After many months of hard work and with their SATs finally behind them, the Year 6 children warmly welcomed a visit to Drayton Manor Park on Thursday, where they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

6DM Amazing Americas Project

Now that Year 6 are approaching their final few weeks, we challenged them to a project based on our ‘Amazing Americas’ topic. They were asked to research a country from South America and display their information for the rest of the class to see.

Each group researched the human and physical features of their country, as well as their cultures and traditions. They also researched how rivers work. They then put all of their findings together and presented them on the colourful display boards you can see below.

6CS Football Maths

To celebrate the end of SATs and to mark the final week of the Premier League Season, 6CS have been involved in a variety of Maths problems, all around football.  From interpreting points and goal differences in the Premier League table to calculating time intervals between goals and yellow cards, via organising our own football match fixtures systematically, we had a football-packed week, which we finished by playing a long maths quiz!

Well done again Year 6 for all your hard work so far this year!

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.

Murder Mystery in Year 6

Year 6 children walked into chaos this morning, when they discovered that somebody had been murdered in their classroom! A sergeant from the police left a video message, asking them to put together an official report, with all of the evidence they could find.

The children spent the morning looking at the crime scene and finding clues, trying to piece together what happened. They will now be spending the rest of the week, looking at how to put together a formal report, before sending their reports to the police on Friday!
