A few issues ago I wrote about the need for Millfield to recruit additional teachers for September due to the growth of Littleport; on just one day we were asked by the LA Admissions team to admit 15 additional children in September, in addition to those who had already been given reception places. We are now welcoming 4 new teachers. The growth of Littleport has also had an impact on our Nursery. Nearing the end…

‘There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: one is roots. The other is wings.’ – Hodding Carter Jr. A Collection of Poems. I love this quote, because for all the noise and chatter of the modern-day world it cuts through to two simple truths that have guided parents, carers and educators throughout history. The quote highlights two important roles that those who bring up and work with children, of all ages, should…

‘Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened’ Dr Seuss The end of the academic year provides a great opportunity to reflect on all of the wonderful things that have happened over the course of the year. Inevitably, there will be a few tears shed from both the adults and children as they move on to their next chapter but the quote above from Dr Seuss encourages us to take pleasure in the fact…

There have been a number of inspirational events happening in school recently.

In my 8 years as Headteacher at Millfield, the Highfields housing development has always been ‘in progress’ – sometimes there has been lots of building activity and at other times, the building sector has been going through quieter times. In the last few months it feels as though, all of a sudden, the Highfields development is nearing its completion. How true this actually is, I don’t know, but certainly houses have been springing up on…

Christmas now seems a long time ago, however, as always in school, it was lovely… if very busy! Particularly memorable were the reception nativity, our carol service at St George’s and out singers who visit residents at The Grange every year to sing carols. Since my last piece for Littleport Life children at school have been fortunate to take part in a number of sporting and enrichment activities that bring the curriculum to life and…

Late summer and autumn brings a host of species to your local Wetland Centre, resulting in a busy time for the reserve team, as we ensure the habitats are just right to receive them. For the birdwatchers, this is the best time to look out for migrating birds, as they travel from their summer breeding grounds to warmer climes for the winter. By lowering the water levels on the pools, we can create muddy patches…
