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!!

Pancake Day - Shrove Tuesday

Over the past few days, we have been wrapping up warm, putting on our wellies and going outside to explore the snow. We know what happens to it when we hold it in our hands and we also know that it has snowed because the season is Winter. The trees...
White Post Farm
Today we went on a big bus to White Post Farm. We had to wrap up warm as it was quite cold! When we arrived, we had a quick toilet stop then went to find lots of animals! We were ever so brave in the Reptile House - some of...
Tree House Fun!
Today we trekked in the wind and the rain and still had lots of fun exploring the Tree House on the Big Field! We worked hard to climb carefully: up, over and through, keep our balance and make it to the top, which we all managed to do, hurrah!
