  • Year 1 identify mystery fragrances

    During the week we have enjoyed a new picture book ”Journeys” in English. Acting outside, imagining we are in one of the pictures in the book, describing what we can see, hear, smell, touch and taste using adjectives, has helped us prepare for using adjectives in our descriptive writing. We used our sense of smell in science to identify mystery fragrances such as mint, flowers, berries and lemon to then match them to their source. We enjoyed working as a team to investigate and share our opinions. Next week we are walking to St Peter and St Paul Church, where […]

  • Year 4 visit Kew Gardens

    Today Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed exploring Kew Gardens, where we learnt lots about the fascinating array of plants that can be found in the rainforest. Everyone was amazed at the variety of plant life found in the Palm House. We also discovered that many products we use in our homes contain ingredients taken from rainforest plants. We also looked closely at the ways leaves are adapted to their rainforest habitat. The children identified drip tips, which enable excess water to run off, and buttress roots, which provide extra stability. We also discovered that epiphytes are plants that live on the […]

  • Mrs La Farge’s blog

    Dear Parents We now know that the most used words to describe the lessons at Gateway School are Engaged, Challenged, Active and Fun. What a great selection and a real credit to the inspiring teaching team here. All Gateway teaching staff were set the task of visiting three classrooms around the school this week, aiming for lessons out of their key stage and away from their specialist subject. Then they had to come up with a word to describe each lesson. It was all done without warning,anonymously and ended with an extremely pleasing result. Far from resting on our laurels, […]

  • Year 6 present their marvellous Roald Dahl machine characters

    Year 6 impressed and wowed us today with their marvellous Roald Dahl machine characters. Each child took on a character which could be brought to life at the push of a button. Children throughout the school, and some visiting parents, thoroughly enjoyed seeing their engaging performances. Some of the children sang, some worked in a group, some had very realistic tantrums! All were confident and entertaining. A special thanks must go to the parents who helped to create their costumes. Thank you for helping to make this a wonderful event for the all the children. Well done Year 6 – […]

  • Reception children are inspired by ‘Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car’

    We hope you enjoy the photo of our trip to Bekonscot Model Village and the children were able to tell you about their fun filled first trip in Reception. The author John Burningham has inspired us this week. ‘Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car’ has provided Reception with many numeracy and English activities.We have sequenced both numbers and parts of the story using both illustrations and text to help us. On Thursday we had the fantastic opportunity for the whole school to get together to celebrate our Harvest Festival and we would like to thank you all for your kind donations. During […]
