Attention all year 5 and 6 children!
As a brilliant introduction to upper school's World War II topic (which we will start when we come back to school in September), the Friends of Markeaton Park are bringing a 1940s themed family festival including a craft fair and entertainment to Markeaton Park on 27th of August. There will be loads to see and do and should be fun for all the family. Let me know in the comments anything you learn whilst at the festival, should you be able to attend.

We are incredibly proud of our Go Ride team. They have smashed the league this year and have shown dedication and commitment. They are an inspiration. Here are some more pictures from the finals where KJS riders emerged victorious! Well done to all the children in the team and to Mr Whiteman for dedicating so much of his time to cycling in the school!
A huge congratulations to the whole school for putting on a brilliant performance last night. It was amazing to see so much talent on show. A touch of sadness also, as we will soon be saying goodbye to our super year 6s. We have made so many memories and they will truly be missed. They are a unique and very talented year group. Here is the slide show that we put together as a reminder of some of their best bits.
What a wonderful Summer Concert we held at school this afternoon and this evening. Thanks to the parents for your support as ever and for the staff for their hard work in putting it together.
Thanks also to Loz from the Derbyshire Music Partnership for his work with the Ready 2 Rockers but most importantly to the children for delivering a brilliant show-we are so proud of you all.
