Welcome to Year 6
Being in Year 6 at Abbey Gates is a special and memorable time. Mrs Jordan, Mrs Hatton, Mrs Miles and the children endeavour to work hard whilst having lots of fun along the way!
In the Autumn term our topic is 'A Child's War' and we hope the subject will inspire our future writers, mathematicians, historians, designers and geographers. As well as our work in topic we will be visiting Joseph Whitaker for sports on Wednesday afternoons. In October we will be attending a residential visit to PGL. It will be an action-packed three days where children will take part in a variety of activities such as: abseiling, climbing, fencing and the high ropes of course!
We will also be busy during the Spring Term with SATs revision and the tests in May. We are also looking forward to lots of exciting events in the Summer Term including Sports Day, the Summer Fayre, - so lots more fun on the horizon!!
Year 1 go to the Seaside!
Year 1 spent a sunny day at Mansfield-on-Sea, also known as Mansfield Museum. The sun was shining and we had lots of fun learning about the history of the seaside. We ate ice-cream and got to spend 5 pennies at the pier playing seaside games from long ago. We also got...
Visit to St. Peter’s Church
Year 1 visited the local church and found out lots of information about St. Peter. The Rev. Rattenbury also told the children about the types of events which take place in the church and then some of the children took part in a christening. We also explored the church...
Wow!! What a wonderful Nativity! The children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 really made us proud with their super singing, delightful dancing and tremendous talking. 3 cheers for the cast of 2014...
A Victorian Christmas at Newstead Abbey
We went back in time to enjoy a Victorian Christmas at Newstead Abbey. We explored the different rooms and made sugar mice in the kitchen, shadow puppets in the attic and played parlour games in The Great Hall with Mr Webb.
Fun on the Treehouse
In Year 1 we love to explore and had lots of fun on the treehouse.
Year 1 visit the library
In Year 1 we love reading so we visit the library every fortnight to choose more exciting books.
Boats that float…
We had lots of fun making boats that float. Some of the boats sank, so we had to be really clever and do some fantastic problem solving to make the boats stay on top of the water. We added masts and sails, portholes and passengers.
Today, our Mud Kitchen was officially opened. The children were very excited and have had lots of fun making mud cakes, twig salads, stone soup and leaf cakes. Their role-play, sharing, imagination and speaking and listening skills were super! A huge 'thank-you' to the PTA for funding it. Our...
Trip to Floralands
This morning, we set off from school on a big, yellow bus. When we arrived at Floralands, we had a play on the park then looked around the farm and fed the animals. After a fabulous picnic, we walked around the garden centre and chose £100 worth of flowers for...
A sad day for Foundation
Today, a funeral was held for one of our Goldfish, Sue. The children decided that they would like to put her in a box and bury her underneath a bush. The Last Post was played as she was lowered into the ground, a cross was placed where she had been...
