  • Mrs La Farge’s blog

    Dear Parents It suddenly feels a lot like Christmas – we have heard the cheerful sounds of all the children preparing for their productions, we have learnt in assembly the meaning of the Advent candles and then the fantastic Gateway Christmas tree was erected and lit outside the hall yesterday. Mrs Wilkes and I proudly helped the Year 5 and 6 school council decorate a Christmas tree at St Peter and St Paul’s Church with some beautifully creative decorations made by all the pupils at Art Club last week. The display of decorated trees will be on show all weekend […]

  • Year 5 Rugby v Berkhamsted – Friday 25 November

    Berkhamsted B 10 Gateway A 7 Berkhamsted C 12 Gateway B 7 This was the third match for these two year 5 teams, in as many weeks. Henry G continues to lead the B team with real conviction and ran in several tries along with Freddie H, Alex H and Sam W. The game was fairly even, at the half way stage, but Berkhamsted were stronger in the tackle and stifled Gateway’s attempts to break through. The second half followed a similar pattern, despite their best efforts to battle for possession. The boys, from both teams were particularly impressed by […]

  • ISA Hockey Tournament at the Lee Valley Hockey Centre – Thursday 24th November


    On Thursday 24th November a squad of 9 Year 6 girls represented Gateway in the ISA Hockey Tournament at the Lee Valley Hockey centre. It was an exciting day as the girls got to play on the 2012 Olympic pitch! The girls started off the tournament well considering they had never played on a pitch this size before. The girls showed excellent stick work and managed to drive the ball down the pitch making great passes. The first game was tough and unfortunately in the last minute the other team got a lucky goal. The girls went on to win […]

  • Year 3 enjoy writing their ‘Dear Greenpeace’ letters

    This week we have enjoyed writing our Dear Greenpeace letters, inspired by the lovely book by Simon James. The children had some very creative ideas for the animals they found. We haven’t got space to detail them all but here is a selection: Jorge found a tiger swimming in his bath, Zachary found a golden eagle eating a fish from his pond, William found a sloth in his bath with a shower cap on and Rosie found an orange squirrel monkey eating a banana in her garden. The children used their learning about letter writing to write formal replies from […]
