Christmas Fair – Runaway Success

Fun and Christmas cheer were enjoyed by all yesterday at the wonderful Christmas Fair. Great singing from the children on the Karaoke was also enjoyed. There were presents from Father Christmas in the Grotto too. We would like to say a big thank you to Father Christmas for taking time out from his busy schedule to come and join us at the Fair.
Amazing raffle and Tombola prizes were won by many. This all helped us to raise £2018.25! Well done to all the parents, carers and local businesses who helped to make the Christmas Fair such an amazing event.

Learning Journeys Celebrated

Teachers and children invited parents and carers into class this week to celebrate the end of this term’s Learning Journey and to share the projects they have been working on. We have asked parents and carers to complete feedback sheets on the Learning Journeys, which many have handed in already. If you have taken one home please remember to complete it and hand it in to the class teacher or the office. The feedback so far has been very positive. I will send an overview of the feedback home to you in the new term and hopefully answer any questions raised.

Bats’ Breakfast Fun

Year 1 had a great time returning to an empty, dark school on Wednesday. They explored their classroom with torches and enjoyed bat snacks in the dark.

No Dogs Please

Please could I remind everyone that dogs are not allowed on school premises at any time. This includes the playground. Dogs should be either left at home or tied up outside the school away from the school gates. This is for the safety of the children and because we have some children in school who can have allergic reactions to dogs.

Christmas Break

We finish for the Christmas break today and children return to school on Tuesday the 6th of January (Nursery on the 7th due to home visits for new children).

Thank you for the many cards and presents sent in to staff.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you from all of us at Middle Street.
