    Dear Parents/Carers

    We have been issued with more lateral flow tests  – the large boxes of 20.  We will be giving them out to the children on Monday 24th January (1 box per family). 

    We are aware that some of our families already have a stock and do not need any more at the present time so, if that is the case, please give your box back to the class teacher or hand into the school office when given to your child on Monday.

    If you urgently need some test before the weekend, please pop into the school at pick up time today to collect your box.

    Thank you for your help.

  • Kingston Council wants to hear from young people on designs for the new leisure centre!

    date posted: 09/01/22

    Kingston Council has been working on plans for a new community leisure centre and public space on the Kingfisher site in Kingston town centre. The designs have been shaped by feedback from people across the borough - and now they want to hear from children and young people on the latest proposals!
     
    The new centre will include a 25-metre swimming pool, a splash deck for younger children, a teaching pool, a climbing wall, a five-a-side rooftop pitch, a sports hall and modern gym, as well as a cafe and playground.
     
    The council wants to make sure the new centre and surrounding public space is fun for all ages and family friendly. It's also important it meets the highest possible sustainability standards and is accessible for all - as requested by local people in the latest summer engagement.
     
    The team working on the proposals is keen to hear from young people and wants to encourage all those who live, study, work and visit Kingston to look at the latest designs and take part in a young people’s survey which can be filled out here: https://bit.ly/3dpvuf7.
     
    The survey will remain live until Sunday 16 January, but you can contact the team with feedback at any time by emailing: Transformkingston@kingston.gov.uk.

  • The Hour of Code 2021

    date posted: 18/12/21

    This week was Computer Science Education Week 2021! In light of this, we have been taking part in the "Hour of Code". The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.

    The ‘Hour of Code’ for Computer Science Education Week 2021 this week was a success! Through a range of puzzles the children were able to use sequencing, conditionals and loops to create algorithms with code blocks.  They learnt that programming is neither difficult nor boring – but a powerful tool they can use to bring their imagination to life!

    Reception children had their Hour of Code using Busy Things which you can access from home through LGFL using the children’s personal Usernames and Passwords. Launch Busy Things using the link below and log in using their “Normal USO Login”. Reception – Understanding the World – Technology – Helicopter Rescue.

    Busy Things access through LGFL

    I enjoyed it a lot! It was a challenge!

    Year 1 enjoyed coding through “Candy Quest” and Year 2 were engrossed in “Dragon Blast”, both accessible from home through https://hourofcode.com/uk/learn.

    I’d never tried it before but I went up to level 11!

    I was a little bit frustrated when I got it wrong but I persevered, debugged it and got it right!

    A big well done to you Burlington for successfully completing the Hour of Code 2021!

  • Spark Book Awards: The 12 Books of Christmas

    date posted: 18/12/21

    Last year you all helped choose the winner of the Spark Book Awards, ‘Avocado Asks’ by watching Mrs Davies read the 4 shortlisted books online and voting for your favourite during lockdown. Exciting News! The Spark Book Awards are starting again right now. From the 1st December they are announcing a shortlisted book a day. These are all great high quality books and brilliant ideas for Christmas presents. Here are the final 4 books which have been shortlisted: 

    Everyone knows how a day goes. The sun rises and shines above us with his glorious smile. At the end of the day, he disappears over the horizon. But what  people don't know is what the sun gets up to after he goes home . . .

    Ten very foolish teachers have missed the last bus home. But LOOK - a shortcut through the forest! They'll be back in time for tea! Off they skip, unaware that in the woods a hungry horde of mischievous and hilariously goofy monsters is waiting...

    Come on a magical journey of wonder and discovery from misty seaside shorelines to cold ice capped seas. This beautiful tale of friendship between a child and a whale invites us to consider our responsibilities towards the environment and makes a direct plea to end plastic pollution.

    Billy's family is not what you'd call ordinary. His mums won't listen to NORMAL music. They love to sing sea shanties and dance jigs in the lounge. Their clothes are highly unusual, they have a rude parrot for a pet, and their taste in house design is, well . . . FISHY. Billy wishes his family could be more like everyone else's. Until a swashbuckling adventure changes everything!

    Click below for a summary of all 12 shortlisted books:

    The 12 Books of Christmas

    These books will all be available in school and will be read to the children. You can find out more at:

    Spark! School Book Awards

Reading together is a great way to bond as a family and we hope you enjoy this book together. 

  • Staying Safe Online

    date posted: 28/11/21

    Squid Game is a South Korean television series streaming on Netflix. The plot centres on a group of adult debtors, thieves, and gamblers competing against each other in a series of childhood games for a grand cash prize. Since its release in September 2021, Squid Game has become number one across 90 different countries in Netflix’s ranking of most watched TV shows. It is rated by the TV-MA – TV Mature Audience Only. This program is specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore unsuitable for children under 17. Parents and carers should be aware that video content from this show is found on various social media platforms such as TikTok and Youtube and given the popularity of the games in the show, developers have made various mini-games based on Squid Game on Roblox and other gaming platforms. We would like to ask that you are extra vigilant about the content your child is accessing when online and to make sure that parental controls are set on all shared devices. Children should not be watching any content linked to Squid Game.

    For more information on how to keep your children safe online, please visit our web page: 

    Keeping Your Child Safe

  • You said, we did...

    date posted: 28/11/21

    Following feedback from parents, we have decided to go back to the old format of booking after school clubs. This half term we used the booking option on School Gateway which was on a first come first serve basis. Lots of parents commented that going forward this may not give the majority of children a chance of getting a place on a club. Therefore for next term we will be asking parents to email their choice of club along with a second and third choice as back up. We will allocate spaces manually for the more popular clubs to give children who did not previously get a place a chance to take part.

  • Switch Off Fortnight

    date posted: 21/11/21

    The children in Year 1 and 2 have been learning about what took place during COP 26. They were encouraged to think about what they could do as individuals to help the planet. They each wrote a personal pledge on a leaf. They were very reflective and did a great job. 

    The leaves contributed to The Forest of Promises created by children from many other schools across the world.

    A recurring theme within the pledges was turning off lights when not needed and conserving electricity. For this reason, we will be taking part in 'Switch Off Fortnight'. 

    We are asking you to support your child in switching off electrical appliances when they are not in use. This includes those appliances that can be switched off at the mains rather than being left on in the standby mode. The adults and children will also be doing this in school. In school, we will be focusing on the financial cost and the cost to the planet of wasting electricity and gas. Thank you in advance for your support.

  • School Gateway

    date posted: 13/11/21

    Our local branch of Lloyds Bank will be closing very soon which will make it harder for us to pay in cash. We would like to ask all parents to download the School Gateway app and pay for items via the app where possible. Thank you.

    If you have not already downloaded the School Gateway App, please do this immediately. This is our communication and payment system for the school so it is really important that you have activated your account. We will use this system to send emergency text messages and all clubs, trips, Acorns, nursery fees etc can be paid using the app. If you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to ask the school office.

  • COP26

    In our Good Deeds assembly this week, we talked to the children about COP26 and explained the reasons why this meeting takes place. The children were asked to think about climate change and what we as a school and community can do to help make a difference. Next week, the children will each make a pledge around what they can do to help. Please encourage your child to discuss these issues at home with their families.

    Our children have been learning more about the Indian festival of Diwali and the story behind it.  Earth Song came in to do a special Diwali workshop with Year 1 and Year 2, involving a puppet show and Indian drums.  The children really enjoyed it and later on Friday they were able to do rangoli colouring.
