Wet Playtimes

We go out to play whatever the weather. If it is raining children need a WATERPROOF COAT and WATERPROOF SHOES or WELLIES. Please remember to send your child with appropriate wet and cold weather clothing to school even if you travel to school in a car.

Football News

On Wednesday Middle Street football team kicked off their season by taking part in a 7 a side tournament at East Brighton Park. The team played very well improving as  they played. The team played with real team spirit coming 4th overall in the tournament. Mr Brosnan took the children along to the tournament, complimenting the team on their 1 – 0 victory over St Josephs Primary and their Barcelona-esc performance in a 2-2 draw against Coldean Primary. Well done team and thanks to Mr Brosnan and Mr Wright for accompanying the children.
