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.

They stole Empire state building, snatched the Eifel Tower, and swept the magic of the ancient pyramids.

They dug out the Sphynx, pulled the Leaning Tower of Piza out of the ground and ran away with the White House.

They swept Big Ben out of the ground, dragged Buckingham Palace away, and yanked the Shard out the ground.

Lucy's Earth similes:

Like a drop of colour in a galaxy of black, the silky colour of the earth spread out in a burst of colour.

Like a silky blanket, luscious, green forests spread out across the earth.

Like a shiny peal, beautiful oceans flooded the earth in sapphire-blue water.

Lucy's sun sentences:

“We could build a hot air balloon to soar up above the stars!” the boy shouted excitedly.

The boy screamed happily,

“We could launch a rocket and fly to the world above!”

“We could throw the longest rope the world has ever seen and climb up into to the thirsty flames of the sun!” Shouted the boy with a determined look in his eyes.

“We could build an enormous ladder and climb up into the darkness of the sky!” He screamed eagerly.
