Nursery Sports day was a huge success with the egg and spoon race, the bucket race and the obstacle race. All the children loved taking part and they particularly enjoyed the obstacle course at the end of all the races. Well done to them all.
In celebration of the Centenary Year, Beechwood had the pleasure of hosting a momentous musical occasion. The concert saw all the Prep and Senior Choirs perform an exciting and diverse programme of music with Kent Chorus directed by Sarah Kershaw and Richard Jenkinson, accompanied by the Meridian Ensemble and Caroline Fox.

All the pupils from Years 3 to 6 in the Prep School (over a hundred children!) were involved in this year's Prep Production and their hard work in preparing for the play culminated in two wonderful performances on Thursday and Friday this week.
Funny for Money
There were lots of smiles and plenty of laughter in the Prep School today as the children embraced the ‘Make your face funny for money' theme for this year's national Comic Relief fund-raising day.
Final Forest School Trip
The sun came out for the Reception children's last visit to Forest School. We began by setting up camp and making sure our boundaries had been set. The theme was Space. Our ranger showed us how to bruise the willow which allowed the children to bend it into lots of different shapes. Our challenge was to make two triangles and fix them together to make a star. The children did very well and, with lots of determination, managed to create some excellent stars. We were treated to marshmallows around the camp fire and each child got a turn to toast theirs. After our treat and warm cup of hot chocolate the children went off to explore the forest for the last time.
Nursery Tea Party
On Wednesday afternoon the Nursery held a tea party to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. The children had made biscuits and cakes for the parents to enjoy and we all had a lot of fun in the garden as the weather stayed dry. We raised £105.72 in total so we would like to say a very big ‘Thank You' to all the parents who came along and donated to such a good cause.
