Dear Parents,

 

This week we welcomed many visitors to our school. Representatives from UPCT visited and spoke with our older students, while our younger ones competed against their peers in the King’s College Primary Games tournament (please do look out for the article on our website coming shortly). The Primary Games have become an annual event hosted by us. It is always a pleasure to see our ‘brothers and sisters’ from the rest of King’s Group here at KCM, enjoying our great facilities and also competing in a sporting manner in the best traditions of King’s College.

 

Yesterday our Year 7 parents were here for Parents’ Evening, while several prospective parents have visited the school during the week and been extremely impressed and complimentary.

 

And all of these visits were rounded off by the annual EYFS Sports Day earlier today, with lots of excited parents cheering on their young athletes!

 

As always a few things…

 

PRIMARY MATHS WORKSHOP- 10th APRIL – from Mrs Cassidy

As promised in the recent parent meetings, the first Maths workshop will take place on Wednesday 10th April at 9.15. The workshop will provide parents with understanding of the maths curriculum that is taught in KS1, along with the resources and strategies that are used to develop children’s understanding in this core subject. I would like to invite the parents of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.  The plan is for there to be refreshments from 9.15am, with the presentation starting at 9.30am.  Children will be joining me towards the end of the session to model mathematical working.

 

EASTER FAYRE AND CAKE SALE

On the morning of the last day of term, Friday 12th April we will be organising a mini-fayre. There will be a tombola , Tuck shop, hook-a-duck, Pin-the-tail on the bunny and several other things in order to raise funds for next year’s Music events and competitions.

 

There will also be a cake sale to raise funds for our charity in Lombok (the school I have mentioned previously) in Indonesia – please also see the display in our reception area.

 

ISAMS PARENT PORTAL

Reports are now available on the iSams Parent Portal. There are two ways to access the reports. You can visit the website  murcia.kingscollegeschools.org/ scroll to the bottom and choose “Parent Portal”. You will need to then type your username (which will be your registered email address) and your password. If your password doesn’t work, please click “Forgotten my password” and follow the instructions in the email you will then receive.

 

The second option is to download the iParent app. Visit your app store and search for iparent and download it. The school code is KCSM . From here you will find all our communications, student reports, timetable information for Secondary students, workshop files and shortly also the school calendar.

 

LOST PROPERTY

We have a large number of unnamed lost property. Please can we ask anyone who might be missing anything to check the lost property area. Anything that has a name in it has been returned to the students already. During the Easter holidays the remaining uniform will be donated to the school’s second hand uniform charity branch. We have a number of pairs of schools, shirts, jumpers, trousers shorts and even bags.

 

SPANISH TRANSLATION OF INSPECTION REPORT

Don’t forget that a translation of our excellent report is available on our website here. Please do take a few moments to read it, if you have not done so already.

 

SECURITY

A further reminder that parents should not to come into school without speaking with the staff on reception. We have had a number of incidents in recent months where parents have walked straight down the Key Stage 2 corridor and to classroom. I am sure you will understand that this is a safety and, indeed, a child protection issue. Many thanks.

 

SUMMER UNIFORM

Typically, the start of Summer uniform, seems to have coincided with a decrease in temperatures! Even so, please do visit Miriam in the shop to ensure your child has the correct uniform.
