Year 6 – da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci (Born in Vinci, Italy, 15 April 1452 died on 2 May 1519 in Amboise, France) was a famous artist. Besides painter, sculptor and architect, he was also an inventor, engineer, and much, much more. It is said that he is the best example in history of  someone who can do everything.

He invented the first tank and created the  first designs for the helicopter.  Both of these modes of transport are used in the modern day.  After his death, he was buried in the chapel of the Chateau d’Amboise.

Our curriculum is bespoke to us and is driven by the fact that we want children to leave the Mill secure in their own identity; familiar with their own community and sense of family; skilled in making connections with friends and the wider world.
Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. We continuously reflect on the best practice there is available in order to have the greatest impact.
Our regular newsletters are one of many ways that we celebrate their amazing successes, hard work and adventures. We always love to share how 'Forever Proud' we are of the children in The Mill community.
