    During our Iron Age topic we were lucky to have an amazing visitor in early October, the children were able to experience the Iron Age with weapons and animal skins! For our WOW finisher we had an Iron Age camp fire with soup and story telling. It has been a great topic.

  • Anti-bullying Week

    The children have been busy making anti-bullying displays to put up in their classrooms to remind them of the ‘Power for Good’. The displays will help the children to understand the difference between bullying and being unkind/mean. They will also help the children to identify different types of bullying and what to do if they see bullying happening at Millbrook.
