Sports Day 2012

Children from Reception to Year 6 were put into 6 teams with the theme 'Greek Cities'. Each team started the week making

torches, banners, a song and dance to start the Sports Day. Parents joined us for a picnic. We had a lovely fun packed day.

   

 

 

Golden Jubilee Celebrations

Children and teachers came to school dressed in red, white and blue. We celebrated the day by inviting parents to lunch

in the playground. Each child was kindly given a mug, from Gill Sutcliffe, School Governor and the FTS gave each child

a Golden Jubilee coin.

Trip to Hatfield House

Children were taken by coach to Hatfield House to celebrate in the Planting a Tree Jubilee festivities. Sadly it was a very short visit but the

very excited children were able to see the queen, quite close up as you can see in the photos. The children finished the day playing sports

games on the field.

 

Stargazers Sleepover - March 2012

 

Children in Pioneers class asked Miss Horncastle for a sleepover as

their reward for the 'reading challenge'.

Mrs Vicary kindly stepped in to help and, of course invited Year 2 also.

What fun they had. The children had pizza to eat. They ventured into

the playground to look at the stars followed

by a night under the stars in the classroom (the projector was amazing!!!!!)

Night night, sleep tight..

Look at the stars projected onto the ceiling - wow !!!!

 

 

SCHOOL DISCO FEBRUARY 2012

 

Playing games at the disco.

Playing dead lions. Can anyone wake up the children?

Mrs Vicary and Miss Horncastle being mean trying to make everyone move!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KINGSWOOD - FEBRUARY 2012

   

Yesterday the children visited the beach. Not quite warm enough for swimsuits!!!

They have been playing scrapheap challenge, building blocks, caving, canoecapsizing and

swimming. Whilst swimming, the children managed to push Miss Horncastle

in - fully clothed!!! She wanted to go swimming secretly.....

Year 5 challenged themself to the 'Leaf of Faith' this afternoon. All managed to

attempt it; brave soldiers!! They are all off for a tasty roast for their evening meal.

Another fun day at Kingswood. Children have used the ICT Suite making movies and have

been told what whizz kids they all are!!!

Year 6 had the challenge of the dreaded Leap of Faith. Miss Horncastle was

also forced into it. Apparently she hugged the pole!!!

 

Problems with the internet connection at Kingswood hence the lack of photos.

 

A good night had by all at the disco, especially the teachers!! All of the children have

have a lovely break and are sad to be coming home.

Two activities this morning (Friday) then off to lunch and then the return home begins!
