A Muddy Walk

We went out for a walk today and had great fun running on the field, walking through the woods looking for bears and splashing in a big puddle. Luckily we had our muddy puddles on and welly boots so we could get n​ice and muddy!

People Who Help Us

09/01/18

This term in Nursery, we are learning all about 'People who Help us.' This week we have been learning  about Superheroes and what they do to help us. Someone naughty had frozen our toys in ice and we had to use our powers to try and melt it!

We have been practicing our fine motor scissor cutting skills by making our own Superheroes and cutting out 2D​ shapes.

Our role play area this term inside is a Doctors Surgery and the children have been really enjoying this. There have been lots of Doctors looking after all their patients, giving them injections, medicine and bandaging their broken arms! Outside we have a garage where the children can fix their bikes, buy some petrol and put their vehicles through a car wash! We have observed some lovely conversations through role play and the children have really enjoyed getting involved in this. 

During the term we will be learning more about Firefighters, Police Officers, Vets, Nurses, Doctors and those who help us at school. We are very lucky that on Friday we have a librarian visiting us to read a story and tell us all about what they do.

Well done to everyone on another tremendous term of PE at Beaver Green.

Beaver Green Book Fair!

06/12/17

Last week the library ran, with the invaluable help of Mrs Waller and my junior librarians, our annual Christmas book fair.  The book fair was very well attended which is fantastic as the school directly benefits from the book sales.  After consultation with the children we decided that £800 seemed a fair target amount to make. 

It is with much joy that I am proud to report that our book fair this year made a staggering £1000.20.​ I am truly amazed and was actually left speechless.  The support that you as parents, grandparents, guardians etc has been humbling and on behalf of the children, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I really hope the children enjoy their new books.

Mr Britnell, Librarian

Sportshall Athletics

27/11/17

On Thursday 23rd November we took a team of 18 children to compete in the Sportshall Athletics event at the Stour Centre. The event involves all the schools from the Ashford District and is one of the biggest events nationally.

We had a team of 9 boys and girls from years 5 and 6, with all 18 children taking part in 2 track and 2 field events, giving them the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of the hundreds in attendance.
After finishing 18th last year we were keen to break into the top 15 schools and the children didn't disappoint, performing exceptionally well to finish in the top 10 with an 8th place finish.

It was another fantastic event and the children showed their pride in representing the school with their tremendous efforts throughout day. Well done to you all!

That's it for competitions this year, but look out for news on all 4 of our competitions in January.

Beaver Green had some important visitors today!

17/11/17

Beaver Green was delighted to welcome the First Secretary of State, Damian Green MP, to the school to celebrate our recent ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement.  He was grilled by the school council who had some very tricky questions for him.  Damian gave some very good answers which we’re sure will have sparked some new political careers amongst the children! 

Damian was joined on his tour of our fantastic school by George Jessel who is the High Sheriff of Kent, Jon Whitcombe, our Trust CEO and Mike Wilson, Director of Primaries.  Beaver Green was very highly complimented and the school did a fabulous job of showing off our very best!

Remembrance Assembly

16/11/17

On Friday we, as a school, shared in the act of remembrance by having our very own Remembrance Assembly. Year 6 have just spent a term learning about the Second World War on the home front and the larger world wide conflict so we asked them to think on this within the context of remembrance and come up with some poems that could be read out in assembly. The work they produced was thought provoking and moving.

At the start of the assembly we had 3 wreaths brought down to the front of the hall and laid onto stands representing the Army, Navy and Air Force. This was then followed by 10 of our year 6 children standing in pairs to read their chosen poems out, the poems were backed onto red paper with poppies on so as each pair stood it represented the poppies that grew in the fields. The assembly was rounded off at 11 o'clock when we observed a 2 minute silence.

We would also like to thank you for all the support with the Poppy Appeal we raised a grand total of £289.98.

Flip Out!

10/11/17

On Friday a lucky group of children were taken to 'Flip Out', which is a new Trampoline Park in Ashford.  The 8 children had a fantastic time leaping around in the world of wall-to-wall trampolines, foam pits and there's even a ninja warrior course to explore!  The children were chosen because they've been identified as 'Term 1 top performers in P.E'.  This will be repeated every term with Mr Scorer choosing one boy and one girl from each KS2 year group.  To be in with a chance of being chosen for this amazing reward you need to show resilience, perseverance and excellent sportsmanship during your P.E. sessions at school.

Cressida Cowell

26/09/17

So on Thursday evening Mr Britnell went to a very special ticket only event in Canterbury to meet Cressida Cowell (famous author of the "How to Train Your Dragon" ​series). It was a wonderful event where we got to sit and talk with the author as she described her inspiration for writing, her love of magical stories as well as giving us a special preview of her brand new book, The Wizards of Once. 

Needless to say Mr Britnell had to immediately buy our school a copy as well as getting it signed by the author. Then, with temptation to much to resist, jump in and grab a quick selfie with Cressida. The Wizard of Once, coming to a bookshelf near you... soon!

Royal National Lifeboat Institution

18/09/17

On Tuesday 14th September, Gerry from the RNLI spent time with year 2 and taught us all about how to keep safe at sea. Gerry, who is a volunteer, spoke to us about the role of the RNLI and how many lives are saved at sea each year by them. We loved having Gerry visit us.
