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.

Sporting Success

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

Ten pupils were selected this week from England and Ireland Class (Yr 1&2) to represent the school in an inter-school infant agility competition that tested their athletic and gymnastic abilities. It was the first time many of the children had competed against other schools, many much larger than Bean. Fourteen schools entered this annual event and I am delighted to report that Bean achieved first place!

The children will now progress to the Kent School Games finals representing Dartford in the summer. 

The girls football team also experienced success this week as they competed against Westgate Primary School  and came away with a 6-1 win! Congratulations to all those involved. 

To continue with our sporting theme, you may be interested to know that 52% of all our pupils took part in one of the seven after school clubs this week which includes dance, gymnastics, cricket and football. There are still places if you’d like your child to participate in one or more of these activities.
