Dig For Victory Garden Party at Markeaton Park

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.

Derbyshire County Go Ride Champions

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!

Good Bye To Our Super Year 6s

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. 



Orienteering Competition

Well done KJS orienteering team, great team effort and a credit to our school. Thank you to our parent supporters.

AVSSP Tough Runner Event

Here are some photos from the first AVSSP Tough Runner event. The children all had a fantastic night running around the obstacle course and taking part in the team challenges. Straight after this, most of the children rushed back to school for the school disco too. What an exhausting day!

Team Brown Charity Event

Many thanks to all who turned out to support the Team Brown charity event on Friday. The whole community pulled together to raise money for this very worthy cause. Many thanks to all the PTFA for organising it and to all who volunteered their time to help run the stalls. We hope the money raised will help.

Year 6 Survival Day

The Federation was forged to provide the children of Kilburn Juniors and Richardson Endowed Primary School with opportunities to collaborate and learn together. Today, we held a ‘survival’ day for our year 6s from both schools who are shortly to move to John Flamsteed Community School. This helped them build vital teamwork and problem solving skills whist forging some new friendships before they transition to the next phase of their schooling. As you can see from the photos, we all had a great time reading maps, making fires, creating hats to keep off the sun and building shelters. What a busy day!

Team Equality News

After writing thank you letters to Mr Timmis, Mr Middleton and Mrs Goodburn for their recent efforts in school, children were delighted to receive postcards in reply. Well done again to everyone involved.
