Mylnhurst’s Got Talent

We certainly have got talent!

We were overwhelmed by the amazing talent on show this year. Such a variety of acts; musicians, dancers, singers, actors, gymnasts and many more.

The children worked well together in groups and must have dedicated a large amount of their time to rehearsing the acts as they really were of a very high standard.

We had guest judges this year ‘Jack and Joel’ who are 2 members of ‘Out of the Blue’ from Oxford University. Over the course of the day the children took part in mini workshops where they had voice training and learnt some beat boxing which they enjoyed immensely. We were also treated to two inspirational performances from the boys.

World Book Day

A fantastic day was had by all in our World book day celebrations. The costumes were amazing and so varied!

We began our exciting day with a whole school assembly, we were overwhelmed by the fabulous costumes all in one room. It was most interesting trying to guess which teacher was which underneath their extremely elaborate costumes! Each class then went on to complete their own book themed activities as well as visiting the library for a scheduled story time with Mrs Tuff and Mrs Lomas.

Excitement built as the day went on to try to spot the mystery character who had been invited into school. The first sighting was in the outdoor classroom, followed by many other sightings around the school campus. The Grufallo’s child appeared in the woods, at classroom windows, at the dining room and many other locations – she was everywhere!

We all really enjoyed sharing our favourite books with each other, a really special day.

Science Week

Monday 14th March  – Friday 18th March 2016

What an amazing week we had!

We began the week by welcoming the Education Group into school. Our forensic scientist shared her skills to help us to think like real life detectives. We were wowed by her knowledge and her insight into the crimes that she has helped solve and we gained a real understanding of the importance of scientific facts as evidence in real life crime cases. We then began looking for our own evidence in the case of the ‘school break in!’DSC_0214

We began by cordoning off the crime scene and using our magnifying glasses, we looked for clues. We found fingerprints to help eliminate some of the suspects and we then found some real incriminating evidence – a handkerchief which we believed to have DNA samples on it. The plot thickened at this point as we realised that we had 2 suspects in line for the robbery as twins have the same DNA. To solve the robbery we then looked back at the fingerprints and found that one twin had a whorl and the other twin had a loop, enabling us to name the thief.

The remainder of the week was filled with exciting science; some linked to St Patrick’s day, others linked to our current science topics while others were just an exciting insight into the wonderful world of science!
