Local class from Abbot’s Lea makes a movie!

Class Fiji from Abbot’s Lea School have decided to make a film based on the famous event ‘WW2’. It started during a class Zoom session, when a young student by the age of 14 had the idea of making a film based on World War 2.
“You could make a movie out of this,” Dylan, the one who had the idea in the first place.
The whole class were able to help out with the movie by performing as characters and narrating the story. The class started the film project in Term 4.
We will continue to update you all on the movie release date.

Talent Show

I am doing rapping in the talent show and I am really excited about it because this is the first ever thing like this I have done and I am really excited about showing every one my bars and what I can do.
Miss Loughran is in charge of running the talent show. In the audition she is picking two from each key stage to go the final. I want to get to the final but I don’t think I will. I have been practicing daily and perfecting my bars.
I enjoy spending time outside during break and lunch with troy and Jacob g and some of the students in New Zealand. We play football, play dares and discuss things that are happening outside of school. I like this time to socialise with my friends.
