Things to enjoy
Hello from everyone at The Beacon!
We are missing you all...
Take a look at our staff video. Who can you spot?
Remember this? We just had an online staff meeting and someone suggested that you might enjoy seeing this again. The Staff Dance at last year's end of summer term School Concert.
Thank you to Martha and Tom for sharing this family quiz. How many of the images from in and around Exmouth can you identify? Download the quiz here.
Answers will be posted after the Bank Holiday weekend.
Theatre Alibi's I believe in Unicorns by Michael Morpurgo
Back in the Autumn Term we had a visit from the amazing Theatre Alibi who performed I Believe in Unicorns by Michael Morpurgo to everyone at school - and we absolutely loved it. The show had children and adults spellbound. I’m sure your children will remember it.
The wonderful team at Theatre Alibi have allowed us to see the production again online - well worth settling down with a cocoa.
The book does contain difficult themes as it’s set during World War Two in a country which was under occupation - but that is not the main message children took away from it. The message is one of a love of reading and story - the joy of being lost in a book so much that it becomes real to you. Enjoy the film.
Families have been sent the password you will need to access the film.
If you would like further information about the production, it’s available here.
Theatre Alibi are producing a weekly task for children and families to enjoy. You'll find it here.
Our staff team know how to have fun too.... these photos were taken once everyone had left the playground as the school closed after our final playground performance by our Y6 children who learned songs from Matilda in one day! .
Thank You to The Manor Hotel Pete, the Manager, deserves to be The Beacon’s Star of the Week for the donations of food and soft drink items which we delivered to some of our families today. Those who received a food parcel were very grateful.
Learning together as a family - great photo, thank you!
Year 5 Bubble
Year 5 have been using water-colour paints to explore elements of the school building with great results! Here's is a selection of them.
Thank you for sharing your Peace Symbol, Lucy. A super image of peace and we're all looking forward to being able to share a hug with family and friends we can't see at the moment.
Year 2 read their Dragon Poems
Listen to some of the examples from the book and hear them read their own versions.
Year 1 have been learning all about space - Take a look at one of our bubble groups. Miss McDonald set a learning challenge to explore how an alien might move as part of year 1's 'Moon Zoom' topic. Mrs Pow and her bubble group put together this performance for us all to enjoy.
Learn the 'Friends Across The Earth' song in Greek
On our recent Erasmus visit to Greece seven children from Year 6 learned to sing this song in Greek. Let's see if some more children can learn it too.
Here are the words of the song: greek-words.pdf
Below you can hear how the song should sound when you get it right: (Sung by Mary, a teacher from Grevena).
Andrew Lloyd Webber is making one of his West End Musicals available to view on his You Tube channel every Friday evening at 7pm and for the following 48 hours.
RAMM in Exeter have lots of interesting things to explore on their website!
Snow White and the Seven Jockeys was due to be performed next week at the Blackmore Theater, Exmouth. Our children decided they'd put on Impromptu Playground Performances instead. To the many children who aren't in school - we miss you, but please sing along from home as you watch!
After our Year 3 and 4 children had performed, we invited everyone to join in! Living life in all its fullness (John 10:10) on our playground at pick up time! Well done everyone!
Mr Chalkley has been busy sharing learning ideas online. He's looking forward to continuing some maths learning outside soon!
