Latest updates from our school
Classes Courage and Resilience visited Kilburn Infant School this morning for a Q and A session hosted by the Year 2 children. Both classes were a credit to our school as they responded sensibly to the children's questions and concerns about life at Kilburn Junior School. The Year 2 children were delighted to hear how much both classes have enjoyed their first year at Kilburn Junior School and are looking forward to visiting us next week. Thank you to Mrs Swinfield and the Year 2 children for a wonderful morning spent in the sunshine. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
Thank you to Team Equality and Team Endeavour for being superstars on our trip to Shipley park today!
This morning, we went on a 3 mile walk to investigate the different land uses within the country park and the nearby area. This afternoon, both classes had the opportunity to go on a mini-beast hunt and do some pond dipping. We found lots of interesting organisms including: frogs, dragonflies, swan molluscs and lots of creepy crawlies!
Thank you for your enthusiasm, curiosity and hard work today.

Tesco presented the PTFA with a cheque for £2000 today from their 'Bags of Help' Grant Scheme. The money will help support the building of the school outdoor Trailblazer Headquarters, paid for by the PTFA.
Many thanks to Tesco for their generous donation and to parents and the public for supporting the scheme for the benefit of our pupils.
Following the study of our local environment and the effect humans have on it, the boys and girls were really keen to do their bit to improve things for local people.
Tempy and Emma have litter picked every day on their way to school this week, collecting discarded rubbish left by others. They have demonstrated our core values, teamwork and integrity, been superb role models to others and as a school we are so proud of them for their efforts.
Thank you to Blayze White and everybody at Denby Bottles Methodist Church for a superbly organised visit to their church this afternoon. The children enjoyed some games, activities and some fantastic live music performed by the house band. Look out for Sam 'MCing' at a nightclub near you soon!

Before 'ayf term, the children cut sticks to make themselves a weaving frame; to join the pieces of wood together, they used a technique called box-lashing.
This week, they selected wool, wove it to their frames and then found beautiful things to decorate them with; some quality pieces were produced and many of the children were rightly proud of their creations!
We started with a game that required us to be honest and respectful, before reflecting on our contributions to KJS over the years. We then took inspiration from Aboriginal art pieces and created a design to represent the things we felt we had brought to the school; we then painted these designs onto river-cobbles.
After this, some children made a nest for us to put our cobbles in, and we then reflected on our attributes and how these would help us as we moved into the next chapter of our lives.
