Abbey Primary Sports Day

Sports Day 2018

Dear Parents,

This year’s Sports Day is on Thursday 14th June and is an inter-sports group competition for years 1-6. The children will compete in their usual sports groups (Ennis-Hill, Farah, Weir and Simmonds)

Year 3 and 4 will compete between 8.45 and 10.15am.

Year 5 and 6 will compete between 10.30 and 12.00pm

Year 1 and 2 will compete between 1.15 and 2.45pm

All the children will compete in a series of sports activities around the outside of the field; they will then compete in a traditional flat running race.

Your child will need to wear their normal outdoor PE kit (t-shirt, shorts and trainers). They will also need to bring a water bottle, sun hat and be wearing sun tan lotion (weather dependent!).

Parents are most welcome to come and support the children in the roped off area whilst they are competing. We look forward to seeing you at another exciting Sports Day!

Kind regards,

The Abbey Primary teachers

Year 3/4 Mini Tennis

Yesterday 4 children took part in a mini tennis competition at Purley Sports Club, competing against teams from other schools. They all showed excellent sportsmanship and determination in their matches. Everyone in the team managed to win a match and as a team they won 3 out 4 individual matches in the final round!


Keep up the great effort on Walking to School!

Think about it!

This month we asked, ‘What is the most important lesson to learn as a child?’  We had lots of great answers, but our favourites were from Hasi – ‘Responsibility, determination, learning what’s right and knowing that you are amazing!’, Zuzanna – ‘How much your family cares about you’, Erin – ‘Do the things you love and you’ll get far in life’, Rose – ‘All about making friends’, Kelly – ‘Always go to school to learn’, Aimee – ‘To be educated and be responsible’ and ‘Enjoy being a child, don’t grow up too fast!’ from Anonymous.

No one guessed the mystery object – it was a cup and saucer.

Walk to School Month

Well done to all those children who participated in the Walk to School Month for March! You have earned your walking to school badges!

Stay tuned for more walk to school months taking place!

Walk to School Month!

Abbey Primary is participating in Walk to School Month for March! Children are keeping track of which days they walk, scooter, or park and stride (5 minutes) to school on their wall charts in their classrooms! This month is to encourage children  to enjoy the benefits of exercise in the morning by walking to school! Prizes will be given to those who have done this at least once a week.
