Primary go "Around the World"

At King's College Alicante the Primary pupils have been celebrating a special week with a geography theme. During the week titled "Around the World" we have been celebrating cultural diversity and improving our geographical knowledge; thinking about different cultures and traditions.
 
Throughout the week children completed various activities linked to the countries they were studying, tasks included cookery, craft, art, computing, dance, poetry writing and much more. Younger classes and older classes joined together to share their learning, the pupils really loved this!  
 
At the end of our special week we held our “Around the World” themed Carnival day. Classes paraded around the school wearing costumes linked to countries studied and each year group shared a picnic following the same theme.
 
At KCA we frequently hold special themed events, when pupils can make links between the subjects they study in a fun and creative way.

It's a Small World

Whatever the weather, our young learners are always ready to explore their outdoor learning environment.
 
On our playgground they can develop and master a variety of skills which will give them a great start to their school learning journey.
 
What do they do?
 
In the kitchen role play area the children have been writing down orders and preparing ‘food’ for the customers waiting patiently for their meal. They have been developing their English through recreating real life experiences such as working at home from their computer in a relaxed atmosphere. Some children like to build with lego; while this is a fun activity, it also strengthens muscles in their fingers which helps them hold a pencil and become fabulous writers. The children have been working on their language skills through acting out scenarios with the small world people and animals. We found that the bikes brought in opportunities to collaborate through working as a team. When the bikes ‘break’ we can even take them to the garage to get repaired. First the mechanic must make an assessment to work out how to fix it. Sometimes it is nice to sit and play board games such as snakes and ladders. Good friends have been taking turns to roll the die and using their maths to count as they move along.
 
We are proud of our little learners in Reception and are pleased with how much learning they get out of their play experiences every day at King's.
 
 




Eco warriors

Our new team of Eco Warriors, the Primary Councillors from all the "C" classes did their first walk of the term.
They reported that "Overall - classes are doing really well."
 
The team walk around the Primary School with Mrs Gandhi to check how eco friendly each class are being.  They check that during lunch time we are switching lights off to save electricity, they look for recycling bags in classrooms, they also report if heating is on but windows are open etc
 
After this walk all classes were reminded  "If you spot any dripping taps which seem to drip even if they are not on please let maintenance know." 

Well done Eco Warriors!
