As of 1st June we are running a reading competition for years 7-9 students! Three book series to reach a million words read by July. Read each book, quiz on accelerated reader and you will receive VIVOs for each book read above 80%. For those students who reach the million word mark will go into a prize draw to win Amazon vouchers.
Check out the poster for more information on the competition. This will count any of these titles you may have already quizzed on this year too.
May 8th 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2 (in Europe). There had been plans for street parties and celebrations to commemorate this event. Of course, given the current situation all of these events have been cancelled. Celebrations will now take place in August to coincide with VJ Day.
However, at Abbeyfield School we believe it is still important to celebrate this anniversary and hope that many of you will join in the celebrations, bringing the community together.
The government has launched a VE Day celebration website with the idea that we can have a ‘stay at home street party’ to mark the anniversary. To help prepare for the commemorative weekend there is a party pack to help get you started while you #StayHomeSaveLives.
The government website has lots of ideas for bunting, music , colouring pages for kids (and adults) and 1940s recipes.
Well done to team ‘Turbine Woods Ltd’ for winning 2nd prize in last year’s Enterprise Challenge with Routed and Ready. Last summer Year 8 Design Technology students all competed to create an eco-housing estate design resulting in a Dragon’s Den style final with the winning group being entered for the county-wide competition.
A big congratulations to Saniya, Amelie, Tabitha, Maisie, Alana, Isabelle and Abigail.
Thursday night saw a wonderful evening spent celebrating the success and achievement of our students in Year 7 – Year 13.
The Winter Rewards provided the chance for students and parents to spend the afternoon in the school theatre with afternoon tea, as the students received their certificates and refectory passes from the Principal.
Congratulations and well done to those nominated and the winners.
We are so sorry not to be able to welcome you in to tour our school this year. We are in the process of putting together a fantastic virtual tour which we hope to launch on 29th September at 6pm. We will keep you updated on our progress.
