Year 6 Boys Back to winning ways in the football

On Friday afternoon, 11 year 6 boys attended St Thomas’ Primary School for an eagerly anticipated football match. After their recent loss to St Thomas’, the boys were keen to put in a good performance. At half time the scores were level, in what was a very tight and cagey match. But thankfully for Bevington there was a flurry of late goals to give the boys the win. Well done to all of the boys who played for their hard work, high-skill level and sportsmanship.

After hours at Bevington – The Year 5 Sleepover!

Last Friday night, Year 5 had the pleasure of spending the night at Bevington where their classrooms became their hotel rooms for the evening – although there wasn’t that much sleeping! The pupils enjoyed pizza for dinner, using the newly acquired telescope to do some star gazing, games in the dark and a film. It was a fantastic evening for all and one which we are sure everyone who attended will talk about for sometime to come.

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 a great afternoon spotting themselves in the vast exhibition and learning all about how it all came together.

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 have in our school.  Onwards and upwards!

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.

Read all about it! The Launch of the Bevington Monthly

It’s here, hot of the press, the launch of the Bevington Monthly newspaper. Miss M and a group of budding journalists have been busy putting together the first edition of the newspaper, which will now become a monthly fixture at the school. Inside the very first edition are articles about events that have been taking place at Bevington, as well as quizzes, interviews with staff and so much more. A copy of the first edition can be found below:

The Bevington Monthly – ISSUE 1

Bevington sings their heart out!

Yesterday evening, Chamber choir from Bevington went to the ‘Foundling Museum’ for an outstanding performance. We practised by warming up our voices, singing the songs we learnt and putting on one hell of an amazing show. The singing was beautiful. Everyone sung in time, singing in harmonies and had a great time. This was possible due to the Young Voices foundation.

I (Asser) have attended Chamber Choir for the last 2 years. During this time, I have performed in numerous performances. I really appreciate the time Chamber Choir has given me and I love singing as part of a collective group.

The sound of bagpipes at Bevington!

Yesterday morning, we were welcomed to school with bagpipes and what a welcome it was! As part of year 3’s topic Scotland, we couldn’t think of a better way to start our day. Despite not seeing any kilts, it felt as if we were in the highlands and the tunes were in our heads all day long! Thank you to the bagpipers and we hope it is not the last time that we all hear them.

Something exciting happened last week… my dad became a pupil! (Just for one day of course!)

On Wednesday 2nd January, year 5 opened its classroom doors to let parents come in and see what we have been learning about and give them an opportunity to take part in our exciting guided reading activities!

To start the lesson, we read a story named ‘The creation of Thor’s hammer’ together with the whole class (just like we normally do in a Mondays shared read!). Next, we moved onto a fluency task, we spoke about vocal inflection and practised this with an activity. Miss Brown then asked us to choose a paragraph to try and use our new skill of vocal inflection. It was funny listening to my dad reading with so much emotion!  Before the end of the lesson, my dad also tried out the other skills we normally practise in the week such as: find and retrieve, inference and structure/language and layout! It was fantastic being able to share my learning with my dad and I can’t wait for him to come in again this Wednesday for our maths morning!!
