Chicks in 2H

We were so lucky to have the chicks come to visit us in 2H. The children enjoyed holding the chicks gently. They were surprised by how light they were and how their claws were not sharp (even though they looked it).

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

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.
