Science Day in Reception 

We loved watching the fantastic Dr Bridge demonstrate some incredible scientific experiments. We learnt all about microwaves and saw what sound waves looked like on an oscilloscope. Miss Watson even got a new hairdo from the electrostatic machine. 

In the afternoon we tried 3 of our own experiments that you can try at home.

The milk and washing up liquid experiment

The Cornflakes and magnets experiment  


The static baloon experiment 

Y4 Tri-Golf Finals Day 

Last Friday , Y4 went to Oaklands College for the Sports Partnership County Finals. We had beaten 20 school teams from the local and partnership finals to get there. A massive achievement in the first place!! Well done Maya, Marli, Mia, Alice, Zoe, Aidan, Austin, Charlie, Jon and Max! 

We were super excited and nervous to take part, there were 9 other teams, who had all beaten 20 school teams as well, all competing for the Tri – Golf Trophy! We had a lovely day and worked really hard in the first half ……. so well that we were in the lead! 


So we were very excited and more nervous….. even the adults! We played as hard as we could congratulating each other at every shot. The scorers were so impressed with us they gave us a Team work baton! We were very proud. 


We continued to play well and enjoyed the sunshine as we were playing.


Once it was over we needed to wait half an hour while they counted the scores. It felt a long time.  We had tried our very best and worked extremely hard. 

Out of the 9 teams, we came 3rd!! WE CAME 3rd!! AMAZING! Well done Y4 tri – golf team. We are very proud. We will display the teamwork baton and certificate on the sports board in September! 

Trip to Paradise Wildlife Park

The children and staff had a wonderful time on our trip to the zoo this week. The children made us all so proud with thier excellent behaviour and brilliant knowledge about animals and dinosaurs! Also a big thank you to our wonderful parent helpers and to everyone who volunteered. 

Super behaviour from Reception!

Reception were very enthusiastic about going to watch ‘Tanners Wood’s got Talent’ this morning. They enjoyed watching the acts and were all very proud of a certain young man from Beech who confidently performed his magic act to the whole school! Their impeccable  behaviour was commented on by lots of staff so well done to all. This afternoon Reception were treated to a fabulous performance of ‘The Jungle Book’. Once again lots of fun was had by all and all of Reception watched very sensibly.
