Carols Around The Christmas Tree

What a lovely end to the term! Parents, grandparents, friends and siblings joined us for a festive sing along in the school hall. We sang some old favourites and children performed songs from their Christmas shows.




Christingle Service 2015

Our 2015 Christingle was a very special event. We enjoyed listening to musical performances from our school choir; our trumpet players; our flautists and Class 2 played their ocarinas. The children also performed Christmas songs and then the congregation created a circle of Christingle oranges around the church.


Christingle  Party

Our Christingle fundraiser was very well attended and a significant amount of money was raised for the school. Thanks to the friends of Kilby for organising this enjoyable event.


Christmas Decorations Morning

Our decorations morning was a huge success with over 30 parents signing up to help in the classrooms. Pupils were able to make cards, streamers and other decorations which have made the classrooms look very festive.


Advent Service

10 of our Class 4 children attended the Cathedral Advent Service with Mrs Richardson and Mrs Hall, one of our school governors. The Service was a very special event and an opportunity for our pupils to represent Kilby St Mary’s as one of the Dioceses of Leicester’s Church schools.


Movie Night

Pupils having fun in their pyjamas on Movie Night.



Santa Visits Kilby

Class 1 and 2 got a lovely surprise when Santa turned up at their Christmas Party.



After School Club

We have been busy having lots of fun at After School Club this term. The children have been creative with crafts, and playing fun and exciting games. Next term, the children will have the opportunity to do some cooking and sewing along with the usual activities. If you would like to book your child a place at After School Club, please collect a form from the office.
