Rock Steady Workshop!
The children thoroughly enjoyed participating in a workshop led by Rock Steady this week. There was sheer delight on their faces as they clapped and joined in with familiar songs performed by Jamie. Some children even got to demonstrate playing the instruments themselves. The drums were a big hit! Rock Steady are supporting Bearwood in raising the profile of music by giving children the opportunity to enhance their musical talents and find their inner rhythm.
If you would like any more information, please contact Rock Steady themselves or Mrs Haden as Music Lead.
This week, our Y6 girls netball team attended a tournament at Westende Primary School with Miss Davis and Mrs Mackenzie. The children were competitive and worked really well as a team, considering this was their first competition. It was great to see such positive attitudes from our girls - they made us very proud. We very much look forward to being able to compete again.
Eco Garden Update! October 2022
Key Stage 1 flexed their muscles last term to harvest some huge carrots from the vegetable patch. It was mucky but very exciting work! Next we will dig up some potatoes.
We have really enjoyed watching our pumpkin grow – thank you to the Johnstone family for providing us with the plant. We harvested a whopper pumpkin and carved it with the Bearwood logo for Halloween. Now the eco warriors are hard at work weeding the vegetable patch, ready to sow some new crops.
Thank you to Mr Shacklady and Mrs Mackenzie and our Parent helpers who helped create our vegetable patch! We can't wait to see what grows!
Reception enjoyed playing in the sunshine, by playing with bubbles and painting with water.
We raised a whopping £322.87! Thank you to everyone who took part.
Children and Staff had lots of fun dressing up as their favourite book character!
We dressed up as our favourite Rockstar to support Maths week. The theme was 'Dress up as your favourite times table rockstar! '
UKS2 had a great time learning about WW2 during the WW2 workshop. Great fun was had!
In UKS2 this week, Lily gave an assembly about Diabetes to help her classmates understand the condition she lives with. The assembly was very informative and Lily did a great job of presenting. We are hoping she will inspire other children in UKS2 to create their own assemblies to present to their peers.
Year 5/6 did a fantastic job at Maypole Dancing at the Winnersh Fete. A big thank you to Mrs Burton and Mrs Shaw who helped teach the children.
