Autism Awareness Week

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent Autism Awareness Week. Children shared experiences and made thoughtful contributions during activities designed to raise awareness of autism; in order for us all to develop our understanding and learn to support each other in school, at home and in the community.

Children created their own 'jigsaw piece' and proudly held it aloft to  celebrate difference  and recognise the diversity of the people and families living with autism, before coming together to produce our own interpretation of the Autism Awareness Ribbon.

Easter Artwork

The children of Team Endurance have been working very hard today to create a piece of art inspired by a trip of ours to a local church. Whilst at St Clement's in Horsley, the children learned about the significance of Easter. I challenged them to get creative and to design and make a piece of art that represented the Easter story. As you can see, they really have excelled! Well done, Endurance!

A huge well done to all of our Mini Leaders, who have worked extremely hard this year and are continually showing such dedication in their roles and developing new, exciting games to try!

Achievement Assembly Winners!

Well done to all our achievement assembly winners this week. The children have all worked really hard in mathematics and stood out to their respective teachers for their perseverance, effort and progress. Also, well done to our Headteacher's Award winners for their consistent hard work and positive presence in the school.

An enjoyable Easter experience

What a lovely morning for a walk! Team Endeavour were in good spirits this morning and made thoughtful and respectful contributions during our Easter activities at Horsley Church. Children listened well and were creative in sharing their hopes and dreams for the future. We were very lucky to meet some lovely people and enjoy refreshments too.

Letters from the Front

As part of the children's study of WWI and the Christmas Truce, the children wrote imaginative letters from the front line.

As I am sure you will agree, Emily's letter captures the feeling of life at the time, and the events of Christmas 1914 brilliantly.

A Day In The Life at Kilburn Junior School

The above film, gives a flavour of our school ethos and the many wonderful opportunities on offer for our pupils.

Sandwich making and tasting

Mr Gordon’s class absolutely loved making and tasting sandwiches today. They learned some important food safety points as well as how to spread butter, mix their ingredients and chop ingredients safely under close supervision. As you can see from the pictures, it’s time to get them packing their own lunchboxes next week!

Team Endurance Lego 'Into Orbit' Project

We love it when people bring us exciting ideas and Mr Walters has brought us a real cracker! The Lego 'Into Orbit' project is an exciting and stimulating multi-national competition in which children compete to build and program robots to solve real-world scientific and engineering problems. There is also a project that runs alongside this to research and find solutions to these problems using the children's own creativity and problem solving skills. The core skills that this project aims to promote within the children are team work, communication, problem solving, design, engineering and computational thinking / computer programming. If that wasn't awesome enough, the project utilises Lego products (such as Lego 'Mindstorms')  to develop these essential skills!

A huge thank you to Mr Walters for bringing this idea to us, his enthusiasm and for generously devoting his Tuesday afternoons to running the project with us in school.
