Also, many thanks to Simon from Frost’s Hallmark in Heanor for supplying us with the balloons to help to make our day a bit more special.

DHL Road Safety

Many thanks to the DHL team for bringing in their lorry to teach the children about road safety. Trucks and Child Safety (TACS) is a national safety training programme funded by the DHL UK Foundation. It aims to help keep children safe around larger vehicles on the road and targets children aged seven to 11 years old, as they start to travel independently. The things we learned will help to keep our pupils safe and road aware. We also got to have a look inside the lorry!

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!

Lower School Trip to Derby Museum.

Lower School children have thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Derby Museum today.  They have been bringing Joseph Wright's art to life, met a Roman citizen, come face to face with a real Egyptian Mummy and much more!  Have a look at the video and photographs below and leave a comment to tell us what your favourite part of the day was!

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!

En Garde!

It was a real privilege to watch our children take part in a Fencing Competition tonight. Children from Kilburn and Smalley joined together to put the skills they have learned at Fencing Club into practice. 

The children demonstrated a huge amount of skill and sportsmanship which was great to see. 

The competition was incredibly close but Kilburn pipped Smalley to the title and have a lovely cup to display in school.

There was a great turnout from parents and grandparents and everyone had a fantastic time. Thank you all for your support.

Thanks also to Premier Sport for organising the event.

Handball practice for Embark Federation!

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.
