Healthy Breakfasts in Nursery

This week the children in Nursery have been learning all about healthy breakfasts. We have talked about the things that we like to eat in the morning which are good for us, such as porridge, corn flakes and yoghurt with fruit. We have also talked about the food that we like to have as an occasional treat, such as chocolate, cake and sweets, which taste delicious but contain a lot of sugar. We know that these are not very good for us in the morning, and to make the best start to the day we need a healthy breakfast!

Year 1’s Glorious Sky’s

Sports for Champions

Wow!!! What a fun day we all had today. Eden Francis, Olympic Champion, came to our school to complete four different physical activities with our children.  We have all been very busy raising sponsorship money making a total of £366. Kayden from 2CP managed to raise a grand total of £50!!! Well done Kayden.

I want to thank all the staff and children that took part today. You all helped to make it a very enjoyable day and Eden told me before she left what a lovely School we have and how delightful our children are to work with. What a lovely thing for her to say, a big pat on the back is needed to all KS1 and KS2 children of John Gulson Primary.

Year 5 and 6 Severn Trent Assembly

Year 5 and 6 have learnt a lot about water, both the good and the bad sides. Thanks to the courtesy of Severn Trent we were able to learn even more as we discovered how the water finds it way to our taps and what happens to it once it’s flushed in a toilet. We also thought how to use less water during everyday life. Special thank you to Malcolm from Severn Trent who politely found time to explain and show the whole process in a fascinating way.

Our trip to Hatton Farm

Reception children visited Hatton Farm for the day. The children had the opportunity to take part in a lot of fun activities. They had the chance to hold some animals and to feed them too. The slide was enjoyed by all the children; they loved climbing to the top and then sliding down. Lots of children were brave enough to go on the Zip wire. The tractor ride was bumpy, but was given big thumbs up by the children! The farm catered for everyone.
