Athletics Superstars

Several of our school athletes took part in the Brighton and Hove Small Schools Athletics championships on Wednesday. They won the award for coming second overall in their division. They also won the ‘jump cup’ for coming in at first place for the jumping event. Felix from Year 6 did the longest throw breaking the record for all Brighton and Hove schools. There were also 6 individual Gold medals, 8 silver and 9 bronze won by our amazing Middle Street athletes! Thank you and well done to all those who took part.

Fun at Little Canada

Year 6 returned from their weekend residential trip to Little Canada on the Isle of Wight on Monday afternoon. They were tired after a very busy weekend of activities. Lots of photos were taken over the course of the stay which they will use in diary-writing to record their wonderful adventure. You can see some of their activity photos on the website.

Soundmakers performance

Year 5 performed for us brilliantly on Thursday morning. Over the past few months they have each been learning to play a musical instrument and also composing a piece of music which they played for us during their performance. Well done Year 5 you were fabulous!
