Year 3 and Year 4 Enterprise Day

Children from Years 3 and 4 have had a very successful enterprise week. They have held a recycled fashion show (which was fabulous, I’m sure Vivienne Westwood would be interested!) made and sold beads, valentine cards, cakes all to raise money for their chosen charities ‘Child Action’ and ‘World of Difference’. I’m not sure how much has been raised yet but I’ll let you know when I do. Well done years 3 and 4!

Goodbye Mr Dyer

Mr Dyer had a wonderful afternoon tea and was delighted that so many parents and children could join him. It was also a delight for us all to see so many ex-pupils who came along too. Some of them were taller than us! It was such a special treat to see what lovely, mature young people they had grown up to be. Mr Dyer was very flattered they had taken the trouble to come in to school to see him. Mr Dyer was presented with cards and gifts from parents, children and staff. Mr Dyer there will always be a little bit of you at the heart of Middle Street. Thank you for everything and good luck for the future!

Nursery Explorers

If you have any unwanted old cameras, mobile phones, purses or anything interesting for nursery children to put in their explorer bags please donate to nursery or hand in at the school office. Everything will be gratefully received.

Garden Help Needed

We have been awarded a grant from ‘Food Partnership’. We have bought a new cooker (one that actually cooks things properly rather than burning!) but we also plan to spend some of the funding on our front garden area. Mrs Purdy would like some muscular volunteers to help with building raised beds from sleepers which are very, very heavy. We also need to have some shrubs removed. So please come and help. Volunteers step forward and let the office know if you can help and we’ll put you in touch with Mrs Purdy.

Level 1 and 2 Cycle Training

Cycle training takes place at Preston Park and Hove Park on Monday 17th February until Friday 21st February. The sessions start at 10 am until lunchtime. The training is aimed at children from age 9 to 14. Places are limited and are on a first come first served basis. Please contact Emily Tester on 01273 293847 to book a place.
