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:
