Avoiding Danger!


Watergate are in full Christmas spirits and have enjoyed a busy week that started with the Christmas disco, involved two trips and concluded with Christmas craft.

The children have also enjoyed getting messy in maths and applying their understanding of fractions to pizza. The children chose their pizza topping wisely and organised cheese, ham and peppers into fractions on the pizza base- yum!


As the week progressed the children, looked at telling the time and exercised their prior learning to identify o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past.

Please work with your child to consolidate their skills with the resources provided in the Curriculum Presentation packs and the following game;


On Tuesday, the children were excited to join their buddies in Newgate and Bridgegate for a trip to the theatre. We were treated to a wonderful performance of Cinderella.

On Wednesday Watergate concluded their topic, this half term, with a trip to DangerPoint. The children enjoyed working together in the different zones to solve puzzles, identify dangers and learn how to stay safe.

Thank you to all the parents and carers that joined us on the school trips this week, we really appreciate your support.
