Comic Books

The children in Team Courage and Team Discovery have thoroughly enjoyed reading and exploring the features of comics this week.  Inspired by classic copies of the Beano and Dandy, they have developed their own dialogue which they will be using in our English lessons for the rest of this half term.  Select the image below to view a gallery of the children at work.



Roman Mosaics

The children in Team Courage and Team Discovery have been producing these superb mosaics inspired by our Roman topic.  Their collaboration and accuracy were evident throughout the afternoon.  Please slect the image below to view some more of our images.

Year 3 and 4 Dodgeball Competition

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!

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!

Angle hunt

Team Discovery have been learning about the different types of angles today. They have been working together to find the different types of angles on their tables. We had great fun working together.




Morgan's masterpieces!


Morgan has blown us away over the past 8 weeks with her posters. For each creative task given, Morgan has put her own unique spin on it and created a fantastic poster complete with backed pictures and writing. Well done Morgan, we have loved seeing them.

An unlikely hero!

Team Discovery have just finished reading Charlotte's Web. We have been discussing who the hero was in this story. Whether that be someone who obviously stood up for Wilbur or someone who quietly did their bit in the background without being noticed. The children were asked for their opinion on who was the real hero. Whilst we had so many brilliant answers and reasons for choosing each hero, Morgan has blown us away by explaining that each character, in their own way, played a heroic part in Wilbur's journey.

Fantastic work Morgan!

Darcy's success!

A couple of months ago, Darcy wrote a fantastic story about a horse called Star. Team Discovery loved it so much that we sent it to David Walliams. Yesterday, Darcy received a letter and a photo from David Walliams to tell her how much he loved her story! Well done Darcy, we are all very proud of you!
