Handball practice for Embark Federation!

I was lucky to watch a fantastic Handball session after school which was our first inter-school session for children at Smalley and Kilburn. 

This was a great chance to link together as two schools and practice before the competition in a couple of weeks time. This will hopefully give the children a slight advantage over the other schools attending but more importantly have fun and make friends with others from the Embark Family.

A huge thank you to Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for organising this and we are looking forward to the next inter school sports session in December. 

Well done children and good luck in the competition.

Our Harvest thanksgiving

Well done to all the children and staff involved in our special Harvest assembly today. Our hall was packed with warmth as we shared our special Harvest message; every  child, from our youngest to our oldest, did their best to share our important message.

It was wonderful to have a full hall today. Thank you for supporting us.

This week we were very fortunate to have a special guest come in to school. Scott from Multiverses spent his day showing our children the future of education and learning. In the morning children from year 3 and 4 had the opportunity to explore an underwater coral reef leading to fantastic descriptive writing. In the afternoon children from year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to explore art in a 3D space using Google's ‘Tilt Brush’ software. This technology has proved to be inspiring, educating and engaging within a school setting.

Our annual superhero day for Gold September was another huge success this year.

The children looked amazing and we raised £396 by selling badges and wearing non uniform for this fabulous cause.

Well done to our super children!

Embark Federation - Forest schools training

All staff from Embark Federation received excellent training last night on Forest Schools/Outdoor Learning.

This was led by our very own Mr Goodburn at Kilburn Juniors and it was such an inspiring session that even the rain didn't dampen our spirits!

The staff took part in a number of well thought out activities that suit the outdoors rather than the classroom. What made the session even better was the enthusiasm of all of our staff and the creative thinking of how these can be adapted and used for different subjects and ages.

This is all part of our commitment to give our pupils a wide range of opportunities and a first class education.

Huge thank you to Mr Goodburn and all our staff for a memorable training session.
