School Uniform Day for Haiti

I am very pleased to announce we raised £350 on out school uniform day for Haiti. The money will be donated to Unicef.

Reception Meet Mrs Armitage

Reception children enjoyed a visit to ‘Mrs Armitage’s’ house on Thursday as part of their learning journey. Mrs Armitage is a story book character who rides a rather unusual bicycle.

Brighton Library Request Return of Book

A current Year 4 child borrowed ‘Batman – Gotham Adventures’ by Ty Templeton last year but has not returned the book. The library is urgently requesting the return of the book. Please could everyone check to see if they have the book at home and either return it to us of directly to Brighton Jubilee library.

Home Computer Grant

You may or may not be aware that the Government has set up a programme that helps eligible low-income families to buy a computer and Internet access. If you wish for more information please refer to last week’s Friday News or ask at the office

A Funny Thing Happened

A funny thing happened in assembly to day! An alien arrived from outer space and told us all about the Thunderkids Superdads club in school this Saturday. He invited children to bring along their dads, male carers, granddads uncles etc for activities and fun.
The club is free and is ideal for children aged 5 to 10. The children get to have a go at a variety of activities with their dads, male carers and or male relatives with some time built in for the men to get together for some grown up chat. The session is held in the hall at Middle Street on Saturday February 6th starting at 9.00 and ending at 12.00. Drop in for the morning if you are interested.

On Time Teds

The winners this week are Reception and Years 3 and 4. Well done all three classes.

Subsidised Afterschool Care Club Fees

Starfish Kids Club who collect children from Middle Street are able to offer subsidised afterschool care places. They can offer a reduced fee from £9.45 per session to £3.00 per session. If your child is eligible for free school meals then they are eligible for the reduced rate sessions. Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. For bookings and further information contact Dale Maloney on 01273 719520.

Sad News

Some of you may remember Mrs Amerena who used to come in and help the younger children with reading and sewing activities. She was a very kind old lady who gained a lot of pleasure spending time at Middle Street before she became unwell. We also appreciated her help and kindness so it is with sadness I am you that Mrs Amerena died the week before last. Mrs Denyer kindly represented Middle Street at the funeral.

Half Term Holiday

School closes for the half term break at 3.05 pm on Friday 12th February and re-opens on Monday 22nd February.
