Go-Ride County Final

Yesterday our Go-Ride Cycling team represented Amber Valley in the Derbyshire School Games - County Finals in Sheffield, following their success in local races. They were competing against the best teams from across all nine districts of Derbyshire. 

Firstly, competing in the Italian pursuit, Team Kilburn unleashed a sprint finish to take 1st place with just one second separating them from the second placed team.

Finally, it was down to the team relay, a race which Kilburn had only ever lost once in the last six years. Kilburn made a good start and quickly began to gain ground and overtake the leading riders. Soon, the team's determination would pay off, as they took the lead on lap 3 and began to open up a gap from the rest of the field. Kilburn crossed the line a whole 4 seconds ahead of the next team, meaning Kilburn were pronounced 'Go-Ride Cycling County Champions 2019!' 

A huge well done to all of our Team and a special thank you to their parents for their support.

For a full list of results and more photos from the event, check out the Active Derbyshire Website .

Autism Awareness Week

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent Autism Awareness Week. Children shared experiences and made thoughtful contributions during activities designed to raise awareness of autism; in order for us all to develop our understanding and learn to support each other in school, at home and in the community.

Children created their own 'jigsaw piece' and proudly held it aloft to  celebrate difference  and recognise the diversity of the people and families living with autism, before coming together to produce our own interpretation of the Autism Awareness Ribbon.

Into Orbit Competition Video

A huge thank you to Mr Walters for putting together a video of our time at the First Lego League competition at the Institute of Science and Engineering at Nottingham University. This video really captures the excitement of the day and just how engaged the children were with this huge challenge. Can't wait for next year!

The Great Kilburn Bake Off

The lower school children thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make bread with the help of Warburtons today. We hope you liked tasting their ‘breadghog’ as much as we enjoyed making it!

Busy at Work

This week, team Resilience have been working hard outside to complete a reading trail. They used their skimming and scanning skills to locate, retrieve and use this information to answer questions. Then working hard back in the classroom, will our budding PCs ever solve the crime they have been compiling a report about?  Watch this space for updates ... 73274275-5C7B-47E3-9AB6-6B394459E962

Summer Disco

The children had a wonderful night at the school disco dancing and singing their hearts out. The hall was sweltering but it didn't stop the children from throwing some shapes and having a great time. Many thanks to the PTFA and the parent helpers who came along to support the event and thanks also to the lads from Gazza's Disco Hire for putting on a great show.
