Something spooky’s happened to our lovely children and staff at the Beacon Centre Primary! Fabulous costumes everybody. Thank you to our ever supportive parents.
Thumbs up to spooky biscuits. Our children have been honing their hygiene knowledge and fine motor skills decorating these spooktacular treats. Lots of patience, consideration and good manners evidenced too. Well done everyone!
Good old apple bobbing! Our children had a great day, thanks to the dedicated staff.
Magical maths! Millie in Class 1 is the Cleverest Witch in town, she made a repeating pattern paper chain and counted the links. Great job!
Bonfire Night and Darker Nights Safety
Parents, our school has been working closely with Police and other partners in the lead up to Halloween and Bonfire Night, this is to ensure that everyone enjoys this period safely. Police Officers have been in attendance in all schools in the area speaking to students & making them aware whilst this time is full of excitement, it can also be a frightening period for other members of the community .
In previous years the school has worked with the Police with teachers going out on patrol to provide support and engage with youths who they are familiar with . This is something we will be replicating this year with the concerns of our students paramount as always.
Please advise your child to enjoy this period but to also be considerate to the local community as Police will be enforcing the law around antisocial behaviour.

Connor from Class 2 wrote a fantastic rhyming acrostic poem for Halloween.
The Beacon Centre Primary tweeted Connor’s work and was very excited to receive a reply from Cressida Cowell who is the author of ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ and a children’s laureate.
Cressida Cowell wrote:
‘Love the lurking ghosts waiting to be found… love to Connor from me.’
