Grassed Boyces Street!

Mr Collins and I have attempted to super glue the grass to the road in Boyces Street and we’ve padlocked all the plants to the walls and fences. Now we’ve finally got some greenery we don’t want to lose it! What a great start to the day and what a difference a bit of pretend grass makes. It was very amusing to see everyone’s faces as they turned into Boyces Street. Every face turned into a beaming smile which was wonderful to see. Lots of you have walked or cycled to school this week including staff so it has been great to celebrate the end of Walk to School Week with today’s activities. Take a look at BBC South and Meridian tonight we should be on the television.

Tag Rugby Tournament

The Middle Street Tag Rugby team played extremely well on Monday at Hove Rugby Club. The team made it through to the semi- finals Their coach was so impressed with how quickly they learnt the game and how skilled they became despite having little space to practice in at Middle Street he awarded each player a medal as well as a certificate. Well done to them all!
