Art Gallery

Lots of parents visited the art gallery on Monday and were extremely impressed with the stunning displays. The children had worked very hard the week before to get everything ready. I would like to thank Debs Knight for setting up the art gallery and giving everyone an opportunity to share the wonderful work of the school in this way.

Silent Auction

Year 6 are holding a silent auction for their Rainforest inspired art work displayed in the hall corridor. If you wish to bid for a piece, the form to complete is in the office. All the money raised is going towards saving some of the rain forests.

Athletics Meeting

The Middle Street athletics team had a very successful and enjoyable time at the athletics meeting at Withdean on Wednesday 16th June. Harlem, Agnes, Nasir, Fern, Chloe and Eilish all won gold medals and Sita won two gold medals. Kavanagh won a silver medal, and Declan, Molly, Kizzie, Agnes, Ivy, Kavanagh, Daniel, Zephir, Oliver, Jonathan and Nasir all won bronze medals.

The team was a credit to the school, Mrs Busby was so proud of them all. She was delighted with their behaviour, and their very supportive attitudes toward each other.

A reminder that Sports Day for Years 1 to 6 will be held at Withdean Stadium on Thursday 1st July – letters with full details will be sent home next week.

Congratulations to Harlem Eubank

Harlem won a cup in a recent Karate competition and is going to compete in the British Nationals on 26th June. Good Luck Harlem!

Congratulations also to Madeleine Houghton and Sophie Walters

both in Year 1 for completing the National Swim Award Level 3 – well done to both of you.

The Ugly Bugs

Year 1 visited Waterstone’s Bookshop to meet Liz Pichon, the author of The Very Ugly Bug. She read the book to them, and they made their own ugly bugs. The class had a wonderful time and Ms Pichon was most impressed by how well the children behaved and how keen they all were. Well done Year 1

We plan to have a leavers’ disco to say goodbye to our Year 6 children on Friday 9th July. It will be for children in Years 3 to 6. For this to take place we will need help from parents. If you are able to help please let the office staff know. Thank you.
