MacMillan Coffee Afternoon

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

A huge thank you to everyone who joined in with our annual coffee afternoon for MacMillan Cancer Research. 

 

We were overwhelmed by the wonderfully generous donations of cake for the afternoon.  A mystery master baker created a much talked about millionaire’s shortbread. It was definitely the most enjoyed cake of the afternoon.

We were treated to piano playing from David, a ballet and violin duet from Mia and Sofia and a ukulele band from Harrison, Joshua, Jimmy and Harvey. Congratulations to all.

 

An impressive £153.90 was raised for the charity.

20.9.18

A new academic year is already underway with many new routines being established in every class. One of which, is the establishing of our new House Captains and Vice-Captains for the four Houses. In order to promote Democracy, one of the four British values integral to the school, the whole school voted for eight candidates. Having applied for the role of House Captains, the candidates then canvassed support by presenting their case during an assembly as well as visiting each classroom to explain why children should vote for them. Posters filled the corridors the week before.  All the candidates did extremely well and I am pleased to announce the results:

Normans House: Captain - Sophie, Vice-Captain - Isabelle:            Romans House: Captain - Mia, Vice-Captain - Isabelle   

Saxons House: Captain - David, Vice-Captain - Harvey      Vikings House: Captain - Sofia, Vice-Captain - Ishmeet

Summer Fayre

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

The Summer Fayre was another huge success this year! The Friends of Bean worked tirelessly, under difficult conditions, to plan and organise a wonderful Summer Fayre that many in the community enjoyed. The Worshipful Mayor and Mayoress began the proceedings by cutting the ribbon and the Gravesend Borough Training Band provided gentle concert music interspersed by our very own Matt the DJ. A huge thank you to parents and staff who generously gave up their time to ensure the day was a real success. Emily and Caprice really deserve a special mention for their tremendous commitment to this event in the run up and on the day.

Congratulations to the Year 5 singers who took part in the Darford Choral Project that brought together eight primary schools in a wonderful performance at the Orchard Theatre this evening. It was truly inspirational as the children sang in unison with hundreds of other children to old and more contemporary songs. Dancing accompanied several of the songs with a hearty effort from the parents in the final number; the children very much appreciated the support.

A truly memorable occasion!  ‚Äč

Royal Wedding Celebration

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

It was such a pleasure seeing so many parents and friends join us for our Royal Wedding celebration on Friday afternoon  18th May. The sun set off the children’s hats and fascinators spectacularly as the children paraded round the basketball court to a marching band tune. 

To relax afterwards, several games were organised and the children, parents and staff enjoyed their time together.

Royal bookmarks were given to children to mark the occasion.
