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!
This week, we had a visit from the RNLI. We learnt not only to be safe in water but how to stay safe around different water sources. Don’t we look like we had fun?
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.
Award winning author Stuart Reid will be visiting Key Stage 2 in Mill Hill on Tuesday 19th September. He will be reading extracts from some of his fantastic books, as well as personally signing any copies that the children purchase. Hopefully this will inspire our young writers onto greater things!!
School held its ‘Academic Achievement Awards’ ceremony today, 17th July, 2017. This annual event gives staff the opportunity to nominate pupils, who have made a major effort over the whole year. The three categories are ‘Hard Worker’, ‘Most Improved’ and ‘High Achiever’. Each year group puts forward a pupil, in each category. The event is attended by parents, grandparents and other family members. We want to say a massive well done to the pupils who received their awards today.
Today, we also saw our current Head Girl and Head Boy, hand over the reins to their ‘replacements’. This year, Amie and Joseph have carried out their duties with great aplomb. We are certain that next year’s recipients will do equally well.
“The Academics” visited Mill Hill this week for a whole school performance. All children had a great time dancing to modern hits and some golden oldies!
As the final part of our ‘School Sports Week’, we decided to hold Mill Hill’s very own ‘Race for Life’. We aimed to raise as much money as we could for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They’ve saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the past 40 years!!
Everyone in our school took part and ran 1 mile around the school field. We put our Year 6’s with Reception, our Year 5’s with Year 1 and our 2’s, 3’s and 4’s ran together.
We managed to raise an incredible £1,205.75!!!!
