Arundel Wetlands

The children in Year 4 had a lovely day in Arundel on Wednesday. They were able to feed some birds and do lots exploring and finding out activities. The day was enjoyed by all and they were very lucky with the weather.

Meet the Author

On Thursday morning Years 5 and 6 had a fabulous time at the Old Market Arts Centre. The morning started with a musical recital and some musical games by two members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. The above was then followed by the author Michael Cox reading some of his material and sharing his skills as a writer. The children were also treated to a buffet lunch before returning to school.
The children have been writing e-mails to Michael Cox. You can read the Children’s and Michael’s e-mails and the replies on the school web site.

Murderous Maths

This morning the children in Year 6 were once again at the Old Market Arts Centre, along with the children from year 4. They were there for a wonderful performance from the best selling author and maths magician Kjartan Poskitt writer of the excellent Murderous Maths series.

Dentist Visit

Year 3 had a very interesting visit to a local dental surgery this afternoon learning all about dental hygiene and how a dental practise works. All the children were very well behaved (no fillings were required.) Ms Busby was very proud of them all.

Withdean Stadium

Year 5 & 6 were the first two classes to go to Withdean this week for their P.E. lessons. All the children in KS2 will be taking it in turns to go to Withdean. Next week it will be the turn of years 4 & 5 so please make sure your child has their P.E kit in school with suitable footwear and a light weight coat in case of rain.

Guided Reading Books

We are in the process of organising our guided reading books. Please check your bookcases at home for any books with the Middle Street stamp inside. Please send any you find into school. In future, group reading books will have a special guided reading sticker inside the front cover.
