News from the school

May 2019


April involved lots of Easter related activities for the children, starting with a visit for the year 5/6 children to the Lutterworth Methodist Church’s “Encounters and Easter”.

The next day we had an Easter Egg hunt in the school field, followed a couple of days later by the annual Easter Bingo at the village hall.  Mr Wood was a fantastic bingo caller, and everyone had a great evening, especially the lucky winners!  We would also like to say a massive THANK YOU again to our amazing local butchers Joseph Morris, who provided us with delicious sausages to serve on the night.  Joseph Morris are so supportive of our school events, we are really lucky to have them in our village.

The Easter celebrations continued with our annual egg rolling on the last day of term.  The children decorated hard boiled eggs, and competed to see whose egg rolled the furthest.  This event is always very exciting for the children, especially as there are chocolate prizes to be had!

We’ve had some sporting success lately too, in the quick-sticks (like hockey) tournaments in Lutterworth.  Year 3/4 did fantastically, coming top in their group, then winning the semi final 3-1.  The final was a tense game, going into extra time, but a last minute goal saw South Kilworth win, and go on to represent the Lutterworth area.   Year 5/6 also took part in a tournament, and played very well.  They were given the referees’ special “Spirit of the Game” award for their teamwork and collaboration skills.

Year 5/6 enjoyed a trip to the Birmingham Think Tank science museum as part of their “Tomorrow’s World” topic, where they participated in The Electrifying Science Show!   Meanwhile year 3/4 went to Warwick Castle for their “Towers, Tunnels and Turrets” topic, watched an archery show, and went to Knight School.

And finally – if anyone has any empty printer ink cartridges, we have signed up to The Recycling Factory, who we can send these cartridges to.  This helps the environment and raises money for the school.  Please either bring these to school, or drop them off at my house (29 Welford Road) – thank you.
