Shortlisted For British International School Award
We are so excited to announce that King’s Infant School has been shortlisted for the Outstanding Community Initiative award given at the British International School Awards 2018 held in London this coming January.
Our #smallschoolbigheart campaign last year was all about our children getting involved with helping our local community and seeing the difference they could make to those on our doorstep. Our students visited the local old people's home on a Friday where they sang, knitted and chatted with the residents. We also had a Christmas collection where our students filled shoe-boxes with gifts for less-fortunate children in both Madrid and Africa.
We are very proud that these initiatives have been recognised and we will carry on playing our part in helping the community this year!
Language Through Dough!
Ms Sygrove’s group of four students have been working hard on learning positional language; how to say ‘into’, ‘on top of’ and ‘next to’. Following the recipe to make the playdough enabled them to put this new vocabulary into practice. The children also thought about the senses when describing what the ingredients looked like, how they felt to touch and how they smelt.
The group worked brilliantly together; it was a fantastic opportunity for the older children to help our youngest students here at school whilst practising new vocabulary. These creative, hands-on sessions are not only great fun, but help children to remember what they have learnt in class.
