FRIDAY 18th NOVEMBER 2016 GORDONBROCK WEEKLY
Lest we forget In honour of remembrance day last week, the school
came together for a two minute silence to remember
the fallen from the World Wars.
The classes learnt that one hundred years ago was
the worst battle of the First World War and that it
is important that we remember those who gave up
their lives for us to be safe, and to be free. Each
child has created a poppy in remembrance of those
brave people. One poppy from each class will go to
make a whole school wreath as our way of saying
thank you for their ultimate sacrifice. The wreath
will be on display outside the lunch hall on the PHSCE
This weeks problem..
Last weeks solution..
The answers to the problems will be published in
the Gordonbrock Weekly and on the website in
the Children section the following week.
8hr 15mins Learning time lost due to lateness last week.
This is an unacceptable level.
Year 2 Visit to Lewisham Fire Station
The Year 2 classes have all visited Lewisham Fire Station recently.
We have been learning about the Great Fire of London and we wanted
to know how firefighters put out fires these days!
We all had a fantastic time, learning about the firefighters work and
we learnt lots about the fire engines, how different types of fires are
put out and the other jobs they have to do. And yes, they do have to
rescue cats from trees!!
This is what some of the children had to say about their visit.
I liked seeing the man go down the pole. It was funny because we
had to shout, Come down! - Poppy
We climbed up and sat in the front of the fire engine. And we
tried on the helmet - Tracey.
I liked it when he showed us how the hose works. It was very
heavy. - Rigby
Pre-loved books for sale! At Gordonbrock Primary School, we endeavour to
instil the love of reading in all our children.
Our school council representatives are organising
a second hand book sale, on Monday 12th
December. We would appreciate donations of any
primary school age books that are in good
condition. This will enable us to put good books to
good use and provide affordable reading material
to all our children.
The proceeds of the book sale will be used by our
school council representatives to buy new
equipment for our school playground.
Any donations of childrens books will be hugely
appreciated. Thank you to all parents who have
Year 6 Aquamarine
Our first match of the year was played in the rain. This
was not a good start to the season.
10 am Eliot Bank v Gordondbrock 0-2
Man of the match: Stan for good distribution and command of the defence.
We began with only six boys on our team, but by half time we were up to seven and by the end of the first
match we had a complete team. The boys (named The Wet Bandits by Graham) got off to a good start and
Joshua was able to put us in the lead by scoring two goals before the end of the first half. One goal made us all
gasp, Stan kicked the ball from one end of the pitch and it hit Joshua on the back of the head. Joshua ran
round the ball and kicked it into the goal. As you can imagine there was a flurry of applause from the parents. In
the second half there was pressure from our side all the time but the score remained at 2-0
11 am Gordonbrock v Kender 1-3
MOTM: Isaac for being able to adapt and play centre back in both matches. Quote from Graham: He is the
most versatile player on the pitch.
Kender was a more formidable opponent and our team were under pressure from the beginning. Joshua tried to
score and Stan continued to do a good job as goal keeper. Kyson scored, but after a brave save by Stan, Kender
scored back. They then went on to score two more goals. Our boys kept trying to get the ball in Kenders net,
Joshua tried again from a pass from Sammy and Isaac pushed it just over the goal. In the end it was a win for
The boys made a good start and we know that they will work on improving every time they play.
Thank you to Graham for coaching the team.
Well done to: Isaac, Stanley, Kyson, Joshua, Henry, Manu, Sammy and Jerrell.
