'Learning together for a better tomorrow'


smiley  Welcome to Year 1 OB   smiley


A child is like a butterfly in the wind.

Some can fly higher than others,

but each one flies the best it can.


Why compare one against the other?

Each one is different.

Each one is special.

Each one is beautiful.

We walked to Taylors Opticans and were

greeted by Mrs Taylor who teaches Y5 in Millington.

She explained to us the importance of

keeping our eyes healthy and showed us

the foods that we should eat!

Mr Taylor the Optican explained how he tested

your eyes and some children got the

check the letters on the screen using

special glasses and we also got to

try on very trendy glasses.


Having your Eyes Tested is vitally IMPORTANT

and all children get FREE EYE CHECKS.


Taylors Opticans are offering a

FREE GIFT to ALL CHILDREN to have their

eyes tested in his Practice.

Visit Mr Taylor and tell him you are

from Millington!


Thank you very much to Mr & Mrs Taylor

and all the staff in Taylors Opticans

who kindly gave up

their time to accommodate all the Year 1

children in Millington.

A Sincere Thank you once again!

Year 3 Assembly - The Selfish Ladybird




Year 3 explained to the whole school during their performance about a ladybird who was selfish and didn't like to share!

Thankfully her friends taught her not to be selfish and she became a happy  again with lots of friends!

Moral of story - good friends share and be kind to each other!

Mrs Gill taught Y1 OB a clapping rhyme about Good Manners!

Portadown Fire Fighters visit Millington.

Special Thanks to the crew who took the time for all the children. 

I think some of the crew wanted to be back

in school as they had fun playing tennis -

reliving child hood memories!!!

They told us about their job and allowed us to

squirt water using their heavy hose.

The children were able to sit in the fire engine

and Mrs Ogilby-Black dressed up as a

Fight Fighter... unfortunately not in 30 seconds as challenged

by the crew which is the time it takes to dress when they are called out!

Task for the children...

Ask a grown up to check that they each have a 

working fire alarm - by testing it, to make sure it still works!!


A very enjoyable and informative morning.

Once again Thanks to All the Fire Fighters

in Portadown Station.

We had a special visitor in school today to chat to us about his job as a fire fighter.  Mr Toal is a full time fire fighter and also a teacher and quite often teaches in Millington.

He explained to the children about keeping safe and his very important job. He brought in his clothing to show what he wears and the importance of dressing quickly.  The children were able to ask questions and all were extremely well behaved for our visitor - Well Done.

Thank you so much Mr Toal for giving up your time to chat to the children.
