We’re delighted to announce a new Family Learning event at KPI. This FREE Family Learning is a 2 week project for children in Year 2 and their parents/carers. The 2 sessions are 17th and 24th October and will explore how we can help to save the environment. Children and parents will work together using a range of art and crafts to make a piece of art that details different ways we can look after our planet.
At Kiveton Park Infant School we want children to have a say. We want to know how they feel about things, and to listen to their views on how to change things to make them better. In the next couple of weeks each class will be electing 2 MPs to represent them. The MPs will go to meeting sand share ideas from their class.
If your child would like to be a class MP, they must tell everyone what they would do to make our school better; by either talking to the children in class, making a poster or writing a letter. These will be shared with their class over the next couple of weeks(canvassing for votes will end Thursday 10th October).
The children in each class will vote for the 2 children they think will do the best job on Friday 11th October.
Children who wanted to be members of School Parliament in Mrs Goucher’s class talked to the class today about why they should be voted for to be an MP. They also answered questions that others had about what made them a good choice for the role.
Voting took place today for School Parliament members. Children could make a poster, write a letter or talk to the class about why they would make a good MP. Mrs Grady’s class were very proud of the posters and letters they made.
This child in Mrs Mason’s class has been busy making a poster to tell everyone why he would like to be a member of School Parliament.
Congratulations to the first winner of the ‘Golden Lock’ prize last week. These Year 2 children helped attach it onto a scooter/bike at random and this lucky child from Mrs Mason’s was the winner.
As part of our Modeshift Stars Active Travel challenge, we’re encouraging pupils, parents and staff to actively travel to school. There will be a ‘Golden Lock’ winner each week so please keep travelling to school on scooters and bikes.
So many children and families taking part in KPI 10 Day Active Travel challenge this week! Children who travel to school in an active way can record their travel on a class chart and if they can travel actively for the whole 10 days of the challenge they will earn a special badge to celebrate.
Travelling actively can include walking, jogging, riding a bike/scooter or choosing to ‘park and stride’. If you travel by bike or scooter look out for the special gold bike lock this week. If you find the lock attached to your bike then you have won a prize! Here’s one of our Year 2 children with a message about how to claim the prize.
This Year 2 class have made a display to tell everyone about the NSPCC campaign, ‘TALK PANTS’. Talk Pants teaches children an important message in an age appropriate way, helping children to keep themselves safe.
Well done to everyone who has taken part in our 10 Day Active Travel Challenge so far. Looks like this class might be winning with the amount of children choosing to travel actively to school! Great work!
Remember, as part of our Modeshift Stars Active Travel challenge, we’re encouraging pupils, parents and staff to actively travel to school either by walking, travelling on a bike/scooter and by choosing to park and stride.
Our school will be taking part in the 10 day Active Travel Challenge starting tomorrow, Monday 7th, and finishing on Friday 18th October 2019.
The challenge is for pupils & their families to choose an active way of getting to school over the 10 day period.
It would be great if as many children as possible could take part and travel to school in an active way during the challenge.
Walking, cycling, skating, scooting and park & stride are all active ways of travelling.
During the challenge each classroom will have a wall chart on which pupils who have traveled actively will record their journey by adding a special sticker to the chart. Those pupils with 10 stickers on the chart at the end of the 10 day challenge will be awarded a prize.
Please be aware if you live a long way from school and need to drive you can still take part by parking away from school (at least a 5 minute walk) and walking the last part of your journey, this is called Park & Stride.
