Years Five and Six have worked hard together to produce a news paper and radio station, which are called Gorseland Times and GSRS. They have written and recorded news and news all by themselves. We are very sorry that this issue is taking so long to come out. The reason is that lots of people are not coming any more. It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to come but we would be very grateful if anyone would like to. It’s very fun but you have to work hard. Thanks to everyone who does come. Hope you enjoy this issue. Intro written by Billy J, Cameron L, Joseph L and Ollie V. (The Editors)


The children at Gorseland are looking forward to the Two Steves visiting the School on Wednesday 20th June for the afternoon. Steve Barlow is tall and hairy, Steve Skidmore isn't! Together they are Britain’s most popular comedy writing and performing double act for young people. The 2 Steves met over twenty years ago when they were both teaching in Nottingham. Since then they have written over 130 books together. They have also acted as series editors on numerous reading programmes for several major publishing houses.

The Two Steves - Action Dogs Game Show Tour

To celebrate the launch of their new series, Action Dogs, the Two Steves (through the generosity of Usborne, the publisher of the series) will be bringing their Action Dogs Game Show Tour to Gorseland (Years 2 to 6). ***New Action Dogs titles will be available to purchase on the day*** Further details to follow - In the meantime if you want to know more visit their website www.the2steves.net and find out more!


What was it like in Sri Lanka? Very hot and the landscapes were like a jungle. The beaches were very nice and there were all different things to look at. How was it different to England? The main difference was that there roads were really busy and nobody took care when driving on the right hand side of the road. Also it was actually quite scary driving a tuk-tuk. They don’t have any pet s so there were a lot of dogs roaming around and there were cows walking down the roads! Were they as religious as us? They were more religious than our school as a whole and all the teachers were very religious. They enjoy showing people all their religious temples and t hey took lots of blessings. Were you inspired by the things in Kudawella? The thing that inspired us most was the way that the children were happy with everything they have even as they don’t have as much as us.

How to be a great friend!!!!!!! 1) First of all you need to know how to trust your friend and to be able to talk to them about personal matters. 2) You need to be able to be yourself around all friends and be able to forgive them easily. 3) Do not be all bossy and insult them about things. 4) If they are new welcome them into the class. 5) Sometimes friends can be sad so make them happy and maybe use some humour to cheer them up. 6) Don’t leave your friends alone when they are upset make sure that they are ok before going to play with your other friends or you could invite them to play with you. 7) To make them feel more welcome invite them round to play and when you know them better you can start having them round for sleepovers and have lots of chocolate and sweets. 8) As a tip you should introduce them to other friends instead of them hanging to you all the time. 9) When with a friend you should never embarrass them because then they may not want to be your friend again. 10) Do not always cling around your BFF they may not like it and may feel uncomfortable.

TOP TIPS Ask your friend if it is ok to play with someone else when you want to play with them!!!

Sport News! M.U.G.A. In the summer we sometimes have tennis out in the MUGA and there is a big net which is doubles one and there are single ones which are smaller than the double one.

Cricket We usually have that in the summer to .We don’t really have teams we just have a bowler fielders and back stop and the batters.

Football We usually play football on the M.U.G.A. but we some times play on the play ground. We can not play football on the field because there are little black bits.

Running Running is on Tuesdays and Fridays. Mr Guite and Mrs Rose run it, you run through the woods and if you are in running you can do athletics which is also run by Mr Guite and Mrs Rose and we do it on the filed opposite the school and on the M.U.G.A.

The Building Work Behind the KS1 classrooms you probably would have seen some big diggers and lots of construction. It is taken a lot of time and a lot of work but it now looks fantastic! Do you know what it is? Well it’s a mini amphitheatre for children to perform in and have class assemblies. The children in year 1&2 are really exited and can’t wait to use it. I’m sure everyone thinks it’s amazing!


If you shape it like a heart and your really good at making them it may look a bit like this. Black Forest Victoria Ingredients: Cake: 225g unsalted butter 200g golden caster sugar 1 tablespoon golden syrup 200g self-raising flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 25g cocoa powder, sifted 4 medium eggs 100ml milk Filling: 300g black cherry jam 1 tablespoon kirsch 350ml double cream 2 tablespoons finely grated dark chocolate

Remember to get an adult to hep you with anything sharp and wash you hands before you start.

If you’re really good and you shape it like a heart it might look like this

Method 1. Preheat the oven to 190*c, gas mark 5 and butter a 20cm cake tin. 2. Put all the cake ingredients in a large food processor and cream together. 3. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin and smooth the surface. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the tin and leave to cool. 4. Blend the jam with the kirsch in a bowl. In another bowl whisk the cream until it starts to form soft peaks. But be careful not to let it stiffen as it will be hard to spread. Remove the cake from the tin. 5. Slit the cake into three layers with a bread knife. Spread the lower layer with half of the jam and half of the cream. 6. Repeat with the next layer, using up most of the remaining jam, all of the cream and lay the top layer in place.
