Latest updates from our school
Another cracking day in the woods with our mini TBers.
We started the morning round the fire discussing the mood of the wood; the children used their senses and discussed their thoughts with the group and with a partner.
We then chose leaves that represented how we felt at the start of our sessions, and how we were feeling now; the children were really impressive at discussing their feelings and identifying how these had changed over the weeks.
After this, children followed their own interests; some made dragon traps, others used leaves to make snakes, a few used tools to make swords whilst others cooked on the fire. A final group undertook trust activities using blindfolds - these children communicated brilliantly, built trust and supported each other incredibly well.
What musical children we have! Another TB session and another letter from our goblins and fairies, this time challenging us to make music!
The children showed incredible ingenuity and teamwork, working in small groups to create instruments and compose their own autumn-themed music; we had the 'Trail Trio' throwing down some stormy vibes, the 'Forest Faries' creating a more moody feel, and 'The Pixies' taking inspiration from frolicking autumn animals.
The biggest buzz was created by Mr Bradder who built his own drum kit, complete with snare drum, high hat, crash symbol and tom-toms! He tore the wood up and had his fellow TBers whooping with delight!
Resilience was shown in the torrential rain, and cockles were warmed by Mrs Fox when she handed out her delicious, cinnamon and rasin bread spirals; thanks to the children who helped her make and cook them on the fire.
As a finishing point, could parents please have a conversation with Trailblazers about their clothing and footwear choices, particularly in light of the rain we had today; thank you all for your continuing support.
Twelve of our years 3 and 4 children were offered an exciting opportunity to compete in an archery competition held at our school.
Kilburn formed three teams and Morley Primary formed the final team of the event which was organised by Premier Sport.
All of the children had a fantastic time and one of our teams finished the event as Premier Sport Archery Champions!
I have attached our spelling lists and a handy link to some fun activities and games to support you and your child whilst you learn this week's spellings. Our spelling test will be next Friday (20th October). Please post any comments or questions about our spellings or the activities in the comments section below. Have fun! Mr Gordon.

Well done to all the children who were selected to win the English Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in English. Also, a big congratulations to Joe who won the Headteacher's Special Award for his excellent attitude at school.
The team have worked really hard again to support Macmillan by hosting our coffee morning.
The children and staff baked delicious cakes and biscuits to sell and with the help of our team of volunteers raised funds for such a worthy cause.
Thanks go out to everyone involved and to those of you who have come along to help make it another wonderful community event.
The total amount raised was a staggering £954.04.
A special thanks to Linda and Peter Edwards for coordinating the event.
