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!

If you are interested in finding out more about what's on at the church, visit the Denby Bottles Methodist Church website.


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. 


Fun in the Sun

Team Resilience enjoyed the fantastic weather this morning with an exciting outdoor maths lesson practising their mental and column calculation skills, whilst trying to solve a secret code hidden within the answers of the questions.


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!

Lower School Trip to Derby Museum.

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!
