Latest updates from our school
We had children reading music and playing instruments, others beating a rhythm on tables whilst chanting a poem, and a final group acting their interpretation of 'Beast From The East'; it was a whole class performance that made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck!
Then down to the wood where the children started to create their own 'Beast From The East' compositions.
Well done to our pupils for winning the English Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in English. Also, a big congratulations to Peter who has worked incredibly hard, making outstanding progress with his reading. For this you won the Headteacher's Special Award.
A varied day in the wood today; we had one group working on a 'how to make a fire' instruction document, another fine tuning their 'Beast From The East' performance and a final group creating Maya gods in clay and paint.
The fire group safely used saws, secateurs and sheath-knives, the Maya god group showed incredible creativity in their designs and the performers blew us away with their confidence.
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!
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!
Due to the icy conditions, high winds and further snow, school will be closed today- Friday 2nd March
The 'Beast from the East' can't deter the pupils and staff of Kilburn Junior School! Many thanks to all who braved the elements to make it in to school today. Everyone had a great day!
