Many of you will have noticed contractors on site this morning and so I write with some information about the latest build project; rather late as the start date was only confirmed late on Friday last week!
We are having a new flat roof on school; the roof over Y3/4 and Y5/6, together with the roof between the office and the YrR classroom are all being replaced. The work should be completed mid- January 2016.
In order to keep children safe for the duration of this work, scaffolding and safety fences are being erected around our building. Our children have been instructed not to play with this at all, but it is imperative, please, that all toddlers are kept away from this equipment at the start and end of the school day.
We ask also, that no child (even with their parent) uses the school car park as a walk-through. Whilst we aim to keep delivery times outside of school start and end times, this area will be used by the contractors and is not a safe place for our children to be.
We aim to keep noise levels, dust and interruption to a minimum within our school day and ask that you help us keep our children safe by regularly reminding them of these rules.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do pop in to see me.
Thought I’d post a few pictures so you can see what’s going on with your Y4 children. They’ve had a lovely day on the zip wires and the swamp today! Year 3 facetimed them from class – we watched Charlotte … Continue reading →
If you have a child who will be 4 between September 1st 2015 and August 31st 2016, you should now be applying to the LA for a primary school place.
To help you decide, here at Isham we have 4 sessions available for parents of prospective applicants. If you could just call Mrs Sue Wood (office) at school on 723956 to book onto one that would be great.
These are on Tuesday 29th September, Tuesday 20th October, Wednesday 25th November and Monday 11th January. All are held for an hour between 11pm-12pm.
The hour will start with a 15 minute talk about our school, given by me. This will be followed by tours of the school with our Y6 children; an opportunity to hear how it is from a child’s viewpoint, and then finally and 15 minute session about applying to us as a VA school – and how the application system works.
We recommend you do not bring your child along to these sessions unless it is unavoidable – not that we wish to be awkward, but the session is not aimed at children and parents will get more from it if they can come alone.
Please do book onto one of these hours and I’ll look forward to meeting you then.
Thank you to all those from St Peter’s Church and from Isham village who brought so many scarecrow activities into school today. Thank you too to all the parents that came to support. All the children had great fun, and … Continue reading →
After a game of beach volleyball yesterday evening, everyone was tucked up and fast asleep by 10.30pm. They all awoke to blue sky and sunshine again. Archery kicked off the day, followed by the zipwire, which everyone loved. The major … Continue reading →
All Y5 spent a very lovely afternoon yesterday using chocolate to paint american icons. In amongst the sticky fingers and chocolatey faces, there were some fabulous creations – almost a shame to eat them!! Take a look…
Cranford primary are hosting their annual Year 6 secondary school transition evening in their school hall on Tuesday 15th September at 6pm. All of the Kettering Secondary schools will be represented and there is an opportunity for prospective parents to find out about admissions processes for each school. There is also the opportunity for the parents to have informal chats with representatives from each of the schools. It is open to parents of Year 5 & 6 pupils and will last for no more than one hour.
The Head at Cranford asks that we advise parents to arrive via the main road entrance (High Street NOT Church Lane as this entrance will be locked!) to the school but to park outside and walk down to the school hall.
Again, everyone slept well last night and woke to a hearty breakfast of egg, sausage, tomatoes and bacon, plus cereal, toast, yogurt and fresh fruit for those that wanted it. The weather is dry with the sun starting to peep … Continue reading →
From Louise and Dawn, via text to me as they have no internet! We have all enjoyed a fabulous day with wall to wall sunshine for our afternoon on the beach. We found lots of sea snails and crabs; everyone … Continue reading →
