Haojia, Harry and Noah completed a 1.5 km run at Chantry Park. Well done boys!
Riagan won Gold in the Manchester Youth Karate Open Championship and first place in the MEOPHAM Open Championship. He says his success is done to perseverance and never giving up when training is hard. Well done!
Pupils across the whole school have been heard having fun with language during our Voice Box joke-telling competition. The event has raised awareness of the need to develop communication skills and confidence. Pupils and staff voted for Gorseland’s funniest joke at today’s class meeting – can you guess what it is?
The Year 7s participated brilliantly in our Big Soup Share this week and have developed their understanding of how produce can be locally sourced. Having harvested the vegetables from our allotment and garden areas, the pupils walked safely to Tesco where they located and purchased the remaining ingredients needed for our recipes. The pupils then improved their kitchen knife skills while making leek and potato soup, flatbreads, dips and apple crumble. Our shared learning event with family members included preparing the allotment for planting again, completing our remembrance garden projects and creating decorations for our tree dressing challenge. We then enjoyed our shared lunch and the pupils said how happy and proud they felt knowing they had been fully involved in preparing our lunch.
A big thank you to everyone who was able to share this experience with us!
The Year 7 pupils in Falcon Class have settled in well and are
really enjoying completing STEM challenges each morning to develop their
communication, teamwork, thinking and problem solving skills. They have created
domino runs, explored different uses for construction materials, created various
cup towers (including with chopsticks!), followed paper aeroplane designs before
testing and adapting them, and constructed then developed marble runs. What a fantastic
start to each day! The Year 7s will be working towards their CREST award over
the next few weeks – watch this space.
