On Thursday, we celebrated Harvest Festival in our school. We collected lots of tins and packets of food for the County Durham Food Bank. We needed very strong muscles to carry them all when Reverend Thorpe came to collect all the bags. Thank you to all who contributed!
We work hard in school, to encourage our children to understand the values that maintain our society. It is wonderful, when we can give them concrete experiences of how these values work. Our recent Student Council elections was one such experience. Pupils presented themselves to their Year Group peers and stood for election, to this very important body. When the votes were cast and counted, the pupils below had been selected. We are certain they will work with staff, over the next year, to ensure we take notice of ‘the pupil voice’ at Mill Hill Primary School.

The staff and children in our Reception class are really pleased with our new ‘outdoor’ kitchen, which was delivered this week. The plan is to use it as a ‘Mud Kitchen’, to encourage children to measure, weigh and mix as they play. The equipment, from a local company called James’ Shed, is a fantastic addition to our outdoor learning area.
We had lots of fun when author, Stuart Reid, came to visit. Stuart presented an engaging whole school assembly where he told us all about his books and writing, as well as helping to showcase Mr Hair’s hidden acting skills. He also held an excellent Writing Workshop for some children from KS2.
