We had a very spooky singing assembly today as we have been thinking about Halloween. The children in Key Stage 2 had a great time singing along and getting in the spirit of the day. This is what we love about our children- they participate in everything with really good spirits and they can see the humour in all situations! Thanks to Mrs Flynn for starting off the day with these high jinx. And did you spot the unicorn this morning too??

Please look out for your letters tonight so that you can book a slot with each of your children’s teachers. We have changed the format slightly this year and would like you to bring your child to the meeting so they can discuss with you and their teacher their targets and learning so far. This will mean everyone is very clear about next steps and can get on with working towards their targets even quicker!

Please look out for the information email that was sent this morning to all parents and carers. We are looking for 2 new governors and would like to meet interested candidates to discuss the role. If you would like to know more please call the school office and we will arrange you an appointment with the Head and the Chair of Governors.

Well done to all our netballers who are so far unbeaten in all of their matches this term. They are great examples of team work and perseverance. Thanks to Mr Taghi for training them all and fingers crossed for next half term. We should go from strength to strength!

You know how much we love learning at Bevington so we were really glad when Sion Manning offered our Year 6 children the chance for some extra classes over half term. They all jumped at the chance and we really value the support we get from the team there.

Thank you to Mrs Dodd and her sister who came in and made the most delicious food with the children in Year 3 and 4. They all got great platefuls of homemade delicacies which were tasty and healthy  with lots of lovely green veg to help with our 5 a day. The teachers all got lots to eat as well which we always view as a bonus! What a lovely end to our term.

Needles, threads and fabrics have been flying all round the top corridor this week as the children get to grips with topic-related textiles projects.  In Year 6, pupils are making toys for younger children, having conducted market research, designed prototypes, and selected fabrics and materials.  While in Year 5, pupils are busy https://handsfreehealth.com/hfhealth/buy-viagra-online/ designing space suits for their teddies!  They are using their knowledge of space, gravity and atmospheric pressure to consider the design criteria needed for their products.  Can’t wait to see the finished articles!

The smell of coriander was wafting through the school corridors this morning during Cherry’s class assembly all about Diwali.  We learnt all about the story of Rama and Sita as well as all the present-giving traditions of the festival.  Thanks to all the parents who came, and thank you to Miss Cass and her Busy Bees who cooked up a feast of delicious samosas for parents to enjoy at the end of the assembly.

Well actually Year 6 have been to London Zoo and have had an amazing, if slightly damp, day exploring the habitats and habits of rainforest animals as part of their topic. They all had different favourites and learnt about the challenges they face in the wild. The animals were having a lovely day despite the weather. They are from the rainforest so they don’t mind the rain!

Year 5 had a truly tasty afternoon this week eating space food! As we know astronauts have special food when they are aboard the International Space Station so we wanted to enjoy the authentic experience of interstellar fine dining for ourselves! The big hit of the afternoon was the Neapolitan ice cream – one more great reason to get ourselves enrolled on future space programs!
