Year 3/4 had a fantastic Grounds Day last week linked to our enquiry topic ‘Why is Kingsclere twinned with Cormicy?’ After a walk around our own village, the children compared what is similar and what is different between Kingsclere and Cormicy.
A huge well done to the 68 children from Key Stage 2 who took part in the 25th Anniversary Cross Country Event at Newbury Showground. Thank you also to all volunteers who helped us supervise the children at this event. Over 1500 children took part form across the county. The children represented the school beautifully and displayed our school values of Love, Courage, and Respect wonderfully. Well done children we are very proud of you!
The children really enjoyed showing off their great World Book Day outfits! There were so many different interpretations of books characters! We equally enjoyed looking at the stories in a jar that the children had created at home.
Inter school football tournament at Park House Secondary School On Monday, some of our Year 3 and 4 children took part in a 7-a-side interschools' football tournament at Park House School. They played 4 matches and displayed some great teamwork in all games, taking turns in different positions and challenging themselves in a tough competition. The courage that the children showed was second to none and we could not be prouder. We have not made it through to the finals but we wish those teams who did the best of luck and look forward to playing again next year. Thank you to the parents and Mrs Clarke who helped keep spirits high and well done to the whole team for your teamwork courage and resilience.
Smartie the penguin helped Ash class begin to learn how to navigate the internet today. His story helped us to realise we can have lots of fun online, but that we sometimes need to be careful. We learnt a useful song; Before you tap or click, you’d better stop and think and tell someone! Very good advice for us all from Smartie the penguin!
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.
