This page offers a selection of events and activities which Kingsdown School pupils have enjoyed in the current school year.
On 21st November pupils from the Kingsdown choir and orchestra represented the school at the Southend Music Festival held at Crowstone Church.
They sang and played ‘Come on Everybody’ as their performance piece and afterwards joined with the Music Man adult performers to sing a variety of songs known to them.
They all performed exceptionally well and they won the silver award which was very well deserved.
On Friday 17th November we organised a ‘Cake and Play Tea Party’ in aid of Children in Need. We sold cakes, biscuits and cold drinks, many made by the children. There were also some wonderful cakes baked by parents and staff. Parents were invited to attend with their child’s class and various play activities for the children were made available making it a really fun and lively atmosphere. We would like to thank everyone for supporting this event.
Thanks to the ‘Happy Days’ charity, on Wednesday 15th November the whole school enjoyed M & M’s Production of the Robin Hood Pantomime.
There was plenty of interaction with the children, music and laughter and the traditional ‘oh no it isn’t’ and ‘oh yes it is’. The cast were excellent and the children loved the show.
On 2nd November we were thrilled to receive a visit from Pudsey Bear. Pudsey very kindly gave us enough Pudsey Bears and Money Boxes so that each class has their own that they can use to raise money for Children in Need.
We would like to say a big thank-you to Pudsey and his helper.
On Thursday 12th October Kingsdown School took part in a workshop led by Blade Education, as part of the Southend Schools Festival of Remembrance.
Pupils were able to make clay poppies which were exhibited in the Rose Garden below the Southend Cenotaph, the week before Remembrance Sunday, along with all the other poppies made by other schools taking part in this project.
Several classes visited the display of poppies on days dedicated to schools before it opened to the public over Remembrance weekend.
