What’s on at Middleton Primary
Well done to all of our cross country runners who competed in a 1.5km race at Wollaton Park this week. Despite the muddy and wet conditions, the children performed excellently! Our boys’ team came in first place and all left with a gold medal! Huge congratulations go to Oliver Jakubiak who finished first overall and to George Sinski who finished second. What a fantastic achievement!
RRSA and School Council have been working hard to produce their own School Improvement Plan and here it is:
Middleton Primary and Nursery School
School Improvement Plan 2018-19
Make sure that the Rights Respecting School Award is part of everyone’s education at Middleton and try to achieve the Gold award again.
Make sure that the adults who help run the school (staff and governors) are working together to do the best they can for everyone at Middleton.
Keep the school running as normally as we can during the building works, and be ready for having an extra class start each year.
Teaching and learning
Teachers will try to help us to get even better at Maths and Writing. We will be given more time to do longer pieces of Writing by ourselves.
When we find things harder in Reading, Writing and Maths, teachers will try to give us extra help so we can catch up.
Lots of our work this term has been based on the theme of Into the Forest. We have enjoyed learning about the tales of Robin Hood and other forest related stories. We visited Sherwood Forest on a beautiful autumn day where we met Maid Marion. We have learnt how to use a bow and arrow in our PE lessons. We finished the topic with an amazing dress up day and built castles with special features to keep the enemy out.
On Thursday 8th November, Year 5 and Year 6 were invited to take part in the Games of Remembrance at Meadow Lane Stadium where the British Army played a friendly football game against the German Armed Forces. The event was very moving and our pupils behaved beautifully during the whole ceremony.
Here are some more pictures of our residential trip at Kingswood. The children had so much fun.
Here are some photos of the Y6 children from Kingswood. Activities the children have enjoyed so far include archery, high ropes, the leap of faith, laser quest, nightline, orienteering… We are having so much fun!
Last week 12 pupils had a fun day out at the Tennis Centre. Mark Dennison ,from BBC Radio Nottingham, interviewed some of them. Here is the Podcast:
The Nottingham High School Festival took place last week and our cricket team won all their matches. The boys displayed amazing skills and unity in adversity during some difficult games. Well done! You are Champions!
Well done Year 1 and 2 for your amazing singing and instrument playing. We all had a fantastic time raising money for our sister school in Togo. A big thank you to Miss Need for helping us organise this fantastic event.
The children have been learning about how to stay safe in the sun with the 5 s – slip, slop, slap, sunglasses and shade. We have designed posters to put around the school. Have you spotted one yet?
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).
The video of our trip to China is now on our YouTube channel. Just type Middleton Primary School trip China or follow the link below:
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!
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.
