Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

Welcome back to you all and a warm welcome to the new families who have joined the school this term. I hope you had a fun and enjoyable Christmas and that Santa left everything you wished for.

Take a Look at Black Lion Street

You will find new blue railings in Black Lion Street that have been designed by Middle Street children. They are also inscribed with amazing poems written by the children. At one end of the railings is a black lion, which was designed by Harry Fancy in Year 5.
The railings are quite amazing and we are so proud of the children involved in the design.

Children Interviewed on BBC Southern Counties Radio

BBC Southern Counties will feature Middle Street as their school of the week next week. They chatted to Toby and Lily from Reception, Alfie and Nadeen from Year 1 and Lucy and Jody from Year 2. You can listen in the afternoons at 3.35 on 95.3 FM to hear what they had to say, or listen live online at

Learning Journey Feedback

Thank you so much to all those parents and carers who have returned the Learning Journey feedback questionnaires. Such a lot of effort and thought has clearly gone into the answers and comments which has really been helpful along with some good ideas and suggestions for the future. If you haven’t returned your feedback questionnaire it’s not too late to do so.
The children have also been feeding back either as a whole class or as individuals. Their comments have been very positive and insightful too. I will be sending home a summary of the responses next week.

On Time Teds

The winners this week are Year 1 and Year 3. Well done to both year groups and their punctual parents and carers.

Homework Club at Library

Children may be interested to know of a homework club that is currently running at the Jubilee Library. The club is a drop in service for children aged 9 to 16 and runs on Mondays after school 3.30 – 5 pm

A Reminder to Wrap Up Warm!

It is very cold at the moment (stating the obvious I know) so please ensure your child has warm enough clothing for the outdoors. They are outside twice a day for breaks. The younger children are also out at other times. They should also wear shoes that are suitable and warm enough for the icy conditions we have been experiencing lately.

Congratulations to..

Tyus Thiruchelvam in Year 2 who has achieved his Level 3 National Swimming Award. Well done Tyus!

Half Term Break

School closes on Friday 13th February at 3.00 for the half term break. Children return to school on Monday 23rd February
