Weekly Update - 3rd November 2017

Welcome back after a lovely half term break, it’s been a relatively quiet start to term 2 but all that is about to change next week!


This week some year 6 children represented Gorse Hill at ‘Debate Mate’ where they learnt the finer points of debating.  The feedback from Miss Brown was that all of our children did us proud and were very good.


Thank you to everyone for your patience whilst the sibling photos were being taken. All of the children throughout the school looked very smart and were excited for their turn. We will send the proofs home as soon as they arrive.


Mr Dredge’s class enjoyed a mile long fun run which left the children both exhausted and exhilarated! Mr Montero complimented the class because they were true ambassadors of the school.  He’s hoping that the majority of KS2 will get the opportunity to do the same in the future.


Mr Montero also reported a successful sporting week with wins at Croft (football), St Francis (netball) and Ferndale (football).


Poppies will be on sale from Monday 6th November – suggested donation is 50p however some items such as wrist bands are a £1.00.


We are looking forward to welcoming our Shanghai visitors to Gorse Hill next week.  Everyone is very excited to be taking part in this amazing event.
