Welcome to Year 6
Being in Year 6 at Abbey Gates is a special and memorable time. Mrs Jordan, Mrs Hatton, Mr Martin and the children endeavour to work hard whilst having lots of fun along the way!
In the Autumn term our topic is 'Lest We Forget' and we hope the subject will inspire our future writers, mathematicians, historians, designers and geographers. This year we are very lucky to have Mr Martin in Year Six and, as a qualified sports coach, he will be leading our PE and Games sessions.

Scientific poo making!

Our topic of Ancient Egyptians is now over, although we did go out with a bang in our fantastic Family Assembly! Mrs Wilson and I are extremely proud of the Year 4's for their confidence and brilliant acting skills. We have learned a lot about the Ancient Egyptians this term...

The Year 3 class had a fantastic time at Creswell Crags- they hunted reindeer, explored caves, made camp fires and even created their own artwork. It was a fun packed day and everyone had a great time !
