CreaƟve Millfields
Firstly a huge than you to all the parents, carers and members of the wider school community who visited the Art ExhibiƟon: ‘Shadows and Light’ in St James Church on Tuesday. The
display of the children’s artwork was breath-taking, and the ambiance created in the church
was of a calm and peaceful space to that enabled the work to be viewed like a real art gallery. Well done to everyone involved, but a special menƟon to Rebecca who coordinated the
whole exhibiƟon. A comment from one of our governors sums it up, ‘The conceptual
strength, the level of collaboraƟon, of community and parent involvement, the contemporary sense of installaƟon, recreated space... I could go on. It was stunning.’ And from one of
the parents, ‘CongratulaƟons to all the children involved in the Shadows and Light show,
what a triumph! All contribuƟons spectacular, both my children were deeply proud to show
me around the church and the middle hall to see the exhibits. The London skyline should be
retained for show.’ And indeed, we are hoping that it can be on show again and have a provisional date for the work to be displayed in the Saatchi Gallery and possibly the Whitechapel
Gallery too. It is very exciƟng! Also, if you have not yet been to see the Nursery and RecepƟon work in the middle hall, please come in aŌer school and have a look at the ‘Sky Wall’. –it
too, looks amazing.
We have also had a very busy sporƟng week. Twenty children from KS1 took part in the HTSA
Sports day at Clapton Academy yesterday. They had an amazing Ɵme –all got a medal and tshort for taking part in a variety of events including trampolining, games and athleƟc events.
We also had some first, second and third place medal winners, as well as the top award that
was for outstanding performance throughout the day –well done to Sabrina Muhiddin from
Manchester Class who took home a lovely trophy. Also, this week, the Year 5 and 6 pupils
took part in an inter-schools cross-country compeƟƟon. Well done to everyone who took
part. There is another race next week, and we will know the overall results aŌer this. And
tomorrow, the boys football team will be taking part in a inter-borough cup tournament, so I
look forward to leƫng you know how they get on next week. Thank you to Sharon Williams
for her conƟnued enthusiasm and support as the events would not happen without her!
Finally, I hope you have received the form to sign up for this year’s Hackney Schools’ Challenge Run as part of the half marathon. It was a great success last year, and Millfields had
the largest number of parƟcipants –let’s do the same again this year! Please return the forms
and the £5 entrance fee to Heidi as soon as you can. Morning runs will start aŌer half term
to get you all in shape for the final event. The actual race takes place on Sunday 10th May.
Have a good weekend, and maybe there will be snow! I hope so as the children are talking
about it and hoping for a white playground next week!
Best Wishes, Jane
