Lydiard Park Walk

Millbrook children, parents and staff took a walk to Lydiard Park along with Santa and his Elves. They were met by Ranger Ben who talked about some of the nature in the park. As evening fell, the children used their lanterns to light the way. The event finished with carols and mince pies. Thank you to everyone who came along.

Born in a Barn

KS1 and Foundation stage worked incredibly hard to put on three fantastic performances of Out of the Ark’s production, ‘Born in a Barn’.

A big thank you to all…

Year 2 – Inspirational Inventors

This term we have been learning about Inspirational Inventors. We hot-seated Alexander Graham Bell, made timelines to show how phones have changed since they were first invented and learned about different inventors. We also learned about toys from the past and present. We made our own catapult toys, played Victorian games and wrote an information page about Toys and Games from the Past using all the information that we’d learned.
