We’ve had bubbles and lockdowns and washing our hands,
and it’s been tricky to be with our friends.
We want you to know that we have been really proud.
Because although this year has been really bizarre,
you’ve shown resilience, your kindness and strength,
And how good at adapting you are.
Thank you for being part of Millfield School.
The Summer is here, so have fun!
Be proud to have made the history books,
as the Class of 2021!
Small gift for Millfield children, July 2021
View the link below to see relevant information from our end of year assembly by Mrs Kennedy-Weeks. The 2021 gift shared above, as well as any awards for children in closed bubbles will be further celebrated and distributed in September 2021.

Developments in our one-way system for arrival and collection
View the one-way route into and out of school. Please stay on the outer playground path and follow the blue arrows. Children should say goodbye to their adult from home at their classroom sign and walk independently towards their teacher and classroom door.
Please do not approach members of staff on duty as we are continuing to socially distance. If you would like to share information with the teacher, please email via the class email address. If it is urgent, please phone the school office.
Thank you for you support and understanding.

Thanks go to Amwell View, who created this great resource for children.
Remember our Thinking Tree? When I was last in school, I spent a few moments watching our peaceful tropical fish glide happily through the water, when the tree caught my attention! I thoroughly enjoyed reading a number of the labels - do you remember what we all wrote on the individual labels? That's right - it was what we are proud of. A very thoughtful child told me that I should be proud of being a Headteacher - I agreed, so that is what I recorded. What did you record? What would you record now? - What are you proud of? You may have drawn or painted a rainbow and displayed this to show positivity and thanks to the NHS; You may have placed a number in your window to help entertain others whilst out on a walk; You may have helped someone at home; You may have tried hard to complete your home-learning; You may have learnt how to ride a bike (like my daughter!)... any of these things and so many more are reasons to be proud of yourself right now.
Take good care and keep smiling!
