During this week at Keston we spent time thinking about what makes each one of us special. Throughout the week, pupils were engaged in a range of activities. These included wearing odd socks to school, singing ‘The Odd Sock Song’, cooking and tasting food from different cultures and creating a colourful ‘odd sock’ with a partner.
The aim of the week was to help build pupil self-esteem and confidence, as well as encourage kindness and understanding. Pupils were also reminded of what they could do if they had worry or concern.

We had a wonderful day taking part in a traditional tale workshop, where everyone was able to dress up and get involved. Because we were so lucky with the weather we were able to eat our lunch outside and enjoy the castle grounds. After lunch our previous learning came into play as we were able to look for clues to how the castle looked hundreds of years ago. It was very exciting to see the moat and where the portcullis and arrow slits were.
Everyone had a fabulous day and the children were superb ambassadors for our school.
On Tuesday 12 November 2019, four children from Year 5 attended a Maths Challenge competition. It was hosted by Old Palace School in Croydon. There were 8 teams participating and they had to complete various maths challenges throughout the afternoon. Keston ran out overall winners. Well done Keston.
Thank you for kindly representing the school and laying our wreath at the Remembrance Sunday Service at St John’s Church this year.
