What’s happening?

Greta and The Giants

    As you can see from the stunning displays, our ‘Take One Book’ project was a massive success. This year the whole school explored the incredible tale of Greta and The Giants. Author Zoe Tucker tells the inspiring story of a little girl who lives in a beautiful forest that is threatened by giants. It is based on the mission of Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Greta Thunberg.

    Each year group tackled a different writing challenge. Our EYFS children went on a climate change protest around Longford Park with banners they had designed themselves. The writing from Years 1-6 covered biographies, narratives and even persuasive letters to the United Nations. The writing was exceptional. Well done Kings Road.

Are you ready for World Word/Idiom Day?

    Every year we are amazed by the creativity of our children and staff who participate in this event. Children and staff from across the entire school dress up as either a word or an idiom. This creates such excitement throughout the day as they show off their home made costumes. Other children and staff try to guess each word or idiom and understand what it means. Children learn new and exciting vocabulary they may not have encountered before and they are also exposed to idioms in an exciting and engaging way. Attached are some wonderful ideas from last year. We can't wait to see what fresh ideas our children and staff will come up with this year. This event takes place on 'World Book Day' which is Thursday 5th March 2020.

Author wowed by pupil’s writing

    Author Kate Cunningham visited Year 2 to ignite our Great Fire of London topic. Kate has written a series of picture books through the eyes of her main character, Vlad the flea. Through his eyes, the children begin to understand the true horror of the Great Fire of London. During Kate’s workshop, the children engaged in role play, retelling the story and creating a bucket chain. They also enjoyed examining artefacts from 1666.

       Following the visit, the children had imagine they were one of the characters from Kate’s story to write a diary entry. She was so impressed she retweeted some of their work. Impressive! Well done Year 2.
