iMAT Olympics

On Tuesday 27th June,  19 children in Key Stage 2  took part in the annual iMAT Olympics held at Weedon Bec.

Representatives from all the iMAT schools (Weedon Bec, Badby, Kilsby and Woodford Halse) competed in various different events including long jump, throwing, sprint, 800 metres, etc.

Our children did extremely well and we were very proud of them all.  They displayed fantastic sportsmanship for all in their team as well as for the other competitors.  We won some medals too! These will be announced in the Friday Parent Update. Here are some photos taken during the afternoon:

Assembly - God's Love

Wednesday 21st June

This morning during assembly all the children were all given a strip of purple paper.  On this piece of paper they had to write something that they had done wrong that they think had spoilt their relationship with others and with God.

They made their strips of paper into a loop and threaded a strip of white paper through the purple loop to begin a chain (these white strips represented God's love).  Then the loops of paper were all linked together with those of all the other children, and they ended up with one beautiful long chain. In this chain we can see that even though we have done things that are wrong, God's love can always unite us and bring us back together.

At the end, everyone said a prayer for forgiveness and guidance from God to help us to make the right choices.

Here are a few photos taken this morning:

Keeping Cool!

Monday 19th June
As it has been so hot today the children at Kilsby School have been having lots of extra drinks, but this afternoon they had something a little more special!  

Mrs Sensecall arranged for them all to have an ice pop each, they were the perfect thing to help cool down hot children!

Maple Class Residential

Maple class left at 10.30am  this morning (Monday 19th June) to go on their residential visit to Caythorpe Court, Lincolnshire.  All the children and staff came out of school to wave them off.  We hope they have a wonderful trip!

Stratford Butterfly Farm

On Tuesday 13th June the Reception children in Chestnut class visited the Straford-on-Avon Butterfly Farm.

They had a really fun and interesting day out.  First of all they had a guided tour of the Butterfly Farm where they were introduced to many different types of butterfly, moth and insect.  They watched the butterflies feeding on fruit, walked through the tropical garden where the butterflies flew around as if in their natural habitat (sometimes landing on the children) and also had the opportunity to hold some creepy crawlies!

Afterwards the children ate their picnic lunch and enjoyed a break playing in the play park nearby.

Here are some of the photos, but as usual we will put together an album in our Photo Gallery on the website, so you will be able to see much more!

Victorians at Holdenby House

On Friday 9th June the children in Cherry class enjoyed a trip to Holdenby House, they spent the day in role play as Victorian servants taken from a workhouse where they undertook jobs around the big house.

They took part in workshops in the kitchen, bedroom and laundry room where only 'perfection is good enough!'  They also presented to her Ladyship in the afternoon to recite a poem.

The children worked really hard, and now have a first hand idea of how hard the children had to work in those days.  Here are a few photos taken during the day:
