A collaboration between the science after school club, and the technology department created 3D particle models to represent solid, liquid and gas. This involved a lot of time and planning and even a few lunchtimes. The end result as seen above, can be used in future science lessons.

F1 Dance Rehersal 4ABBEY STUDENTS TO PERFORM AT THE FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX!

Students at The Abbey have been given a fantastic opportunity of performing at the Formula One, British Grand Prix. With the event being televised, the performance will not only be seen by a 10,000 person live audience, but also by the millions of viewers watching at home. On the day, the performance will take place in a performance area in the middle of the Grand Prix track, at the centre of all the on-going action.

 

During the half term, the 48 students taking part in the trip were put through their paces in a week long rehearsal process, during which they were taught the routine by the professional choreographer from the external company leading the project, ‘Pro Excel’.

 

The students were in for a bit of a shock at the beginning of the week with the rehearsal process being similar to that of semi-professionals. They were pushed to their limits and challenged in ways that they hadn’t come across before. Katia, the choreographer, had extremely high expectations and worked each and every student very hard. Although the students found this difficult to handle in the first couple of days, by day three, each and every one of them had become accustomed to it and were taking on the challenge with everything they had.

Abbey School children making friends in France and SpainAbbey School children making friends in France and Spain

Mrs Aribi has allowed our year 7Frg and 7Spg to make contacts with young French and Spanish students of their age.

 

First our contacts with Hazebrouck has been maintained over the years after a series of exchanges visits and this was renewed this year with a class of year 7 being able to write in French to students, who replied to them in English.

 

They talked about their family, home and school life following the curriculum taught in class.

 

Same was achieved by Mrs Aribi who made contact with a new school in Seville, Spain. Students exchanged letters writing in Spanish about their family, home and school life and received letters written in English from their Spanish students.
