Cross Country Event

Well done to all the children who took part in the Brighton and Hove schools cross country event last Saturday. Middle Street was very successful with Ateya winning the Year 6 small schools girls race and the Year 6 girls team coming 2nd overall. The Year 5 boys were brilliant and the whole team were a credit to the school. Well done to everyone. Thank you to Miss Bish and Ms Busby who accompanied the children to the event.

Parents Consultation Meetings

Thank you to all those parents and carers who took the time to come in for our consultation evenings. Your attendance at these meetings is really appreciated and I hope helpful and interesting for you finding out about your child’s learning progress. If you were unable to make the meeting but would like to discuss your child’s progress please contact the class teacher to arrange a time to meet.

On Time Teds

The winners this week are in the Infants; Year 2 with 1 late mark and in the Juniors year 3 with 2 late marks Well done to both classes for being so very punctual.

Sing a long a Middle Street

Mr Brazil and I think it would be a fun idea to hold sing along sessions on a Friday morning before school starts. Children, parents and staff are welcome to join in. Mr Brazil will be in the hall from about 8.20 until 8.40 on Friday mornings where he will be singing familiar songs which we can join in with. Singing is a great way to start the day and kicks off all those endorphins in your body making you feel good to be alive. So pop in to the hall when you arrive and join in with the singing.

Please Tie Hair Back

If you are a boy or a girl with long hair please tie your hair back to protect yourself and others from headlice.

Years 5 and 6 who took part in a creative writing workshop led by Bandbazi. The children watched a short film about a young asylum seeker and then wrote messages to be hung on a special tree on display at Jubilee Library. Do go along to the library to read the thoughtful messages from Middle Street children hanging alongside messages from young asylum seekers. You can add your own message to the tree.
