  • Resource Provision

    Published 27/01/23

    The Resource Provision have been learning all about the topic of On the Farm and have been reading the book ‘Little Red Hen’. The children really enjoyed learning about how bread is made, especially how the Little Red Hen made bread with the help of the farmer. Children had the opportunity to learn this essential life skill of making bread with the help of their teachers. They learned how to follow step-by-step instructions, the importance of hygiene when washing their hands and how to be safe around dangerous tools such as an oven. The bread was delicious!

  • Morph's Epic Learning Adventure

    Published 23/01/23

     

    Hello everyone! 

    We are excited to announce an upcoming art project that will take place over the next weeks called Morph’s Epic Learning Adventure. This project is a great opportunity for you to express your creativity and explore your artistic talents! You will be able to follow our adventure here on our newsletter or on https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/tollgateprimaryschool.

     

    But first, let us introduce Morph!

    It’s a cheeky chap that will join our school next week. As you can see, Morph is very plain and kind of sad.

    Could you get Morph more colourful?

    With your newsletter you are given a template of Morph’s front and back. We would like to see your ideas on how to make Morph look more like one of us….happy and full of colour!

     

    Few points to think about before you start::

    • Who would you want them to be?
    •  Who or what would they represent?
    • What are they going to wear?
    • What colours do you want to use?
    • Would you want anything to be written on them?
    • How could your design be different to everyone else’s?

     

    We look forward to seeing what you create!

    Our Year six children had the amazing opportunity to learn how to sail down at the Docklands in the first half-term. As part of the PSHE curriculum under physical and mental wellbeing they understood how to stay safe in the water, building on knowledge skills attained while swimming last year.
