Author of IHERO, Steve Skidmore, wows Alicante Pupils
Author Steve Skidmore, who wrote IHero, Code Mission and Kung Fu Kitten amongst many others, visited King’s College Alicante to do workshops with children from Year 1 to Year 6. Children were really excited as many of them have read Steve's books which they love. During the course of the day, he used children and teacher volunteers to demonstrate how to write and create imagery and atmosphere. Later in the day, he led a very special workshop for some of our gifted and talented pupils who see themselves as future authors.
Parents Participate in putting the Jigsaw pieces together at PSHEE&C Workshop.
So what is PSHEE&C? That’s what parents found out at a recent workshop that they attended at King’s College Alicante. They learned that their children receive at least one hour a week where they discuss things which may affect them personally or socially; may impact on their health, education and economy as well as develop them as citizens.
At King's College Alicante, every child from nursery to Year Six will participate in Jigsaw lessons where they will learn to be calm, as well as to develop as citizens in their class, school, home, community and the wider world. They will meditate during their Jigsaw lesson as well focusing on specific areas. There are 6 key topics or puzzles:
Being me in my world
Dreams and Goals
Each of these puzzles lasts 6 weeks. During this time, every child should be calm and listening to the speaker. Parents, who attended the workshop last week, were able to practise being calm, like their children in a PSHEE&C lesson.
Over 100 parents attended and many said that they would have liked to have experienced these lessons when they were younger. Many asked for further workshops on practical ways of helping children learn and focus.
There will be further workshops held on PSHEE&C later in the year, looking particularly at Relationships and Health Education which will be statutory in the UK from September 2019.
KCA Time Capsule Ceremony
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!
