The hall was buzzing with life yesterday with our very first STEM fair.  From Astrophysics to Anatomy, the children had it covered.  The practical experiments on display helped demonstrate buoyancy, air resistance, filtration and much more!  An incredible event organised entirely by the children.  Thanks to parents who came along, and thank you to Miss Brown and Mr Smith for co-ordinating.

A big thank you to staff from St Saviour’s school near Warwick Avenue, who have visited Bevington over the past two weeks.  They came to see how we carry out feedback and marking in our classrooms.  It’s always a compliment to have school visit Bevington, and this was no exception.  It was a great learning experience for all, and we look forward to organising a reciprocal visit soon!

We were overwhelmed by the response to the coffee morning yesterday led by the Grenfell team. They fed back that this was the best turnout of any school they have visited so far. We are so glad that families are getting this opportunity to see what other support is available and that they are taking the time to talk. There will be two further opportunities to meet over the next fortnight and we hope more of you will come.

We all know that experiences and visits outside of school help us link and consolidate our learning. Year 3 and 4 are a great example of that this week with their visits to the Imperial War Museum. They have been able to see and touch artefacts from the Wars and spend time reflecting on the hardships and sacrifices made by the troops who served. These are the types of days from school we never forget. How fortunate we are that these are on our doorstep in London,

Year 6 worked hard to keep warm at Westway yesterday as they took part in the multi- sports competition. Judging by the rosy glow on their faces when they got back they succeeded. Thanks to all the parents and staff who wrapped up well and supported them. The children’s  manners and teamwork were brilliant as always.

Thank you to all out colleagues from local supplementary schools who joined us at our training day on Friday. They were brilliant and truly insightful. It was fantastic to have them and we hope it is the first of many opportunities to work together. Thanks to Muna and Val at the Westway Trust who put us in touch with them and who supported on the day.

Congratulations to all the children, parents and staff here at Bevington as we have been named the 11th highest state primary school by results in the country in the  Sunday Times this weekend. We are in some illustrious company and we understand what a massive honour this is. Well done on this outstanding achievement everyone.

Our art competition winners got the chance to visit the infinity room at the Victoria Miro gallery this week. A bit 70s bedroom maybe ? Either way they were dotty about what they saw !

Year 6 had a great time at the British Museum today looking at all the ancient Egyptian artefacts. They got wrapped up in the mummies and then visited Cleopatra’s Needle on the Embankment to learn all about its journey to London. We are so lucky to have all this on our doorstep !

We all learned so much at the phonics workshop this afternoon. Phonics is so important in early reading and writing we always glad to pass on the strategies and resources we use in school to benefit all. If you would like to know more and were unable to attend please see Miss Parnell for an update.
