Week 8 Update

Attitude Presentation: On Friday afternoon, Year 7 & 8 spent almost 90 minutes learning about the X-Factor; how to be a great friend. We learnt that being friendly will have a huge impact on our success in life. James held us in the palm of his hand, made us laugh (lots!) and gave us some invaluable advice on what we should and shouldn't do when it comes to friendship.
'To wish you were someone else or to pretend you are someone else is to waste the person that you are.'
Class Photos: These are happening on Monday. Please make sure you come to school sparkling in your tidiest uniform!

Good Luck: On Wednesday eight Year 8 students will represent Beckenham at the Blue Light Canterbury Schools PCT Competition. This is where teams of Year 7 & 8 students compete against each other as they challenge themselves on the same test the police must undertake as part of their training. James, Jacob, Teille, Emily, Jack M, Jimmy, Naquita and Briana, we know you will give of your best and make Beckenham proud.

Swimming Zones: Well done to all those who competed at the Zone Swimming Sports on Thursday. All the best to those who have now qualified for the Canterbury Swimming Sports.

Year 8 Leadership Camp: Thank you for getting all forms back. Keep an eye out for another notice early in Week 8.

Writer's Workshop: This coming Thursday and Friday, ten children will  be working with Elizabeth O'Connor, a fiction/scripting expert, to write a script suitable for a radio play. We look forward to hearing what they create. This workshop has been offered to some of our talented writers, unfortunately we were limited to just 10 children. 

Sausage Sizzle: Take a break from making sandwiches on Friday, we will be selling sausages for lunch to raise money for our Year 8 Leadership Camp. We hope you can support this fund-raising.

Many Thanks to the six mums who have spent two afternoons putting together spelling resources to be used in our Year 7 & 8 classes. We very much appreciated your time and look forward to using the cards in our spelling programmes. 

Duathlon: Look out for duathlon entry forms in Week 8. This event takes place on April 5th. We investigated  the possibility of having the cycle section on the road, so that we could run a full length event. Unfortunately the cost of setting up the safety systems required was way beyond our budget, so the event will take place on and around Beckenham Park.
