Science Week

This week all year groups have had a week full of Science for British Science Week! The theme this year was having a ‘journey’. Children across the school were investigating, observing and experimenting with different journeys. The journeys have included the journey of light, the journey of sound, the journey of plastic to our oceans, the journey of electricity, the journey of weather and the journey of the digestive system. Ask your child which journey they were investigating! Science week ended with a BANG with a science assembly all about science experiments you can do at home. Please see the year group blogs and the school Facebook page for photos.



Big Sing - Choir

All the Abbey Arpeggios sung their hearts out and had a wonderful time at the Big Sing at the Derngate on Wednesday night. Well done to them all! Many thanks to all the parents/carers and friends who came along to support this inspiring event and we hope you enjoyed going down memory lane with all the songs from your youth!

Thank you to Mrs Diedhiou for all her hard work.
