Blooming Lovely.


Watergate have enjoyed a fantastic week that kick started with the birth of four butterflies.

The children were inspired by the butterflies and eager to learn about the part they play in pollination. Implementing their knowledge of plant parts the children investigated the the 6 steps of pollination, and confidently sequenced these into instructions. Subsequently, Watergate explored the life cycle of a flowering plant and planted a bean seed in their very own pot. We look forward to observing and recording our the stages of germination.


In preparation for next week SATs Watergate have been working hard in SPAG and Phonics. Please ensure you work with your child to complete the reading comprehension, paper one, that was sent as homework. Diet and sleep is essential for a healthy mind, To ensure your child is well prepared please ensure your child has early nights and eats well in the build up to and during the assessment week.

Have a restful bank holiday weekend.
