Team Endurance

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.

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. 



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!

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!

Well done to Our Amazing Year 6

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!

AVSSP Cross Country Competiton

Thank you to Mr Kirby for once again passing on some amazing photographs of our children enjoying the competition.

Year 6 Spelling Lists and Games

As promised, here are some lists and spelling games that year 6 could do with having a go at over the long weekend. These few objectives need just that little bit extra practice before we smash the SATs in two week's time.

ei and ie words


-ible and -able words

Words containing the sc letter string

Words that use a y and an i phoneme

Words that contain silent letters

Let me know in the comments any words that you find particularly tricky and maybe someone will have a cracking mnemonic for remembering how to spell it!
