Middle Street Christmas Stars

All the Middle Street children were absolutely brilliant yesterday. I was so proud of them not just once, but twice.
In the morning they had to cope with a power cut after walking to the theatre and not doing their dress rehearsal as planned. Then in the afternoon they walked onto the unfamiliar stage and put on fabulous performances for us all. Well done Middle Street children you really are superstars!!

Primary Schools Christmas Carol Concert

On Monday evening our school choir sang at the Primary Schools Christmas Carol Concert held at the Brighton Centre. As always this festive event was lively and fun and of course the Middle Street choir sang brilliantly. Thanks Mr Brazil for teaching the choir the songs and accompanying the children to this event.

Fire Safety Talk

On Tuesday children in Year 2 and Year 5 enjoyed a fire safety discussion with the East Sussex fire service. Research Project Sussex University are conducting a research project with children from Years 2, 4 and 6 next week. Parents and carers should have received a letter home with details of the project about 10 days ago. If you have a child in one of those year groups and didn’t receive the letter please contact the school office. The researchers are visiting the school on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday. It is not stressful for the children and simply involves a 10 minute questionnaire. Everything is of course confidential and names are not used. We have worked with Sussex University and Dr Robin Banerjee on many interesting projects in the past.
