Well done to the Keston swim team for the first time were the overall girls trophy winners in the Croydon Primary Swimming finals. The girls also won the medley relay shield and the freestyle relay cup.
Junior Travel Ambassadors
We have a new team of Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA’s). Many thanks to the outgoing JTA’s who helped with recording active journeys to school.
What is a JTA?
JTA’s help us to promote safe and sustainable travel to and from school. Keston Primary School have subscribed to Living Streets WOW scheme. WOW stands for Walk Once a Week.
WOW encourages pupils to travel to school actively at least once a week. If they manage to do this, pupils are rewarded with a monthly badge. The class with the most badges is awarded the WOW trophy.
What is an active journey?
An active journey is walking, cycling or scootering. For those who need to travel by car or public transport, it also includes Park and Stride. This involves parking some distance away from school or leaving public transport early in order to include a walk of at least 10 minutes.

We celebrated World book day on 9th March 2018 – a week later than planned due to the snow! I think you’ll agree that the children looked amazing and all entered into the spirit of the day with great enthusiasm.
On the 31st January 2018 Year 6 pupils went on a trip to the Globe Theatre in London. The children got the opportunity to learn more about the history of The Globe, say a line from Macbeth on the stage and they also took part in a workshop which used drama to investigate who they felt was responsible for the murder of Kind Duncan in the play Macbeth (which we have been studying this term.)
