Congratulations to the Year 3 and 4 children who competed in the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership dodgeball competition on Tuesday evening.  They certainly had a lot of fun and we are all very proud of the sportsmanship and determination that they displayed during the competition.  They played magnificently and finished the evening as runners up.  Well done Team Kilburn!

Year 3 trip to Creswell Crags

On Wednesday 17th November, our Year 3 experienced their first trip at Kilburn Junior School and what a trip it was!  They stepped back through 50,000 years of Human history to experience what life was like in Ice Age Britain.  They enjoyed building shelters, learning how to hunt for wild animals using a spear and how to start a fire using flint and iron pyrites!   They also learned about different types of rock and how they are formed.

They then visited a cave where evidence of Stone Age Humans has been discovered and they learned all about the wild beasts that roamed there during the Ice Age.  They even held a stone axe that is over 40,000 years old!
