JG Girls’ Football Team in Wembley!

On Saturday 13th May, girls from the JG Football Team attended the Women’s FA Cup Final 2017 at Wembley Stadium in London!  It was a fantastic day with good weather, great company and endless laughter!  The girls had a brilliant time soaking up the atmosphere of the legendary stadium and gained an insight into playing football at the highest level.

The girls’ football team, who won the Coventry Primary School Football Association Indoor Tournament earlier this year, had this treat kindly organised by Mr Shebl and Mr Watson, who also drove us all the way there!

As always, the girls were a credit to John Gulson with their respectful manners and they took plenty of pictures to cherish this memorable day.

disgusting milk shake

Q: Write the ingredients for a disgusting smoothie

  • Disgusting recipe for a disgusting smoothie
  • A  pile of rank elephant poo
  • 1 drop of blood from an ill chicken’s bottom
  • 3 grams of saliva from an outraged giant
  • 1 cup of moldy cheese and bogey paste
  • A bottle of out of date milk
  • a pinch of sugar
  • and a handful of salt.

Firstly, don’t wash your hands and put out your ingredients.
Secondly, grab your stinking elephant poo and mix it with your unpleasant cup of moldy cheese and bogey paste to form a type of liquid.
Thirdly, add your drop of blood from an ill chicken’s bottom to your poo and paste mixture.
After that, stir in your bottle of out of date milk, it should look creamy now with very spoiled smell to go with it.
Next, pour the mixture into a blender, add the rest of your very distasteful ingredients and blend.
When you have finished, add your pinch of sugar and a handful of salt to add a bit of flavor.
mmmmm, yummy there’s your disgusting smoothie.
ENJOY!!!!

whos in the looQ: Write about a memory or experience of your own that is similar to something you have read in your book.

Once my dad was in the loo and I needed to go too. And that reminds me of the book ‘Who’s in the loo! There once were two children who were desperate to go to the loo, just like me!

A big thank you to all the children who entered the E-Safety leaflet competition. It was very interesting reading all the information you had presented in the form of a leaflet, but unfortunately we (Mr Cross and Miss Verdi) could only choose three winners from KS2

Well done to the following children:

A special prize goes to Aisha (1GG) in KS1 for entering the competition too.

Thank you all for submitting your entries, the standard was very high and you made picking a winner very difficult. Here are all the entries from the runners up:

Mad Science Company Visits School

Half Term Story Telling Workshop

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a number of 7 – 11 year olds to take part in a storytelling and drama workshop for free during the half term break. This will involve listening to storytelling, some creative writing, drama games, and experimenting with stories to create their own performance in small groups. We have Jack Zipes visiting from the US who founded a storytelling program in schools in Minneapolis. For one morning on the 2nd of June 10am-12noon Jack has volunteered to run a storytelling experience for Coventry youth. Please can you forward this to interested parents to get in touch as soon as possible with Emma Parfitt at e.l.parfitt@warwick.ac.uk, or leave Emma a message on 07596865481, to reserve your place.

This event has been made possible by an IAS residential fellowship, the support of the Humanities Research Fund and the Departments of Sociology and English & Comparative Literary Studies

Coventry City Council will provide a room for the event to take place, more details to follow once you have registered.

Sports Relief

On Friday, children took part in a range of activities to raise money for Sports Relief. Everybody came dressed in sports kit and each year group took part in a skipping competition. At lunch time, children lined up to test their penalty shooting skills against our football coaches. Everybody enjoyed the day and raised lots of money for a great charity.

Look out for a final total of money raised in our next newsletter and here on the school website.
