Millbrook Curriculum Enrichment
At Millbrook we value the importance trips and visitors. Each class will go on a trip a half term to enrich the learning in the classroom. We try to use the local area as much as possible. Take a look at some of the trips the children have been on.
Year 2 - Trip to the Fireground museum!
Year 2 went to Rochdale to the Fireground museum. We learnt more about the Great Fire of London and got to have a go at using the squirters to put out fire! We had a tour of the museum and looked at how fire engines and the fire service has changed since 1666. We had an interactive fire engine experience and even got to go in a real fire engine!

We made Challah bread, tasted other festival foods and found out about the importance of food in Jewish celebrations and on special occasions.
