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 Earth Day Big Art Project

In order to raise awareness to the problem of plastic pollution, the Lower School designed and created a piece of big art on the school playground. We used our drone to film the project taking place and we think the result is breathtaking.  Enjoy the video and let us know what you think in the comments below.

 

 

Roaming Rob comes to Kilburn

Today we welcomed Rob Johnson AKA Roaming Rob to Kilburn Junior School. The children in the Lower School were enthralled at the demonstration of his metal detector and were delighted to get their hands on historical artefacts dating back to Roman Britain. 

We’d like to thank Rob for helping to bring history to life this morning and for his kind donation of historic coins to our school.

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.
