This week, team Resilience have been working hard outside to complete a reading trail. They used their skimming and scanning skills to locate, retrieve and use this information to answer questions. Then working hard back in the classroom, will our budding PCs ever solve the crime they have been compiling a report about? Watch this space for updates ...
Huge thank you to Chris Kirby for putting together this fantastic compilation of photos of Team Discovery at this year's sports day.
The children had a wonderful night at the school disco dancing and singing their hearts out. The hall was sweltering but it didn't stop the children from throwing some shapes and having a great time. Many thanks to the PTFA and the parent helpers who came along to support the event and thanks also to the lads from Gazza's Disco Hire for putting on a great show.

Well done to our Tough Runner Teams of 2018 for competing with such enthusiasm on one of the hottest days of the year! The course was tough (as you would expect from the name) but the children all pushed themselves and had fun leaping walls, crawling under cargo nets, carrying medicine balls and racing over a gruelling 20 metre duck walk! A huge thank you to the AVSSP for putting on such a great event and helping our kids make memories.
A huge well done to our year 3 & 4 football team, who took part in the first ever Junior Gregg Cup. The festival was held at Heanor Town Football Club and featured many local football teams.
The tournament was also extremely memorable for two of our children, who made their Kilburn Junior School sporting debuts.
Many thanks to all the dinner staff for creating such a brilliant atmosphere during our party celebration of the Royal Wedding today. All the children and the school wish Prince Harry and his new bride, Meghan, a long and happy life together.
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.
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!
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!
