Dear Parents, 

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Easter holiday! Thank you very much for your kind comments and feedback on my first half term here at King’s College Murcia. I am really looking forward to the Summer term!

A couple of reminders. Students must keep a spare mask in their bag for those occasions when they break. Also, as we head into the summer term and weather changes, we ask that all students bring their own bottles.

 

Reports and Parent Consultation Meetings

You should have all received your child’ reports by now. We hope that you enjoyed reading about your child’s progress and that they were helpful.

Primary

As in previous years, parents who would like to discuss reports or those who have any follow-up questions will be able to meet their child’s teacher/s.  

Meetings will be online because of ongoing COVID concerns.

Meeting dates will be available.  These are:

  • 13th and 14th April (Key Stages 1 and 2)
  • 20th and 21st April (Early Years) 

Responding to parental feedback, we have included a meeting which accommodates working parents who have previously had difficulty attending meetings.

Information about booking appointments will be shared with parents later this week but, as always, please let me know of any questions you have regarding this – or any other – issue.

International pen friends

Students in Year 7 are engaged in an exciting geography project and have been  encouraged to write a letter to a new friend in another country, share ideas and knowledge, and learn about different places and cultures. In the future, we hope our school can collaborate on a climate change project, linked to the International Climate Change conference in Glasgow. 

So far, we have connected with other Year 7 students in 3 countries, on three continents. 

  1. St Patrick’s College, Sydney, Australia, 
  2. LANNA International School, Chiang Mai,Thailand
  3. Epsom College in England. 

Today, the students have received the first letters emailed from Australia!

MUN Special awards

This week our participation certifications have arrived from the Inspired School in Colombia. We took photographs of our 23 very proud delegates which we will display after the Easter holidays. Furthermore, our students won three special awards out of over 400 delegates who took part. Special congratulations to Luis H is Year 8 for Best Opening Speech, Lorenzo L in Yr 8 for Best Delegate and Santiago M in Year 11 for Outstanding Delegate. Well done, MUN representatives, we cannot wait for the next conference. Congratulations!

 

Congratulations to Brodie XXI Campeonato de España Junior de Natación

Many congratulations to Brodie who achieved a personal best in her 100m butterfly in a 50m pool and  finished in the top 5 for her age group in Spain.  She is  the fastest  girl  in Spain for the 100m butterfly in a 25m pool. 

We are very proud of her. We wish her good luck in her swimming races over the weekend

Red Nose Day

Thank you to Mr McIntyre for organising this event at school today!

 

King´s has got talent!

We are very excited to announce that, despite not being able to have a live show, we can present this year’s virtual version of King’s College has Talent (Primary)! All students from Year 3 to Year 6 had the option to perform by creating a video of their special talent. This opened up the door for us to see some amazing talents we would not normally be able to see in school, such as horse riding! Each act was reviewed by a class in the Primary department, and the 5-star review can be seen next to each act on the special King´s College has Talent Website!

This website is now accessible for all students from Year 3 to Year 6, through their Music Google Classroom – please ask your child to share it with you and enjoy the talents we have in school! We are sure you won’t be disappointed!

Live lecture from a geologist in UK

Year 11 and 12 students had a live lecture from a Geologist at the University of Birmingham (UK) to supplement their A level Geography studies. They learnt about the current theories of plate tectonics and volcanism. 

The Independence Project


A very successful term for Year 6 and the independence project. 

Year 6 have started to map out their transition into Year 7 and how to become Year 7 ready learners! This term we have focused on and improved our organisation skills, independent working and problem solving skills. 

In addition, we have regularly used our metacognitive skills to evaluate our own learning!

A Huge well done to our top 6 achievers who have collected more than 430 house points between them: 

Irene, Francisco Javier, Olimpia, Milo, Alejandra & Miguel Ángel

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

With best wishes,

Dawn
