Digraph time

This week is phonics week, meaning our Year 1 children will be showing their amazing reading skills in our yearly phonics screen.  Do you know your trigraph from your phoneme?  If not, ask a Year 1 child who I sure will be happy to explain!

Cheeeeeese

Everyone brought their best smiles for school photos today.  The photographer completed the whole school in lightning speed and everyone looked smart and super photogenic.  Well done Bevington – can’t wait to see the finished product!

Do you know your Udon from your Katsu?

Year 6 got a taste today for all things noodle and rice related as they were let loose in the kitchens of Wagamama!  They donned their hair nets and hats and got behind the wok to try their hand at making a variety of dishes.  The portions were healthy and everyone left with full tummies.

Eid Mubarak

We would like to wish “Eid Mubarak” to all families at Bevington who are celebrating. We hope you have a lovely day with friends and families!

Chunky Chutney

A group of 8 creative chefs made their way to Sloane Square today for a masterclass in making chutney.  They worked hard to chop, dice, and cube onions and apples, before putting their cooking skills to the test.  The group will then go on to market and sell their finished products in weeks to come.

Onwards and upwards

Our new PTA held their second coffee morning today, and we would like to say a big thank you to those parents who gave up their time to discuss all things fundraising!  If you have time or expertise to offer, please get in touch with the office who will point you in the right direction.  […]
