  • Welcome to Wren Class - Kingswood Primary

    December 2017: Today was Christmas Jumper Day. We wore our favourite Christmas jumpers and donated £1 to charity.  November 2017: In Year 1, we had a special visitor from the NHS who taught us how to wash our hands effectively. We learnt that there are 8 different steps to washing our hands and we were shown how to do each one. Our grown ups got involved too! Some children were chosen to put their knowledge to the test where they had to follow the 8 steps and then their hands were checked under a special light. This special light was able to show us whether we had washed our hands properly. October 2017: Today in Year 1 we had a special visitor who came to tell us the story of Anancy the Spider because our topic this term is 'On Safari'. We used animal props and drums to help us join in with the story. We had so much fun learning about Anancy and his adventures. We also learnt about morals and the moral of this story was that you should never take anything from someone without asking. September: In Wren class we all represent different coloured crayons that are unique and special, but when we come together as a class, the picture is complete!
