On Friday 8th and Monday 11th December, Beer Primary performed ‘Bethlehem the Musical’, an original nativity with a modern twist. The audience was dazzled at the children’s enthusiasm and determination to make the performance perfect.
Mary and Joseph’s duet with Martha and Caleb was incredible. Class 1 wowed the audience with their beautiful star dance while Clara delivered an amazing solo. One funny moment was when one of the children had eaten one of the props and when she go to say her line, she was still chewing! Another funny moment was when Gran (played by Theo) was looking for some holiday romance!
A big thank you to Steve (and Mandy) as this is his 20th year helping with the school play!

Thank you to Billy, Josh, Sienna, Jake, Isabelle, Evie and Kyla for helping serve yesterday’s OAP lunch so politely and professionally. Afterwards, all the children enjoyed performing at the event and although there are still some nerves, they are looking forward to this afternoon’s performance too. We look forward to seeing you at the perfomances.
Class 4 have set up their own twitter account and are tweeting regularly about the work they are doing. We are retweeting some of them on the main school account but please follow class 4 on @BeerCofEClass4 to see what they are up to!
We saw another successful, if not slightly dark and cold, Stockland this week, with all children striving to beat their scores from last time. During the evening, we lost and found two trainers, got covered in mud and found lots of our children in the top 20. Well done to Alfie and Charlie who both beat their scores last time to come 15th and 19th in the year 3/4 boys race. Followed by a special well done to Roman, who truly gave the race everything he had and achieved an astonishing 14th in a very tough category (year 5/6 boys). Congratulations to every single child, especially Sophie and Corey for completing your first Stockland Cross Country race. Thank you again, goes to all the parents for helping us transport the children. Let’s hope the next race is lighter and warmer!!
Thank you to everyone that has helped make this event such a success, we have raised approximately £155.00 so far and we are looking forward to raising plenty more later from our after school cake sale. (We will also be selling any remaining wristbands). Thank you to everyone that came to school wearing ‘spots’ and donated money or bought wristbands and last but not least, to all the parents/carers that made such a wonderful array of cakes for us to sell later. Thank you in advance to everyone that purchased them also! Well done everyone!
Daisy and Hope have been superstars this week selling poppies every morning for us and the donation box has been steadily filling over the course of the week – thank you for supporting such a worthy cause. When the donations have been collected by The Royal British Legion volunteer and we know what has been raised, we’ll let you know. We all joined together this morning for our 1 minute’s silence and planted wooden crosses in the raised beds as a mark of respect.
On Wednesday, the year 2 children enjoyed going to a multiskills festival organised by Colyton Grammar School. They had the opportunity to develop their movement skills (agility, balance and coordination) through a carousel of fun activities. Thank you to Mr Simier and Mr Chadwick for accompanying and encouraging the children.
Congratulations to every child who took part in the Stockland Cross Country on Wednesday. You were all phenomenal! A special well done to Darcie May Green who came 5th in her very first race, with her team mates Lily and Maisie both ranking in the top 20, even after a shaky start! The team spirit demonstrated from all was fantastic, especially making sure all the new racers knew the route and tried to keep together as best as possible, a real credit to our school. Thank you also goes to all of the parents who braved the muddy conditions to transport the children!
This morning we have had a visit from Rachel Savage of ‘Mini Yoga’. Each class has enjoyed a half hour taster session that centred around improving balance, coordination and concentration. The children have all enjoyed taking part. Some of the staff will be receiving training from Rachel this afternoon in order to be able to deliver similar sessions to the children on an ongoing basis.
