Teddy Bear's Picnic at KCA

Blue and Green Class were extremely excited about our trip to KCA for a Teddy Bear's picnic. We were very sensible getting the bus and happily sung lots of songs on the way. When we arrived we met all the Reception children at KCA and had lots of fun playing games and singing songs! We then ate the sandwiches that Green class had carefully made for us at school before getting the bus back to KISE. What a great day we had! 




Yellow Class Picnic on the moon

Yellow Class had a fantastic morning reading the story of Whatever Next, making their own jam sandwiches and then flying to the moon to have a picnic! The children were so excited and when the rest of the school returned from their picnic at KCA were eagerly telling us in English that they had been to the moon! 




Fantastic Learning in November

Green Class have had a super month in class. We have been learning lots of new vocabulary in English through our Core Texts, and have been practising writing sentences in phonics and English lessons. In our creative curriculum we have learnt about animals and their habitats and Space following our core text and also the children's interests. Today we have made Jam sandwiches for the whole school ready to take with us on our first school trip to KCA tomorrow! We are all very excited. Pictures to follow! 




A Bear Month in Nursery

Nursery have had a wonderful 'Bear' filled month with our Core Texts being Bear Hunt and Peace at Last. The children have been learning in lots of different ways, making pictures, role playing the stories, using instruments to sing a long, jumping in puddles and lots more. To end the month we will be joining the Reception classes at our sister school in Alicante to have a Teddy Bear's Picnic all together! Pictures to follow! 




Super Mark Making!

Pre Nursery Yellow Class have been exploring lots of different ways to make marks this month in KISE. Outside painting, using different materials and objects to mark with... and having lots of fun and getting messy of course!! I think we have a few artists in the making here! 




A Visit from the Ambassador

We were delighted to welcome Simon Manley, the British Ambassador to Spain to our school on the 22nd of November. We were proud to show him the progress we have made at school and how fanstastically the children are doing. Simon was 'delighted to visit the latest jewel in the King's Group crown'! 




A Spooky Halloween!

What a spooky Halloween we enjoyed at KISE! The children and teachers all came to school dressed as scary characters and we did some fantastic art activities to make the school super spooky. Our core song and core text for the week before Halloween were Incy Wincy Spider and Room on the Broom which really got us in a spooky mood! Everyone loved our Halloween party we had altogether playing apple bobbing, donuts on a string and even drawing scary faces on our afternoon snack! 




Official School Inauguration

On Tuesday the 24th October we celebrated the official opening of King’s Infant School, Elche. We welcomed Sir Roger Fry and the Mayor of Elche as well as parents to join us in our celebrations. Mateo from Yellow Class Pre Nursery, the first pupil who signed up to attend the school, was given a special mention during the ceremony and a plaque was revealed in the entrance hall to mark the occasion. We are all very proud to be part of such an exciting new venture and are eager to see the school continue to grow and prosper.




Nature is all around!

Lots of children in all classes have recently been very interested in nature and the world around them, especially when finding insects on the patio! We worked together to provide a nature garden for the children to use to observe the things that live and grow there and provide many opportunities to explore their curiosities. The children were very excited and look daily to see what they can find in the garden.




World Mental Health Day 2017

On the 10th of October KISE celebrated World Mental Health Day. We learnt lots of things like practicing meditation, some yoga moves and lots of sensory activities through art therapy. Everyone especially enjoyed the array of sensory activities the teachers had set up outside like bubble blowing, moon sand, corn flour gloop, ice painting and sensory bottles. We ended the day by drawing things that make us happy. We will definitely be repeating this day again next term!




Green fingers!

The children in KISE were very excited to get planting this month. We have turned the big space on our patio into our very own herb garden. Everyone carefully took turns smelling each plant and touching the leaves to see what they felt like. We then worked together to dig holes in the soil. When we took each plant out of its pot everyone was very fascinated by the roots underneath the soil. We then planted each plant and practiced lots of English by following instructions! We will take it in turns to water and look after our garden, come and visit when you can!




Celebration Assemblies

Last Friday we celebrated our first ever assembly in KISE. Everybody was very excited! We listened very carefully as two children were presented with a special certificate for the super work they have been doing so far in school. We then sung a song together, and as it is getting close to Halloween we sung a spooky Halloween song! Well done to Valentina in Blue Class and Anni in Green Class who were awarded certificates. We look forward to many more assemblies together in the future!




King's Infant School Elche- Our Welcome Rainbow

During our first month the children from Pre Nursery to Year 1 made lots of hand prints in many different colours. We made this into the welcome rainbow that can be seen in the entrance area of our school. We chose to have a rainbow to represent KISE to celebrate everyone's differences, working together and being kind to each other. Underneath and around the rainbow are all the members of our school family. Next time you are at school, please come and have a look! 




A super start in Reception and Year 1

In Green Class the Reception and Year 1 children have made a brilliant start to their year at KISE. New friendships have been made and lots of learning through their environment and different activities. We have started learning our phonics sounds, practising saying the sound of the letter and writing them as well. We have especially enjoyed our first Core Text- Brown Bear and were even able to make and record our own versions of the story! 




Nursery Start School!

 

Nursery have made a fantastic start to their school life at KISE and we are really happy with how the children have settled in. They are enjoying exploring their new classrooms and environments and lots of fun things to do. Their core text for the first two weeks was ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’ They are fantastic at retelling the story and knowing all the animals names and colours. They also enjoyed the fantastic activities in the classroom, especially finding the animals from the story with a magnifying glass. 





A Super First Month in Pre Nursery

 

Pre Nursery have had a super first month in their brand new school! All the children have settled in really well and are all getting used to the new routines. They have been exploring their new environments as well as enjoying some wonderful activities. One of their favourites has been exploring colour names and getting nice and messy whilst exploring it! They have also loved their ‘Squiggle While You Wiggle’ sessions developing their motor skills through dancing and mark making. Lots of smiles from everyone!
