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.
Tennis at Caunton
Years 1 and 2 had a lovely time at Caunton learning a range of tennis skills. Watch out for one of us at Wimbledon in the future!
The Queen’s Birthday

Bubbles and balloons

Patching Art Centre
Year 1 had a lovely time at Patchings Art Centre. We created African art and craft using the techniques of weaving and printing. Look out for our wonderful display in the classroom.
The Year 1 children were sporting stars! They enjoyed taking part in a range of sports at The Joseph Whitaker Secondary School.
