Welcome to

Beechwood Primary School

 

We place a firm emphasis on the importance of nurturing our children towards becoming confident, responsible, sociable, well-rounded individuals, ready for life in high school and as young adults in our community.

As you explore our website, we hope that you find this ethos reflected and enjoy the many different aspects our pupils' daily experience at Beechwood.

Head teacher for a day

As part of our fund raising effort for Keech Hospice Care, we ran a raffle for children to be picked to be head, deputy or assistant headteacher for the day. 

The winners of the competition were:

Headteacher - Miss A Khan

Deputy Headteacher- Mr S Otu Wudaah

Assistant Headteacher- Mr N Shah

Assistant Headteacher- Miss M Fatima

These children formed a mini leaders team that led the school on Friday 24th May 2024.

Starting the Day Early

We had to come to school before any of the children and even before some teachers. 

To start the day, we worked in the office answering phones, opening the barrier and doors, preparing house points and certificates for assembly, checking in late children and recording absences. 

Next, we stood at the school gate and said, 'Good morning.' to all the parents and Beechwood pupils. 

 

Checking on Learning

After the registers, we visited every class in the school to see what the children were learning. 

We focused on checking children's behaviour, the learning environment and the resources. All the children were very well behaved. We were super impressed with the behaviour of Bluebell children and reception.

Our favourite class to visit was Fir class where we held chicks that Mrs Begum is adopting.  

Assemblies

We led the assemblies for all the year groups and took the jobs away from the house captains. 

Unfortunately, the fire alarm went off in the Year 1, 2 and Reception assembly. All the children behaved really well. 

Just for today, we made up a new rule and explained this to the children in assembly. The new rule was that the children had to bow when they saw us. As a reward, we would decide if the classes deserved 5 minutes extra goldentime. 

 

Leadership meeting

After assembly, we had a meeting with Mr Sherwin-Peddie, Mrs Stanton and Mrs Breen-Smith. To help fuel us for the day, we had tea, hot chocolate, mango juice, cupcakes and biscuits. 

 

 

Lunchtime

We enjoyed blowing the whistles and telling the children what to do. 

In Reception and KS1, we helped to serve the desserts and offered salad. 

In KS2, we were on ketchup duty and answered a lot of questions. 

Art Book Session

To see how the learning in art is doing across the school, we collected art books from all year groups. 

The children put in lots of effort in their art lessons and used lots of different media. We were amazed!

 

Website Update

With Mrs Breen-Smith and Mrs Stanton, we reviewed the day and updated the school website. 

End of Day Reading

At the end of the day, we each went to a Year 1 classroom and led the end of day reading.

Message from the Mini Leaders

Our day was very tiring. We really enjoyed being a leader of the school and discovered how hard it is to be a teacher. The senior leaders do a lot of steps everyday. 

The children were super and we think that Beechwood Primary School is amazing. 

Message from the Senior Leadership team

The headteacher for a day winners were very good and led the school well. We are nervous about the competition we now have for our jobs! 

The school community was very impressed with how hard the mini leadership team worked and the wonderful praise that the mini leaders have given.

Stop Motion Workshop

Some of our children took part in a stop motion animation workshop after school. The children worked in groups of 4 to create their own short stop motion animation. They had just 2 hours to create all the backgrounds, tools, characters and resources that they needed and create their film. Below are the amazing animations from each group. Children from Year 1 to Year 6 took part. Mrs Breen-Smith and Mr Tobias were very impressed with all the films and the hard work of all the children.

World Book Day

Children across the school had a wonderful time during World Book Day in March and explored many of their favourite books. 

Year 4 Performance- Alice in Wonderland

Children in Year 4 put on a wonderful performance of Alice in Wonderland this half term. Children practised their lines and developed their drama skills. Parents and children enjoyed the show. Well done Year 4. Thank you to all the school staff who helped the children to put on such an amazing performance.

The Family Worker Team work closely with Luton Foodbank to support vulnerable families. Foodbank have collaborated with Discover Islam and Islamic Relief, and offered Ramadan packs.

These packs aimed to support families during the holy month of Ramadan, especially during these challenging times.

We made sure our vulnerable families from all backgrounds were supported.

 

The food pack included rice, oil, (atta) flour, gram flour, plain flour, self-raising flour, porridge, eggs, chickpeas tin, lentils, tin tomatoes and tuna.

 

Our team collected the packs from Discover Islam and distributed them to families in need.

 

Feedback from one of our parents,

“Thank you so much, this is wonderful support and I really appreciate it.”

 The theme for Black History Month this year was 'Saluting our Sisters'. Year 2 created posters to share information about Black and Mixed Heritage British women who have shaped history and shared their achievements and accomplishments.

Take One Picture Art Gallery

All children across the school took part in the Take One Picture project at school. The picture that was the focus this year was 'Surprise' by Henri Rousseau. All year groups took ideas from the original picture and created their own original piece of art. All the art from across the school was displayed in our art gallery. The work looked AMAZING! Well done everyone. 

Summer Fair

Thank you to all our families who helped to make our summer fair so successful. 

House Day

For the last day of the half term, children were invited to come to school dressed in their house colours. We were raising money for Chums Shine Bright appeal. 

Children all sat in their own houses for lunch and completed activities in the afternoon. 
Our house captains from Year 6 led activities and led an assembly for the pupils in their house. It was a great day enjoyed by all.

On the last day of the Spring term, Beechwood Primary celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. The children from Reception to Year 6 all gathered on the field. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed watching a performance from each year group. After the performances, the children had a small tea party on the field with juice, cakes, crisps and biscuits. 

Everyone in the school contributed to our Jubilee art gallery and the children loved seeing art from the different year groups. 

To inspire and engage future generations, the children all contributed to our Beechwood time capsule which will be burried on the school grounds for future Beechwood children to discover.
