'Learning together for a better tomorrow'

Y1OB

Welcome to Year 1OB

 

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.

Prize Day.

 

Mrs Magee who is retiring after 23 years in Millington presented the children with their prizes.

Super Duper to our class winners for overall achievement in Literacy, Numeracy, ICT and Endeavour.  Though there were only four children who achieved the awards you were all amazing and have worked extremely hard throughout the year - Well Done to you all!

On behalf of the Foundation Stage 

we presented a cheque of £250.00 to The Down’s Association.

This money was donated by the children in Year 1 and 2 by wearing silly socks to school.

Well Done Everyone - this money will go towards helping others.

A huge thank you to Mrs Young (Karlee’s Granny) a radiographer who works in the Royal Hospital Belfast.  She kindly gave up her time to come into school to tell the children in Y1OB all about her job- making links to the community related to our topic People who Help us.

Mrs Young told the children about her job and how she takes x-rays and scans of adults and children and explained to the children if they need to go to the x-Ray department there is no need to be scared or frightened.  The children got lots of opportunities to look at the detail of x-ray pictures, bones, teeth and a face mask which is used when having a detailed scan of your face.  Mrs Young also showed the children the procedures of getting a cast on and how it is placed in hot water and how it moulds into shape to suit the size and shape of your body part.

The children were very engaged and focused throughout Mrs Young’s visit.  Well Done Boys and Girls in Y1OB you listened extremely well and had lovely manners .  Once again Thank you so much to Mrs Young you were Amazing with the children and we learnt a lot about your job,

KS1 and FS had an assembly about crossing bridges. Mrs Hampton, Mrs McGeehan, Mrs Neill and Mrs Jeffers had to cross the bridge an upside bench and explain how the felt having to cross it with everyone watching.  They described that they were afraid, nervous, scared, frightened, didn’t want to fail.

The bench was turned so that the bridge they were crossing was wider and the four ladies were confident and happy to go across it.

Just like us we will be crossing new bridges and moving to new classes. It might be a time that may cause anxiousness  but try not to be.  In Millington we are all one big family and everyone is here to help each other to cross the bridge and be happy.

World Around Us

Visit to Clementsmount Farm.

We all had an amazing time at the farm,

seeing all the different animals and

getting the opportunity to feed and pet some.

Play time outdoors was on the bouncy pillow, crazy golf,

circuit course, football, play houses with large tractors and 

the large go-karts.

Indoors, was the soft play area which was great fun and all the children

had lots of energy to burn.

 

Well done to all the children you all were extremely well behaved 

and I was proud to say you were Millington Children!
