This afternoon our year 5 and 6 classes experienced a PE lesson with a difference.
Mr Whiteman with the help of Mrs Fox and some year 6 helpers created an exciting Triathlon course, complete with bike/scooter circuit and running track. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite have enough time to build and fill a real swimming pool, so a pretend pool had to be constructed.
Well done to all the children who took part, you all made a terrific effort to complete the course.
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!
