Millbank Primary School

Growing Together To Be Our Best


In Year 1, we love celebrating other cultures and religions. We learnt about Diwali in November and more recently we learnt about Ramadan and Eid from our classmates. We embrace diversity and regularly read books and have discussions about recognising our individual differences.


Over the year, we have been developing our outdoor area and we have enjoyed planting our new fruit trees and pansies. We are learning how to care for living things. During our Hansel and Gretel topic, we will be learning about different birds and making bird feeders. 


In the Autumn term, our CF5 topic allowed us to become more aware of our local area and surroundings and the history of our school. We learnt more about the history of Ely and why our school logo is of a bridge and a water mill. We loved our local walk to Ely bridge!
