Huge thank you to Chris Kirby for putting together this fantastic compilation of photos of Team Discovery at this year's sports day.
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.
Please take a moment to complete our survey about our local environment.
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.
A huge congratulations to all our children who took part in the Mini-Mukker Killer Kilometre for working really hard to collect their sponsorship money. The children have raised a huge total- as you can see below- which will help Sport Relief to tackle critical issues affecting people across the UK and the rest of the world. A huge thanks to parents and family for supporting the event and sponsoring the children. What a team effort!
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!
Upper School have been learning about the fascinating history of the Central American Maya culture. They were clever scientists and prolific builders with intriguing and gruesome religious practices. We have also been learning about the groups of people who made up the different levels of their society from the highest kings to the lowliest slaves.
In this activity, we have been designing costumes befitting of wealthy and very important Maya citizens. The children did an amazing job!
