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!

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.

Discovery's marble treat

 

After filling their marble jar for the third time, Team Discovery had some time playing with board games this afternoon. It was lovely to play together and enjoy lots of laughs.

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.
