Brighton and Hove Schools Olympic Torch

The Brighton and Hove schools Olympic torch arrived at Middle Street onTuesday. The whole school were in the playground to applaud the arrival of the torch and then we all celebrated with a little bit of Zumba. On Wednesday morning, Saffie, Teddy and I walked the torch up to St Mary Magdalen Primary where we were greeted by a playground full of children all cheering. Saffie and Teddy ran a lap of the playground before passing on the torch. Thank you Saffie and Teddy for representing our school for this special Olympic event.

Sports Relief Zumba

We all really enjoyed the Zumba sessions over the last few weeks and especially enjoyed last Fridays Sports Relief event. We have had little bursts of Zumba this week too. If we hear the music we can’t help but burst into our Zumba moves! So I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Daly for all his time and effort making sure we learnt the moves and had such a great time. Thank you Mr Daly we look forward to more Zumba in the future!
