'An Outstanding School' – Ofsted June 2015   Read the report here

Pablo Pic'ollage!


Watergate have been busy showcasing their learning in different ways this week.

The children kick started the week by identifying and exploring the use of nouns and verbs. Working in house teams, the children displayed their new knowledge on PicCollage- super work Watergate. The KS1 SPAG assessment requires the children to identify nouns and verbs in sentences and next week we will progress to investigate adverbs and look at choosing more appropriate words to add to our descriptions. Meanwhile, to consolidate your children’s new understanding, the following games are great to play at home.

Watergate used fact files, books and websites to conduct research on the aritist they have been studying, Pablo Picasso. They collated all their fascinating facts into a PicCollage and showcased their findings for the rest of the class- the results were fabulous. The children used their PicCollages to write fact files on this famous artist- well done Watergate!

Next week we are hoping to start making Picasso inspired craft. Please may you bring in a selection of cardboard? Different textures, size and shapes in your child’s book bag- thank you.

Watergate have also been busy consolidating their understanding of odd and even numbers and place value this week. Once again, the children showcased their understanding on PicCollage. The children used place value counters and base ten resources to partition numbers into Hundreds, Tens and Ones which will assist their understanding of column addition and subtraction, a method we will embrace in the coming weeks.

The following games are great to help your child exercise their new skills in preparation for the coming weeks.
