The Great Debate!

On Tuesday 5th February, three year 6 children – Sannah, Yaqoub and Anes – represented John Gulson at the Rotary Club of Coventry Youth Speaks debating competition.

They opposed the argument from Courthouse Green School that junk food should be banned. Six other schools also competed in separate debates. The children rose to the challenge, arguing fluently and with confidence, and were eventually named as winners of the round.

They will no doubt now start preparing for the final debate, with the support of Miss McPheators and Ms Hussain who have worked extremely hard to coach and prepare them. The final will take place at the Coventry City Council House – we wish them the very best of luck!

The Gruffalo at John Gulson

On Friday 1st of February the Gruffalo visited John Gulson Primary School!

Children from Nursery to year two were invited to bring their father or male carer to school for the afternoon to take part in ‘Fun for Fathers’ an afternoon of arts, crafts and story telling.

A great afternoon was had by all, and children and their fathers/male carers were given lots of helpful ideas to take away to support creative and fun learning at home.

A very big thank you to all the Dads/carers who gave up their time to attend! Look out for further ‘Fun for Fathers’ workshops in the coming half term!

Top of the group but out in the quarter-final

Our football team had a great night at the Football League Community Cup qualifications at AT7 Centre last night.

We played very well at the group stages and topped the group with 7 points after drawing first match against Manor Park School and then beat Cannon Maggs 4-0 and St Andrews Benn 2-0 to qualify to the Quarter-Final.

The Quarter-Final was a very tough match against Chetwynd School, they were strong built young-men and played very good football, we lost 4-0 to them and they went on to reach the final which will be played at the Ricoh Arena on 19th January, we wish them luck.

Big thanks to all parents who came out in such cold weather to support their children and the team.
