We are very excited to announce that we have a special visitor coming to school on Tuesday 26th November. Granny Norbag will be coming to see Year 1 & 2 classes. Author Malcolm J. Hogan will be bringing his Granny Norbag experience to KPI and introducing his latest book to us. The children have loved previous visits from Malcolm and we’re really looking forward to seeing him again.
Copies of the book signed by Malcolm will be available to purchase and also the opportunity to buy all 3 of the Granny Norbag books. There will be order forms available for those who wish to buy any signed copies. Send us a message on school Dojo (social media account) if you require an order form and we will send one home with your child on Monday.
KPI were very proud and excited to be part of ‘Kiveton and Wales Kindness in the Community Week’ at the beginning of October.
Each class at KPI took up the challenge of completing 21 acts of kindness throughout the week. Alongside the class challenge, each child took home a personal record sheet to record their acts of kindness at home.
Check out the new ‘Sportsmanship Award’ board in school. The award will be presented half-termly and children will be nominated by staff for showing characteristics of one, or more, of the sportsmanship themes. The themes are respect, excellence, courage, friendship, equality, being a positive example to others, striving to meet goals, inspiration, taking part fairly, teamwork, being motivated by the achievement of others, giving your best, determination and supporting others 🏆🏆🏆

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.
