Gardening at Kings
At the end of November, the children learnt all about gardening! They learnt how to plant plants so that they grow well, and what they need to do to keep them healthy. At the end we were left with a beautiful row of plants round our top patio. Feel free to come and look at what a great job the children did!

Firefighters visit with their Fire Engine
Today the children were visited by the firefighters of Madrid, and this time they brought their firetruck to show the children. We were taught what it takes to be a firefighter, and what an important service they provide to everyone in the city. Then the children were shown around the firetruck and watched the fire hose 'in action'. A very exciting start to the day!
Donating our Harvest Food
Today the kids had the chance to learn about charity and donating what we don't need, to those who need it. After collecting food all month, we had plenty to donate to the Parroquia Sta. Maria Magadalena. There, they learnt about why it is important we consider those less fortunate than ourselves and how we can help those in need. We'd like to thank the parents of Kings for their generous donations.
Zoo Comes to Nursery
In early November, the nursery children got the chance to see and interact with all kinds of animals, such as chickens, rabbits, snakes, owls and goats! As they sat in a circle with, they learnt lots of facts about all sorts of animals, and were shown how to handle the animals safely and gently.
After a week of spooky science the children finally had the chance to show off their inner monsters! Everyone got their chance to shine in our halloween parade, and we picked our favourite ghouls, ghosts and monsters to win the best costume prize! Here are some the winners from Reception and Nursery Class.
Reception Autumn Walk
Reception have been learning about their city. They went on a walk in the area surrounding the school. They saw lots of places including a church, kiosk and garage.
Year 1 Autumn Walk
Year 1 went on an Autumn walk at the beginning of the month. It was great fun collecting leaves, twigs, conquers... They were then able to talk about how seasons change.
Spooky Science Week
During our Science and Halloween themed week, Year 1 enjoyed making potions, watching how the ingredients reacted and role played what would happen if they drank the potion.
Firefighters visit King's Infant School
The Nursery children had a special visit from the Madrid firefighters. They learned about keeping safe in the event of a fire and who to call. Miss Lodeiro was the lucky person that was chosen to demonstrate the special clothing they have to wear.
Year 1 Muncyt Museum Trip
Year 1 went to the Muncyt museum in Alcobendas. It was a great day discovering and experimenting with Science. The teachers were very proud of our children’s behaviour at the museum.
Year 2 Sorolla Museum Trip
Year 2 visited the Sorolla Museum to look at his Seaside paintings as part of our ´Beside the Seaside´ topic. They explored his former home, looked at his beautiful art work and learnt a lot about his life. They made their own seascapes back in class.
Throughout October, all our children and families have donated food for Caritas to be distributed to people in need. The children will take the food directly to the charity so they can learn about the what they can do to help people in the local area.
