Netball / Football at Kingsacre

Well done everyone who took part at Kingsacre today. The netballers did well - lost one, won one, drew two - and narrowly missed going through to the play offs. The footballers all came back with a medal - third place for the older team, second place for the younger team. Big thanks to everyone for their support and special [...]

Science with a Comic Relief Theme

We talked about how some people in the world don't have access to clean water and how Comic Relief money can help. We decided to see if we could use what we have learned about filtering and separating mixtures to get clean(er) water. We found out that although cotton wool pads were the most effective material we used to filter, [...]

There was a great turnout at last night's Open Parent Forum.  The Governors and I wanted to provide our community with information about UK schools' budgets and how the proposed changes and current system affects our school.

20-minute free-write… ✍✍✍

"Once, there was a city who came across a beach."Sometimes, it's nice to just give children some free time to write what they want.  ✍With the openness of the word 'beach,' no grammar or success criteria requirement and an allowance of 20 minutes, this is what Isabel came up with.I really liked this and could picture the two of them [...]
