Neptune’s Class Assembly

On Thursday 26th September, Neptune class held the first class assembly of the year. It was lovely to see that some of the children’s parents were able to attend and find out about the School’s Link Project that Neptune and the other Year 5 classes will be working on all year.

Each child in the class was able to take part and share what their name was and what it meant. The children spoke with clear voices and were extremely proud to perform in front of their parents.

Thank you to the parents who were able to spare some time today and watch the assembly. And a big thank you to Neptune who did a fantastic job!

Our next parent assembly is Jupiter Class on Thursday 3rd October.  We look forward to seeing.

On Thursday 21st June Beechwood Primary School participated in the Luton School Torch Relay.

The torch will travel for 3 weeks before finishing at Bushmead Primary School on Friday 6th July. At Beechwood we received the torch from pupils from St Joseph’s Catholic School. In the playground the whole school welcomed the arrival of the torch and witnessed the passing of the torch. Our pupils then set off on the 1 mile run to Leagrave Primary School where they then passed the torch on once again.
