Team Resilience

A Wonderful Way to start the Day!

Teams Resilience and Courage have been reading and retelling stories to each other in our daily guided reading sessions this term. Today, we took this to a whole new level - reading and role-play in the early morning sun. Watch out for their dramatic freeze frames and poses, we definitely have some budding storytellers and actors in our midst!

Times table ball pit

We finished our lesson today by practising our times table in our man-made ball pit!

The children went head to head to collect the most balls by answering the times table questions and matched each question and answer together.

Les Couleurs

This afternoon, Lower School have been reviewing colours in French to finish off this term's unit. The children listened to songs, joined in with the singing and responded well to flashcards too before applying their knowledge to their task. Très bien!

Writers at work

This week, in Team Resilience, the children have worked together to produce super sentences using ISPACE starters.

Using their growing knowledge of verbs, similes, prepositions, adverbs and conjunctions, they have created poems and descriptions that truly are ... out of this world!  Excellent effort, everyone. ISPACE

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!

Year 3 trip to Creswell Crags

On Wednesday 17th November, our Year 3 experienced their first trip at Kilburn Junior School and what a trip it was!  They stepped back through 50,000 years of Human history to experience what life was like in Ice Age Britain.  They enjoyed building shelters, learning how to hunt for wild animals using a spear and how to start a fire using flint and iron pyrites!   They also learned about different types of rock and how they are formed.

They then visited a cave where evidence of Stone Age Humans has been discovered and they learned all about the wild beasts that roamed there during the Ice Age.  They even held a stone axe that is over 40,000 years old!

Terrific Tables

It has been great to see Team Resilience exploring many of the ways in which to learn their times tables and related division facts. From Hit the Button, to TTRockstars and creating our own arrays with the pegs and boards, we have certainly started well. Nine children have successfully completed their Bronze Award, and a huge shout out to Oscar who achieved his Silver today. Well done for working hard at home to learn these, as well as in school!
