Minibeast Hunt

Years 1 and 2 had a lovely afternoon exploring the school for mini beasts.  The children were very successful finding all sorts of creatures from woodlice to spiders.  As it was such a glorious day, the children continued their lesson in the willows drawing and labelling their mini beasts.  What a fab day – well […]

Parent Prayer Group


The parent prayer group is about making sure that Isham is a prayed-for school, and getting parents involved in the Christian life of the school.  There is a meeting approximately every two weeks, on different days and times so that everyone can make at least one meeting a term if they want to.

We start with a short bible passage: this term, each bible passage is themed around the new school vision:

Nurturing the infinite worth of every person through love, respect, perseverance, honesty and forgiveness.


Then we think about upcoming events happening in school and write down things and people we need to pray for.  We also take a look at the notebook which is left in the staffroom for staff to write in their prayer requests.  Then there is period of quiet in which everyone present prays or reflects.  If you are feeling brave, you can pray aloud, but there is no pressure to do so.

The whole meeting lasts 15-20 minutes and we finish with the Lord’s Prayer. It’s a lovely way to spend a few minutes of your day and my hope is that the group will encourage parents in their own prayer life, just as the children pray every day at school.  It does not matter if you don’t know how to pray, or have never prayed in a group before – everyone is welcome.  Please bring your pre-school children along too – there is a small box of toys and books provided to keep them amused, though nobody expects them to be quiet!

If you have any questions, please come and speak to me in the KS2-end of the playground. My name is Kylie and you will notice me as I’m usually standing with my 2-year-old twins.  My older children, James and Kate, are in years 3 and 4.  I’m also very happy to receive prayer requests, if you cannot make a meeting in person.

The dates for the Parent Prayer Group for the Autumn Term 2019 are:

*please note the afternoon meetings will now start at 2.50pm and not 3pm as previously advertised*

Wed 9 Oct 9am

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8


Thurs 21 Nov 2.50pm

Love one another warmly as Christian brothers and sisters, and be eager to show respect for one another. Romans 12:10


Tues 3 Dec 9am

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9


Weds 18 Dec 2.50pm

The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. Proverbs 12:22

Guide to making a prayer request

You can make a prayer request about anyone in the school community (children, staff, governors, parents, families, people from the local community or diocese) or someone who is dear to you. If it is not appropriate to share a person’s name or give details which might identify them, it’s fine to be unspecific or to […]
