Learning the skill of sketch noting!


Over the last 2 terms, learners in year 3 and children throughout the junior department have taken part in The Arts Council for Wales Lead Creative School Project. We have been lucky enough to work with artist Angie Stevens. Through this work the children have learned the skill of sketch noting – this involves using a combination of sketches and words to convey meaning and understanding. The children have really impressed us with their work. Thank you Angie!

Red Nose Day 2017

A big red nose thank you to the whole school community!


Our whole school community came together last week to support Comic Relief. Y4 learners organised the sale of red noses and the whole school came dressed in red, red noses and non-uniform to raise money for this worthwhile caused.

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.


Thank you!

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.
