Sports Equipment Presented to School

Sainsburys were kind enough to donate some colourful and exciting sports equipment to the school from their Active Kids selection. As he was in town Kevin Brennan the MP and shadow minister for schools came along to our assembly on Tuesday to present to the equipment. The highlight of the assembly was when cheeky Mr Smart got Ms Busby skipping alongside Kevin Brennan!

Parent/Carer Consultation

Our parent and carer consultation evening dates for the autumn term are: Wednesday 2nd October and Thursday 3rd October (Year 4 Tuesday 1st October and Thursday 3rd October). A letter was sent home yesterday with details. If you did not receive one please ask for a copy as soon as possible at the office.

Governors Business Meeting

The Middle Street governing body met yesterday evening to elect the chair and organise committees etc. Anna Clark has been elected as our chairperson. Anna is a parent governor and will hold the position for a year. Hannah Jefferies (a parent governor) is working with a group of governors to develop a governor’s page on the school website. This will hopefully help the school community have a better understanding of the role of a governor and the work they do supporting and challenging the school ensuring it provides the best outcomes for all Middle Street children.

On-Time Teds

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Year reception and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Year 5. Well done to both classes for being on time for school!

Silly Dressing Up Day

Pay a £1 and wear something wild and wacky to school on the last day of half term (Thursday 24th October). Be as imaginative and as colourful as you can. The money raised will go towards buying some new playtime games and equipment such as a new hockey set, foam balls for football and new champ balls.

Bike It Launch

A bike it launch is to take place on the Lewes Road on 5th October. I am told more information to follow.

Walk to School Week

Walk to school week takes place week beginning 14th October. Get your walking shoes ready!

Pesky Pests

Please check your child’s hair regularly for head lice. Those pesky pests are quite busy at the moment swinging around from head to head.

Ms Trojanowski has lost her Kindle Fire Tablet. She left it overnight in school inside a yellow bag. It was left in the year 1 and 2 shared area. The tablet has a white cover with colourful dots. Please return the tablet as soon as possible if it has been mistakenly picked up. The tablet actually belongs to her son Josh who is very upset.

We break for the autumn half term on Thursday 24th October and return to school on Tuesday 5th November.
