Mrs Bevan teaches the reception and year one children in Pipistrelle Class.
Known as the ‘singing teacher’, she often breaks into song during the school day. She is also a keen gardener and has lots of plans to grow things around the school – watch out for signs of the daffodils that were planted last autumn. In her spare time she enjoys amateur dramatics and occasionally arranges for ‘visitors’ to meet the children including Professor Plum (during science week), a pirate and even the queen!
To find out what we are learning this term:
Visit from Avon Fire and Rescue
The reception children recently enjoyed a trip down to WASPS before half term to meet some firefighters from Avon Fire and Rescue and to explore a fire engine up close as part of their topic ‘People who Help us in the Community’. They also relished the opportunity to try on a fire fighter’s helmet.
Rocco from Pipistrelle class said: “ It was really good. They flashed their lights and put the hose on.”
Visit from Barney the Dog
A local dog walker also came to visit Pipistrelle class to introduce Barney the golden retriever to the children. She explained how she looks after Barney when his owner (Mrs Bevan!) is at work. The children loved meeting Barney and some overcame their fears to give him a stroke.
Alana: “ I loved meeting Barney. I gave him a stroke, he was very soft.”
Harry: “I liked hearing him bark!”
