Dear Year 6,
It looks like the end of the year has come around a little quicker than anticipated by any of us! At the moment, we are all isolating in our homes, which means that we might not be back in school before the end of the year. It was definitely not the end of the year that we had planned, but if this year has taught us anything, it is that plans can change in the blink of an eye! We have had such a great year with you, getting to know you and watch you develop into the children that you are now; children that are ready for the next stage of their education. For those that were able to come on camp, we loved the chance to watch you facing challenges and working together to make it a really memorable experience for us all. For those of you that didn't come on camp, we missed you and were very much looking forward to seeing you again when we returned. Whether you were able to come on camp or not, we have been proud of each and every one of you, for the way you have made new friendships, faced the challenge of online learning again, and the way you returned to school with such a positive attitude. You have been a fantastic year group and we will not forget you.
As things stand, we will not be able to say goodby face to face but we want you to know how proud we are of you and your achievements and that we have loved getting to know you. Good luck for Year 7! We know you have the skills needed for the next stage of your adventure. We will keep an eye out for you on your way past school in September so please give us a wave and say hello!
We are still available for you on our emails so please do contact us, as we would love to hear from you.
Take care you lovely bunch!
Mrs Simpson, Mrs Foord, Miss Goodman, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Taylor.
Wednesday 14th July
Our last day has dawned with bright blue skies! This morning we are developing our survival skills and abseiling, before returning home tired and happy with masses of incredible memories.
Tuesday 13th July
We are having a great time and have another packed day with a range of exciting activities lined up: climbing, the vertical challenge, buggy building and archery.
After a jam-packed day, we are finishing off round the campfire before a well deserved sleep! We have so much to tell you when we get back!
Monday 12th July -afternoon
Monday 12th July-morning
Despite the drizzle, we are having an amazing time. We have been on the zip wire, canoeing, obstacle course and the giant swing.
We have been fed, played some games and are now watching the football in our class groups.
Everyone is happy and settled into their groups and rooms.
Check back here for photos of our adventures. We will regularly post them here, as often as we can.
Welcome to Term 6!
We hope you have all had a wonderful half term break, the weather was great so we hope you managed to get out and enjoy it. We are looking forward to hearing what you have all been up to and hope that the sunny, warmer weather continues!

Year 6 SATS 2021 - 6th January
To the pupils in Year 6,
As you may have heard, the government has decided today to cancel the SATs for Year 6 this year.
I know many of you will have mixed feelings about this, and that’s completely ok. I just want to assure you that the wonderful Year 6 staff will most definitely continue to provide you with the best possible teaching and learning, as they do every year for your year group. They will continue to challenge and engage you and help you to reach your full potential in every subject. At the end of the summer you be able to share your terrific work with your families and we can tell your Year 7 teachers about the amazing learning and progress you have shown in your time at Ashton Gate.
