P7 did an outstanding job of leading the whole school in various outdoor activities today. They worked hard in their groups to develop activities that took into account the abilities of all their fellow pupils from P1-P7. Teamwork was very important and they were able to show and develop their teamwork skills while doing this. They organised and resourced everything perfectly and were very professional running it on the day. Feedback from pupils and staff has been overwhelmingly positive!
Well done all P7s – you were outstanding.
Here are some pictures from today. I’m sure there will be more to follow.
It has been an exciting time in P1 this week. Leo brought in some dinosaur eggs and we have been watching them hatch throughout the week! We have learned a new word too – submerged. Eilidh knew that we had to keep the eggs submerged in water to enable them to hatch. It has been very exciting keeping track of their progress during the week.
The P7s have been working hard organising tomorrow’s Outdoor Learning Day. The whole school will be in mixed groups taking part in the interesting activities we have come up with and will run. There will be events such as challenges will loose parts, a shape hunt, yoga and parachute games.
This event will be going ahead whatever the weather so please make sure you come to school properly prepared for a day outside – jacket and sensible shoes are a must!
We hope you will all enjoy tomorrow!

This week, every class have been focused on a part of The Millbank Way. P6 and p2 were both looking at how we listen to learn. We worked really hard together to design and prepare posters for a presentation at assembly today.
The p6 pupils really enjoyed the responsibility of helping the p2 children.
We presented our finished posters at assembly and a few of the p6 pupils explained how we listen to learn. They said “We listen to our teachers by looking at them and not talking over them so we can learn” and “we listen to our classmates so we can learn from each other”.
The staff and pupils in the Sparkle Class kindly taught us how to use sign language to say “I listen to learn”. We demonstrated this at assembly and everyone in the school gave it a go!
Well done p6 and p2 for working so well together! Here are a few photos showing hardworking pairs.

Here is a lovely picture of P2/3 and P6/7A practising together for assembly this week. They then performed the song in front of the rest of the school at this week’s assembly
As a Christmas fundraising idea, this year we would very much like to produce and sell a Millbank Recipe Book. This will make a lovely Christmas gift and be special because it will contain recipes from our Millbank families.
Depending on the response, we will hopefully be able to sort the recipes into categories such as:
Cakes and Biscuits
Obviously at this point we should be stressing the importance of a healthy diet – however, we are also firm believers of the occasional treat and a balanced diet!
If you have a favourite family recipe that you would like to be included in our recipe book please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a title (e.g. “Granny’s special apple pie”, “Jackie’s perfect pancakes”, “Yummy chocolate brownies”) and please ensure that your recipe has clear ingredients and instructions. Also include your child/children’s name(s) for inclusion in the book. Alternatively send the recipes to school with your child or bring one along to parents’ night.
Please could all recipes be forwarded to the school by Friday 12th October.
The hope is that we get enough recipes to fill a recipe book and it will be printed by a fundraising company and returned to us for sale in November.
P5 have been keeping healthy by doing their ‘Healthy Hearts’ daily mile fitness challenge in the mornings.
