Mulled Wine and Mince Pies

Thank you to everyone who came along on Tuesday and joined us for a festive treat of mince pies and mulled wine. It was a very enjoyable hour or so and raised enough money to purchase the basket ball hoops needed for the playground. Thank you to the Education Assistants who worked hard and organised the event.
Thank you to Infinity Foods who donated mulling spices and cinnamon sticks, to Sainsbury’s Local in Western Road who donated a tin of Quality Street and to the Lewes road Sainsbury’s who donated a voucher.

Christmas Dinner

As usual the children’s Christmas dinner was a lively affair with all the staff joining in. There were crackers to pull, music to sing a long to and a delicious dinner to enjoy. Thank you to the kitchen staff for the delicious festive feast.

Christmas Cards

A group of children went with Ms Layzell to deliver Christmas cards to St Patrick’s night shelter. The cards have been passed on to the homeless people who use the shelter. The cards were very much appreciated and enjoyed by everyone. A big thank you from St Patricks night shelter to all the children at Middle Street.

Indian Dance

Year 3 enjoyed performing their Indian dance to their parents on Thursday afternoon. The children performed their dance as part of their topic on India.

Thank You

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first term as Head Teacher of Middle Street school. Thank you every one for all your support and a very special thank you to all the Middle Street children for being so very clever and such great fun to work with!

Children return to school on Wednesday 4th January.

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you all.
