Ribbons & FANBOYS!


Watergate have had a wonderful week that concluded with Chinese New Year celebrations.

The children welcomed The Red Panda Agency into St Martin’s and were delighted at the opportunity to learn how to conduct a traditional Chinese ribbon dance. Inspired by this celebration Watergate sequenced and retold the traditional story of Chinese New Year and created Chinese Lanterns- amazing Watergate.


In addition, the children have really enjoyed welcoming our parent readers, into school, for Jackanory Share a Story. Thank you to all who have volunteered, Watergate have really benefited from this experience. If you still want to volunteer to share a story with us, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Watergate continued their exploration on how words choice can influence and change a piece of writing and looked at the range of conjunctions and connectives. Using the acronym FANBOYS, to remind us of conjunctions and connectives available, the children created a range of different sentences and displayed them on a PicCollage- super work Watergate.
