World War 1 Centenary Commemoration 2018

Everyone here at KPI have been busy preparing for the World War 1 centenary commemoration weekend. We were asked to help decorate Wales Parish Church with poppies and poppy themed artwork and we’ve definitely relished the task. The children in each key stage have really enjoyed producing their designs and have been very interested to learn about WW1 and Remembrance Day.

Year 2 visit from ‘That Poetry Bloke’

Last week some KS1 classes at KPI had a visit from ‘That Poetry Bloke’, Craig Bradley. It was amazing to see how much fun you can have with words. ‘That Poetry Bloke’ helped us explore the world of words through songs and funny poems. We had a fantastic day and lots of fun with words!

WW1 Centenary Commemoration November 2018

Everyone here at KPI are very excited to be involved in the community plans for the Centenary Commemoration of World War 1. Kiveton and Wales have been busy making poppies to create displays over four memorials throughout the two villages. Over the weekend of 10th-11th November 2018 there will be special services held at both Wales Methodist Chapel and Wales Parish Church along with the Remembrance Day Parade on Sunday 11th November.

The weekend will finish with a special lighting of the beacon service on Sunday 11th November that will be held simultaneously throughout the country.

There will be poppy art work from the children at KPI on display at Wales Church and a special quiz has been designed for children and families to take part in over the Remembrance Weekend. Please share the information on this post to spread the word to as many people as possible.
