Go for Gold Fun Run

Go for Gold Fun Run

44 children from Key Stage 2 took part in a Go For Gold Fun Run at Harvey Hadden. The children had to run around a 1000km circuit, which was marshalled by children from a secondary school. Each time they completed one lap they received a wrist band.

They were awarded a Bronze band for their first lap, Silver for their second and then they went for Gold on their third! For each extra lap that was completed the children got a sticker.

Everyone from Milford got a Gold band with most of the children managing to do more laps with some running an amazing 6 laps! A big thank you to all the children that took part. You all showed the Milford Values by being motivated and determined.

Incy Wincy Spider

Incy Wincy Spider is one of our favourite rhymes. We have linked many of our activities to it this week.

It’s been exciting and scary to have found lots of different bugs and creatures.

Spiders can walk on walls. We walked on wallpaper. “It was a bit slippy and slidy”.

We had to wash the paint off. “It was cold and splashy”.

We learned how to use a magnifying glass and spotted a real spider!

We found a caterpillar, a ladybird, bees, beetles, a snail and three frogs in the wildlife area.

There were bugs hiding in the compost.

We used brushes to paint pictures of bugs and spiders.

It was tricky to blow the paint to create a spider but we all managed to do it.

We created a swamp for our insects by mixing compost with water. “It is messy!”

Can you help the children to search for bugs in you gardens? There is so much knowledge and language involved. Your children can tell you lots about small creatures and are very caring towards them.

BookBench Launch Event!

The Milford Academy BookBench is now finished and on its way to Clifton Library where it will form part of a sculpture trail across the city.

Seaside Day in Nursery

The Nursery children had a lovely seaside day in the sun.

We made sandcastles, paddled in the pool and had ice creams.
