All at Sea with Year 5

This morning Year 5 sang to us and told us all sorts of interesting facts about sea creatures and how a submarine works. Thank you Year 5 for a fabulous and interesting assembly.

The Real Stars of the Show

On Sunday evening when you were at home watching ‘Songs of Praise’ members of the children’s Middle Street Choir along with Mr Brazil, Mrs Denyer and myself performed on stage at the Theatre Royal with the Drifters. How cool (and very exciting) was that!  We have been beside ourselves with joy since being invited to perform with the Drifters. The only school in Brighton and Hove invited to do so. Michael Williams from the Drifters visited us in school earlier in the term He asked us to sing two songs and to practice them before the show. On the night we performed those songs which are a couple of old favourites: ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ and ‘Stand by Me’. Everyone was up out of their seats and dancing in the aisles while we sang.  So Middle Street children really were the stars of the show!

PTA Halloween Disco and Film

Thank you so much to the three or four parents and carers who organised two nights of Halloween fun for the children of Middle Street. You did a brilliant job and raised over £300 for the school. Organising such events is quite a challenge. So please if you wish for such lovely fund raising events to continue for your school please do your best to contribute and help where you can.
Do remember that the organisers of these events are not responsible for managing the behaviour of the children so another way to help the organisers is to ensure your child is enjoying themselves but doing so sensibly. The events themselves are a treat but in addition to that our children benefit from the money raised long term. At the moment funds raised by the PTA are going towards playground equipment, gardens and other playground developments over time.
Thank you once again to the team and to those parents who pitched in at the end of the event and helped to clear up.

Parent Carer Consultation Evenings

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Parent/Carer consultation evenings this week. If you were not able to make it we will be in touch to arrange another time for you to meet with your child’s teacher.
