Harvest Celebration

 


Thank you to everyone who came to support our harvest celebration this morning. The children came ready to share all of their harvest learning. We heard about pumpkins from Wrekin class, the story of Stone Soup from Malvern class and some important messages from Brecon class and how we can learn about harvest through the very vegetables that grow.

Top of the Times Tables!

 

Four pupils from Beckbury were selected as “Top of their Class” at the Spring Term Multiplication Competition and went through to the final held at St Mary’s Bluecoat Primary in Bridgnorth.  Here are the finalists who came top in their schools and represented their year groups with terrific recall of their times tables in a final full of tricky questions:

 

Beckbury Finalists at the Spring Slam with Mrs Holt and Mrs Blackford:

 

St Marys: Charlie, Jack, Billy, Oliver

Worfield: Rebecca, Christopher, Oliver, Isaac 

Beckbury: Jessica, Dominic, Alexcey, Jack

 

The final consisted of a mixture of fun games and warm up activities before the final rounds took place.  Mrs Holt, Director of Teaching and Learning said "Knowing times tables is an essential part of being successful in maths and the Spring Slam was a great way for all the children to learn their tables in a fun and competitive way."

Mrs Blackford is the federation governor for maths and has a successful background as a maths teacher, who always takes a keen interest in promoting maths, entertained the children with a poem about times tables that she had learnt as a child at school! Mrs Blackford said, “The finalists had worked so hard at learning their tables and were the best from each School from across the Trinity Federation it was lovely to see they were all eager, excited and full of trepidation”

I wonder who will be 2019 Champions? It could be you!

Safer Internet Day: Create, Connect, Share, Respect

A wealth of real life knowledge and experiences were grasped and shared throughout Safer Internet Day with the theme of Create, Connect, Share, Respect. Children paused their typical routine to come together as a school to collect their thoughts and learning on being a safe internet user.

 

Skills such as coding, debugging and creating algorithms were used to aid the children’s e-safety knowledge. Children worked together across Reception to Year 6 to make sure everybody understood the message of this special day.

 

The children were also encouraged to look at their own digital footprint; an invaluable activity that highlighted the use of the internet in a young person’s life. It was important for children to share their own experiences and learn from each other as well as being part of a fun, engaging day. A highlight was our hashtag chalking on the playground with some of the best hashtags remembered for a very long time.

Safer Internet Day

The children learnt a lot on this year's Safer Internet Day. This year the focus was on using images safely online and we had a super morning taking part in a range of activities designed to keep our own images and other's images safe when we are online. This ties in with our E-safety policy and our E-safety lessons that take place all year around.
