The school councils first fun raising event will be a coin trail at school! We would like each child to bring into school some spare coins on Friday 9th December. These will then be laid out at school to see how far our coin trail stretches.

Creation & Stewardship: We will think about why it is important to look after God’s wonderful world and how we can do this together.
Today, staff and children joined together in a service of remembrance and two-minute silence to remember the people who died in wars around the world and how Remembrance Day marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.
Children sang songs linked to remembrance including, 'We will remember' and 'Say a little prayer'. Year 3/4 read, 'In Flanders Field, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. Year 5/6 shared facts about Remembrance Day, Year 1/2 read a poem called 'Poppy Poppy' and Year R sang a Remembrance song. Each class made a poppy wreath and lay this at the front of the hall during the Collective Worship. It was a very special and reflective event for all involved.
We hope many of you may be able to join us on Sunday 13 November at the village remembrance event at St. Mary's, Kingsclere.
This morning, the children performed songs, readings and poems linked to Harvest. Well done children! We are proud of you all. Revd. Canon Dodie Marsden led our Harvest service with enthusiasm and energy at St. Mary’s Church.
Thank you for your generous donations that will be given to the Kingsclere Community Larder.
Sports Day 2022 Well done to all at Kingsclere CE Primary School for participating in our Sports Day on Friday. Thank you to all parents and carers for supporting and cheering on the children too!
Dear Parents/Carers, Thank you to all parents/carers that were able to join our Year 1/2 and Year 3/4 ‘Meet the Teacher’ evenings this week. We hope the information shared helps to provide further detail about your child/ren’s year ahead. Year 5 and 6 will be hosting their ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening on Thursday at 17:00 next week. As a staff team we very much aim to work in partnership with you to provide the very best support, care, learning and opportunities for your child and so please do continue to keep in touch with your child’s class teacher or myself where needed.
The sun was out at today’s Sports Day and the children were super in participating – well done to all our children and if you were able to attend thank you for encouraging and cheering the children on. If you were unable to attend, please do not worry as there are further opportunities in the near future to participate in school events.
In our collective worship this week, we announced the first group of children who had been selected to be Year 6 Play Leaders, House Captains and School Leaders. Throughout the year, all Year 6 children will be given the opportunity to play a leading role within the school and children who do not yet have a leadership role will receive an opportunity to do this before the end of the academic year. We are proud of all of our Year 6 children and thank them all for being great role models.
Thank you to Emma Rivers who led our Collective Worship this week in memory of the Queen. The children sang the National Anthem for King Charles III at the end of the service which stirred a lot of emotions in all of us.
We will see you all on Tuesday, following the Queen’s funeral on the Monday Bank Holiday.
Have a peaceful weekend.
Kind regards, Jo Messenger Acting Headteacher
We have enjoyed welcoming the children back to school this week and seeing all their enthusiasm for learning. We would like to say an extra big welcome to all our new children who started with us this week. Thank you to all parents/carers for organising your child/ren’s school uniform and ensuring they arrive on time – we are very grateful and do not underestimate the amount of preparation needed to ensure children are prepared for the school day.
Thank you to parents/carers who have volunteered to support in the library in the near future so we can ensure that it is in good working order for the children to use throughout the week. We are very lucky to have such a wonderfully resourced library and we know the children are excited to bring a book home.
We look forward to welcoming parents/carers to school for Meet the Teacher face to face meetings over the next two week – see dates in the ‘Calendar Date’ list below. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, we will be able to share a Zoom meeting code with you for you to join virtually but would strongly encourage parents/carers to attend in person, where this is possible, so you can meet your child’s class teacher and visit their classroom.
Following the sad news of the death of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we gathered as a school in Collective Worship this morning to reflect on the Queen’s life and her legacy in an age-appropriate and sensitive way. The Queen has demonstrated integrity and humility throughout her life and our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this sad time.
Wishing you a peaceful weekend.
Kind regards, Jo Messenger Acting Headteacher
On behalf of the children, parents, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Kingsclere CE Primary School. Our new school website is designed to provide you with an insight to our daily life within our vibrant school. Our picturesque village offers us a wonderful setting in which to learn!
We are a thriving rural village school at the heart of the community, with a strong family-feel. We pride ourselves on our caring and friendly ethos, where everyone is encouraged to flourish by helping to nurture and develop all talents and gifts. We have a dedicated and professional staff team who work hard to provide every child with rich, exciting learning experiences. Our enquiry curriculum offers opportunities for children to engage, question and build their own ideas in order to become the best learners that they can be. We have high expectations of our children, of their academic attainment, their effort, behaviour and attitude. Our children know that they come to our school to learn.
As a school, we focus on ensuring our children develop the skills that will equip them to succeed in all aspects of their future life. This learning is supported by our excellent resources including IT equipment, library, extensive grounds and school kitchen. It is within easy walking distance of the village church which is regularly used for services and events. Our school swimming pool is open in the summer months to support our children in being able to learn to swim.
Our vision is underpinned by our spirituality and core Christian Values of Love, Courage and Respect. The ethos of our school, our curriculum, policies and practice, and all that we put into place for our community, grow from these roots. As a Church of England school, we welcome children and families of Christian faith, of other faiths and of no faith. We explore our understanding of the Christian faith through examining Christian Values. We believe this supports our children in understanding the importance of morals and core values to become responsible citizens within our world, their decision making both now and in the future.
Thank you for visiting our website, we look forward to welcoming you to our school. Please contact the school office on 01635 298583 to arrange a visit where you can meet our children and staff, and see our exciting curriculum in action – a first-hand experience is always the best one.
