Good morning.  I hope you and your families are all well during the unprecedented circumstances we find ourselves in. 

I would like to to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for using the home-school booklets to support your child whilst our school is closed.  We understand that this has been a challenging time and as such each member of staff is incredibly grateful for your continued support.  It is heart-warming to have been sent so many photographs of our children engaging in different activities and enjoying themselves at home too.

Feedback from many of you suggests that your child has completed their booklet and you are now ready for further support from your child’s teacher. 

Since last Monday, the teachers have been working on ways that we can continue to support your child whilst the school remains closed.  As a result, 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. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. You need to visit Google Classrooms using the web link or alternatively you can download the app onto your phone or tablet. 
  2. 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.
  3. Use the code kmdsvnd to join the school.
  4. You will find your child’s individual class underneath ‘classwork’.

Most of the content won’t go live until Monday 6th April but please sign up before the weekend so your child’s teacher can assign the tasks correctly. 

If you have any problems at all, please email me at courage@kilburn-jun.derbyshire.sch.uk.   I will be available over the weekend to assist you with any issues you might experience logging on to the classroom.

We have planned to use the Easter holidays as a trial period for the classroom.  Each class teacher has set a number of Easter based activities for your child, as well as other activities that you can try at home.  As you can appreciate, the staff themselves have been on quite a steep learning curve over the last week or so and we would value your input going forward so we can make it as effective as possible.  Please leave comments for your child’s teacher regarding:

  • The quantity of work.
  • What you feel would help to support you and your child further.
  • Additional content that you would like to see provided for your child.
  • Any questions that you have.

Your child’s teacher will respond to your comments as soon as possible. 

After the Easter holidays, we are looking to deliver more in the way of resources that you and your child can complete online. Your comments will be valuable in order to help us achieve this.

Stay safe everybody and I look forward to seeing you register over the coming days,

Richard Gordon.

Team Courage Roman Catapults

The design brief is simple: to design and make a working model of a Roman catapult that is capable of firing a projectile, can support its own weight and is strong enough that it won’t fall apart. As you can see, the children in Team Courage have been enjoying the challenge so far!
