Spelling Bee

Beechfield’s first Spelling Bee competition was a great success for our KS2 students.  Week after week students learned new and difficult words.   The winners were Terrell (Y3), Shahzain (Y4), Danyal (Y5) and Lani (Y6).  There was also a weekly ‘most improved’ speller award for each class.  Thank you to Mrs Orford and Ms Ali for organising and hosting the event.  We are looking forward to next year’s competition.

Celebrating the Royal Wedding

On Friday 18th May, friends and family were invited to join our celebrations at a Family Picnic.  Everyone enjoyed the sunshine and bouncy castles and Cake Off competition.


On Friday 10th November, to mark Remembrance, the whole school became evacuees for the day.

Show Racism the Red Card

On Friday 20th October 2017, we joined many schools across the country in wearing red in support of Show Racism the Red Card charity.  We will be holding a fundraising event later in the year where money raised will be donated to them.

Eid Learning Day

Science Week

Year 5 and Reception had a great time constructing fidget spinners together inside and outside-our last Science Week activity!


For Science Week the children in RD brought in their fidget spinners from home. We made a tally chart of our predictions to see which one would spin for the longest time using a sand timer.

We had lots of fun!

Reception also investigated large cable drums –

“Let’s see how far it goes!” Hyllton

Vicky used her foot to keep it moving!

Kobby and Cleverley attached a rope to them and tried hoisting them along!

Year 6 have been looking at the density of different liquids and how they layer. They then looked at what happened when they added different substances such as bicarbonate of soda, mentos and salt!

3W created their own questions to explore during Science Week!

Reception Stay and Play

We investigated:
balloons, bubbles, chromatography, made spinners, floating and sinking in layers of different liquids and making paper helicopters!
