Welcome to the Autumn 2 half term. There's a lot going on at Abbotswood today! The first day of term always means 'Hook Day' and that's when the staff get the children engaged and enthusiastic about their new topics.
Year 3 are off to Totton for the start of their Home and Away topic and what a lovely morning it is to explore their local area. We are grateful to the volunteer parents who have joined us to help supervise the children on their trip.
Year 4 are diving headfirst into the Titanic story, we are very impressed with the wonderful outfits that many of the children are wearing and we're sure that you'll agree that Mr Humphries and Miss Hyde look rather dashing in their captain costumes.
Year 5 will be entering the world of Space and going inside the mobile planetarium, which takes the children on a tour of the solar system and beyond, providing incredible 360 degree panoramas of space.
Year 6 will join Perseus as he begins his perilous journey, which takes him far from home to the land of the hideous Gorgons, where he must use his cunning to defeat Medusa. In this original version of a Greek myth, the children will learn about many aspects of life in Ancient Greece. This interactive play blends action and discussion to fully immerse the audience in the story. It will be an excellent way to introduce children to their new topic and allow them to engage with this historical period.
We are also delighted to see the completed Gazebo's in place, providing shelter in place of the trees that we needed to remove in the Summer Term. Thank you to the Friends of Abbotswood
for funding this project. We think they look great!
