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.  […]

Gongs and Metallophones

The top corridor sounded like an Indonesian temple all week as Year 6 got to grips with our new Gamelan instruments.  This musical learning supports their Rainforest topic and was made possible with a generous grant from Restore the Music.  Head over to Twitter to hear this enchanting musical tradition in action…

Start of Season

Well done to our boys football team who played their first fixture last Friday against local school, St Thomas’s.  Both teams were a credit to their schools and we are pleased to report that Bevington came away victorious.  Let’s hope it’s a sign of things to come…

The Bevington Jungle

You may have noticed our new collection of indoor plants which are sited round the school building.  Thanks to a generous donation from The Westway Trust, we have been able to liven up the school with these amazing plants.  We’re told that they’re specially selected for air purification so will hopefully help us all improve […]
