Summer Fair

It rained but we didn’t care! Thank you to everyone who came along to our summer fair on Saturday. I think it is safe to say that we all had lots of fun. The performers in the talent contest were fabulous with a whole variety of acts. The joint winners of a place on a performing arts summer school run by ‘BStarz’ Academy were Liylah  in year 3,Dolly Roc in Year 2 and Millie in Year 5, Congratulations to Liylah, Dolly Roc and Millie!

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Jo and her trusty team of parents who put on this fabulous event for us and raised well over a £1000 for the school. THANK YOU!

Performing Arts Week

We began the week with the Ceilidh on Tuesday. The Middle Street violinists played for us with Mr Brazil on the guitar, Mrs Layzell called the dances and parents, children and staff danced. We even had a real live Scotsman in a kilt playing the bagpipes for us.

On Thursday morning we enjoyed year 5’s sound makers  performance. Year 5 performed 2 pieces of music which they composed themselves. The second piece is a new Middle Street song which was written by Year 5. In the afternoon we enjoyed performances from the little ones right up to Year 6. Well done to all our superstar children!

Key Stage 1 Mini Olympics

Year 2 joined in with a mini Olympics event at BAHSVIC on Monday. The children were a real credit to the school. Their behaviour and team spirit was exceptional. Ms Busby felt very proud of them all. They took part in a variety of sporting activities. To mark the event the class appeared in the Argus newspaper on Wednesday.
