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!
Lower School children have thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Derby Museum today. They have been bringing Joseph Wright's art to life, met a Roman citizen, come face to face with a real Egyptian Mummy and much more! Have a look at the video and photographs below and leave a comment to tell us what your favourite part of the day was!
Our Resilient Romans have returned with another fantastic invention!
The budding Roman siege engineers and with the assistance of Mr Goodburn have built a working replica of a catapult.
Here it is in action.
Eight of our year 3 and 4 children took part in a fantastic dodgeball competition at Belper School this week.
Three children, India, Autumn and Aurora also made their fantastic debuts for team Kilburn.
The team performed brilliantly with 5 wins and 1 draw. Furthermore, for their terrific sportsmanship and determination throughout the competition they were awarded the Spirit of the Games certificate. Well done to all who took part.
Our very own Team Resilience have become expert Roman siege engineers today after designing and building marshmallow catapults! Using only marshmallows, wood, a spoon and an elastic band our Resilient Romans have created an amazing feat of engineering.
What could be next I wonder?
Twelve of our years 3 and 4 children were offered an exciting opportunity to compete in an archery competition held at our school.
Kilburn formed three teams and Morley Primary formed the final team of the event which was organised by Premier Sport.
All of the children had a fantastic time and one of our teams finished the event as Premier Sport Archery Champions!
I hope that you are excited about our trip to Poole's Cavern on Tuesday. I visited the cavern on Sunday morning and really enjoyed exploring the caves and walking in the woodland. Take a look at these videos as a teaser for our trip on Tuesday. What do you think you will discover in the caves? Post a comment below to let me know! Mr Gordon.
