Term 5 Information


Today we made our Christingles in Forest School. We had the most beautiful, festive morning!

We are so proud of each and every one of the children in Otter Class! They have taken on the challenge of recording our nativity rather than performing for an audience this year and they were fantastic! They have learnt their lines, sung their little hearts out and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. We can't wait for you to see it later this week.

Nativity: Coming Soon!

We did it!

Look out for an announcement about when you can watch it via our YouTube channel.

Term 1:

Welcome to Otter Class!

Meet the Teacher



My name is Miss Gates and I am the class teacher of Otter Class. I have been teaching at Aldington Primary School for 7 years now and been in Otter Class for 4 years. I absolutely love my job and love helping children grow both academically and personally.

One of my favourite things to do it read! I could get lost in a good book for hours! A book (or set of books) I could read over and over again would be Harry Potter! I love magic too so these are brilliant.

I also really enjoy going on adventures! I love finding new places that I have never been and exploring. I live near Dover so I am always keen to be by the sea.

Many of you might know, I love colour, glitter and anything that sparkles really! It always puts a smile on my face.


Can't wait to meet you all.


Miss Gates :)
