Star performers

Early Years were amazing this afternoon in their nativity. They twinkled away like the little stars that they are! Well done to all of them and thanks to the parents who came along and seemed to enjoy the show very much.

It’s hard knock life

The Victorians came to school yesterday and year 1 and 2 got a real taste of the hard life. The children looked fantastic in some really authentic home made costumes and the turnout of parents for their presentation was outstanding. Thanks to all who came- the children were so happy to have you there so […]

The Vikings are coming !

Miss M and Miss Sunderland led the Viking charge today and Year 5 looked amazing! They were fierce and fabulous warriors as always with their extraordinary beards. Grrr!

All business at Barlby

Thanks to Barlby for inviting us over to do some writing moderation on Tuesday. We love sharing good ideas and strategies in writing with our colleagues nearby. We always learn so much from them. We also like having the chance to wish them a happy holidays when they come. Enjoy the biscuits!

Happy when it rains

What a lovely downpour we had yesterday. Year 5 swam off to swimming and everyone else had a great time indoors at wet play – no such thing as bad weather at Bevington. Just opportunities for a different kind of fun.  

singing in the season

The choir visited the Town Hall on Friday for rehearsals for the RBKC carol concert and they made beautiful music! It was am impressive sight as 400 or more children sang together and raised the roof. The performance is on the 14th and we know they will be fabulous. Making us proud as always.

Working together

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 […]

Consolidating learning

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 […]


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.

Supplementing our training

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 […]
