Year 5 Fun Run

Year 5 are always eager to help come rain or shine! Today, they took part in a ‘Fun Run’ (organised by the School Council) not only to keep fit and healthy but to also help raise money to buy things for their school. They thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this activity and were keen to keep tabs on the number of laps they had completed. Some chose to run, whilst others were happy to walk. We were really pleased with their enthusiasm and spirit. Well done to you all!!!

 

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.

Year 5 Learning Journey

5MP have been researching about different periods of World War Two. They researched some interesting facts and presented them in the form of posters.

Dol-Y-Moch Trip – February

19 children from year 5 and 6 went on a trip to Dol-Y- Moch from 1st February – 5th February. We really enjoyed learning about the environment in Wales and how to be independent. During our trip around Wales, we took part in activities such as: orienteering, castle exploring, canoeing, mountain biking and slate mine exploring (we had to climb the mountains to get there). Despite all the hard work we did, we got many treats – we went to the beach and had ice-cream from the best shop in Wales. We loved our trip and would like to say thank you to Mr Watson and Miss McElvenny for supporting us and also soaking us wet with the hose pipe (José). The three main rules we had to follow were respect, responsibility and resilience, which we all successfully achieved.

Sky Blues Stars Support Year 5

Today some of the Sky Blues footballers came to work alongside year 5. The children were excited to work with the players and it provided an extra impetus to their fundamental movement skills work. The players responded to questions posed by the pupils and helped them with their activities. During this term all year 5 children will be working with the Sky Blues in the Community to improve their skills. We look forward to a super fit year 5 and perhaps one day some of them will become professional footballers.

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!
