Well done Abhishek, Dora, Leo & Ashvini for making it through to the second round of the National Young Mathematicians’ Award 2017.

They will go on to compete on Wednesday 29th November – good luck!

Children in Need

Year 6 children are really excited about running a Children in Need fund-raising event on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th November. More detail will follow early next week but for those of you who can’t wait..

Purple class will be running a photo booth in the school hall on Thursday 16th November, where groups of friends will be invited to dress up, act silly and pose for our Year 6 photographers! A brilliantly unique idea where children will be able to take a copy of their photo home, with all donations going straight to Children in Need!

Indigo class will be inviting children to pay £2 to miss a normal lesson on Friday 17th November and instead get a ticket to the A Factor (think X Factor but with an A!!) The amazingly talented children of Abbey Primary will be invited to perform in the spotlight in the school hall, singing their favourite song to their friends and teachers. Unfortunately Simon and Louis are not available to judge but we do have a few surprise guest judges who will pass on their opinions!

All of Year 6 can not wait to see you all and would like to thank you in advance for all your help towards Children in Need.

National Young Mathematicians’ Award

Abhishek, Dora, Ashvini & Leo took part in the first round of the National Young Mathematicians’ Award, at Explore learning in North Cheam.

The children competed against 2 other schools and had to work together to solve 3 mathematical challenges.

Fingers crossed they make it through to the next round!


Junior Supremo Training

Eight Year 6 children attended Junior Supremo training where they learnt how to be PE leaders for our school. The children took part in a range of activities which taught them how to be a good leader, for example: listening, giving clear instructions and modelling activities. When we arrived back at the school the children met as a group to think about how we can implement their training into our school. The children decided to create a timetable where two children each day go to the Key Stage One playground and lead fun physical activities for the children. They then meet every Friday to discuss what they would like to do next week and review how things have gone.

Tag Rugby Megafest

A mix of Y5 and Y6 children took part in a Tag Rugby Megafest last Thursday at John Fisher’s playing fields.  They started off by taking part in a series of fun rugby based games run by the John Fisher leaders.  They then played some matches against other schools.  Well done boys and girls, your team spirit was great and you were very resilient!

Harvest Festival

Thank you so much for your kind Harvest donations.  You have been so generous!  All donations will be delivered to Sutton Food Bank during half term, they will then be delivered to Sutton families who are finding it hard to stock their cupboards.
