Here at Kings Rise Academy, we can’t believe the summer term is finally here and we are two thirds of the way through the school year. Before we tell you about the exciting things we have to come, let’s look back on the final week of our spring term.

KRA finished the term with our famous Easter Bonnet parade! We all made our own hats and paraded them through the playground.

We asked competition winner Shay what he thought. “My hat was so tall that I nearly fell over! I even won an Easter egg for my design,” – Shay is 10 years old. The week was filled with egg hunts, card making, and learning all about Easter.

We even had five new additions to our KRA family: five very noisy ducks we hatched from eggs and now roam around our Kraken gardens.

Coming up this term, we are looking forward to the Year 6 SATS. These tests are the culmination of all the hard work pupils have done in Year 6, not to mention the rest of their time in primary school.

As well as tests, here are some of the exciting events and trips happening this term: Evacuees Day, Sports Day, local walks & fruit tasting, New Outside library, The Black Country Museum trip, Cadbury World tour, and finally, a trip to Tudor World.
