World Book Day 7th March

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

Today pupils and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters, with a Mr Men theme amongst staff, to celebrate World Book Day. Children were very excited to discuss their character with each other and the costumes were extremely impressive! Mr Reilly celebrated the wonderful world of books during assembly and read a story about Miss Tickle (who of course was Mrs Carney) who caused havoc tickling everyone she met. All children were congratulated and teachers selected a child in each class with a stand-out homemade costume to receive a prize. Congratulations to all staff and pupils on this happy celebration!

Emergency Services

Assemblies

Recently we have been focusing on the emergency services in our assemblies with two special guests. The first was Keith Burgin, who works for the NHS but also serves on the local Parish Council. He spoke to the children about the new defibrillator which will be situated by the shop in the village. Children now know all about its used and why it’s there.

The second was Luke from the Kent Fire and Rescue Service, explaining about how important it is to stay safe around the home. The children listened attentively and have a better understanding of how outside organisations help to improve communities and help to keep us safe. Stickers and follow up sheets are coming home today.

Football and Culture

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

Congratulations to both our Girls and Boys football teams this week as they faced Sedleys Primary at home. The girls put up a sterling performance and showed real resilience, however were not able to secure a win. The Boys managed to play as an effective unit, communicated well and showed positive sportsmanship in their 13 – 0 win. Harry S led the team in a hearty three cheers for the opposition at the end, which was a joy to see.

A diverse community

Although Bean Primary School is a village school in a rural location, it is worth pointing out and celebrating that we have 15 different nationalities from three continents represented amongst our pupils and parents. This all helps to promote our International values incorporated through Unicef as we continue to promote pupils' rights through the United Nations Rights of the Child Charter.  Your child’s class name was selected from the many countries around the world that have signed up to these values.

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.
