A fair bit of STEM

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 […]

Learning from friends

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 […]

A taste of honey

The hall was full of buzzing honey bees this morning, as Willow took to the stage to give us a taste of their upcoming production, The Bee Musical.  They impressed the audience with their knowledge of queens, workers and drones, and they raised the roof with their final song.  Thanks to all family members who […]

Welcome to the Bevington Family

Juggling Balls and Diabolos

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 […]

The science of today is the technology of tomorrow

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 […]
