The pupils, staff and community of Millbrook Primary School are delighted to present their first ever published book. Entitled “We are Writers” the book contains a selection of writing by pupils throughout the school demonstrating that everyone has the ability to be a writer.

The book also contains specially written pieces by our very own published children’s author and year 6 teacher, Mr Paul Manship.

Mrs Watkins, Mrs Hampson, past pupils and community members have also made contributions to the book. Everyone has the ability to write no matter how young or old.

Each book costs £5.99 and is published by Scholastic.

Copies of the book are available to view at The Scholastic Book Fayre which is in school from Monday 31st March until Friday 4th April.

Last orders and payment must be in by Thursday 10th April at the latest.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to own this celebration of our children and school community’s ability to write.

On Friday 21st March Millbrook Primary will be supporting the charity Sports Relief. All pupils and staff are able to come to school on Friday dressed in sportswear in return for a voluntary donation for this worthwhile cause. During the day each class will take part in their own specially designed sporting activity.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Silver Birch Class had great fun learning alongside their family members in class today. Pupils and adults learned how to design and create a healthy lunch and then had great fun creating their own healthy meal.

A big thank you to the healthy schools link teacher Lynne Phillips for running the workshop today.

Today’s workshop is one of many school activities that Millbrook Primary School provides for its school community to promote healthy eating and drinking.

A big thank you to all families for giving up your time and taking part – as always we have superb support from The Millbrook Primary School Community.

Thank you to all parents and families for supporting your children this World Book Day. Millbrook Primary swapped its pupils and staff for all sorts of book characters ranging from Harry Potter to Alice in Wonderland. Everyone had great fun celebrating their love of reading.

Everyone was excited to learn about Millbrook Primary’s very own book which will be published soon. Mr Manship and Mrs Lloyd launched the book during today’s World Book Day Assembly.

Copies can be ordered via the school office at a cost of £5.99 per book.

World Book Day 2014

March 1st, 2014

World Book Day is on Thursday March 6th 2014. As part of Millbrook Primary School’s celebration of World Book Day and our love of books and reading, all pupils are encouraged to come to school dressed as their favourite book character and bring their favourite book to school to share with their class.

We are also promoting our pupils as authors and will shortly be launching our very own published book containing samples of pupil writing from across the school and from the local community. We are delighted that Mr Manship, our very own year 6 teacher and published children’s author, has penned some pieces especially for our school. Copies are available to order from the school at £5.99 per book. Copies purchased will earn the school Scholastic book vouchers which will enable us to purchase more books for school. Thank you for your support!

We encourage all pupils, parents, carers, family members, staff, community members to make time to read.

Millbrook Primary has been awarded its 3rd Green Flag Award since opening as a primary school in 2007.

The Green Flag Award is the international standard for Keep Wales Tidy’s student led environmental program.

To achieve the green flag our Eco Committee worked with Mr Bebb, the assessor from Keep Wales Tidy to share the whole school community’s hard work in striving to be environmentally friendly. Mr Bebb was very impressed with the Eco Council and the work of our school.

Well done everyone!

Millbrook Primary is proud to be green!
