We Are Architects!

5AG Have been looking at famous art galleries around the world, using Google Art Project.

We then recorded the features that many art galleries have, such as:

  • Benches for people to rest on when they look at the pictures
  • Security cameras to stop people stealing the pictures
  • Wooden or tiled floors which are easy to clean
  • Clear walls that don’t distract us from the pictures
  • Large rooms full of natural light if possible
  • Spot lights pointing to each picture

Add some more features if you can!

Saif’s World War II Research

What was World War 2?

In the 20th Century there were two ‘world wars’. Many countries were affected by the wars. The first war lasted from 1914 to 1918. Although it was fought mostly in Europe, people called it the first world war. The second world war began in 1939, and ended in 1945. It lasted for 6 years.

World war 2 was fought between two groups of countries. On one side were the Axis powers, including Germany, Italy and Japan. On the other side were the Allies. They included Britain, France, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, the Soviet Union, China and the USA.

Make Do and Mend

During the second world war, people were encourage to ‘make-do and mend’. If a chair broke, you mended it. If your sock had a hole, you got a needle and thread to repair it. Clothes rationing lasted from 1941 until 1949.

Well done for all this extra research, Saif! –Mr Geddes.

Football: John Gulson 10 – 0 Hearsall Common

On the 19th of October, John Gulson football team played Hearsall Common Community School. The turn-out of the fans was great, because we had at least 45 people watching us. John Gulson’s line-up was:

  • Goalkeeper: Jaber
  • Defenders: Zuned, Eesaa, Wajahat (C)
  • Midfielders: Muhammad Yasin, Hanibal. Yaqoub
  • Subs: Abdul, Anes, Shakeel, Asim

Everybody played great, but especially Wajahat our captain, who did a great job defending.

Muhammad scored right at the start with a great goal, then Yaqoub scored another. After a while, Shakeel put one in the back of the net, from Yaqoub’s assist. Anes (hat-trick) and Abdul finished the game off with several astonishingly good goals.

The defenders and played extremely well, not conceding a single goal. Also, Jaber had a good game in goal, making some fine saves. The other team nearly scored by hitting the crossbar. They were very good sports, and never gave up.

Thank you for all of your support. We hope you keep it up!
