Early Years were most accomplished performers this afternoon in their production of Whoopsy- Daisy Angel. They spoke clearly and sung beautifully in front of a big audience of family and friends and they were super confident throughout. They are just beginning at Bevington and already they are excelling. We are so excited for the future with them. And it is also worth mentioning that they are incredibly cute as well! Merry Christmas Early Years!
We had a really good time this morning watching the pantomime Aladdin as part of our festivities. We got in lots of audience participation and are little bit croaky now from all that booing of the villains. We love a good drama at Bevington!
Congratulations to Diego on Year 6 who has been accepted into the National Children’s Orchestra. He will be playing the flute in the Under-11s orchestra over the coming year, which is a truly outstanding achievement – it is equivalent to representing the country on a national sports team. It means that Diego is one of the top six or seven 10-year-old flautists in the whole of the UK! This is particularly remarkable because Diego only began playing the flute in February – so when he auditioned in October, he had only about eight months of playing under his belt! We can’t stop smiling at this news. Brilliant job Diego!
When you go under the railway bridge make sure you look up as the banner that is on there is one that was designed by our own Mohamed in Year 6, originally as one of the #24hearts pictures that we completed in November. The organisers were so impressed by his design out of all of those the collected from local schools that they asked his permission to put it up there for everyone to see in full and of course he said yes! It sits right next to our lamppost banner with the work of lots of Bevington’s children on it. Their designs are inspiring and moving so make sure you have a look when you go past.
Congratulations to our superstar team who came third in the borough championships this week. They are such a good team who work hard and support each other we are not at all surprised! And well done to Makayla who won a special award for sportsmanship. She showed all our values and more. Excellent job! And thanks to Mr Taghi who has worked equally hard getting them into the best shape ever.
We had a wonderful Christmas lunch today courtesy of Victoria and the team in the kitchen. The crackers were popping all over the hall and the Christmas songs and live music was provided by Mr Byrne- Smith and Mrs Flynn at the piano. All that singing makes us feel warm and fuzzy all over. What a lovely day !
Busy Bees plus invited guests were rocking out to all the tunes this week as they had their annual Christmas party. They had a chance to hone their competitive skills in musical statues and pass the parcel and to dance up a storm with their glow-sticks and balloons. Quite the place to be!
After many weeks of searching Year 5 finally found Nemo tonight in their fantastic end of topic production. We have never seen costumes so superb and the acting, animation and comic timing were brilliant! Thanks to parents who came and who helped with the homework! It lifted the whole show to another level.
Year 3 and 4 got fully into the spirit of Tudor times today with their Tudor banquet this afternoon. Henry the 8th turned up to ensure the proceedings went with a swing. Now there is a man who likes to party!
The art room was buzzing yesterday to the sound of year 6 making their ancient Egyptian shadufs (shadoofs?). The saws and glue guns were in full effect making these historical irrigation devices. After the hard week year 6 have had smashing their end of term assessments they were thoroughly enjoying themselves doing something practical and creative. They look amazing as well!
