Champions!

They’ve done it again! For two years in a row now, our Middleton Table Tennis team has been crowned Champions. Competing against 10 other schools, they managed to win all their matches. They displayed tremendous skills and professional concentration during the tournament. Well done!

Science With Year 6 Wollaton Hall

Science With Year 6 Wollaton Hall

As part of our science curriculum, the children in Year 6 were invited to an event at Wollaton Hall called ‘After Dinner Nap – Food and Sleep’. The children took part in two workshops: one with a professor from the University of Nottingham based on the world’s most common bird, the chicken; the other, a tour of Wollaton Hall with its curator, looking at the many species of animals on display and learning about their sleep patterns. We learnt many fascinating facts about animals and birds of all kinds and it proved to be a highly interesting and educational experience. The museum are hoping to set up a Citizen’s Science research project into sleep as a result of this event.

Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of welcoming two German exchange students from Bilborough College. They stayed with us for three days engaging the children and introducing them to German life and culture. Our pupils really enjoyed meeting these young people and learning about what it is like to be a young person in Germany today.

Year 6 – Kingswood

As we settle in for night 2 at Kingswood, we have shared our favourite moments. So far highlights include: raft building, zip wire and archery (oh and of course the food). We are looking forward to the climbing wall tomorrow. We have had lovely weather for the most part and are all happy and healthy. We will continue to send regular messages through marvellousme. We are looking forward to seeing you all Friday.
