Your School Nursery Garden Needs You!

Vote for John Gulson to Win!

John Gulson is excited to have been shortlisted for funding by the Tesco Bags of Help scheme for our much-needed Nursery/Reception garden project.  Tesco only shortlist 3 projects across each region, then the 1st prize of each regional public vote wins £4,000, 2nd prize £2,000 & 3rd prize £1,000 to fund their project.

WE WANT 1ST PRIZE of £4,000!!!!

Vote in Tesco stores during the months of September & October to help us secure a 1st Prize.

Whenever you go into a Tesco Store in Coventry (including express stores) and purchase something, even small please ASK FOR A BLUE TOKEN & PLACE THIS IS THE BOX HEADED JOHN GULSON NURSERY GARDEN. The more tokens we receive in every Coventry Tesco store the better chance we have of getting £4,000 for our School!

You have always been a huge support to the school so we know you will tell everyone you know to vote for us and YOU MUST ASK FOR A BLUE TOKEN when using ANY Tesco Store and vote for our Nursery garden. The more people we tell to do this the more chance we have of getting that £4,000.

You can do this in Tesco Stores from Friday 1st September until Tuesday 31st October.  Please ask all your friends and family vote as well – Every little helps!

Our project aims to tackle the Nursery garden that needs a refresh and some updating so that the children can continue to enjoy the great outdoors at school. The plan is to have weather proof canopy so young children can still explore outdoors not matter what the weather. Refresh our storage sheds, fences and children’s play equipment. This would be the most we could get with £1000 the 3rd prize. So, with £4,000 1st prize we could give our garden a real facelift.

The difference that winning this vote would make to our children is immeasurable and chances like this don’t come along every day so please help by voting for us to Win Win Win!!

Thank you for your continued support.

Sports Week

Last week Mr Watson worked very hard to deliver an awesome ‘Sports Week’. John Gulson children competed in many different events ranging from the spectacular egg and spoon race to a relay race. At the end of the events we even had some parents willing to take part in a parent egg and spoon race. A big thank you to Mr Watson for organising the event and an even bigger thank you to all the children and parents that took part in the events and made the week run very smoothly.

Reception Reading Challenge!

This week the Reception children have been taking on a tricky reading challenge. They had to use their phonics skills to sound out and blend, so that they could read some tricky sentences. They then had to match the sentences to the corresponding pictures. It was hard work, but the boys and girls in Reception tried their best and did really well. Our reading is getting so good that we are now ready for Year 1!
