Sports Day

Fantastic! Another fabulous, sunny Middle Street Sports Day. Every year we are stunned at how many talented athletes we have in the school. Well done to all the children who took part and a special mention to Gabriel Archibald in Year 6 who took part in many events to cover the absence of others in his team. Thank you to all you lovely parents and carers who came and cheered every one on.

School Summer Fair

I am sure you all enjoyed the rather marvellous Summer Fair this year. Thank you to everyone who came along to join in the fun and an extra special round of applause to Mark Williams who compered the Talent Show. Well done to all the members of the School Association.

Athletic Championships

Ms Busby and a large group of Key Stage 2 children attended the Brighton and Hove’s Athletic Championships at Withdean stadium on Tuesday. As always the children representing Middle Street were brilliant and did very well. Between them they won 10 bronze medals, 8 silver medals and 8 gold medals. Well done to all who went along and thank you to the parents who kindly helped on the day.

Smugglers Adventure

Year 3 are off today on an adventure exploring the smugglers caves in Hastings. They are finding out about pirates and smugglers as part of their learning journey.

Blackberry Farm

Nursery and Reception children are spending today at Blackberry Farm. I’m sure they are having a wonderful time exploring and petting the animals.

Little Canada

Year 6 are on their way to the Isle of Wight to enjoy a fun packed weekend of adventures at ‘Little Canada’. They are joined by Mr Dawson, Ms Sinclaire, Mr Collins and I will be joining them later today.

Library Book Amnesty

Please could you check at home for Middle Street library books that need returning to our library. Do not worry if you have had them for some time we won’t be charging an over due fee or scowling at you. We will just be pleased to have the books returned.

School Association Coffee Morning

The next School Association coffee morning takes place on Wednesday 2nd July at 9.00.

Musical Celebration

Unfortunately we will not be able to invite parents and carers in for our end of year musical celebrations. This is, as you have probably guessed due to fire safety regulations, which limit the number of people we can have in the hall. It wasn’t possible to find another venue although we tried very hard to do so. The children will still take part in a musical celebration before the end of term. The highlights will be on the web site for you to enjoy.

Water Works Road Closure

Southern water will be carrying out improvements to the water works in Boyces Street. It is anticipated the work will begin on Monday June 30th. Boyces Street will be closed to traffic for approximately 3 weeks from that date. The school may be without a water supply for periods of time. Hopefully this will not cause any serious problems to the running of the school.

Congratulations to…

Robbie Clancy in year 1 who has achieved his Ninppo grade and been awarded his Green belt. Well done Robbie!

End of Term

We close for the summer holidays at 3.05 pm on Tuesday 22nd July and re-open on Monday 8th September.

Nursery Re-opens on Monday 15th September
