WHAT'S NEW? 2021/2022
Science Photography Festival 2021
Pupils at New Mill were tasked with taking photographs as part of the Science Photography Festival. They had to enter images which communicate a scientific story as well as being visually striking. We think they succeeded! Well done to all those who took part.
A very talented Year 6 Student wrote a poem, his family put music to the lyrics and recorded a beautiful song. We are so lucky that they have kindly given us permission to share this with you all....
Red Nose Day 2021
A Visit from a Paralympic Athlete!!
Next week New Mill Infant School will have a very exciting visitor - Michael Churm - a Team GB Paralympic Athlete. Michael is a GB Paralympic Sprinter and competes in the T37 category. He made the finals in both the T37 100m and 200m in the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing. Michael's greatest high is winning his Paralympic silver medal and becoming European Champion. He is really looking forward to meeting everyone at the infants and sends them this message...
Thank you Read - Holmfirth!!
A huge THANK YOU to our friends at our local independent bookshop - Read for the wonderful delivery of books to both schools this week.
New Mill Infants were very excited to receive a class set of Supertato books... Supertato is incredibly popular, especially with our Year 1 classes.
New Mill Juniors very gratefully received a class set of Victoria Stitch books. We are planning to have a featured author display about Harriet Muncaster in our library area after half term.
UK Parliament Ambassador
You might remember - way back before lockdown - that the junior school took a trip to London to visit Parliament and learn about what happens there. A huge amount of work was done on this in school and during lockdown Mrs Bounds received and email from the Parliament Education & Engagement Officer which said...
"Thank you very much for your portfolio submission, it’s great to see how committed you are to spreading the word about UK Parliament! I was particularly impressed by the work of your Debating Club – what an interesting topic to discuss! Also, it’s great to see you and your pupils’ work celebrated in the newspaper.
I am delighted to welcome you as a UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador (Gold)!"
This means that we can now proudly display this badge right here...
The document below shows how much work went into this award. A huge well done to Mrs Bounds and all the children involved.
