Team Resilience

The Great Kilburn Bake Off

The lower school children thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make bread with the help of Warburtons today. We hope you liked tasting their ‘breadghog’ as much as we enjoyed making it!



Crime Solved

Team Resilience solved the mysterious crime today, whilst using their amazing reading skills. They did so well that the culprit was caught by Mr Whiteman. Our real-life One Hundred Mile an Hour Dog was returned safely to its owner, after the children had interrogated the dog and Mrs Horwood had fed it some treats. Thank you to our parents for keeping it a secret and to Team Resilience for their great behaviour! 

Busy at Work

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 ... 73274275-5C7B-47E3-9AB6-6B394459E962

Achievement award winners

Well done to our pupils for winning the class English Star Award this week.  They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in English, especially with writing, grammar, spelling and reading.

We are really proud of you all.

Junior Gregg Cup

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.


Year 2 Q & A at Kilburn Infant School

Classes Courage and Resilience visited Kilburn Infant School this morning for a Q and A session hosted by the Year 2 children.  Both classes were a credit to our school as they responded sensibly to the children's questions and concerns about life at Kilburn Junior School.  The Year 2 children were delighted to hear how much both classes have enjoyed their first year at Kilburn Junior School and are looking forward to visiting us next week.  Thank you to Mrs Swinfield and the Year 2 children for a wonderful morning spent in the sunshine.  We look forward to seeing you all soon!



Lower School Trip to Denby Bottles Methodist Church

Thank you to Blayze White and everybody at Denby Bottles Methodist Church for a superbly organised visit to their church this afternoon. The children enjoyed some games, activities and some fantastic live music performed by the house band. Look out for Sam 'MCing' at a nightclub near you soon!
