Millfields offer a variety of activity clubs outside school hours. These give children the opportunity to try new activities or reinforce skills they already have. These clubs run throughout the year and constantly change to meet the needs of the children. Children can choose from Multiskills, Country Dancing, Badminton, Tennis, Football, Music Tuition, French Club, Singing and many others as the year passes.
Being close to the town centre, the school has been able to develop strong links with local churches. Members of the church regularly visit the school to deliver assemblies and work with the children on special projects. Festivals and special occasions, such as Easter and Christmas, are celebrated together with children and parents in the church.
We pride ourselves on offering a broad and engaging curriculum. Teachers plan together and include educational visits and visitors into their curriculum plan. This may also involve working with outside agents to deliver special projects, for example during the WW1 topic in KS2 the children worked with an artist in residence on a memorial sculpture, and as part of sports development project children visited London to play football on the grass outside the Houses of Parliament. Children have danced and sang at Worcester Cathedral. The breadth and variety of projects we provide at Millfields has helped us to achieve the Arts Mark Gold Award.
Music at Millfields
Each academic year we work with a specialist musician or vocalist to help develop the children’s skills. This musician works with all children across the school. Throughout the year we extend and enrich the children’s opportunities to develop their musical skills and experiences. This takes its form through performing at local concerts, working alongside local middle schools, working with the Ex-Cathedra group and providing the children with the opportunity to learn an instrument or join the choir.
