Author Visit

Beechwood children were lucky to recieve a visit from famous author Matt Brown, former radio presenter and published author of the following Titles: Compton Valence series was in school to share his love for reading and writing and to inspire children to read more. He also shared some really useful tips with the children on how to develop characters and ideas for their own stories. Here are some of what the children thought about the author visit.

 

Matt Brown inspired me by making his books really funny and now I actually want to read some of his books

Matt Brown has inspired me to start writing.

I think having an author visit our school has really helped and inspired us to start reading and writing more.

I really like Mats Browns idea of creating names for his characters by using names of different roads and villages.

I like Matt Brown because his books are really funny.

Sport Relief Week 2018

As part of raising money for Sport Relief, children had the opportunity to take part in sporting activities throughout the week. Part of the week allowed children to run Beechwood Miles and have their Beechwood Passports stamped for each mile. 

Children have showed great enthusiasm and really worked hard to run as much as they can. The class that collects the most stamps in the week will win a prize. 

Children can come in non uniform on Friday 23rd March for a donation of £1.

Families First Quality Award

We are delighted to have been awarded the Families First Quality Award in recognition of the quality of our work with families.

The award has been given to us by the Family and Childcare Trust through the National Association of Family Information Services.

The award is designed to help schools demonstrate how they keep families at the heart of their practice and support children throughout their education.  It recognises work with partners such as the Families Information Service to help families access a range of information, advice and support.

Our assessor Tim Swithenbank said: ‘The Beechwood Primary staff and families have shown a clear commitment to the accreditation process.  The welcome for families has been extended to a personal approach including home visits and effective use of local providers to facilitate support that is holistic and bespoke in its planning. The development of communication methods has been installed to enable all families to engage fully with the school. This has conveyed the success of the pupils and the aspirations for the school effectively. The pupils were a positive and visible part of the running of the school with school councils and elections held to recognise the skills and qualities that I had the pleasure to see on my visits.  Well done to you all.’

Congratulations and thank you to all staff involved in achieving this award with particular thanks to Jo Hintz and Emma Mellett from the Family Worker team for collating and uploading all the evidence.
