#Libraries Week

W/C 4/10/21

This week we have been celebrating National Libraries Week in School by visiting our fantastic School Library. We are lucky to have had lots of lovely new and exciting books to read, take home and enjoy. Our new School Librarians in Year 4 and Year 5 have completed their Librarian training and have worn their new badges with pride!

Classes have loved listening to stories and using puppets to retell them. Children have liked sharing books with their friends and have looked at non-fiction and fiction books. They have really enjoyed selecting a book to share and read at home with their grown-ups and brothers and sisters.

Meet our newest Librarians:

Children in Need

Kincraig took part in raising money for Children in Need. All children could come dressed in their own clothes and there was an assembly in the morning so children understood what it was about. Lots of Children in Need activities happened throughout the school and nursery.

Anti Bullying Conference

Kincraig were invited to the Anti Bullying Conference at the Village Hotel, Blackpool.

It was a very popular conference with primary and secondary schools from all over the North West represented. We took part in a Questions and Answers session as well as many other great workshops which included an anti bullying drama group with Hollywood Actor Will Poulter and TV star Sam Retford!

The Anti Bullying Ambassadors learnt many things that they will be able to take back with them into school and help others.

Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

Kincraig took part in the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. All classes made cakes that were then sold to parents and carers. It was a great success and we raised a lot of money for this important charity.

Roald Dahl Day

The whole of Kincraig was involved in Roald Dahl Day. Each class had been studying one of his books in the week prior to the day and on the day itself there were many activities throughout the school about the life of Roald Dahl and the characters in the books. Everyone in school came dressed up as someone from his books.

Arts Week focusing on The Queen

Kincraig had a fantastic Arts Week where each year group looked at a different era of the Queens life because she is our longest serving monarch. This cumulated with an Art display in the school hall and each year group performing a song from each 10 year period of her life.
