What a exciting week it has been at King’s Soto. Year 1 students enjoyed a special ‘Castle Day’ this week to ‘bring to life all that they have been learning about in their Topic work on castles. We believe that the best way to remember the details of a topic and for it to become locked in our memories is to emerge ourselves into the theme. Year 5 students have been learning about the layers of the atmosphere and annotated the features of each region, in their Ciencias Sociales classes. Finally, scroll to the secondary page to take a look at our Year 12 IB Visual Arts students enjoying an outdoor sketching activity!

Last week of term! As we prepared for our last week before the holidays, the Christmas spirit was all around us. Primary and Secondary worked together to deliver our Christmas boxes to one of our charities: Bomberos Ayudan. Our geography classrooms were filled with innovative projects created by our Year 9 students. They recently finished learning about the Anthropocene and had to design a piece of technology which could help to ‘return’ our planet to a more natural state and reverse some of the harm which humans have done. Our Year 8 Math classes were taken over by a very special visit from Enrique the air traffic controller!
