Sports Day 2018

 

Tough Runner 2018

Well done to our Tough Runner Teams of 2018 for competing with such enthusiasm on one of the hottest days of the year! The course was tough (as you would expect from the name) but the children all pushed themselves and had fun leaping walls, crawling under cargo nets, carrying medicine balls and racing over a gruelling 20 metre duck walk! A huge thank you to the AVSSP for putting on such a great event and helping our kids make memories.

Animal Habitats

The children in upper school have been working hard to create animal habitats to encourage creatures to make our school grounds their home. We have produced bat boxes, bird boxes and insect habitats using a variety of D&T skills including accurate marking out, drilling, screwing and even burning designs into the wood to make them the highest possible quality. They have done a fantastic job so far. Next steps: add a small solar powered light to the bug boxes to encourage insects into the habitat.

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
