Author Visit For Key Stage 2!!!!!

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!!

Welcome back!

A big ‘welcome back’ to all of our pupils and staff, following the summer break. So pleased to see just how smart everyone is looking and looking forward to a positive year.

What have you done today to make you feel proud?

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.

Race for life!

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!!!!

Adventure, challenge and explore!

Our Year 5 pupils recently had a week long residential at Derwent Hill Outdoor Center. While there, the children got the chance to complete the John Muir Award. This is a nationally recognised, environmental award, which requires participants to ‘Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share’. The children engaged in a variety of tasks, including working with the Environment Agency, to plant over 100 trees, which will inhibit the erosion of a river bank. Well done to everyone who took part.

Visit to the Mayor’s Chamber

As part of our school’s work on democracy, some

of our School Council visited Sunderland Civic Centre

and met our city’s Mayor.

While they were there, they were given a tour of the

Mayor’s Chamber and got the chance to look at a

range of ‘official’ artifacts, linked with the city’s history.


They also got the chance to ask the Mayor about

his post and the duties he carries out, on behalf of the

people of Sunderland.
