To finish this half-term, we are going to make Friday 12th February 2021 another ‘theme day’ – in school and at home. This time our theme day will be based around ‘Kyson Challenges’ with links to lots of TV favourites – Kyson style!
This will include:
• Kyson Taskmaster – can you complete some of our Kyson Challenges?
• Kyson’s Got Talent
• The Great Kyson Bake Off
• The Great Big Kyson Quiz
And you can see some of the staff team taking part and having fun too! We are building a page on the website with all the information you will need – everything will appear later today ready to join in with tomorrow. Click here to go straight to the page.
All of the activities have been designed for everyone to have some fun at the end of a challenging half-term. Of course, if tomorrow is a tricky day for you to take part, lots of the activities would be a great distraction over half-term.
Red January 2021
Well done to everyone who has completed any physical activity in order to keep themselves going this month. We are one of the first Primary Schools in the country to become involved in the RED January campaign and in order to celebrate this – Friday will be our RED January Theme Day. There will be no remote learning plans for any year group on Friday – the theme day is designed as a way to have a break, recharge the batteries, focus on physical and mental health – and have some fun along the way.
As part of the RED January campaign, we will be making a donation on behalf of the school to the Sport in Mind charity from our school community. If you wish to make your own donation you can find out more on the charity’s webpage https://www.sportinmind.org/
Please find attached some suggestions for activities your children might like to get involved in on Friday. There is no obligation to do all or any of the activities – find things that you and your children will enjoy – or think of your own. It would be great to hear what you have been up to – email@example.com
Some of the events include:
• Mr Ward’s Home Olympic Challenges
• Mrs Leabon’s Sports Masterclasses
• Designing trainers and sports kit
And the day will finish with the chance to join in with a game of Live Kyson Family Bingo!
We hope the children will find something that they can enjoy during the day. If your circumstances make it tricky to join in during Friday – please feel free to adapt and take part in events on a different day.
Our Festive Art theme day was held on 15th December 2020. There were two focuses to the day:
Christmas art work and decorations: This was an opportunity for the children to create their very own Christmas pieces of art and decorations to display in class and take home. Children were free to choose and develop the masterpieces that they wished to create.
Christmas door competition: Kyson held its very own Christmas Door Competition. Teachers worked with their class to transform their classroom door into something fabulously festive! Mr and Mrs Claus (Mr Gunson and Mrs Hardwicke) visited the classrooms to judge the doors and took photos of the finished doors (see gallery below).
"Come Fly with Me"
We enjoyed another successful theme day today this time focusing on countries of the world. The children moved around the school in mixed age groups ‘visiting’ a different country at each stop. There was plenty of opportunity for the children to learn about locational and physical geography, art, dance, history and the culture of each destination. The children will bring home their ‘passports’ from the day so they can talk about the places they visited.
Kyson Travels the World
We're Going on Bear Hunt
On Friday 18th February 2019 we held a day celebrating 30 years of 'We're Going On a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. Everyone took part in designing bears to form our own 'Bear Trail' around the school. We also filmed ourselves retelling the story.
