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.
