The Summer Fayre 15th June 2019

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

Saturday saw our annual summer fair which will have raise a considerable amount of money to enrich and replenish valuable resources for our pupils' learning; the total will be confirmed in the next few days.

It is always satisfying, not only seeing the school community, but the village community coming together on these occasions. Many ex-pupils returned and were keen to tell of their achievements and successes. One such individual was Dot. She now has grandchildren that attend the school. She informed me that she attended Bean Primary went it met in the house on the corner, before the existing building was built in 1966. This was a wonderful incidental conversation that reminded me of the important role we have in developing our pupils and working together to enrich the local community.

Finally, I must say a huge thank you to all who volunteered to make the day such a successful one. Yet again, the Friends of Bean, who organised the day, did a wonderful job. The planning was started back in November.  At 9am, parents, teachers and children rolled up their sleeves and ensured things were in place before the opening. Kayden had the honour of opening the fair, which he did wonderfully. Thank you to all who supported this event.

Walk to School Week

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

There is a growing response to our ‘walking bus’ that has been organised this week in promotion of Walk to School Week 2019. Approximately 40 children and several adults joined staff in their daily exercise this morning as they walked from the Black Horse car park to school. Children are being encouraged to walk via class surveys and whole school assemblies. If you’d like to join us, please arrive at 8:15 for an 8:20 start. Of course, walking from your own home counts too. Many thanks to Mrs Carney and Miss Lorimer for organising this.

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

On Wednesday, our Rights Respecting Ambassadors and several volunteers decided to clean up our local area and join in with the Great British Spring Clean. The Ambassadors presented their ideas in assembly, designed a presentation and poster, and took volunteers’ names to organise this event. Well done to all those involved. The huge pile of rubbish bagged in front of the school testifies to their hard work.

Farmer Dell

admin on: Mr Reilly's Blog

Our Reception class have been busy learning about growing vegetables this term. They have planted beans, peeled carrots and learnt what equipment is needed to harvest.  The children were very excited when Bean resident Paul Dell offered to bring his tractor along to school for the children to see.

Having named Paul ‘Farmer Dell’ the children asked lots of interesting questions and Paul shared his wealth of knowledge with the children.
