Sport Relief Mini-Mukker Fudraising!

A huge congratulations to all our children who took part in the Mini-Mukker Killer Kilometre for working really hard to collect their sponsorship money. The children have raised a huge total- as you can see below- which will help Sport Relief to tackle critical issues affecting people across the UK and the rest of the world. A huge thanks to parents and family for supporting the event and sponsoring the children. What a team effort!

The Return of the "Eggstronaut"!

Team Endurance worked hard recently to design and build a parachute and landing module for their "Eggstronauts" so that, when released from the school roof, they returned to earth without cracking! Well done to the winning team below for not only keeping their egg intact but for also creating the most efficient parachute and winning the Easter egg prizes.

Year 3/4 DCLFC Football Tournament

This week our year 3/4 girl’s football team attended an all day competition held at the Power League Soccer Dome in Derby.

The tournament was hosted by the Derby County Ladies Football Club and consisted of 16 teams from across Derbyshire. The matches were played six-a-side and for 10 minutes per game.

Our team played some outstanding football scoring a staggering 27 goals and only conceding 3 over all of their 7 games. This meant our team finished the highest goal scorers in the entire tournament and 2nd place overall.

Huge congratulations to our team, especially the  three children who made their Kilburn Sporting debuts.

Also a huge thank you to the Amber Valley Sports Partnership, who kindly transported us to and from the event in their new mini bus!

World Book Day 2018

After the 'Beast from the East' forced us to postpone our original date, today we have finally celebrated World Book Day 2018! We love reading at Kilburn Junior School and World Book Day is a great way for us all to have some fun, share some of our favourite stories and dress up like a character from a book. Reading is brilliant!

World Book Day Bake Sale

Team Endeavour have been very busy this week. Yesterday in Maths, they were able to use scaling to create their own cake recipes, then followed instructions to bake some delicious treats. Today, after calculating their costs and possible profits, the bake sale began. Great job everyone! IMG-20180301-WA0014

500 Words 2018!

 

All the children of upper school are really excited at the launch of the Radio 2 500 Words competition 2018. We will be working over the next few weeks to write an entry of our own! The children got involved in the BBC Live Lesson which launched the competition, came up with loads of amazing story ideas and got some superb story writing tips from Charlie Higson and Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Basketball practice with our Embark friends at Smalley.

It was a privilege to watch children from both Embark schools practice their Basketball skills earlier in the week.

Thank you Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for making this happen and to all parents for helping with transport.

Handball practice for Embark Federation!

I was lucky to watch a fantastic Handball session after school which was our first inter-school session for children at Smalley and Kilburn. 

This was a great chance to link together as two schools and practice before the competition in a couple of weeks time. This will hopefully give the children a slight advantage over the other schools attending but more importantly have fun and make friends
with others from the Embark Family.

A huge thank you to Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for organising this and we are looking forward to the next inter school sports session in December. 

Well done children and good luck in the competition.
