As part of our Science topic this term, Sycamore Class have been studying living things. We explored reproduction in both plants and animals. We learnt that we can clone plants by carefully cutting the stem. So we used the cuttings of an Ivy plant, dipped them in rooting gel and planted them in soil. To ensure their growth, we are continuing to closely observe our plants by providing plenty of sunlight and water.
What a fantastic day Kilburn Grange has had today! It was wonderful to see all the children walking through the school gates wearing the colour red in support of our charity ‘Show Racism the Red Card.’

Year 2, Holly class have really been enjoying their music lessons. They were great at creating and coordinating new moves to a song!
Holly class have been learning to count in twos, fives, tens and threes! They are now beginning to problem solve all on their own and are using number lines to look at patterns.
From the 5th October-4th December Kilburn Grange will go head-to-head with the other seven schools within the BPET trust to see which school can cover the most distance (raising money along the way).
All eight schools are encouraging their school community to take part in a unique inter-trust challenge to help raise money for their school and their respective chosen charity. The aim is for each school to hit their individual target (5,000km) so that as a trust we can travel around the circumference of the earth (40,075km). We want the challenge to be inclusive and accessible to as many of our school community as possible, so you can walk, run, or cycle from just 1km to a maximum of 5km in a day.
Kilburn Grange will be raising money for Charity: Show Racism the Red Card. Read all about this amazing charity by clicking on the link.
We chose this as our charity to support the learning linked to Black History Month which we are marking this October.

LET‘S GO KILBURN GRANGE!!!
It’s great to be back at school after such a long hiatus. We’re 3 weeks in and well into the swing of things now.
Maple and Oak class started off by reading an award winning book ‘Here We Are‘ by Oliver Jeffers – who wrote the book for his 2 month year old son to explain the world to him. This book created a lot of rich discussion about our diverse planet and our communities within it. We created leaflets to give to a visitor visiting our planet for the first time telling them all about the wonderful things we have.
In Maths we’ve been learning lots about place value using place value charts and dienes blocks and have begun using number lines up to 1000.
In Geography, Reading and Science we’re learning all about the locations of the rainforests throughout the world and beginning to understand the different aspects of them and why they are so critical to our planet.
Year 4 have started the Autumn term with a wonderful book called ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. Using this book, we discussed the importance of the world around us and recreated an image from the book.
Learning in English has begun with rewriting a story to include dialogue using speech marks. Learning in Maths has begun with looking at a 4-digit numbers and understanding the place value of each digit. We also have been rounding and using number lines.
We also dived straight in to History with our wonderful topic the Vicious Vikings and are learning about what life in Britain was like in this era. We have also begun our Science learning and the children have really enjoyed becoming Scientists and explaining all they know about Electricity.
We hope to continue our excellent learning throughout this term!
Year 2, Holly class have been busy with scientific experiments. they have been looking at inventors such as Charles Macintosh: he created waterproof material! They had a go at making theirown waterproof fabric using candle wax and a hair dryer.
