We are going to miss you over the next 6 weeks but know that everyone needs a break after all that hard work this year. We wish you a happy and safe summer holiday and can’t wait to get started all over again on the 6th September. See you soon!

Thanks to all the parents who kept the award winners in the dark about the secret assembly today. The school had been voting for weeks to choose the children who have consistently shown the best of Bevington. It would have been too hard to choose without the vote as there are so many real stars across the school. It was great to celebrate and round off what has been an outstanding year where your children have achieved so much in this way. We can’t wait to see what we can achieve next year.

We know how much you all love Maths here at Bevington, as our recent results certainly show! If you would like some resources to keep your brains boggling over the Summer Holidays, please have a read of the document below. Our Maths lead Mr Doyle has compiled a list of incredible resources you can work through with your child if you ever have a spare minute!

The leavers’ assembly had everyone reminiscing about all the good times from years gone by and we are sure we saw a few people shed the odd tear. Not surprising really as these children have been phenomenal. Their pictures from Early Years and Key stage 1 were very cute. Who could predict you’d all grow up so quickly? Guess you are ready for the next chapter now

We couldn’t finish the year without letting Sycamore and Mulberry spend some time thinking about future jobs. They have worked hard this year to make sure that their learning is on point in school and now they have been able to see what it is like to work for a living after their visit to Kidzania. To be fair that is also an awful lot of fun- just like a real job (well if you work for Bevington anyway!)

Year 6 were out and about again today making delicious Japanese food at Wagamama. They are now a dab hand with the chopsticks and ramen and no one was hungry for lunch! Thanks to Wagamama for hosting us again this year. What a tasty way to round off the year!

Seeing all of Year 6 dressed up for prom tonight really brought home how much they have grown up and how ready they are for high school with dancing skills to match. Thanks to JP for the dj-ing, all the Year 6 team and the KS2 teachers for staying and getting involved in the fun. These are the days we will remember forever.

It’s not too shabby being a Year 6 at Bevington after they have finished their SATs. They have been off to practice their bowling this morning and have shown quite a technical skill for the game! There were quite a few strikes as well as a couple of turkeys. Ah well – you can’t win them all.

Friday was an epic day at Bevington that we rounded off with our annual summer fete. We had so many donations from local businesses and individuals that we were overwhelmed. The children and the parents who came were gracious and generous with their time, taking part in everything from soak the teacher to bouncing away on the bouncy castle. Thanks to Mr Smith and the PTFA for organising it all. No idea how we are topping all this action next week.

The whole school gathered on Friday morning to watch the Really Big Pants Theatre Company perform Plundered, a story of pirates and eco friendly children. The looks on their faces were unbelievable – pure joy from nursery all the way to year 6. It was just what we needed this term and we cannot thank Diane, who bid on it as part of authors for Grenfell, enough for donating it to us. Straight after we all had our Innocent smoothies and a good old play. What a great day!
