Another Middle Street Baby!

I am delighted to announce the safe arrival of another Middle Street baby. Yvie Mason our Reception teacher gave birth yesterday morning to a baby girl; Elsie Bee weighing in at 7lbs 6ozs. Our next baby is due after Easter. Abi St Claire our Reception teaching assistant leaves for her maternity leave at the end of this term.

Bedtime Story

On Wednesday evening we closed the blinds put on our PJs and snuggled down for a bedtime story. Children were invited back to their class at 5 on Wednesday evening to listen to their teacher read a bedtime story to them. Everyone was cosy and comfy enjoying a cup of hot chocolate while they listened. Thank you to everyone who made it back to school for the story.

Wear a Wig Day

To support Red Nose Day and help raise money for charity we thought we would celebrate by wearing a wig to school next Friday 15th March. Change your whole look with an outrageous wig or perhaps something more subtle. If you don’t have a wig to hand then a wacky hairdo will be just fine. Please donate 50p and leave at the school office. Parents and carers please join in too. We’ll be looking out for the most interesting wig or hairdo.

Parent and Carer Consultation Evenings

A reminder that you should have received your parents evening consultation letter this week with details of making an appointment. If you have not already done so please make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss your child’s learning progress. You can phone the office to make an appointment if necessary.

Brighton V Huddersfield

We had an absolutely fabulous time last week at the Brighton v Huddersfield game at the Amex stadium. The children we took along were amazing and really got into the spirit of the event! How lovely that they could make as much noise as they wanted and it didn’t matter! Thank you to the school staff who gave up their Saturday to come along with the children to the game. Thank you too to those parents who sent me an appreciative email. I’m looking forward to going again if we get the chance.

Lets Dance

Year 3 are performing at the Brighton Schools Let’s Dance event on Wednesday 20th March. The children have been rehearsing and are now putting the final touches to their jitterbug dance.

Children’s Parade

Middle Street will be in the children’s festival parade this year. The theme is ‘The Lexicon of Life’ (the alphabet) we are letter Y our entry will be the yellow submarine. Mrs Purdy and Mrs Holton need your creative and making skills. If you are able to help come along to the first meeting taking place on Monday next week in the library at 9.00 am.

Saying Goodbye to Emma

We are saying goodbye to Emma Cave our school counsellor at the end of this term. Emma has been working with us supporting children for 8 years. We are very sorry to say goodbye to Emma as she is very much part and a valued member of the Middle Street team. The school is moving from the current counselling service to a different Counselling service; Dolphin House and naturally they have their own counsellors.

Family SEAL

We have been a bit disappointed that our group for this term’s Family SEAL is so small. We need a much bigger group to make it more fun and interactive. It is not too late to join and remember it’s a great way to meet and know other parents. So please let the school office know if you would like to give it go. You will be pleased you did. Sessions are aimed at parents of key stage 2 children and are on held on Tuesday afternoons.

Full Governors Meeting

This terms full governors meeting takes place on Thursday 14th March. Minutes of the meetings can be found on the governors notice board in the school foyer.

Ruby Gets the Chop!

Ruby Sparks-Wilson has been so inspired by her part in the fashion show for Comic Relief that she has decided to try to raise more money to help. She is getting the chop for charity, cutting all of her very long hair off in to a short crop to help change lives, As well as raising money Ruby will donate her hair to a wig making cancer charity. She has a giving page and you can sponsor her at: https://my.rednoseday.com/sponsor/rubysw

To raise money for Red Nose Day Lucy, Eve, Daisy, Jody, Cara, Lili, Lillie, Jade and Jasmine are going to spend next Friday in silence. Yes that’s in silence throughout the day! Can they do it? They will be dressed in their pyjamas for the day. If you wish to sponsor them you can find them in the playground at playtimes and the end of the day with their red nose collection bucket
