5BJ Diwali Assembly

5BJ did an amazing assembly on Bandi Chor Divas (Sikh Divali). They dressed up in beautiful outfits for the performance. The assembly included included a play, singing, dancing and poetry.

The staff of Phase 4 dressed up in traditional ethnic clothes to highlight the divali atmosphere.

A big thank you from 5BJ!

Year 5 RE work

Year 5 connected Art with Religious Education by creating stained-glass style mosaic pictures (very shiny) and clay vessels (very colourful). Children meticulously prepared the works of art that can be admired below. Good work!

Voting commences for John Gulsons 2017-2018 School Council

Children had the opportunity to vote for class representatives for this years student council. Each child was given a voting slip to make their choice which they then posted into the ballot box.

Year 5 preparing for voting

Students throughout the whole school are preparing for the upcoming elections of the School Council. Two candidates from each class will try to convince other children to vote for them. The very heart of democracy, which is voting, will show who gets to represent each class as a school councillor. Year 5 prepared some interesting posters showing why they should get your vote.

 

Solar System with Year 5

Even though it’s been just one week, Year 5 started with Science and Art to create great pieces of work depicting the Solar System. The posters, created with pastels, show fantastic creativity and marvellous skills of Year 5 students. Well done 5BJ, 5SR and 5MP!

  

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.

In front of the Bobby Moore statue.

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.
