10th June 2011

Welcome back and here we are at the beginning of the last half term for this academic year. I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by. There are lots of lovely events coming up for you to enjoy and if the sun shines too it’s going to be a great few weeks.

Book Week

Book week begins next week on Monday 13th June. Throughout the week there will be lots of book related activities, authors and illustrators, workshops and storytelling. On Tuesday there’s a book character dressing up day for us all. Dressing up is something we are all very good at here at Middle Street! There will also be a book fair with books on sale. The book fair helps raise funds for the school as we receive commission on the sale of books.

 Reception Healthy Eating

Reception are looking forward to their being healthy workshops on Monday. They will have a PE session led by a representative of Brighton and Hove Albion and fruity smoothies made by the a volunteer team from Amex

Year 5 Dance Practice

Year 5 spent this morning practicing their dance for the Family Festival. They joined Aldrington Primary school in Hove for the practice session.

Greenwich Trip

Reception will return later this afternoon after an informative and fun Learning Journey trip to the Greenwich Maritime museum.

Gaveston Hall Residential

Year 4, and accompanying staff had a fabulous time at their residential trip this week. They experienced a wide range of outdoor activities and spent 2 nights at the hall.

Middle Street attended with another 3 schools. So they had the chance to meet their peers from other local schools.

The trip is arranged through the city centre partnership group of 10 schools which Middle Street is a member of. Our special thanks go to Mrs Du Pre the Head of St Pauls Primary who organises the activities and oversees the whole trip.

The Royal Pavilion Year 1 & 2 Visit

Year 1 and Year 2 are off to visit the Royal Pavilion as part of their Learning Journey work. They will be exploring and finding out the history of the Royal Pavilion on Thursday 16th June.

Scooters and Bikes Update

On Wednesday lunchtime you may have spotted Ms Moriarty, Mrs Jones, Mr Smart and Ms Bryant (who at the time was in fancy dress as the Queen of Hearts, slightly surreal!) and I walking determinedly down North Street. We were on a quest to challenge 2 lads who we recognised as 2 of a larger group of ‘scooter thieves’. You will be pleased to know they were confronted, one ran off but the other confessed and passed on names of others involved. The Police arrived and the matter was dealt with by them. Hopefully we will no longer have any further problems. In case we do though you can now request from the office a special scooter rack attachment. For a £1 deposit you can use the attachment to secure the scooter to the rack. All you have to do is purchase a pad lock to use with the attachment. We are also having another scooter rack added in the next couple of weeks. 

Little Canada

Year 6 are looking forward to their trip ‘abroad’ to Little Canada on the Isle of Wight. They leave on Friday 24th June for a long weekend.
