School Collection & Gates - Transition Weeks from 11 July 2022

Platinum Jubilee Picnic

Thank you to all of our families who came to enjoy our picnic. It was so lovely to have the school community together to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. 

Useful and kind mark presentation

Today we were presented with our Useful and Kind certificate. As a school we have worked really hard over the past year to develop our useful and kind behaviours so we are very proud to receive it. It is especially lovely to hear when the children show useful and kind behaviours outside of school such as raising money for charity. Please keep letting us know of the fantastic things the children achieve when they are thinking of other people and the wider world. 

World Book Day 2022

We had a fantastic day celebrating our love for reading on World Book Day. We saw some fantastic book character costumes in EYFS and KS1 and some wonderful  potatoes in KS2.The children really did impress us with their creativity. Thank you for your support in providing costumes and best dressed potatoes. The book sale organised by the FOKRPS was a huge success and meant every child was able to choose a new book to read. Many classes managed to meet up with their buddy classes to enjoy their new books together. Thank you for all of your donations, support and to the mystery readers who really helped to keep the excitement of reading alive! 

Time Capsule

Year five had the privilege of representing Kempston Rural in burying a time capsule at the Storey Homes development on Martell Drive. Organised by the building company, the children were given the task of thinking of items to put in the time capsule that would represent our school and what life has been like for us in recent times.  We had some very thoughtful ideas including letters to the future, COVID tests, toys we currently play with, a map of the school, a school dinner menu, a school newsletter, a piece of our tartan uniform, popular books, a newspaper and information about popular apps, television programmes and the price of food. With the help of the children and the Mayor of Bedford, the time capsule was buried and is due to be opened in 2092. I wonder whether any of our children will still be living in the local area when it is opened. I wonder if they will have grandchildren who attend KRPS. The site can be found on Orchard Drive, just off Martell Drive and is marked with a plaque under the walnut tree if you would like to visit.
