Our Amazing Readers at King’s Hill


As part of our drive to promote reading for pleasure and getting our children to love reading, the children took part in a reading challenge! They were involved in a sponsored read for a week to read as many books as they could, to raise money.
The children worked hard and raised an incredible amount, in fact a total of:
We are so proud of them all!


The Usborne Books Company will be donating an additional 60% of the money children raised which means we have a total of £2,136 to spend on new books!
The children also took part in a competition. Where is the most bizarre place you can be found reading?

King's Hill FC were once again invited to the Walsall Schools Kids Cup 2023. This year we decided to take the opportunity to have a mix of two year groups. It was an inspiring and a fun-filled event!

Coming into the tournament as quiet 'underdogs', we opened our account by brushing aside Little Bloxwich with excellent team goals finished by our top-goalscorer Kiesse and a long-range effort from Anxhelo. Through the course of the afternoon, Amos' trickery proved too much for his opponents at times. 'Magic' Mateuz  grew game by game pulling the strings in midfield. R'Kye was constantly weaving through the traffic; Jenson's tenacity and pressure on the defences was to be admired and Akaal's rock-solid defending earnt him a Man of the Match performance against St. Anne's. Quinton was a maestro defender using his experience to keep the defence watertight. Joshua's debut heroics in goal saved us several times and ensured that we got the deserved points on the board.

As the afternoon progressed, we went on to win 3 games in total, 1 draw and 1 loss. Overall, a fantastic afternoon and well led by Mr. Waring on his managerial debut who led the team to second place in the league table. Well done King's Hill FC!
