Latest updates from our school
Team Resilience continue to embrace their learning at home. I have received some fantastic photos of our maths learning on meaures and the creative juices are definitely flowing, as Team Resilience share their creative, thoughtful and fantastical stories. Alongside this our community minded families continue to do their bit, Lewis and family took part in a litter pick to keep their local environment clean and tidy. Keep up the fantastic work!
We've had a great day at school today. We began with a yoga session which helped us all feel relaxed and challenged our balancing skills. After that we went on a little wander outside to help us find some filling materials for our first craft of the day. We created our very own bunny rabbits using a variety of materials. Next up, we did some marble painting and some paint blowing art. We all enjoyed seeing the colours mix together. We also enjoyed some games, including a difficult 'find the pinecone' challenge in TBHQ. The children had to find specific pinecones which had googly eyes on them. Thanks again for a lovely day!
A huge well done to everyone who took part in the recent Master Chef Challenge.
Throughout the week we received well over 100 submissions from pupils showing off their amazing creations. Here is a small montage showcasing some of their achievements:
Keep an eye out for more challenges coming soon!
Thank you to all the children today for their inspiring work.
We started the day by collecting our thoughts and discussing the 'long' weekend before exploring the work of the artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Everyone recreated his work and designed their own pieces, inside and outside the classroom. Continuing our theme in the afternoon, we chose plants and potted up baskets to take home and pottered about tidying and replanting the front gardens. We shall all sleep tonight!
A special thank you from us to Shipley Park Garden Centre for their kind donation of plants and baskets.
During this strange time, we have seen some wonderful examples of people going the 'extra mile' to support each other. We have also witnessed ways in which people have come together to support the NHS and Key Workers.
One of our families is a real example of this. Kath Lamb, of Horsley Road, grandma of Joe and Isla, has been baking cakes tirelessly for the last 3 weeks to sell on a stall at the end of her drive. Her stall has been open to the public every Thursday morning from 10am until 12pm and has been a huge success, already raising £1000 for the NHS.
Obviously, all social distancing measures are in place, and for those who are unable to leave the house, she has been taking orders and delivering them too.
So why not take a walk on Thursday, as part of your daily exercise and give Kath and the NHS your support.
As a school and community, we are immensely proud of Kath and the whole family- another example of extra-ordinary people doing extra-ordinary things.
After the huge success of our previous activities. We have now released our third sporting challenge.
Anyone who takes part in the challenge and sends us the clip to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploads the clip directly to the google classroom assignment page before our deadline of Friday 15th May will also receive a representation towards their sports award.
Good Luck and see you soon!
The wait is over!
Well done to all of the children (and adults) who sent in clips of themselves taking part in the Kilburn Junior Trick Shot Challenge.
It was great to see so many creative and skillful trick shots you all came up with and hope you all enjoyed taking part.
Hope you enjoy the little montage of clips I've put together for you all and keep a look out for more challenges in the near future.
Some of the children have been getting ready to commemorate VE Day on Friday by producing their own bunting at home. Please visit the link to view the gallery. If you have any more, please send them to me and I'll add them to the gallery.
We began today learning about Victory in Europe day (VE day) and considering why it was important to recognise this day. We made a timeline of the events during World War II that led to VE day. The children then made their own spitfire gliders as we discussed how planes were used during this time. The children took part in several mini races with their gliders outside.
After that, the children enjoyed a orange/apple juice carton drink which Morrisons had kindly donated to the school. The children were really pleased and wanted to say thank you. So this afternoon, we made some thank you cards. Thanks for a great day.
