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!

Year 6 Maya Models

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!
