BBEY LENS January 2017 Vol 3: Issue No. Twenty six Excellence Through Partnership


1st and 2nd! Swimming triumph


On Thursday 5th January 2017 Abbey travelled to Langley swimming baths to compete in the Sandwell South Swimming Gala. Abbey entered two teams of boys and girls from years 4, 5 and 6. Pupils were competing against other local schools. The swimmers each took part in an individual race and all of our swimmers finished 1st or 2nd! Then the competition finished off with a relay and Abbey finished 1st in each of the last races. It was a fantastic display and overall, Abbey B team finished the Gala in second place, taking away silver medals. Abbey A team finished first taking home gold! Abbey A now go through to represent Sandwell in the next round, which will take place in April. Well done! Thanks to Miss Hinton for the story. BE BRAVE On Tuesday, Year One parents and carers were invited to our ‘Be Brave’ day. Lots of open-ended investigations were provided to explore cleaning coins; making parachutes; floating and sinking; investigating static electricity; making a moving rocket. a whirligig and the grand finale of a ‘cola volcano’. Children found that rubbing balloons on their jumper could quite literally be hair-raising! Our aim was to provide a memorable experience for the children and with all of the lovely, positive feedback we have had, we feel that this was achieved. A big thank you to all that were able to attend. Thanks to Miss Donnelly for the story.
