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.

The Tutting Challenge!

The Tut Challenge from Mrs Joint and Miss Hubbard


What a challenge we have for you! We wanted you to have a task to relax, unwind and have fun! 


Your task is to create a short (no longer than a minute) routine involving sharp, well-timed movements. Do watch the example included. It was great fun to make and, as you can see, you do not need to be perfect. Watch the outtakes to see that not all went to plan! Ha ha! 


Below there are files to watch and use; these include a couple of backing tracks but you could use your own music if you'd prefer. The better examples of tutting include finger tutting, which might be good to try. 


If you would like to show everyone what you have created, please send to Mrs Joint ( Let her know if  you'd like it to go on the PE website too - she won't add it without your permission. 


Go for it, practise hard and - above all - have fun!
