May Fair 2018
Visit from Bomberos Madrid and the Residencia
San Isidro Celebrations
April 23rd was Shakespeare's birthday, and so we could not help ourshelves but throw a Book Day!
Everyone has certainly gone to town with their book-inspired outfits; we have had some rather novel costumes including Willy Wonka's Golden Ticket.
Of course, there have been some classic choices such as The Hungry Caterpillar, The Gruffalo (and all of his friends), not to mention a few Alice In Wonderlands!
(Please excuse our book puns!)
Amigos de Nyumbani
On 12th April, we had a lovely visit from Ms Izabella Hearn, a former King's teacher, who came to give a special assembly. Ms Hearn works with Nyumbani, a wonderful charity based in Kenya, and explained to our children what life is like for orphans living at the Nyumbani Children's Home in Nairobi.
Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed learning about Kenyan culture, dressing up in traditional clothing and even learning some new words: JAMBO!
A huge ASANTE to Izabella for a wonderful assembly and we hope to see you again soon with more tales of Kenya!
Have you ever read a book on the top of a mountain, or whilst riding a sledge? Well, some of our pupils have!This term we are challenging our children to do some 'extreme reading' and send in their photos to display in reception. So far we have received some fantastic photos, so please keep sending them in!
Last Day of Term
Not only did we celebrate International Day, but we also had a visit from the Easter Bunny!
Year One collected their basket of chocolate eggs left by the Bunny after completing the fantastic Easter Hunt, following clues around school!
The Easter Bunny also left a huge bag of chocolate eggs for the Koala class, who managed to find all the clues and answer all of the questions.
Meanwhile up in Year 2 the Bears and the Dragons were busy writing their names in Korean for International Day and hearing all about Mr Murray's experiences from when he lived in Korea.
We wish you a very happy and restful Easter week and we look forwards to Term 3, beginning on Tuesday 3rd of April.
First Aid Master Class
Reception had a super time on Monday 19th March with our special guests, Ms Grigg's mum and dad, who came to give a First Aid master class!
Mr and Mrs Grigg explained how some children are born with disabilities such a blindness or deafness. The reception classes learnt some sign language and had to guide their partner, who wore a blindfold, around the classroom to understand more about these disabilities.
Reception also learnt some key first aid basics; they now know how to check someone for a head injury and how to put on a sling safely in the case of a broken arm.
A huge thank you to Mr and Mrs Grigg for this brilliant workshop and for teaching our children some essential life skills!
