Weekly Update - 27th November 2017

It’s been another busy week here at Gorse Hill!  We celebrated our Science Dazzlers in a special assembly – well done to everyone who completed the science homework competition and congratulations to all the winners (shown on twitter).

Year 4 looked amazing on Wednesday in their Tudor Costumes (shown on twitter). A special round of applause for Miss Boddy and Mr Dredge who truly entered into the spirit; we particularly like the tights Mr Dredge!
Also on Wednesday, we celebrated our Excellent Ending in which all the children thought about the qualities they have that would make them a good king or queen. Thanks to all the parents who came to work with their children. Thanks also need to go to the parents who came to the phonics workshop led by Mrs Thompson this week.

Years 5 and 6 were also lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend a show debate this week. We have been taking part in debates with other schools in The White Horse Federation so this will have helped us enormously.

It’s also been a busy sporting week. On Wednesday we participated in a Dodgeball competition at Lydiard Park. There were 14 teams involved and we finished 2nd – well done Dodgeballers! Unfortunately, on the same day our first netball league game was cancelled due to the weather.
On Thursday we took part in the WHF Tag Rugby competition where we finished 2nd. Well done to our children.
