In October, Year 4 pupils visited Verulamium Museum in St Albans to support their Roman Britain topic. They learnt about everyday life during Roman times, were given a talk about the wonderful mosaics displayed in the museum and had an exciting opportunity to handle real Roman objects.
Jennifer Howells, Senior Community Events and Fundraiser at Milton Keynes Hospital, came to assembly today at MKPS to receive a cheque for the Children’s Ward for £5,100. The money was raised in 2017- 2018 through events organised in school and by the Parents’ Association such as the Christmas Fair, as well as various cake sales and raffles, retiring collections at school productions and refreshments at events.
Ms Howells gave a presentation to the pupils, showing them how the money might be spent, eg. to improve the wards aesthetically, to buy medical equipment and to purchase educational equipment for children who could not leave their beds.

This week our under 11 girls’ cricket team competed in their first tournament, which was held at Rugby School. They played impressively and were beaten just by 5 runs. Congratulations to them on a superb performance – and a fantastic start to girls’ cricket at MKPS!
