Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Our Daring Dyson Project

Year Five have borrowed the Dyson design Box as part of their DT project this half term.



Using the Dyson Air MultiplierTM fan as an example (which we allowed to borrow), the Design Process Box contains a comprehensive teacher's pack, lesson plans, videos and posters to guide us through the design process.

Here is what we've learned...


First we learned about the Dyson Fan, took it apart and put it back together again.

We discussed the areas we felt the fan could be improved upon and looked at how it was ingenious.

We continued our learning at home and were asked to create a box using a net and no tape or stickers. This was quite the challenge, as we needed correct measurements to make this work. However, we were able to use our knowledge from school to test out how to create this.
