This year in particular has been a very important one for us, as we have seen so many changes within the school. We have installed air conditioning throughout, built and furnished a wonderful outdoor area for both Nursery and Reception classes, moved the year groups around and opened up classrooms to allow the pupils more space, which has in turn helped to improve our already creative and exciting learning environments, introduced swimming lessons, games activity days, installed a climbing frame in the hall and built a football pitch!
Of course the major feature of this year was our very successful ISI inspection report in which we achieved the highest possible grades.
We focused on Dali´s paintings and the children enjoyed the assembly taken by Miss Maulo and Miss Barbara, who explained that Dali loved to paint and draw and how his work was hard to understand as all his ideas came from his dreams.
All year groups painted their portraits using the Surrealism Style.
There is still time to enrol your child(ren) in many of the Summer Camps that will be taking place in our schools across Madrid this summer.
If you are interested to receive more information, please contact King’s College International who will be happy to assist you, as well as explain the different course types and prices.
Goldfish class chose to re-enact the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar into a show which wowed parents and teachers.
The story was quite appropriate as the pupils’ last study topic was Life Cycles
The Turtle and Dolphin classes performed an end of year show for parents on the 11th of June. The show was based on two stories that the children really like “We’re going on a bear hunt” by Michael Rosen and “The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson.

Year Two Lions and Tigers performed their fantastic Leaver’s Show “The Lion King” on Thursday the 12th of June at the Fundación Sindrome de Down auditorium. Mrs Seward says: “The children and staff have really outdone themselves this year and the shows have been amazing. I always think that they cannot get any better, but each term they do.”

Miranda from Year 2 won a prestigious art competition organised by IAPS earlier this year. “We were very proud of Miranda as there were entries from all over the world.” says Mrs Seward.
