Volcano Makers

Last Friday, we created our own volcanoes as part of our marble jar treat. We got to choose the colour of our volcano and everyone got a chance to make the volcanoes explode! The recipe for our volcanoes is below if you would like to try it at home.

You will need:

  • A plastic cup 2/3 full with water
  • 3-4 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 teaspoon of washing up liquid
  • A small amount of washable paint (depending on how strong you would like the colour to be).
  • A bottle of vinegar


  1. Mix all of the ingredients (apart from the vinegar) together with the water inside the cup.
  2. When well mixed, start pouring the vinegar into the cup until the volcano begins to explode. Once the explosion has finished, add more vinegar and you should be able to get several more explosions.

    Here’s one we made earlier!

The Great Fire of London

This week in English the children have been using non-fiction texts to research questions about The Great Fire of London.

They will use this new information to help them during their independent write.

Year 6 Homework

Dear parents and carers,

Recently I have had a number of children not completing their homework. As a reminder, this homework is to support their learning in class and to develop their knowledge and vocabulary of words.  Children are required to complete their spelling homework by the following Wednesday (they receive this homework on the previous Thursday) and they are required to complete guided reading tasks by Thursday as they are given these tasks on the previous Thursday.

If you have any questions or queries regarding homework then please feel free to come and see me.

Many thanks

Mrs Hickling 

Camera skills

This half term in ICT we are focusing on Digital Media. Today, the children have been learning all about how to use a camera. We have discussed that it is very important to keep the strap on our wrists to make sure the camera doesn’t get damaged.

We have discussed the words flash, shutter and lens.

Gallery Exhibition

Congratulations Year 4!

It was wonderful to see The Milford Academy masks, journey Poems, portrait work and word drawings displayed in the Nottingham Contemporary!

The enthusiasm, motivation and determination everyone displayed during the project was reflected in the art work at the gallery!

The partnership project with the Nottingham Contemporary, the artists Perter and Sian and the Milford Academy has been an inspiring experience.

Well done everyone!

Hopefully pupils and family will visit the exhibition on the weekend as well!
