National Poetry Day

National Poetry Day 3rd October 2019
 
This year we celebrate 25 years of National Poetry Day, a British celebration of poetry which takes place every October. National Poetry Day was founded in 1994 by the charity Forward Arts Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate excellence in poetry and increase its audience. Here at King’s College, Murcia we enjoyed, discovered and shared a range of poetry in both Primary and Secondary.
 
Examples include Year 4 who focused on ‘honesty’ and wrote some lovely poems in pairs and groups. They then went on to play a game of truth or dare! Some dares included going to see Mrs Stackhouse and pretending to be a chicken, and wearing your shoes on your hands for five minutes!! This lead to writing acrostic poems about truth.
 
Year 2 shared the poems they wrote on ‘The Great Fire of London’ with the Year 1 class; a lovely example of reading and sharing poetry.
 
In KS3 Year 7 had some great performance poetry lessons which they thoroughly enjoyed. They also looked at the concept of ‘truth or dare’ and a poem by the same name. Years 8 and 9 looked at two poems; one on the climate change activist Greta Thumberg, which lead to great discussion and poems about topics students feel passionate about. The other was called ‘Magic’ by Joshua Seigal. Pupils wrote about things that make them happy in life - magic - as well as a few things that they find tragic! 
 
It was also great to see other departments get involved. In Maths the teachers shared a poem to read out as a class at the start of each lesson. They also had  a brief chat Mathematical truths too. And finally, in Year 8 PSHE they wrote some lovely poems on how they cope with stress - truthfully! It was great to see so many teachers and pupils embrace the power of poetry.

Flood Victims Charity Collection

After the 'gota fria' and terrible flooding the resulted in our region, the children wanted to help others that had been affected by the floods. So, we decided to ask for donations from the local community and our parents. We managed to collect a variety of items that would hopefully help in a little way.  We delivered these to Los Alcazares and they were greatly received and distributed to the families that needed them most.  Our Year 2s wrote letters to some of the families affected.
 
The children would like to thank you for your kindness and generosity. They have learnt a lot about human suffering and kindness these past few weeks.

AFACMUR Charity Donation

 

The King’s College Murcia annual road race raised over 1500 euros for charity in 2019. Each year, the school selects a charity and this time we looked locally at AFACMUR. This charity, based in Murcia, supports families after their children have been diagnosed with cancer. The support ranges from psychological help, to financial help including hospital schemes, facility improvement and educational classes. The donation was made by Junior M., a sports leader, and Emily M. who won the Year 4 race. We hope to work with AFACMUR again in the future, as much of the work we do at King’s College Murcia could benefit these families.
