Our new Foundation Children started Abacus Primary School.
Well done to our Pupil council who took part in a litter pick last Friday as part of Basildon Councils ‘we’re cleaning up’ campaign. They all showed enthusiasm during this event.
7 members of our Girl’s football team went on a trip to the London Stadium at the Olympic Park to watch West Ham Ladies play Tottenham Ladies in the Women’s Super League. This was a momentous occasion as it was the first time the ladies had played at this iconic stadium.

Year 4 visit Bromfords School
On Tuesday 15th October, the children in Year 4 visited Bromford’s school to take part in a Forensic Science day. The children had a great time and had the opportunity to test out a number of things including using microscopes to look at hair samples, Chromology and using Bunsen burners to test different chemicals.
It was wonderful to receive an email from Mr Caulson, Headteacher saying how well behaved the children were...well done!
Year 3 visited Hadleigh Park
What a great day Year 3 had on Tuesday 5th November at Hadleigh Park. The children took part in five activities throughout the day including an archaeological dig, pottery and Warrior school. As you can see from their comments, they had a great day!
"We were archeologists and found a skull, chain mail, pottery and an arrow head from a spear."
" We saw an Iron Age roundhouse and saw how it was different to our homes."
"At warrior school, we learnt to use Stone Age slings and Iron Age Swords and shields"
“I enjoyed fighting with fake swords & shields.”
“At our school trip, we went in the round house. We were archeologists, made pottery, went to battle and used sling shots.”
“My favourite part of the trip was learning about the things they used and how they lived life with my friends……it was great!”
St Andrews Day
On Friday 29th November 2019 the children in St Andrews house came to school dressed in Blue to celebrate St Andrews Day.
Billy (Captain) and Liam (Vice Captain led two assemblies to tell the whole school about why we celebrate St Andrews Day and the different ways in which people celebrate.
Christmas at Abacus
We were so lucky to have an Elf come and visit our school. 'Friendly Elf ' found time in her busy schedule to come and lead two assemblies. She told us all about Father Christmas and F.C. headquarters.
With the help of some of our children we managed to magic back Rudolf's nose and make snow!
Thank you for helping us support this event, we raised £315
