Friday 10th November 2023

Firstly, we would like to say thank you so much to our Year 6 pupils and staff for sharing a really thought-provoking and creative Remembrance assembly.  This is a very important job that our oldest pupils perform each year and it was great so hear some famous poetry as well as our children's own work. Some of our Year 6 will also be representing the school at the Remembrance Sunday parade on the weekend where we will place our very own hand-made wreath on the War Memorial along with other community groups.

Luckily, the weather eventually came on our side this morning so that the Mitchell Hamer netball and football tournaments could go ahead as planned. Mr Ward-Wills and Mrs Welson work so hard each year to organise and run this important tournament with other local schools so that they can win the prestigious trophies that date back over 100 years.  There was such a brilliant atmosphere throughout the matches, with some super team work, resulting in one of our teams coming third in both netball and football.  Well done to all of our players and thank you so much to Mrs Welson, Mr Ward-Willis and Mr Haines for running all the matches.  A huge thank you to our adult helpers who also encouraged and supported the teams. Congratulations to Radnor Hills School for coming first in the netball and Eardisley for winning the football trophy and thank you to all the schools who came to join us.

Back at school, we have had lots to celebrate in our assemblies this week.  Joe's assembly taught us all about making self-less decisions and Mrs Welson announced the winners of our 500 words writing competition (which will now be displayed in the library) who were able to choose a free book from the Book Fair on Wednesday.

Our Headteacher's Stickers today were shared for so many lovely reasons - being independent, helping others, settling in well, fantastic homework and handwriting, working really hard during our assessment week, perseverance and excellent cooking skills.  We were also able to award our Achievement Certificates to our Nursery children, many of whom have been enjoying their new trikes, kindly provided by the Friends of KPS.  Mrs Turner has also announced a KS2 class competition on Times Tables Rock Stars running from Tuesday to Thursday next week so look out for the results of that and then there was the school disco!  A huge thank you to our wonderful team of volunteers who made it all possible, particularly Mr Perkins for being the cool DJ!

It's been such a busy week so please have a lovely restful weekend everyone!
