A Few Reminders
In KS2, the door opens at 8.45 for an 8.50 start and, for KS1 and Reception, the door opens at 8.50 for a 9 o'clock start. We do ask that children enter school on their own to help develop their independence. In order for us to safeguard your children we do ask that parents refrain from entering school wherever possible; there is always a member of staff on each door for any messages that you may have or, alternatively, please visit the office. On those rare occasion where your child may be late into school please report them to the office so they can be registered.
Parking - please can we remind you of the importance of parking safely around school. The temporary traffic lights between Church Street and The Sorrels has not helped our very limited parking situation and we have received complaints of dangerous parking around the lights themselves. We do ask, that during busy times you are still considerate of other drivers and pedestrians, especially children, and park in the surrounding streets where possible.
For those of you that are not aware, Station Road (the Weetabix Road) will be closed from Monday 14th January until September due to work on the railway line. This will affect those of of you from Burton Latimer and Barton Seagrave who will need to find an alternative route into Isham. Please allow extra time for your journey to avoid arriving late to school.
FOIS were very busy over the festive period and have been doing a great job raising funds for different projects in school. They are always on the look out for volunteers to join the very friendly team, so, if you can spare a bit of time, do come and join the first meeting of 2019 which will be held in school on Monday 4th February at 9 o'clock. For more details of what FOIS have been up to recently, and what events they have coming up, please check out their Newsletter below or 'like' their Facebook page. A copy of the newsletter and the minutes from the last meeting can also be found on our website - www.ishamprimary.org.uk
The children have had a busy start to the term and are already preparing for some sporting events. Teams from Years 5 and 6 will be taking part in the District Sports Hall Athletics Competition on Thursday 10th January at KLV Indoor Arena and the Small Schools County Finals Football Tournament at Kingswood School in Corby on Monday 14th January. A small group of KS2 children will be taking part in New Age Kurling competition on Tuesday 15th January. Years 5 and 6 have also had a busy week learning to ride their bikes safely by taking part in the Bikeabilty programme.
KS1 and Reception will be focussing on Multi-Skills in their P.E. Lessons this term. Years 1 and 2 were looking at targets for their first lesson whilst Reception had a 'Room on the Broom' themed skills lesson.
It has been a great start to the term and I will keep you updated with all the results and up and coming competitions as the term progresses.
