Fabulous Christmas Performances

Once again the Middle Street children have used their many acting and singing talents to put on 2 wonderful Christmas performances for us. Every year we never cease to be amazed at how brilliantly the children perform. It is such a pleasure to see the enjoyment and pride on their faces when they get the applause from the audience. Thank you to every one, staff, parents, carers and children for making it a brilliant afternoon. Mrs Purdy, the props were brilliant!

Finalist City in Bloom

Flo Osborne Jones in Year 1 recently entered the City in Bloom competition with a flower garden design. I am very pleased to announce that Flo’s design is to be entered for the finals in August. Flo’s design will be made up and displayed in Preston Park where the judging takes place. Well done and good luck Flo!

Year 4 Gymnasts through to Finals

10 of our Year 4 children went along to a Gymnastics competition on Wednesday and won! They will now go through to the finals in March. Well done to all those children and thank you Ms Layzell who prepared and accompanied the children to the competition.

Request for Resources

Ms Stewart needs hessian sacks to fill with sand. She also would like old style wallpaper in 1930’s or 1940’s style. If you think you could help Ms Stewart with any of the above or with any 30s or 40s kitchen or other equipment please let her know.

Wonderful Wall

You may have noticed the brilliant artwork on the wall outside reception. The artist who produced this for us is an artist known as Req ( who is also a parent of a child in school). If you haven’t seen it yet take a look as it is brilliant! Ms Martin is creating a quiet and peaceful area for playtimes. Req came in and met with the School Council and together they came up with the design for the wall. We are hoping to brighten up other outside walls with Req’s artwork in the future.

Dinner Money
