‘Book Blether’ in Year 1

What do you like to read? In Year 1 the children have been thinking about the range of books we have and which titles they enjoy most. They shared a wide range of books before choosing a favourite to recommend to a friend. Which came out top – Fiction or Non-fiction? On the day it was half and half.

Year 1 have been practising some Dance moves, plus creating their own Dance moves independently and as a pair.  We are looking forward to sharing our Dance with you all on Friday!

‘I Want One!’ in Year 1

‘I Want One!’ by Dennis Reader was our first story after the holiday. We used it to help the children to think about how people behave and what happens when someone is greedy. There is a snake in the story and the children were challenged to find out about snakes and show different ways of representing them.’

Voice Box Joke Competition

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?

Tree Planting

Today, children across the school planted 450 trees around the school grounds. The children attached handmade labels to their tree so they can remember which tree is there’s once they grow up.
