Year 5 had s great time at Imperial College today learning about cutting edge science and technology. They were inspired to think more  about careers in the sciences  and about the power and satisfaction that comes from being someone who is a ‘maker’. Hands on learning- yes please !

As part of our English curriculum Sycamore class paid their respects to William Shakespeare in their class assembly. They showed their acting skills with excerpts from some iconic plays and showed their values of positivity,humour and respect when approaching the source material. We think that Shakespeare would approve.

The question for the year 4 children who are working hard to make their own chutney as part of the Schools to Market initiative is what flavours to make it! So many tangy and moreish choices! We can’t wait to get a taste of the finished product- delicious!

Well done to all the children who took part in the quad athletics competition today at Holland Park. They all did brilliantly, with many improving on previous personal bests and they were, of course, brilliantly behaved as always. Excellent work Team Bevington and thanks to Mr Dasso for organising this great day out.

Year 4 had a lovely day today at Lords watching the cricket and soaking up the atmosphere at this amazing venue. They were very lucky to have this opportunity to visit a world class sporting arena and they certainly made the most of it. Have a look on Twitter to see all the picture!

All of our classes were working incredibly hard today (as always) because they had reminded themselves this morning in assembly about the best ways to take responsibility for their own learning. We are so very lucky to have such wise and mature young people at Bevington- what a credit they are to all of us!

As we approach the first anniversary of Grenfell, we realise that many families will find this period difficult, particularly those who were directly affected by this tragic event. As a school we will be having an afternoon session to share with you how we plan to mark this occasion and involve the school community in remembering Grenfell.

Please come and join us on MONDAY the 30th April from 1.30 pm to 3pm in the hall.

Please contact the school if you will be attending so we can ensure we have enough seating and refreshments for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you.

We had acrobats, flying juggling balls and spinning diabolos in the top hall this afternoon, as Albert and Friends came to join us for the first of their circus workshops.  They are working with a group of children who are accessing the workshop thanks to the West London Zone.  Soon we’ll be able to set up a big top in the playground and start charging for performances, watch out parents!

This evening our staff spent time in our new Science lab, sharing good practice in STEM and exploring hands-on activities to get the scientific brain waves buzzing!  Our focus was investigative learning, and we looked at science books and ways of recording information, as well as investigations that we can use with children in our younger classes.  It’s good to know that the children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 will start Bevington with a flying scientific start!

Huge congratulations to Diego in Year 6 who has just heard that he has passed his Grade 5 flute exam with a distinction!  Diego scored 135 marks out of 150 which is an incredible score and sets him in good stead for the future.  You may remember that Diego recently won a place in the National Children’s Orchestra, so this is yet another musical feather in his cap!
