Picture on the wall

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 […]

Unity in action

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 […]

Friends everywhere

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…

Trains and buses

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.

Relaxing with a book

It was great to see so many parents and children making use of our Reading Cafe today.  Groups of enthusiastic readers arrived at the library after school, ready to relax in the tepee or sofas with a book and a biscuit.  Thanks to parents for you encouraging your children to become passionate readers.  See you […]

Sweet Teeth

A big thank you to our catering providers, AIP, who visited a number of classes today and taught them all about the risks of a sugary diet.  Our school nutritionist Amy discussed the dangers of a sweet tooth and the ways the children can lead a healthy lifestyle.

Rainforest Life

Year 6 braced the cold today and found sweet relief in the tropical glasshouses of Kew Gardens.  Supporting their learning on Rainforests, the children explored the many botanical delights that the world-famous gardens have to offer.  After a morning in the glasshouses, they explored the children’s garden and badger set.  What an exhausting but worthwhile […]

Little House of Science

Pupils from across our science partnership came together today to learn all about Forces with the amazing Little House of Science.  It has been great to meet children from other year 5 classes and who knows… maybe the next supersonic flight engineer is among us!

Do Re Mi

We are very lucky to be working with the wonderful Voices Foundation again this year, and the staff and pupils have been getting to grips with rhythm, pitch and intonation over the past term.  Singing is such a powerful tool and helps pupils with not only music, but confidence, development of language and phonetical awareness.  […]
