Lower School trip to Bosworth Battlefield

Last Thursday and Friday, our Lower School children walked in the footsteps of King Richard III and King Henry VII when we visited Bosworth battlefield.  

We learned about the events of that day, the men who fought in the battle and the weapons that were used.  We even took part in a training exercise led by a member of the fantastic team of volunteers who helped to make this one of our most memorable trips to date.

I would like to say a big thank you to all of the children who represented our school superbly and to our staff and parent helpers who did a great job in helping the day run as smoothly as possible.

Please take some time to look at a selection of photographs below and let us know what you think in the comments section!

Team Courage Artwork 5th February

As part of this term's art lessons, the children in Team Courage have been learning how to draw eyes and noses.  I'm absolutely amazed by the realism of their drawings.  You can view a gallery of them by clicking on the image below.

Bear the Scientist!

Bear in Team Courage (with the help of  his little sister, Sky) has been inspired by our science topic to produce this video of an experiment that he carried out at home.    I'm sure you'll find it as interesting and entertaining as we have at school. 

Well done to you both!

 

 

Team Courage Artwork

Team Courage have been learning how to draw portraits during our online art lesson last week.  Here is a selection of their work from last week.  I'm sure that you will agree that there have been some very impressive results.  Well done everybody! Keep up the good work and stay positive.

Team Courage Internet Safety

On Friday afternoons, the children in Team Courage have been learning about Internet Safety.  They have been using a series of free, online resources produced by Google to learn how to 'be Internet Awesome'.  You can access them at home by clicking here. I have also attached a guide that has been produced for parents.  Please leave a comment to let me know what you think of the resources at home.

The Kilburn Junior School Time Capsule

This afternoon, our Lower School children left the comfort of their classrooms to dig up a long forgotten Time Capsule. The Time Capsule - buried in 2012 as part of our celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - had laid undisturbed for 8 years.  We held our breath as it was finally unearthed.

In a scene reminiscent of an episode of Time Team, we eagerly awaited to see if the contents had survived being buried for almost a decade.  Luckily, we weren't disappointed.

If you want to see what we found, click on the link below to view the gallery.

Remembrance Day 2020

At 11 O'Clock this morning, our Lower School children observed a minutes silence to mark this year's remembrance day.  To mark the occasion, children from Team Courage read a selection of poetry that they have written in class, whilst children from Team Discovery read from a list of names present on the Kilburn war memorial.

We will remember them.
