We saw a brown bear just like in the Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see? book. Nature is clever. We saw a snake. You have to be careful because they are wild. My favourite one was the snake. It was fun. They were weird. BW

Year 1 Ice Skating Lessons Spring 2019

Some children from 1K have written about our 6 ice skating lessons.

Year 1 went Ice Skating. Ice is slippy but if someone goes to ice skating you want to fall and get freezing. You need safety. You need gloves and coats and a scarf too When I went ice skating I was nervous but I did it and I was delicate. SR

Year 1 went to ice skating. I was scared to go on the ice. The teacher said I was good. I was surprised to go on the ice. I love ice skating. I found it easier when I carried on. SV

Year 1 ice skaing. Firse when we went ice skating I was scared. But then I got used to it. I was a little more clam. Every Wednesday I got really excited and more. When I got there I always tried my best. Ice skating is real hard but when you practise it gets easier and easier. After we were learning we had fun time. When we were going I got sad. IM

This term year 1 went ice skating. The first time going ice skating I was proud of myself for going ice skating and not holding onto the side. I was excited to go. James was good at ice skating because he is good a roller skating. A

RRSA + School Council: New School Improvement Plan

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

Overall

Make sure that the Rights Respecting School Award is part of everyone’s education at Middleton and try to achieve the Gold award again.

Leadership

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.

Into the Forest with Year 2

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.
