The Creative Education Trust have created a Shakespeare 7x7 festival in which all of the Secondary schools perform a Shakespearean play. The latest Weavers production was Macbeth in December in which the Drama department created an interpretation which consisted of 9 witches and an innocent Lady Macbeth. Allowing a classic play to become dark and engaging for a young modern audience. This was beautifully acted by Year 9 and 10 students at Abbeyfield School. The costumes were designed by Year 10 textiles students and added a visual impact to the performance.

A huge congratulations to the Year 10 girls’ volleyball team for finishing 3rd in the County. They qualified for the final held at the National Volleyball centre by winning the Wellingborough District tournament. Their athleticism and fantastic team work put in some excellent performances.

They eventually lost out to Campion School (who went onto win) in an epic deciding set that went to the wire.

Well done to all the girls who also have been invited to attend the regional training at the centre and further their development.

As part of our continual drive to safeguard students welfare and wellbeing we held a music PSHE workshop this week. A rising star music band came to sing for us and hold a workshop on e-safety/cyber bullying/British Values and Discrimination.  The band are called “Misunderstood”, they were brilliant, engaging and the students seemed to love them.  All in all a brilliant lesson spent gaining some valuable life skills.  A brief run down on Misunderstood is below if the students are interested.
 
Graduates from the famous BRIT School of Performing Arts, Stephan Benson and Jeffrey Okyere make up the dynamic and explosive UK Pop/R&B duo Misunderstood. Since appearing on the Britains Got Talent Semi Finals in dance group "Myztikal" the boys have have supported MOBO Award Winner "Chipmunk" and the legendary Grammy winners Boyz II Men on tour. Check out a couple of their videos below:
 
 
Many thanks

It is an expectation that students attend interventions after school in order to receive the additional support they need with difficult concepts and gaps that have been identified in their learning. Please support your child in ensuring that they attend, and if they are unable to that they collect the necessary work that will support them going forward.

  • Monday – Science
  • Tuesday – Maths
  • Wednesday – English
  • Thursday – Option subjects – business, ICT, media, history, geography, GCSE PE, BTEC sport, French, Spanish, Art, Textiles, Music
  • Friday – Option subjects – business, ICT, media, history, geography, GCSE PE, BTEC sport, French, Spanish, Art, Textiles, Music

 

Those students who are attending and doing the extra work are reaping the rewards and we want to ensure that no student is left behind in what is a life changing period of time, and it is a reminder that Hard work beats talent every day.
