Refugee Day with Year 5

Today is  'Refugee Day', and to mark the day Year five watched a presentation from the 'School Council' in assembly, following a family that fled Syria and the fighting, to seek a safer place to live.

Year five then watched a film showing a girl who was all alone in her country and how she had to survive. She went from place to place until one kind family accepted her into their home. The task set for Year 5 was to have a rucksack and to pack it with the things they wanted to take on their journey. We had everything from; teddy bears, torches,batterries, food, money, clothes, pillows,compass,bottled water,sleeping bag, blankets and photographs.

Alot of the children couldn't imagine what it would be like to be on their own, with no friends, no family, how would they survive? A good class discussion took place to hear their opinions and ideas.

Thankfully this was just a lesson but the children value each day with their families and friends. Here are some pictures of their ideas .100 3976

School Volley Ball Competition

WOW!!!!

What an exciting day at King David School today. The school held a 'sit down volley ball competition'.  Each class was split into teams of five or six. They played volley ball for ten minutes, in which they had to score as many points as possible. The team with the highest amount of points went onto play the class in their section.

Year5 - Year6

Year3 - Year4

  Year1 - Year2 

The atmoshere was amazing, with each class shouting and cheering on their classmates. Good sportsmanship and excellent behaviour both on and off court made it a fantastic competition. There are photographs on our school web site and twitter. 

A huge than you to our Bronze Ambassadors who helped to organise and referee the games. 

World Book Day

What a fantastic morning. With the whole school dressed up for World Book Day, the atmoshere has been amazing. Staff have dressed up in the Peter Pan theme. The school pairs up the classes, and year 5 paired up with year 2. The year 2 children had started writing their stories in their English lessons. Year 5 then helped them to finish them and turn them into story books. They worked hard on the writing, with year 5 supporting, as they have been writing character descriptions in their English lessons. Have a look at some of the story books that they have produced.
