E-Safety Logo Competition

November 22nd, 2016

safer-internet-day-2016

Do you have an eye for design? Are you the next big designer?

If so, can you create a new online safety logo for Safer Internet Day 2017?

Safer Internet Day will be on 7 February 2017 and there is a new challenge for learners in Wales.

We are calling on learners to take part in our Safer Internet Day competition to create a new logo for online safety in Wales.

Your task is to work with your family or friends to come up with a good logo that will represent online safety in Wales. Can you think of an eye-catching design that will make people sit up and take notice?

We will award prizes for the best designs and enter them into the Welsh Government competition.

All entries must be completed by Monday 5th December.

Help us to raise awareness of Internet safety.

 

Anti-bullying news

November 21st, 2016

Our Helping Heroes are on the search for new recruits to join their team of anti-bullying ambassadors. They launched their search during school assemblies last week and are on the look out for kind, caring and compassionate learners who are good at displaying this term’s habit of listening with understanding and empathy. Could this be you?

Our Leading Lights pupil voice group have also been doing some work on anti-bullying. They have produced some fantastic, emotional poems which capture the essence of how bullies can make you feel.

On Friday 18th November the whole school community will be supporting BBC Children In Need. The theme this year is “Do your thing.” We are encouraging our whole learning community to do their thing by coming to school on Friday 18th November dressed as what you dream of being or doing when you grow up. Share your talents, hopes and dreams for the future with us and bring in a donation for Children in Need.

Millbrook Remembers

November 11th, 2016

The whole learning community paid their respects to those who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars and in other conflict around the World today. The whole school held a minute’s silence and a special Somme Rose has been planted in the school grounds. Year 6 were proud to take part in Bettws Community Remembrance Service at St David’s Church. A very moving day. Thank you to everyone involved.

Half Term Homework

October 21st, 2016

School has broken up for the half term break. We have set a whole school homework task to help learners and their families to flex their learning muscles and to get creative. Your task is to design and make a model of your dream house.

How many rooms will it have? Will it have a garden? How many floors? Will it have any special features? Be as a creative as you can. Models and ideas should be brought to school when we return after the half term break on Monday 31st October

Our newly appointed global ambassadors were delighted to welcome learners from Pillgwenlly Primary School, St Andrews Primary School and St Woolos Primary School last week. The children forged new friendships quickly enjoying pointing out aspects of global learning around the school. Our global ambassador group defined what they felt the role of a global ambassador should be and presented some of their ideas to the rest of the group. They aim to lead the way in developing an understanding of global learning in each of their schools.
