Friday 22nd May

Good morning young men of Millgate,

Today is the final day of remote learning ahead of su​mmer half term (make it count 🙂).  Enjoy your week off and stay safe. 

Lockdown, despite the obvious restrictions and negatives such as McDonald's being shut, has offered many positives.  Below are a few that may apply to you.

  1. I appreciate time outside to exercise more 
  2. I miss things about education and being at school
  3. Greater appreciation of the NHS and other key workers. 
  4. I say "thank you" more
  5. My independent study skills have improved. 
  6. Developing stronger relationships at home
  7. Learning new skills such as cooking a meal, making cakes or decorating

In shipping the carry weight is known as "deadweight tonnage", or DWT to those in the industry.  

DWT is the sum of the weights of cargo, fuel, fresh water, ballast water (for balance), provisions, passengers and crew. In Ieuan's creation, DWT is made up from a pirate raid of the kitchen cupboards. 

Thanks to Suraj and the Maths faculty for a fun challenge.

This week is National Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is Kindness

Sarah, Nicola and pastoral TA’s will share some ideas of how you can fill it up!

Wednesday 13th May

Good morning young men of Millgate,

One of the “ambitions” the Prime Minister made on Sunday was that he hoped school children would get a month of schooling before the summer holiday, It is important to remember it is an ambition not a certainty. What is a certainty, is that you will only return to Millgate School when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

Good morning young men of Millgate,

How are you going to spend your 1 hour of lock down time outside today?  Walk, run, cycle?  Remember - healthy body, healthy mind!

Friday is a bank holiday due to VE Day, so no school or home learning tomorrow.  Back to usual on Monday. 

VE Day celebrates the end of WW2, 75 years ago.  The formal acceptance by the Allies of Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender of its armed forces was on Tuesday, 8 May 1945.  Huge celebrations were triggered across the UK and many other countries.
