A “poisson d’avril” ( April’s Fish) is a joke made on April 1st. In France, children try to stick a fish picture on their friends’ back. When the joke is discovered, they shout “poisson d’avril !”. We loved it and we even put some fishes on teachers’ backs.
On Tuesday 27th February, Year 3 went to the Lakeside Arts Centre to explore what life was like as a Viking. The children had opportunities to create different types of jewellery and developed Viking Poetry with a young poet Laureate from Nottingham called Georgina Wilding.
The children also had time to visit the exhibition where they engaged with the information and played games as well as dressing up as a Viking person.

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.
A Sinoraptor visited Middleton yesterday. Look at the children’s faces!
