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.
Twelve of our years 3 and 4 children were offered an exciting opportunity to compete in an archery competition held at our school.
Kilburn formed three teams and Morley Primary formed the final team of the event which was organised by Premier Sport.
All of the children had a fantastic time and one of our teams finished the event as Premier Sport Archery Champions!
Congratulations to all of our Brownlee Triathlon competitors. What an amazing experience the children had, and to cap it all off they were able to meet two-time Olympic and Commonwealth triathlon champion, Alistair Brownlee. What an honour! Many thanks to all the parents and staff who also attended the event to support the children.
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.

We are incredibly proud of our Go Ride team. They have smashed the league this year and have shown dedication and commitment. They are an inspiration. Here are some more pictures from the finals where KJS riders emerged victorious! Well done to all the children in the team and to Mr Whiteman for dedicating so much of his time to cycling in the school!
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!
