Good Afternoon everyone! The Year 3 Team have loved seeing all of your children's quizzes this week - please keep posting them and our teachers will respond.

At Abbotswood, we are very lucky to have an incredibly active PTA: The Friends of Abbotswood - here is some information on how to join them and also on a second hand uniform sale that they will be conducting over the next two weeks. This link will take you through the the Friends of Abbotswood's web page where you will find a link to Stikins: https://www.abbotswood.hants.sch.uk/friends-of-abbotswood

Keep an eye on this page early next week: each of our teachers have recorded their class a special video!

Have a brilliant weekend!

Monday 13th July 

It was fantastic to see so many of you at the welcome pack giveaway. If you didn’t get the chance to attend, we will be hosting another session next Thursday (16th) between 1.30 and 2.30pm.

Two of our current Year 3 children (Jack and Bea) have each written a welcome letter to the Year 2 children. They both placed a lot of effort into their work so we hope you enjoy them!

Monday 20th July 

Good morning! Normally at this time of the year, we would host a parent information evening for our new Year 3 parents and carers. In light of this year's events, we have instead created this presentation in order to provide some general information about the school. We hope you find it useful.

Sunday August 30th

Good Morning! Here is a video that we created last week for our new Year 3s to watch in preparation for their arrival this Thursday. It tells them what to do at the start and end of the day and gives them a sneak preview into their new classrooms!

The video was originally posted for Facebook and asks, if they have any questions, please post them in the comments section below and we will answer them. If you don't use Facebook you can email [email protected] We can’t wait to meet them all on Thursday!
