"Lovely crafts made by the kids themselves. All were fantastic at selling and working out how much spent and how much change needed."
"Really impressed with the quality of work and standard of work that is being produced. The displays look fantastic and there is a lovely feel to the environment she works in. I also think the learning lodges are a great idea as this will help create more learning space"
"It has been interesting to see how her work is beautifully laid out in her books, and to see the different things she is working on.She has really enjoyed showing me her work in detail! We are very proud of her"
" I am so proud of the work which both my boys have achieved. The teachers have been amazing in helping them develop and grow in every aspect . I really enjoyed looking round both their classrooms and found their learning environment both stimulating and fun. It looks like a fabulous place to learn. My boys are certainly happy and that makes for a very proud mum!"
"Good clear concise explanation of the curriculum stages. It is positive to know that her teacher has an excellent understanding of her strengths and weaknesses. The standard of work in her books is very good and there is a good range to topics and work, but was already aware of a lot of this thanks to the various activities we are invited to. "
"Lovely to be able to join in with the children. They all seemed to have a fantastic time- as did the adults"
"Really lovely to see the children working in their classroom and also parents to be involved . I know my child loved me being there"

"Good fun thank you! I've learnt a lot about volcanoes and I'll try the experiments at home too!"
"The session was very enjoyable for both me and the children. A good investigation and I can't think of any issues that need to be improved"
CHRISTMAS MARKET DAY - 'ENTERPRISE'
The things you have said about us. What is particularly pleasing is that you are picking up on the things that matter to us most: manners, confidence, cooperation, team work, our welcoming atmosphere and ethos, the quality of learning and learning experiences of the children, how polite the children are, how much kindness and respect they show each other, how well everyone gets on and how approachable we are. Here are a few of the many comments you made:
“A superb idea! The children across all year groups were able to confidently explain what they were selling and how it had been made. Many demonstrated excellent trading skills! Excellent to see those children in the classrooms engaged with their learning, not distracted by the market.”
“It’s the first time I have been to the Christmas Market – it is fabulous. The children are very excited. They are very polite and keen to sell their products. All the children hoped I didn’t have the right change for my purchases, so they were able to work out how much change to give. It’s a great learning experience for the children. Kidgate is a great school and has fabulous staff. Well done.”
“Fantastic idea and brilliant to visit. We look forward to this event every year. It is so lovely to see all the children so enthusiastic in their selling and the great products they have made. Very good learning process for the children too. Some budding ‘Alan Sugars ‘ of the future.
