Well done Andy & Liam!!

This morning (Wednesday 20th September) all the children and staff of Kilsby School waited outside the school gates to greet Andy Martin & his son Liam (who just for today accompanied his dad for the stretch of walk from Rugby to Kilsby).

Since 1st September, Mr Martin has walked all the way from John O'Groats to Kilsby and then will continue all the way down to Lands End in aid of Parkinsons. The whole 900 mile route will take him most of the month of September. He took a detour this morning especially to walk to school with his son Liam.

When they both appeared round the corner, everyone shouted and cheered them on.  Mr Martin stopped for a brief photo shoot then took a well earned coffee break at school and left to continue his travels, aiming for Harbury and finishing up at Ettington, Stratford by this evening.

If you would like to help Andy reach his target of £10,000 for Parkinsons please visit:  or you can follow his progress on:

We all wish him the very best for the rest of his journey.

Forest School

Cherry class had an exciting time with Miss Smith last week, taking part in Forest School sessions every afternoon.

They have been using natural materials only for their art and they constructed frames to display their masterpieces out of sticks and rope.  These were constructed by using a clove hitch and a square lashing knots.

Here are a few photographs taken during those sessions:

Reception Class

Thursday 7th September

We welcome our new Reception children!

Our 16  new Reception children are settling into school life very well in Miss Smith's class (Chestnut).  They all have been allocated a 'Buddy'  from Maple class ( a Year 5 or 6 child) who helps support them when they go out onto the large playground and at lunchtimes. They have been doing lots of interesting activities inside and outside their new classroom.  Here are a few photos taken on their first day:

Leavers Assembly

Friday 21st July

This morning parents and grandparents were invited to join us for the Year 6 Leavers Assembly.

As always it was a moving occasion.  The 17 Year 6 children put on a sketch, and spoke of their most memorable moments during their time at Kilsby Primary.  We even had a glimpse of some of their baby and toddler photos, and also some photos of them when they started in Reception and on through their years at Kilsby.

The KSA bought them all a leaving gift of a special hoody with their name and the year 2017 on the back, they all put them on and looked great!

We also said 'Goodbye' to Miss Begum our student teacher who has been working with Mrs Newton in Maple class, with the Year 5's and 6's during the last year.  She starts her new job in a school in Northampton in September, and we wish her good luck and all the very best.

We wish all the Year 6's every happiness and success in their new secondary schools and their futures.  We will miss them all!

Summer Concert

On the afternoon of Wednesday 19th July, all the children got together to perform their Summer Concert for their parents and grandparents.

There were performances from the guitars, piano and violins, a dance routine and songs by each class.  At the end of the concert Mrs Evans was presented with 'Thank You' cards from the staff and children for all the hard work she has put in as Headteacher at Kilsby C.E. Primary School since January 2017 until now.  We are extremely grateful for all she has done and will miss her.

We hope everyone enjoyed the afternoon as much as we did!
