   Latest News:

Tollgate staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all our families for their ongoing support over the year. We wish you all a wonderful summer holiday and look forward to welcoming all the children back on September 2nd.

'Green Day' at Tollgate:

During School Council's weekly meetings, members raised the importance of recycling more and making a difference to the environment. They wanted to help in any possible way so requested to have a whole school 'Green Day', in which all children participated in a range of activities related to recycling.  Children at Tollgate wore green and enjoyed creating various projects, using their recycling from home.

Year 2 Library Visit:

Year 2 visited Plaistow Library to meet Matt Carr? (the author of Dave and Greta Make the World Better). During their visit, Matt explained that the main characters in this book were named after the inspirational environmentalists Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg. The children had a fantastic time listening to the story, and ?can't wait to reflect some of Matt's ideas about looking after the world.

Child of the Term:

Congratulations to all the children selected as 'Child of the Term' by their class teacher. All of you are role-models for our school -  we are very proud.

HAF Summer Programme:

Newham Council is working with a range of organisations and schools to offer free places at holiday clubs this Summer. These places are funded through the government’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme. There is something for everyone! Sports, drama, cooking, music, arts & crafts, dance, fun day trips and much more!  All clubs will also provide a delicious, healthy meal each day. Parents and other family members can also get involved in food and nutrition activities.
