On Tuesday 25 July, we had a whole school picnic in Wollaton Park. We played cricket, football, parachute games, skipping ropes etc. The children particularly enjoyed meeting up with older siblings and other family members. Once again this annual event was a crowd-pleaser. A real sense of community could be felt as everyone came together to sit, chat and share. A big thank you to everyone who gave their time and support.
Our Chinese friends: more pictures.
Here is the article from ITV Central news:” A group of Chinese school children are visiting Nottingham for the first time after a relationship between a school here and one in China was formed. Middleton Primary in Wollaton has a sister school in Ningbo Province. 41 nine-year-olds have travelled over to the UK to spend a couple of days in Nottingham. They will be practicing English, sampling school dinners and joining in with everyday routines at the school. 10 Middleton pupils will make the return trip March next year.” The link to the video is in the post.
Last week we were very excited to welcome 42 pupils and 4 staff from our partner school in Ningbo China. We planned a super day of exciting activities so that our friends can learn more English and we can learn more Chinese. We had a special Farewell Presentation with an amazing display of dance and music from our friends. What a great experience for everyone involved! We can’t wait to send some of our pupils to China in March 2018.
The muggy weather on Wednesday morning didn’t alter any spirits at the latest pupils v teachers football game at Middleton Primary School. As the players took to their positions on the pitch, pupils lined up at the sides eager to cheer on their peers, or for some , their favourite teachers. The adults were sure to face stiff competition but they never expected such a skillful display from the children.The final score doesn’t need any comment: 3 – 1.Following this crushing defeat to the Year 6/5 squad , the teachers have decided to be back with a vengeance next year.
