Year 4 had an amazing day at the Tate today, seeing the famous McQueen exhibition now on display.  There are photographs of all year 3 classes from around London, and we are privileged that Bevington has two spots on the wall of fame!  The year 4s (because they were the year 3 children photographed) had a great afternoon spotting themselves in the vast exhibition and learning all about how it all came together.

Thanks to all parents, carers and families who attended our parents evening this week.  We had record attendance and it was amazing to see how committed our families are to the cause of ensuring our young people get the best start in life.  It was a humbling experience to discuss what incredible young people we have in our school.  Onwards and upwards!

What a lovely afternoon!  Children from around the school assembled into small mixed-age groups and spread around the school to complete friendship activities with an adult.  On offer was soft play, valentines crafts and lots of cooking… to name only a few!  We can’t wait for the next one…

Year 1 had a fantastic time at the London Transport Museum today.  To tie in with their topic, they looked at how transport has changed over the last few centuries.  They were amazed to see how the tubes have changed, and loved having a go at driving a train for themselves.

It’s here, hot of the press, the launch of the Bevington Monthly newspaper. Miss M and a group of budding journalists have been busy putting together the first edition of the newspaper, which will now become a monthly fixture at the school. Inside the very first edition are articles about events that have been taking place at Bevington, as well as quizzes, interviews with staff and so much more. A copy of the first edition can be found below:

The Bevington Monthly – ISSUE 1

Just joking……

We were only dressed up as terrifying, raiding Vikings for Viking day!

On Tuesday 28th January, Year 5 were lucky enough to have a Viking expert (Bjorn the Skull-Splitter) come in for the day to teach us about all aspects of Viking life… Even what they used as a toilet!! Yuck! In addition, we wrote our own names in old Norse, created our own Viking nicknames and we decided upon our own jobs for the day! It was truly exciting! Later in the day, we played entertaining games such as stick wrestling and many more… We even saw what needy people (thralls) ate and even what the wealthy people (jarls) ate. THERE WAS A HUGE DIFFERENCE! By the end of the day, I felt like I was a Viking fighting in real deadly battles, as we had to follow commands that they would have used in the Viking armies…

Well at least we will be ready if the Vikings invaded Bevington tomorrow!!

Yesterday evening, Chamber choir from Bevington went to the ‘Foundling Museum’ for an outstanding performance. We practised by warming up our voices, singing the songs we learnt and putting on one hell of an amazing show. The singing was beautiful. Everyone sung in time, singing in harmonies and had a great time. This was possible due to the Young Voices foundation.

I (Asser) have attended Chamber Choir for the last 2 years. During this time, I have performed in numerous performances. I really appreciate the time Chamber Choir has given me and I love singing as part of a collective group.
