Kingston Primary School

WORLD BOOK DAY 2022!

What a wonderful day celebrating books! We all love reading and getting into books -  they often open unexpected doors! We started the day with a huge celebration assembly talking about our costumes and books. We then listened to the amazing World Book Day 2022 song together with a story by the  the author Joanne Nadin - 'The worst class in the world'.   The school then spent time reading their favourite books. Throughout the day, teachers went into different classes and shared their favourite books with the children who learnt about some of our most amazing authors. What a an incredible day!

 

 

Here are some pictures from the day:

Siobhan Meade, a Blind Vlogger Visits Kingston Primary School

On the 1st February 2022, Siobhan Meade, a blind vlogger came to Kingston to speak with some of our children about what it is like to be blind. Siobhan was amazing and welcomed all types of questions from our children. Helping to educate them about visual impairment. This was a great learning experience for the children and it supported our passion for diversity and mutual respect. The filming was such a success that the Guide Dogs charity posted on their social media about it, which helped to raise awareness of such an important topic. The story even made several major news companies and even appeared on Sky News. What a way to spread an important message and what amazing stars we have at Kingston Primary School.

Big apologises to Mrs Newell for the filming company getting her name wrong.

Max Whitlock Visits Kingston Primary School

On the 18th June, Max Whitlock, the double Olympic champion, came to Kingston to speak with many of our young children about sports, healthy living and their future goals. 

 

Max was absolutely brilliant with the children and asked them lots of questions but our children were just as amazing and asked him lots of hilarious and probing questions. Max shared his Olympic medals with the children and even showed them some of his amazing gymnastics. Two of our lovely children even got to have lunch with him!
