. In the Spring term, we learn lots about the Egyptians! We get to do lots of fun activities like mummifying tomatoes, making canopic jars, as well as building Shaduf’s and learning Egyptian hieroglyphs. In the Summer term we will look at Nature in Norfolk and learn lots about different wildlife, art and nature.

Here are some links if you want to begin to research about our first topic, Local Explorers and explore the ‘Bewilderwood’ story!

If you have any worries or concerns, please do get in touch. We can’t wait to meet you all and welcome you to Colman Junior School.

Have a wonderful summer and we will see you all in September!
