Year 5&6 Cricket Competition
The Godolphin Junior Academy Year 5&6 cricket team started the year off in style, at The Slough Schools Dynamo Cricket competition, taking place at Slough Cricket Club on Thursday 23rd September 2021. Coming up against several schools from the local area, the team remained unbeaten throughout the group stages, beating the likes of Iqra Primary and Cippenham Primary respectively.
After a superb victory against Lynch Hill Academy, the team faced fellow Park Federation rivals Montem Academy in a closely fought final. A very entertaining game eventually ended in team GJA narrowly losing by only 4 runs. A massive thank you to The Slough School Sports Network, Berkshire Cricket and congratulations to all the children that took part!
Year 3&4 girls and boys Cricket Festival
The first competition of the new academic year was a Year 3&4 boys and girls cricket skills festival that took place on Tuesday 21st September at Stoke Green Cricket Club. 12 year 4 children represented The Godolphin Junior Academy, the children enjoyed a morning of learning and playing different skill based games hosted by Berkshire cricket club. They worked on bowling, catching and batting. All the children had a fantastic time and left with smiles and a medal for their participation.
Well done Godolphin!
As you are aware we at GJA participated in Census in March. This year’s theme was ‘This matters to us’ and all classes collected data that mattered to them. Some examples were auditing class resources, languages spoken, travel to school, entertainment preferences. Children’s work and our wall display for Census was entered in a national competition and we are very pleased to inform that the judges have praised our efforts and given us a certificate of merit.
Yesterday in our ELSA session the children took a break from discussing emotions and feelings and instead enjoyed icing and decorating some cupcakes.
Can you guess their emotion?
