Everyone at Mill Hill Primary had a fantastic time on Tuesday, at our annual Sports Day. We want to say a massive thank you to all our families who attended. Having you there makes it so special for the children. A great big well done goes to the children, for filling the day with smiles, fun and excitement!
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.
Our Year 6 pupils had a great time, when they travelled to Robinwood Outdoor Center. They faced a range of ‘adventure’ activities, as well as taking part in a number of ‘crystal maze’ style problem solving challenges.
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.
