Latest updates from our school
3rd July 2020
Following the successful return of our Year 4 pupils this week, we will delivering Trailblazer sessions to our Year 3 pupils next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The parents who requested a place for their child in our 'Return to School Survey' should read the following information and share it with their child so that the safety of all school users can be maintained.
Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time and I hope that this will enable us to give the children the ending to their school year that they deserve.
Learning at Home During Lockdown
The teachers have been working on ways to continue to support your child whilst the school remains closed and we have developed an online learning platform using Google Classrooms which we feel will help to meet the needs of you and your child at home.
Google Classroom enables your child's teacher to schedule work each day, allows your child to submit work for marking and enables teachers to give feedback to your child on how they have done and any improvements they can make to their work.
The teachers will set daily tasks for the children to complete, but to begin with you will need to do the following:
- Visit Google Classrooms using the web link or alternatively download the app onto your phone or tablet.
- You will need to use an existing Google account or set up a new one to sign in. You will be prompted to do so when you visit Google Classrooms.
- Use the code kmdsvnd to join the school.
- You will find your child’s individual class underneath ‘classwork’.
We appreciate that this is a new way of working- it's new to us too, and that things may not run as smoothly as we'd hoped, especially during the initial stages of its use, but if you have any problems at all, please email me at email@example.com. I will be available over the weekend to assist you with any issues you might experience logging on to the classroom.
Over the past few months, in his role as Army Reservist in the 4 Mercian Regiment, Mr Barber has been deployed as a member of the COVID Support Force.
As a school, we are immensely proud of his selfless dedication to fight against the pandemic and the example he has set to us all.
Mr Barber's actions support the qualities we wish to foster in our children and I hope, like us, you will use this as a shining example to your child.
Please find below a copy of the report I have received from the Commanding Officer of 4 Mercian, which describes Mr Barber's role in more detail for you to read and share this with your child.
Mr Barber is due to return to school next Tuesday 7th July and we look forward to welcoming him back to the team.
From all the staff and pupils at Kilburn Junior School, we wish Lizzi good luck and all the best in your new home! We look forward to hearing from you in the future and all about your new adventures!
Thank you for being such an amazing part of our school community.
As part of their home learning, Team Resilience have been busy finding out all about the classification of animals. They have reserached then created bug hotels for their visiting critters. Check out these deluxe five star hotels, including a hoverfly lagoon and ant enclosure, all carefully designed and measured using recycled materials. Another great piece of learning from Team R.
The children in Team Courage have been busy writing instructions for the most disgusting sandwich in the world. Whilst the quality of their work is excellent, I think you will agree that their sandwiches are less than appealing!
They are well worth a read or a watch so please take the time to look at them.

It was wonderful to welcome our Year 6 pupils back to school today and it soon felt like they had never been away, showing great maturity and an eagerness to start learning with their friends again.
Having been silent for many weeks, it was lovely to hear the buzz and excitement back in classrooms and throughout the school.
Thank you staff for supporting the boys and girls today and helping them settle back into school life.
