On Wednesday the 5th of April, Miss Cunningham and Mrs Turner rewarded their 11 students who participate in a weekly social skills group to the Geek Retreat in Newcastle city centre. The group left in the morning and enjoyed a picnic lunch at the Hippy Green near Monument before walking down to the Geek Retreat for teas, coffees, snacks and more!
There were so many different things to do — from Xbox to board games to reading comics to relaxing and having a nice chat. All eleven were very well-behaved and made Kingsmeadow very proud. Can’t wait for next year’s end-of-year social skills trip!
Today our REAL students took a walk to the Metrocentre to surprise shoppers with acts of kindness. This was all part of their current project in REAL which has the driving question ‘Can Kindness Change The World?’ Students have studied different religions and looked at where kindness fits in within their teachings and have also been reading the novel ‘Pay It Forward’ by Catherine Ryan Hyde.
We are in the process of building an Alumni for the school, showing members who are interested in supporting the school and how they can offer support.
