The Sun Has Got It’s Hat On!

Finally the sun is shining and about time too! Please remember to ensure your child is protected from the sun by providing them with a sun hat and sun cream whilst at school. Clothing should cover shoulders and backs. We are outside a lot this time of year so please help us to help your child avoid sunburn. It is tempting for girls to wear short skirts and dresses at this time of year. It can be a little embarrassing for them though when they are asked to do certain activities or sit on the carpet and the skirt is not ‘protecting their modesty’. Please make sure dresses and skirts are long enough and comfortable enough to allow freedom of movement without embarrassment.

Busy Week for Years 5 and 6

Groups of children from 5 and 6 are taking part in sporting events next week. On Monday 8 girls will be taking part in a Beach Soccer competition, on Tuesday it’s the boys turn. The event is being run by Brighton and Hove Albion. On Wednesday a group of children will be representing Middle Street at the Primary Schools Athletics yearly event at Withdean Stadium and on Thursday Year 5 children are taking part in a cricket tournament. Poor Ms Busby’s head is spinning with all the organisation. Thanks Ms Busby for arranging for Middle Street to take part in these events.
On Friday Year 6 will have a day of creativity. They will be taking part in a screen printing workshop for the whole day.
