LETTER FROM HEAD TEACHER Kay Seward

KIS Headteacher

Excerpts

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.

Art Day at KIS

KIS Art Day DaliYour imagination is your greatest tool. In KIS we’ve been learning about Surrealist art work, art abstracts and surprises.

 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.

The story was quite appropriate as the pupils’ last study topic was Life Cycles
