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.
Comment below with your story ideas to help get your classmates' creative juices flowing!
A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in Team Endeavour today. Children participated in a rich discussion about some of the causes of World War Two and asked many challenging questions. Thank you too, to Mia and Jaret for sharing their respective medals and newspaper articles with us. Keep up the good work everyone.
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.

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!
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!
Here is some great artwork created by Team Endeavour inspired by the work of Clarice Cliff.
A huge well done to our amazing year 6 cohort for their determination and focus during this week's SATs tests. We are all very proud of what they have achieved. Every one of them has given it their all and shown that they are able to face challenges with a positive attitude whilst drawing on skills they have learned over their time at Kilburn Juniors and at home.
Many thanks to parents too for their support during this time and in everything we do at Kilburn Juniors.
Now that the SATs are finished, year 6 can look forward to the next term and a bit in school which will be filled with preparation for secondary school, a school trip, sports day, our Drum Hill camp out, the summer fair and the end of year show, to name but a few. As you can see, there is still lots to do and lots to look forward to, year 6!
Year 6, how did you find the SATs tests? Also, do you have any advice for our year 5 for next year? Let us know in the comments.
Last Wednesday, pupils from across the school enjoyed a cross country competition at Eyes Meadow, Duffield. The competition was organised by the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership. A video of this competition can be viewed using the link below.
Thank you to Mr Kirby for once again passing on some amazing photographs of our children enjoying the competition.
