On Monday 15th January Year 5 took part in an Electro City Builders Science and Technology workshop. The children created and built their own city using lots of LEGO® bricks. They then used their knowledge gained in Science lessons about series and parallel circuits to light up it up. It was a fantastic day, enjoyed by all.

During their trip to Waddesdon Manor in December, the Reception Year
children spent some time making their own Christmas decoration and learning how to decorate and assemble it.

They also visited the house itself and had great fun finding the numbered
baubles in each room. They enjoyed looking at all the spectacularly
decorated rooms, particularly enjoying the bathroom with the seal in the
bath tub!

In January 2018  Year 1 pupils enjoyed a very informative visit to St. Mary’s Church in Whaddon. They learned how Christians use the building for their faith, as well as developing their knowledge about local historical places. The children took part in a hunt for unusual artefacts, and then returned to observe, draw and colour their most interesting ‘finds.’ They represented MKPS so well that the churchwarden has already invited them back again!

Christmas Fair December 2017

The Christmas Fair was a memorable and enjoyable afternoon, with stalls, games, challenges and Santa’s Grotto.  It was a fantastic afternoon and thanks must go to the ladies of the Parents’ Association for its organisation and huge success.  £1400 was raised for the Children’s Ward at Milton Keynes Hospital.  Thank you to everyone else who helped and supported the occasion!

Our U11 Football and Hockey teams travelled to Arnhem on Monday 16th October for our annual Sports Tour.

They stayed in the National Sports Centre at the Papendal Hotel. All the children received top coaching at Vitesse Football Club and Upward Hockey Club. The boys played some impressive football and won all their games whilst the girls received a masterclass from the junior Dutch teams and fought back to win their last match. They also had a fantastic day at the Efteling Theme Park. A memorable week was had by everyone and we are now deciding where to go next year.

On Friday 13th October the school supported the World Wildlife Fund’s “Wear It Wild” day and pupils dressed up in their chosen wild animal costumes, making a donation to the charity. During the day there were birds of prey shows, where the children learnt about a variety of birds of prey and were able to handle some of them.

In the morning the Parents’ Association ran a Cake Sale with a wildlife theme, the profits of which were divided between the WWF and Milton Keynes Hospital Children’s Ward.
