Year 6 visited MMU last week for the Primary Futures Festival. We got to interview some students about university life and had a tour of the All Saints campus. Later, we participated in a workshop where we explored what we wanted to be doing in 15 years time – we all have great aspirations! The future is looking very bright for our Millbrook graduates!!
Well done to all of Year 6 this week, you have worked so hard this year and I am sure you will all get the results you want.
We are all extremely proud of you - now relax and enjoy the rest of your time at Millbrook.
Year 6 were evacuated to the Tatton estate. Aunt Mary at Home Farm was very cross to have 21 children billeted to her small cottage, especially as we had all forgotten our ration books! To earn our keep we were put to work on the farm; feeding the animals, milking the cows and cleaning the tack. In the afternoon, there was an air raid and we had to hide in the air raid shelter. It was cold and dark but we kept ourselves occupied by singing wartime songs.
Some of Y6 watched a performance of ‘Bantams’ at Hyde Festival Theatre. The play followed the fortunes of 5 local young men who were initially refused when they tried to volunteer for WWI, but were eventually allowed to serve. It also dealt with the effects of the war at home and the relationships between the young men and their women at home. The play consolidated the children’s learning about WWI and its impact on our local area.
