We hope that you have all found our ‘New Covid Curriculum’ a positive change, thank you to everyone that has sent us supportive feedback this week. This has again cemented that this new curriculum is a more manageable and sustainable way of our young people continuing their learning journey from home at this time.

We have received lots of photos from MHS pupils this week showing us some of learning activities you have taken part in, staff love seeing what you are all getting up to so thank you for sending them in and please keep them coming. 

The Sport and Expressive Arts Faculty have had some brilliant theatre reviews in from yr 7 and 8 over the past few weeks.  Pupils were asked to watch a musical (streamed live on youtube if possible) and write about all the different ‘theatre’ ingredients that go into making a show then give their own opinion  Here is a snapshot of some of the work we have already had in!
Any pupils who have not yet done the work may be interested in watching Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Cats’ (original version) which is being streamed tonight on his Youtube page. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdmPjhKMaXNNeCr1FjuMvag

We are currently working really hard on a makeover for our Year 6 transition website page. For all those pupils about to transition to Milford Haven School, we know that our website is usually a fantastic source of information to help guide you through this process. With the current situation we are facing this year transition will look very different for our Year 6 pupils, and so alot of the information currently on the page will not be applicable.

Please keep your eyes peeled as we are aiming by the end of the month to have rejigged the page and uploaded some helpful resources specifically to support all those families joining Milford Haven School this year. 

Your teachers and some MHS pupils have been busy recording chapters of ‘Stormbreaker’ over the past few weeks, and you are invited to read the book with us, just listen, or both!

A link to the book is on the Book Club Classroom (you will need to register) and there are so many books for you to read for free. If you would like to join, then the Classroom code is: txkjpx3

Maybe the whole family could listen in? There is also a great film of the book available too.
Look out for more collaborations coming soon!
