Primary News – 3rd December 2017


Dear Parents and Students

We have now entered that exciting time of year when the end of term is within sight, but still have many special events and celebrations for everyone to look forward to before term ends, in addition to regular lessons and learning. As always, I recommend you keep a close eye on the main school calendars to see everything coming up at ISP, but copied below is a list of the main Primary events for the final two and a half weeks of term. Below this I have shared some stories from events in school from the past week or two, which you might enjoy.

Recent events in the Primary School:

Copied below is a selection of recent tweets from our main school Twitter feed, which Mr Ian and the marketing team have done a fantastic job of revamping recently, and I really recommend you take a look at if you want to get a flavour of the variety of activities happening day to day in school: https://twitter.com/ispkl

A reminder that teachers also share photos from your child’s year group (as well as lots of other info) via Flexibuzz, our messaging app for parents, and that our YouTube channel and Facebook page are other ways we share what’s happening in school.


Best wishes to you and your families
