Year four have hit the floor running this term. Our topic work is all about The Romans and The Invasion of Britain. We have been working hard with Mr Withers learning lots of new songs for our Roman assembly. On top of that, in the afternoon, we have been learning all about Boudica and how she led the Britons to try and defeat the advancing Romans.

An important part of battle in Ancient Rome was to make sure you had sufficient armour and the correct weapons to take on your foe. We have been researching what weaponary and armour they used and have had a go at making some for ourselves taking care to include the finer details.

Here are are some examples of our magnificent shields that we have created.


So much to do!

Our new Reception children have settled into their new classes  and are very keen to learn and experience new things! There is always so much for our little learners to do!

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

Dear parents/carers,

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, on Friday 28th September, is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. We at John Gulson, will be hosting our very own coffee morning and all donations on the day will be made to the charity.

Parents/ Carers

There will be a coffee morning ‘get together’ for parents and carers from 9am to 10am in the KS1 school hall. We are asking if parents can bring in a contribution of either cakes or biscuits for the event (homemade or bought).

We hope that you will be able to come and join us for a coffee, cake and a chat, as well as raising money for a great cause.


Please can children bring in cakes or biscuits to contribute to a cake sale. Children can bring these in on Thursday or Friday and hand these to their class teacher. They will then be able to buy cakes and biscuits at playtime on Friday 28th September. (NO NUTS PLEASE)

Thank you once again for your continued support

Mrs McLeod


Sport In The Community

Hi from Coventry Blaze!

As part of our Sport in the Community programme and thanks to the support of a number of our partners, we are able to offer a limited number of reduced price tickets to local schools for some of our home games.

We have two fantastic games coming up at the Skydome Arena on Sunday 30th September against Sheffield Steelers (5:15pm start) and Sunday 7th October against Belfast Giants (5:15pm start) and we’d like to offer these reduced price tickets to you for these games.

Tickets are available to you at the special price of £7 per ticket per game and you can apply for up 2 adults and 3 child tickets per game.

If you’ve been to one of our games before, you will know what a great night watching Blaze ice hockey can be – if you haven’t been before, this is a great opportunity to see what you’ve been missing !

To reserve your tickets, all you need to do is email by he Friday before each game, with your name, your school, which game or games you would like to come to and the number of tickets you would like to book. There is nothing to pay now – you pay for your tickets on the night when you come to the game – but all we ask is that if you reserve tickets, you do come along or you will be depriving someone else of the opportunity.

Once we receive your email, we will send you a confirmation to let you know that you have been successful and then shortly before each game we will send you a detailed email with everything you need to know about the game.

We look forward to hearing back from you soon
