Park and Stride Map

Park and Stride Kingswood Primary School's Park and Stride Map launched We are really pleased to launch our Park and Stride map, which was created with our pupils and Living Streets. It shows a 5 minute 'no parking' zone around both school sites and suggestions for alternative parking. The aim is to make our school gates safer, ease congestion and promote physical activity. For those of you who drive to school, why not Park and Stride? For more information, click on the picture below.

Year 5 Residential Trip 2017

Day 4 We've just finished our last activites and are starting the journey home. Four days have flown by! Day 3 'Happy Birthday Jarrod! What a great place to turn 10! Day 2 "We've all had a great night's sleep and woken up ready for another jam packed day. We've enjoyed a traditional French breakfast. "All safe and well" Coach 1 (Kingswood Hummingbird and Toucan and Paxton) We've enjoyed fantastic weather today and the children were fascinated by the underground caves at Grottes des Naours. The workshops illustrating aspects of ancient culture at Parc Samara were enjoyed by all. Looking forward to another fun filled day tomorrow! Coach 2 (Kingswood Kestrel and Sandpiper and Elmwood) What a beautiful day in the sunshine we have had! We have wandered along the trenches; stared into No-Man's Land; eaten ice creams in the sun; dressed up as a Tommy and adored some new-born piglets. We're having a wonderful time! Day 1 Albert, La Somme "Arrived safe and sound after a smooth early crossing! Going to enjoy the beach and sea life centre now." We've had a wonderful day today. We had great fun on the beach in the sunshine, visited the sea life centre and had a nice meal in the restaurant. All the children are worn out and tucked up in bed!

Year 5 Residential Trip 2017

Year 5 Residential Trip 2017 Day 1 What a fantastic start to our trip! The coach journey was excellent and it was a real adventure to be in a coach, on a train whilst under the sea! Our teachers were so well organised that we were able to take advantage of an earlier train which meant we could have more time in France. We arrived in Boulogne and were thrilled to be able to get off the coach and stretch our legs. Once off the coach, we went to an adventure playground to have our lunch and a play before attending The Nausica Sea Life Centre. The Sea Life Centre was absolutely amazing. We saw all sorts of wonderful creatures including sea horses, sharks, jelly fish and even a dancing seal that AJ named Jeff. Our adults were really impressed with us because the staff within the Sea life Centre were commenting on how well behaved we were and the kind manners we showed. After all of the excitement we were secretly happy to be heading towards our final destination. When the coach pulled up outside our accommodation, the bus erupted with a loud roar of "yay", "wow", "look at our mansion!". After dinner, we had a range of exciting evening activities. Our group did climbing. We enjoyed cheering each other on and challenging each other to reach past our highest climbing point. Written by Glenbrook and Fenstanton children in Group A. Day 2 On day two we went to visit Wellington Quarry in Arras. We went through the tunnel that the French, British and the Kiwis (aka the people from New Zealand) built. After we went to a famous battlefield and looked at the German and British trenches. We then went to The Vimy Ridge Memorial, learning about all the missing Canadian Soldiers. Later we went to a German cemetery and looked at the differences between the German soldier cemetery and the typical soldier cemetery. The difference is that the German soldiers cross had to be grey because of the guilt of starting the war and causing so much pain. Written by Oren & Niyah Y5 Hummingbird Class Day 3 We went to the picturesque city of Rouen, where we visited one of the many Notre Dame's in France. Notre Dame means ‘Our lady’. We visited the cathedral and looked and discussed it’s decorative appearance. We loved looking and learning about the stained glass windows and how they had to be carefully reconstructed after the city was bombed. In 1999 the cathedral’s spire fell and damaged the roof. Inside you could see where parts of the roof had to be replaced. In addition to the cathedral, we learned a lot about Joan of Arc. She believed that she received a message from God to lead the French to victory! Joan of Arc was involved in a famous part of history which is referred to as "The Hundred Years' War". At the young age of 19, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake by the English. Later, we had an opportunity to buy some souvenirs to remember the special city of Rouen.
