What's been happening at Beechwood
October has been a very busy month for the pupils of Beechwood, especially with two special guests speaking about their success. As part of Black History Month Baroness Floella Benjamin visited the school and led an assembly about her aspirations to succeed in life following her move from Jamaica. Floella then visted the pupils in class and shared some more of her experiences and answered questions the pupils had. http://www.luton.gov.uk/news/Pages/Baroness-Floella-Benjamin-a-big-hit-with-Beechwood-Primary-School-pupils-.aspx
Also this month saw the introduction of the new education programme, "Be The Best You Can Be" launched in Year 4 and 5. This is a programme that supports pupils ambitions for the future and encourages them to have a passion that they wish to succeed in. To introduce the topic Gail Emms, former world champion and Olympic silver medallist in badminton came to visit Beechwood. Gail spoke to the pupils about the obstacles that she has had to overcome on her journey to becoming a medal-winning champion. She also visited the children in their classes to answer their questions. http://www.luton.gov.uk/news/Pages/Olympian-Gail-Emms-urge-Beechwood-Primary-children-to-Be-the-Best-you-can-Be.aspx

Foundation pupils have started an amazing topic involving Forest Schools and all the pupils are learning about key figures within Black History Month.
