Dear Parents 
I have begun a phased return to work this week and I have taken great pleasure in seeing the children happily engaged in their learning activities and at play. It is gratifying to know that the children have been involved in so many fun and exciting activities both in and out of school whilst studying hard to make good progress. I hope to back to full time after half term. 
The children benefitted from an excellent informative presentation from 6ST about Greek Theatre on Tuesday morning. They managed to re-create the atmosphere of the Ancient Greek Theatre which was very interactive and they was plenty of audience participation as the presented "The Frogs"! The children showed good stage presence, confidence and spoke clearly, which was much appreciated by the audience who learnt a great deal whist being thoroughly entertained.

Eureka Maths Production
On Thursday, Arty-fact Production Company came in to school and performed their ‘Eureka Production’ for Key Stage 1, in the morning, and Key Stage 2 children, in the afternoon. Year 2 and 3 also enjoyed a workshop, carried out by the actors afterwards.
 
It was a lively, fun and amusing journey through the world of science and maths that followed Archimedes and his mischievous goat, Calculus, whose job it was to help King Heiro banish pirates from the city of Saracus, in Sicily. It was packed full of Maths, but delivered in a very entertaining way and required a lot of audience participation. We had to measure the size of a crown using a tape measure and string, order decimal numbers, spot number patterns, weigh different objects using balance scales, check if objects float or sink, work out percentages and also time intervals (just to name a few of the skills that were covered!)
 
“Arty-facts appreciate being invited to King’s to perform our dynamic, exciting production called Eureka” said actor, Marcus. They also commented that they really enjoyed their time with the children and that they were extremely well behaved.
 
Some of the feedback from the children after the show:
“I enjoyed doing the maths, that was the best part about it.”
“I loved the music and the effects. It was amazing! The 3x table to Uptown Funk was great!”
“It was funny when Archimedes jumped in the bath tub and weighed the rubber duck and soap. It was clever how he used this, he could tell the crown wasn’t made of all gold because it sunk!”

Friends of King’s
Look out for our draft version of planned events for the school year, plus dates of committee meetings on the FOKIJ section of the website. We will advertise all events well in advance. We may add events to the list, so keep watching the bulletin and letters page!

Remarkably, the team went through the whole tournament without conceding a goal and were unfortunate to lose a closely contested final. The boys will now represent the town in the Cheshire Cup Finals in Crewe in January.  Well done!
