Going, going, gone!

The hammer was boss this evening, with the hall packed with parents for our first ever school Art Auction.  Completely organised by our school council, the event saw works of art created by pupils going under the hammer with expert auctioneer Isabel working the room.  Thanks to parents for their generous bids; the children raised a staggering £250 towards their goal of new lockers.

Intrepid Engineers

Well done to our team of Year 6s who represented the school at the Royal Albert Hall this week.  As part of our Evolution project in collaboration with Rolls Royce, the children presented their designs and prototypes for moving stages, complete with working cams, levers and pulleys.  It was all inspired by the incredible Cirque de Soleil.

Safari in the top hall

KS1 were in for a treat today with a visit from a whole host of wild and wacky creatures.  There were snakes, scorpions, a chameleon and even a meerkat (it’s spelt with a k, take note!)  They got to hold, stroke and peer at the animals, and the experience has improved the quality of their writing no end!  Head over to Twitter to see the pictures.

Community Consultation

A big thank you to those parents, staff members and community friends who came to our planning consultation on Monday. We officially shared our plans for our new Science Centre and Community Room. They look amazing and we have already had lots of positive feedback. If you missed the consultation we will be leaving the boards on display in our meeting room, so come and see them!

Rock n Roll

Sycamore rocked the school on Thursday, performing to the adoring crowd of KS2 and assembled parents and friends. They showed off what they have learnt this term with our friends at the Rhythm Studio. It’s such a fantastic local resource and we are so lucky to be situated right next to such a pool of generosity and talent!

Picnic in the Sun

What a wonderful day it was on Friday, perfect conditions for a picnic in the sun! That’s exactly what children in early years did, and we invited our mothers and other special women to attend to enjoy the sun, food and good company. Thank you to everyone for providing food and coming along to our very special Mother’s Day event.

Still talking about the STEM fair

We know you loved the STEM fair last week because we have had parents telling us how great it was well into this week. The children did a fantastic job of explaining and teaching each other different concepts. We really enjoyed learning together and can’t wait to do it again. Thanks to Miss Brown for arranging it and all the classes for their hard work and effort.

Can we see what you’ve written?

Thanks to Barlby who came over to Bevington last night to talk about writing in the two schools and compare the children’s work. We have a great time discussing ways to help children in both schools learn different skills and continually improve. It was a very useful session. Thanks to Miss M for organising it.

Riveting Romans

Thanks to year 3 and 4 who put on some amazing performances this week on their topic of Romans. The singing, dancing and acting were fantastic and they looked brilliant too. Thanks as well to all the parents who came and supported them. You were a great audience!

Raising our voices

On Wednesday we hosted a showcase for the Voices Foundation who have been working with us in school this year. They saw outstanding music across the school thanks to all the hard work of Miss Faiers and Mr Byrne Smith. Singing and winning at Bevington.
