Lower School trip to Bosworth Battlefield

Last Friday, the children from Lower School 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 types of equipment and 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 and videos below and let us know what you think in the comments section!

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.

Fantastic Gymnastics

Yesterday these fantastic Year 3/4 gymnasts took part in a school sport partnership competition in Alfreton. They tackled the vault with style, showed their self control in the body management routine and performed their fantastic floor exercise routines. They worked really well as a team and showed great sportsmanship! Well done ladies and thank you to all parents who supported the children too! EJ

The above film, gives a flavour of our school ethos and the many wonderful opportunities on offer for our pupils.

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!

Crime Solved

2207AAF8-E3E1-473B-8607-865C3EAEB3F0
Team Resilience solved the mysterious crime today, whilst using their amazing reading skills. They did so well that the culprit was caught by Mr Whiteman. Our real-life One Hundred Mile an Hour Dog was returned safely to its owner, after the children had interrogated the dog and Mrs Horwood had fed it some treats. Thank you to our parents for keeping it a secret and to Team Resilience for their great behaviour! 

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
