Summer Fair

We are all looking forward to the Summer Fair tomorrow and hope that the weather will be glorious for us. The fun starts at midday and continues until 3.00pm and includes a great many different stalls, a raffle with some fantastic prizes and the highlight of the event – ‘Middle Street’s Got Talent’. This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to show off their talents. So bring lots of money and we’ll see you there to join in the fun.

Year 2 Assembly

On Tuesday Year 2 showed off their sporting skills during their assembly. They have been working on a multi-skills programme led by Dorothy Stringer Sports College during the last two terms. They were awarded certificates during the assembly for all of their hard work.

Arts Mark Awards

On Thursday Sivan and Ella from Year 6 joined Mrs Aldous and Miss Moriarty at the Corn Exchange in order to receive our Artsmark Gold Award. We are extremely pleased to receive this award for our continued commitment to the arts as we value all of the creative work that we do at Middle Street. It is great for us to receive this recognition for the hard work that we do.

On Time Teds

The winners of the On Time Teds for this week are Year 2 and Year 3. Congratulations to those two classes.

Year 4 Trip

On Thursday Year 4 enjoyed their trip to the Fishing Museum on Brighton seafront. This visit was related to their learning journey on shipwrecks.

Year 5 Learning Journey

Year 5 have been learning all about rivers and water for their learning journey over the past two weeks. During this time they have visited Cuckmere Haven and visited the Jubilee Library in order to research the topic even further. They learnt even more with a visit from Southern Water on Monday, where the emphasis was on water conservation.
