Team JG is back in action!

On Thursday 21 May we played our third league game away to Frederick Bird School. We started a bit nervous as we didn’t have a competitive game for a little while but soon we got our confidence back.

In the first half which we dominated most of it, Adnan passed the ball to Djibril who scored a volley which the goal keeper couldn’t save. In the second half Frederick Bird started fast, but soon Hamza got the ball and passed to Djibril who scored his second.

Frederick Bird scored their only goal from a long shot, few minutes later Djibril and Mustaf came close to scoring but the ball hit the crossbar twice. They came close again to scoring but our great Goalie Tharek made a fantastic triple save, enough to make him Man of The Match.

5 minutes before the end Hamza scored a goal to end the match 3-1 to us. We are so pleased with the win and looking forward to the next games.

Report by Hamza and Djibril

Team: Hamza (C) Tharek – Unais – Adeel – Mustaf – Adnan – Aqeel – Saalih – Djibril

The Fire service and Police visit Reception

Reception children had some special visitors last week! On Thursday the Fire fighters came in their fire engine to talk to us about what they do. We learnt that they help people in car crashes, they help put fires out and that they help people if they are stuck in buildings. We loved sitting in the fire engine!

On Friday we had a visit from two Police ladies, they talked about how they can help us if we are lost and they showed us the different hats that they wear!
