Visit to Mrs Armitage

Nursery and reception children have all enjoyed a visit to Mrs Armitages house. They travelled on the bus and then joined Mrs Armitage for a drink and a slice of cake. The children asked Mrs Armitage lots of questions and also found out how to mend a puncture. Thank you, Mrs Armitage for inviting the children for a visit.

Year 5 meet Sports Reporter

Children in Year 5 had lots of questions for Paul Hayward a sports writer for a national newspaper when he visited the school today. Paul shared his enjoyment of his job and the pressure and excitement of meeting newspaper deadlines. Mr Brazil shared some of the children’s impressive sports writing with Paul.

On Time Teds

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Year 2 with 3 late marks and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Years 6 with 1 late mark. Fabulous! Well done to both classes for excellent punctuality.

‘Who Am I’ Group

After the half term break we will be running a group for children aimed at exploring their sense of identity. The idea is to help children understand and feel positive about who they are. A letter was sent home yesterday regarding this group. If you did not receive the letter please ask your child or ask at the office for a copy.

Funding for Gardening Club

The Brighton and Hove Food Partnership have awarded the school £200 as part of their Harvest Schools project aimed at helping schools to develop their growing spaces. Our space is small but we are eager to develop the area and grow more. Mrs Purdy is our keen gardener so she is very pleased to receive the funding for the Middle Street gardening club to make use of.

Secondary School Admissions Process Review

The meeting will take place at Middle Street on Friday 3rd February at 9.15 – 10.30. The meeting will be hosted by an independent consultant; Ian Nockolds. We still have 4 places available to parents and carers to attend this meeting. Please let Mr Smart know if you would like to join it would be a shame to miss this opportunity to share your views on secondary school admissions process.

Holiday Date Confusion

There has been a little confusion regarding the date we finish for the summer break. To clarify this for you we finish for the summer break on Friday 20th July. I know many of you will be wanting to book your summer holiday if you haven’t already done so.
