We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Y3 Trailblazers - trust, communication and senses

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.

Trailblazer Weekly Conundrum.

Do people who wear glasses still need them when blindfolded?

Trailblazers - autumn musical delights

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.  Collage 2017-10-19 17_11_29

Kilburn Support Macmillan

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.
