Our fun and energetic classes are a fast-paced introduction to Rugby where the child will learn about shapes, colours, numbers and counting, they will be encouraged to work independently as well as enjoying team games. Finding space, looking after the ball, scoring tries, running with the ball in two hands and general agility and balance are just some of the things the children will learn during their time with us.  All the equipment used in these classes has been specifically designed and selected for young children. We use sponge foam balls so the children can catch, pass and kick their goals with confidence. Its colourful, it's lively and it's guaranteed to brighten up anyone’s day.

We understand that the extended stories to accompany the ORT books can often go missing. The questions below are generic higher order thinking questions to ensure engagement with the text. These are not specific and could be applied to all ORT books.
When and where did the story take place?   Who are the main characters?   What does the main character look like?   How does the book begin?   Where in the book would you find...?   Can you think of another story character similar to a character in this book?   Have you had any similar experiences?   Which text/story is better? Why?   Which parts of the text could be improved?   Did you like the ending – why/why not?   Who would you recommend this to?  
What is the book about?   Which part did you like/dislike – why?   Can you explain why...?   If you were the main character, how would you have reacted to this?   What would this character think?   Are there any other reasons why *** might have happened?

Button Box 4th Event
With term now being back in full swing we’re hearing concerns that parents are driving really fast along Waverley Road and Park Road at drop off and pick up times. It’s a 20mph speed limit and there are concerns that  parents drive far too fast along both of the roads. As there are young children living in these streets, we are asking parents to slow down to 20mph from the start of the roads. The concern has also been mentioned to the local police.

Parent Council Meeting Agenda Wednesday 20th September 2017
Dear Parents and Carers We will be discussing this important document at the next Parent Council Meeting ... par7-ReportingParentsCarersGuidance300117 Please feel very welcome to come along at 7pm on Wednesday 20th September. Access via Door A. Kind regards Ms Limerick
The core elements of our dress code can be found on our school website. Please let us know if you have any problems accessing this information via this link ...  http://kingspark.mgfl.net/school-uniform/ Although the emblem gives a personal school touch, there is no requirement for parents to purchase clothing from Border Embroideries and parents are free to opt for the similar coloured items available in the shops. With regard to the house colours for t-shirts, the website also states that a white-t shirt is also an option. The school does benefit from commission made from the Border Embroideries sales but I certainly don't want parents to feel under any pressure to use the company. Ms Limerick thinks it might be useful to have a full consultation with parents about the school dress code early next year so that we can then update and clarify things via the website and make changes to any leaflets in time for parents ordering items for session 18/19.
