Spring has Sprung!

Has Spring arrived? I do hope so! Welcome back to everyone and I hope you had a chocolate filled Easter break. We have some new children joining us this term so on behalf of the middle street families and staff I warmly welcome you to Middle Street.

We are also welcoming Emma Goddardto the Reception class team. Emma is covering Abi St Claire’s maternity leave.

We had a fabulous turn out for our Friday morning sing along. Lots of parents and children joined us to sing before the start of the day today. Do come along and join us on Friday mornings at 8.35 in the school hall. Everyone is welcome.

We had a number of children who ran in the Brighton (mini) Marathon on Sunday. They are: Harry from Year 2 who raised £200 for Barnados. Charlie from Year 6 came second. Other children who ran were Josh from year 2, Louie, Isabella, Sophia and Greta from Year 3. Lily and Eliot from Year 4 and Lillie and Jahlil from Year 6.
