House Games Competition
House Team Games
Since designing shields for their teams in October, the feeling of House team spirit has been growing and last week saw pupils in KS2 taking part in a House Team Games competition. Year 3 and 4 pupils in their teams of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water competed against each other at Dodgeball. In Year 5, the pupils enjoyed what turned out to be a one-day international style Kwik Cricket day and Year 6 had great fun playing Caterpillar Rounders.
Pupils have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a House team game event and learned the importance of collaboration and teamwork. It was fantastic to see pupils encouraging each other when the chips were down and celebrating wins in a respectful manner. The House team winner for this event was Fire so congratulations to all of them. There will be more House events next term including a Spelling Bee competition and House Rap competition.
Eco Warriors Greener and Meaner Than Ever!
KCA Eco Warriors leave no room unchecked!
This month the KCA Eco Warriors have been out and about, visiting classes to see if they are being Eco friendly. Now that the colder months have set in, the Warriors are looking out for radiators which are on at the same time as windows being open. They continue to check if projectors have been kept on whilst everyone is out of class as well as lights, recycling evidence and faulty taps.
In addition to the Eco walks, KCA School Council carries out its recycling walks on a Thursday afternoon each week. Councillors bring their paper recycling bags and walk down with Mrs Gandhi to the paper recycling bins. Not only do they have bags and bags of paper to recycle but they also bring down any plastic recycling!
This year the KCA Primary Council is greener and meaner when it comes to plastic pollution and paper waste!

The Planetarium Comes to KCA
On 19th November, children from Reception and Year 2 classes had an amazing opportunity to get close to the stars, planets, moon and milky way as they crawled on all fours into a giant inflated planetarium. Once inside the dome planetarium, children were able to see the night skies and learned about some of the constellations. They were given an insight into the other planets in our solar system. This experience has provided the children with a great stimulus for discussion about the topic of Space and subsequent writing which they will do as part of their English lessons.

Year 5 pupils visited a clay pot making factory and museum in Agost. They are studying the Ancient Greeks at the moment and this linked in nicely with some work we are doing on Ancient Greek daily life and how they made and used clay pots.
