Welcome to

Great Milton C of E Primary School 

WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW!

Well done and thank you to FOGMS for raising the money for our new playground. A very special thanks to our Chair of FOGMS, Paul Lawrence who has worked so hard to pull this together. He has put so much of his own hard pressed time into this, even spending all Sunday with the help of a few stalwart parents and his ever tolerant family, putting the safety matting in place so the children could be on it today - saving us £8000 by doing this as well!

No words can express our thanks adequately but maybe the joy in these pictures can!

Calling all netballers!

|

Following on from last year's successful parents v staff v pupils netball match, we have now got the date for this year's match.

It will be held on the tennis court after school on Thursday 10th July until 4.30pm.

If you are a parent and want to take part, please submit names to Mrs Walters in Barn Owls so that a parent team can be organised prior to the event. Any ability is accepted!

There will be a staff team and also children who attend netball club will make up a team too.

We look forward to seeing you there!

CONGRATULATIONS MADAME POWELL!

The school has been awarded a UK National Prize in the special sponsored category

‘Creative Languages Learning – Primary’ 
as well as an eTwinning UK Quality Label for the work on the project with our friends from Erre.

 Judges from the British Council said of our project:

"A well run project that was embedded throughout the curriculum involving the whole school... an excellent example of how a simple idea, if well planned and executed, can result in many long term benefits."

We are hoping this will move on to the next stage and be awarded a European Quality Label as well!

 

Miss Charnock has been awarded the Primary Science Teacher Award and been made a

Fellow of the College for the Primary Science Teaching Trust.

We are so proud of her and all she is!

Emma was presented with her award today (7th May) by Mr David Lathby, a Trustee of the college and will also be going to Manchester in June for the official national award ceremony.

Her fellowship means the school also receive £1000 for Science and the opportunity to become involved with science research and different opportunities for investigative and exciting science education in school and locally.

Well done Miss Charnock!

Sharing Assemblies this term:

Eagle Owls  25.4.14
Tawny Owls  9.5.14

Boreal Owls 23.5.14
Hawk Owls 6.6.14

Elf Owls 20.6.14
Barn Owls 27.6.14
Snowy Owls 11.7.14

 

Please can we remind parents to use the hall back doors to come in so as not to block the entrance and where the children come in. Also if you are running late, the children are now presenting their assembly from that end of the hall and coming in the school doors would disturb the performance.

If your child uses the School Bus service, but you have come to sharing assembly and are taking them home PLEASE inform the office or the staff taking the bus register. We are often keeping the bus waiting while we look for children supposed to be on the bus and find they have already left.
